    I have been working at RHA Behavioral Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A sense of well doing at the end of the day. Interaction with those less fortunate eventually makes one realize how precious life is. Builds skills in teamwork and social interaction.

    Cons

    Messy at times, behaviors and a need for patience(which could be considered a pro for some).

    Advice to Management

    Follow behind the people you lead. Make sure that they are doing what they need to be doing, but most of all don't lose sight of the ultimate goal which is to care and show love for the children.

    I worked at RHA Behavioral Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The clients, the clients, the clients...as everyone says, the clients are great. If only staff were appreciated for the hard work they do to serve the clients.

    Cons

    Absolutely no positive reinforcement. Negative reinforcement and punishment are the instruments used by management.

    Advice to Management

    Realize how very hard your staff work, and stop making negative comments to them about how they are not seeing enough people. Do something to help the organization run more smoothly---like getting rid of incompetent and surly staff members.

    Pros

    Corporate expense account, free alcohol at company sponsored events, learning the hard way what to avoid in your next job search.

    Cons

    Ridiculous policies, middle management who know just enough to be dangerous, and a have/have not culture between management and line staff.

    Advice to Management

    You are not better than your front line staff. Really.

    I have been working at RHA Behavioral Health full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The clients, and some of the house managers and staff that you will work with on shift. I'm at a loss for any other positive thing to note.

    Cons

    Literally anything pertaining to the corporate office, or the local administration office. The corporate office is greed driven, and the local administration positions are filled with people who are completely out of their depth. There isn't an effective chain of command in place at the local level and as a result issues, especially employee related issues are never resolved. The lower level positions are 90% filled with African Immigrants which also causes a problem in that it keeps the wages down. They are for the most part wonderful people, but they lack the understanding of what it means to be an American Worker. They settle for 1990 wages in a 2014 world. As a result they often work multiple jobs, with multiple agencies, working 80 plus hours a week, and producing substandard work. You will find a great majority of these workers having to sleep on the job. But be that as it may, it aides corporate in their mission to keep overhead at a minimum. In turn RHA and just about all of these agencies will blame state cut backs for the flat wages and other issues a worker might face in this industry. I find it amusing though that upper level administrators and those at the corporate office have no problem giving themselves ridiculous bonuses, take notice that you will not receive regular raises while in RHA's employ. There have been no raises since 2008. There was a rather lack luster bonus in 2010 but it was almost a slap in the face, an insult. There hasn't been a raise for lower level workers since 2008. As of 2014 the corporate office is supposedly looking to correct this but nothing has happened to date. When the economy and jobs return in this area I'll drop RHA like a bad habit.

    Advice to Management

    What would it even matter? At this rate one can only warn people who are seeking viable job opportunities... Try paying a living wage.

    Pros

    My manager is laid back and helpful. Upper management isn't micromanagers. Regional manager, Jay, is super cool and invests in his employees. I feel like when I graduate with my master's there will be so much opportunity for me and they will be willing to invest in my future. Clients I have are super cool and I am SO glad I landed with RHA.

    Cons

    Changes coming from the MCO have made the entire organization chaotic.

    Advice to Management

    Consider merit based raises.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits (insurance offered is BCBS of GA--a bit of a problem due to being in NC).

    Cons

    Rediculous amount of paperwork. Communication is terrible. Non Licensed personnel seem to be extremely insecure.

    Advice to Management

    Say what you mean and mean what you say! Trust that you hired the right employee for the job and then give him as much information as you can so that he can do his job well.
