    Pros

    Flexible schedule
    Positive atmosphere
    Competitive pay
    Opportunity for training and clinical/team feedback
    Supportive Management

    Cons

    Stressful/Demanding work environment
    Hard to feel part of a team
    Would be very difficult to start w/out considerable prior experience in the field

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better training and supervision, don't hire lower level staff through open interview format- low buy-in on the part of employees is the main fault in the system.

    Fantastic place to work

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Resources For Human Development

    Pros

    Open environment, great communication, terrific people, the ability to come to work in the morning and go home at night feeling good about what you do, the knowledge that you're making a difference, being part of a place that's about something important and is always trying out new and innovative ideas.

    Cons

    We'd all like to make more money. But Resources' salaries are about what you'd expect for a human services corporation, and they look for ways to add extra benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We're proud to work at Resources for Human Development, and hope you'll keep this values-based organization moving forward into the future while holding to the ideals and values that make it great

    Pros

    The company does good work in behavioral health and is making a difference in many peoples lives. Excellent vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Salary is low but this is typical in non-profits. Newer managers do not hold the company values as dearly as long time employees which can lead to a stressful work environment and overall unhappiness.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that new employees know and live the RHD values better.

    Former Employee - Psychiatric Rehabilitation Worker in Lehighton, PA
    Former Employee - Psychiatric Rehabilitation Worker in Lehighton, PA

    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits all around, the company follows a set of values which I saw carried out within the program I worked for, employees are encouraged to voice their opinions and ideas, if there is a conflict there are people within the company who serve as mediators to help resolve the issue, flexible and freedom in scheduling appointments with clients and taking time off, employer provides and encourages employees to gain more training, uses liberal-based approaches, company is continuing to grow and expand, rated as one of the best companies to work for in Philly, and most of all, you see the impact and changes these programs have had in increasing the overall quality of life in the people who are being served!!

    Cons

    Very disorganized at times, sharing office space makes it difficult for ensuring confidentiality with clients, saw a lot of inept people hired and fired who were given multiple chances of proving themselves and changing when they should have probably been fired from the gecko, inefficient computer program for documenting notes/plans (although I think it may have changed by now), boundaries set between staff and clients were questionable at times

    Pros

    The people are amazing! Ability to move around.

    Cons

    There are many agencies under RHD and not all of them run as stable as the RHD values say.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For LMCS, a agency under RHD, listen to your employees. We are in the front lines and have a great concept of what will help it work better!

    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lack of micro-management, empowered, training, opportunities for advancement

    Cons

    I have witnessed some HUB (department) directors with too much power firing people because they just don't 'like' them. Many HUBs have major management drama, and I was lucky.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have honest conversations with lower-ranked employees and REALLY listen to their concerns as to how they are not being supported & the drama from their directors.

    Pros

    Mostly patient/consumer centered and has a lot of great employees

    Cons

    A few people at the regional level tend to run the company with personal ambitions which includes witch hunting

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Visit programs and talk to the staff. Do surprise visits and interview staff away from the local managements especially in the NE region. The place is falling apart.
