    I worked at Resources For Human Development

    Pros

    Services are highly professional & critically needed. Service protocols are well defined specific to their mission to prevent unnecessary hospitalizations. Management employees seemed dedicated and interested to ensure work is understood. To that end, training was thorough so that new employees will be capable of answering crisis calls and responding to most required interventions.
    Many RHD employees are devoted, loyal, compassionate and committed to their work.

    Cons

    Did not receive information on how to process paid time for work performed. Actually worked 4 months without being paid. Level of managements concerns regarding paid time due did not seem to be a priority until I resigned.
    RHD employees are not trained to deal with substance abuse. During training, I was told that crisis calls involving substance abuse disqualified eligibility for RHD crisis services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is needed. Some employees considered managers lacked maturity and critical people skills. I observed managers who seemed to avoid contact with new employees until they had a reason to correct the new employee about work performance. Not all seemed to be "guarded" (for lack of a better description), but my training and experiences in management prioritized the skill to engage with all employees, especially new employees.

    Pros

    Values driven, gives you the opportunity to succeed, autonomy, great people

    Cons

    No room for advancement, benefits are severely lacking, better to look good than to be good, little to no contact with superior,

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Growth is important, but managed growth would be better. Units that are succeeding are dragged down by those that aren't. It's too easy for certain personalities to pull the wool over managements eyes.

    Pros

    I'm shocked they're still in business!

    Cons

    They are bold faved liars and will not hesitate to screw you over. It is a very top heavy company. They are very controlling. They do not give managers any authority but micro - manage every move you make. They make decisions for the clients that spare not in their best interest and do not respect their human rights.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Whoever runs this company needs to know what the management in the offices are up to. The company is very poorly run, I doubt that the higher - ups are aware of what goes on " in the trenches".pay is terrible, even for this field.

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

    Pros

    Average compensation, office personnel can balance their work-life and personal life; staff have a difficult time balancing work and personal life since there is such a high turn over rate. Personal growth is there if you chose to be a work horse. Great group of people to work with particularly the operations manager.

    Cons

    Leadership is ad hoc most times. Time-off policies deteriorated due to high turn over. The company stresses human values however local management does not seem to enforce values only if the client has mucho money.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time overseeing program directors

    Pros

    Salary is fairly high for a nonprofit, room for advancement

    Cons

    Supervisory staff here cannot be trusted. They do not hold the values of the company and treat employees as expendable workers. I had an issue with my supervisor and took it to upper management and they completely backed my superior even though she was clearly in the wrong.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees like people instead of problems.

    Pros

    If you like to work with mental health patients then you will feel really rewarded at this company.

    Cons

    Low. Salary for someone with a Bachelor's degree. I was interviewed and hired on the same day. The amount of paperwork is overwhelming. And you are supposed to clean up a former employees incomplete work..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to train your employees instead of once a week if you are lucky.
