    Pros

    Layed back and low-stress environment. Not a lot of pressure to put in overtime. RHD culture promotes empowerment, so managers don't spend a lot of time managing you. Although benefits are costly, it is made up for with time off, 22 days a year PTO and 11 holidays. As a nonprofit, RHD does indeed help people who need it, so if that's important to you, RHD might be for you.

    Cons

    Incompetently managed in almost every respect. Lots of dead weight on staff and no annual raises for 2-3 years. Senior management has never worked anywhere else, is resistant to any new ideas, and is just there to continue feathering their nests until they retire. A technology dinosaur.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on efficiency and cutting the waste and the place will be flush with cash.

    Pros

    Good supervision at many of their locations, important population to work with, strong behavioral theory, mini classes for any one.

    Cons

    Lots of traveling, individual site are fairly unorganized, not much recognition for quality work, many opportunities for bad work to get unnoticed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More specific an individualized supervision, recognize your employees' strengths and weaknesses by actually talking with them. Help train skills please.

    Beware! Narcissists in Upper Management.

    Pros

    Vacation benefits if you can actually take the time off.

    Cons

    Upper management are narcissists. There isn't any free thinking within this organization. Most employees I spoke with are very unhappy working here. You feel like your being micro managed constantly. Management has issues with trusting employees in the positions they placed them in. Absolutely no respect from management. You are not seen as an individual here. Most employees feel the threat of becoming laid off, pushed to leave, or fear termination.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a non profit organization, as such respect the employees that make it all happen. Let employees placed in the position be free thinkers. Find a new CFO, as I see this as the biggest threat to the mission of RHD.

    Pros

    A lot of vacation, excellent immediate supervisor and immediate team (hub in RHD terms), truly making a difference in the lives of those less fortunate

    Cons

    The values that are not applicable to Senior Management, especially the ED, ridiculous wastes of time, firings based on the whims of the Supervisors not actual performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    use logic as opposed to what the ED wants, reward competence and hardwork, not those who are driven to avoid both, the "RHD values" speak of abuse of power and applied to people at lower levels, not you. The slogan of "Question Authority" should be ignored or qualified with "Question Authority except that of Senior Managment "

    Pros

    Great communication throughout the organization. This is an open environment where there is great adherence to the values. In other organizations there is a stark disconnect between the work environment and the values of the corporation.
    Management and employees believe in the values, and this translates into true quality services being rendered by the staff. Likewise, employee morale is always high.

    Cons

    Benefits are not very comprhensive. There is no retirement match, and there is no tuition reimbursement etc. A young person who still needs to grow professionally, may find it difficult to map out a course of professional growth. There is not a clear path to upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide a forum for open communication. Find creative ways to improve on benefits.
