    Pros

    It was invigorating to be working with some of the best minds in the country to solve some of the biggest problems facing the mental health field today.

    Cons

    The only con was the possibility of your project getting de-funded. Other than that, my experience with RFMH was wonderful

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. The projects you are working on and the studies you are conducting will truly make a difference in people's lives. Thank you for letting me be a part of it.

    I have been working at Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent insurance, time off is fairly generous, ability to get yearly performance enhancements, great hours, overall a good company to work for as an entry level option

    Cons

    Not much ability to move up, you basically have to wait until someone else quits in order to get a different job within the same company

    Advice to Management

    Make it easier for people to be promoted from within and also for them to get raises without so many constraints

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Research Foundation for Mental Hygiene full-time

    Pros

    Decent benefits, as others have said it really depends on your department since the Foundation employees people and many different local, state, and research branches. My advice would be to research the division / location of employment to get a better idea, but RFMH independently does provide decent benefits.

    Cons

    There is little accountability for management practices, especially because when the department is tied to government positions. There can be issues between foundation and government employees. There is no union, promotions and raises are arbitrary and given with little or no regard to seniority.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of your employees, provide better training for managers.

    Good environment. People are nice to me. There is no heavy work load. Benefits are very good.

    It has many branches, so what you experience depends on where you work. Salary is not much, and there is no promotions.
