    Pros

    Not Working at RHD is the only Pro. If you have no work ethic or ambition this is the place for you.

    Cons

    You have to work with crackheads and obvious drug users. Don't waste your time, your better off working at Walmart. High turnover rate.

    Advice to Management

    Please act like you know what you're doing, even if you don't.

    Pros

    It's a job and you always need a start somewhere for experience. Some great people work here. This company has a Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Wasteful spending, inept leadership. Even the CEO left before it caves. They do not know how to manage anything people or money.

    Advice to Management

    It is might be too late for RHD, but you need to change up management in the Midwest.

    I have been working at Resources For Human Development full-time

    Pros

    Depends on the location and who is running it. Some directors are really good, others not so much. Flexible scheduling. Company gives you 4% of your salary to help pay for benefits. Opportunities to learn new skills and transfer within the organization.

    Cons

    High turnover in all position levels and within all programs. Again, it depends on the location and who is running it. Some locations have horror stories because they're not well run, and at others the people are really happy because the location is better run. The benefit plan is restrictive with high co-pays. The pay is low, even for nonprofit, and there are no raises. The company itself has communication and organizational problems. The company is very disorganized, and with Central Office being in Philadelphia, they are out of touch with what is going on at program level. Slow to make decisions as well. Computer hardware is slow and out of date.

    Advice to Management

    You need to pay better attention to what's going on at the program level. Don't let your "values" restrict you from making decisions that can improve a particular program, or improve all your programs. And please, if someone calls Central Office, answer the phone!

    I worked at Resources For Human Development as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Free food and casual dress code.

    Cons

    -Very low pay. Most people there have a second or even a third job just to make ends meet.

    -Unprofessional. Cliques all around. You're constantly being watched and talked about.

    -No loyalty/trust between managers and their employees. Upper management is constantly trying to sack people they can't control and who rightly raise concerns about the condition and lack of structure and boundaries.

    -Staff meetings are waste of time as no attempts at improvements are made. Everyone is afraid to say what they think because they're scared it's going to be used against them in the future.

    -No room for advance or growth. You are expected to do the same thing day in and day out. If you get promoted, you will barely see the difference in your pay. You simply get more responsibility and be expected to work more hours.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice. This is the worst company I have ever worked for.

    Working with the consumers and teaching them on how to cope with everyday challenges.

    Advice to Management

    RHD is an excellent place to gain the Mental Health experience to further your career in the Mental Health field. But there isn't room for advancement nor pay upgrade.

    Pros

    Fellow workers. Not directors. The creative program in KC is great because of the staff hired from the Art Institute and other creative people, but turnover happens after frustration with Directors.

    Cons

    This corporation is imploding at a fast rate of speed. Five years of "re-organization" has not worked. CEO has resigned. FEO in charge. No one really knows what's going on. Regional directors have a saying, "What corporate doesn't know, won't hurt them." Crazy, incompetent, mixed up organization. Spending tons on PR, hoping that works. The cat's out of the bag, people know how screwed up this corp is. Directors hire friends and golf buddies. No hope for advancment or raises unless you are connected to higher ups. Incompetant directors seem the norm. Law suits pending. Discrimmination happens all the time. They just keep it quiet. DSP's and some office staff are worked to death with no hope of a raise....for years! Re-organization is constant. False Claims trouble. If I could pick negative stars I would. Find a real non profit to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Just shut it down.

    Pros

    They're closing down that's the best thing that could've ever happened to this piece of crap start up company and the piece of crap director that runs it

    Cons

    This company has bedbugs and cockroaches and 90% of their houses and or mold they don't train any of their house managers the director gives everyone a promotion who sleeps with her I'm so happy they're finally closing this crappy company down because they neglect every single one of their clients it's a good thing the state of Nebraska finally recognize

    Advice to Management

    Don't reopen your company

    Pros

    They put on a nice front that they care about the individuals in our care, but that's all it is is a front .

    Cons

    They put on a nice front that they care about the individuals in our care, but each individual is just a caseload in a file to them… Easily ignored and passed on to a caregiver who is negligent! Medications are not accounted for, documentation is not done, they overwork the staff that really do want to help, they constantly pass the buck when there's an issue or a problem that arises and twist things to where you are blamed . If you are hired as a fiscal manager, you'll be accused of stealing money or not properly handling the money and be fired even though you didn't do anything wrong… They're constantly setting up people in the office to take a fall for the higher ups. And not to mention, you will have to fight tooth and nail to get your mileage reimbursements and your paychecks! This place is a joke and as a mandated reporter it is my obligation to report them for their gross Negligence! If you choose to work here, I highly suggest you document everything! Record your conversations with RHD staff, Save emails and text messages, and take pictures of any issues you are reporting so there is proof… Cover your rear end! And watch out, because even the they have a policy against retaliation, if you go over anybody's head's they will retaliate.

    Advice to Management

    Something so greedy and selfish and actually Live up to the RHD values! Reconsider the shift times for residential… Be more compassionate towards our individuals as well as residential staff… Residential staff are often overlooked and miss treated. Also I think it would be best for everyone involved if you hire CNA's to work with special needs adults so that they're taking care of instead of hiring people who can barely get up and down stairs and leave individuals unattended to who aren't supposed to be left unattended due to their medical conditions .

    Pros

    If you want to work in a hostile working environment getting overworked and under paid provided no support or training from management. Have to fight every two weeks to get paid properly, and frequently assaulted and injured at work this is the place for you.

    Cons

    You will have to fight to get paid on time, the company preaches core values but implements and practices none of them. They do not respect employee's, or individuals served. Many group homes in the Lincoln, Nebraska program were gross environments moldy food, general housekeeping not done full of mold and mildew. Staff are not trained and often thrown into dangerous situations, working with aggressive individuals. High turnover rate, and the people that do tend to stay are lazy and don't care. The director at my time of employment was to busy trying to sleep with staff, after she left the next director was dishonest, and disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Find a different job, you're not good at what you do and you are contributing to the problem or actually work to fix things don't just settle for the crap that the corporate office gives you.
