    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You can make your own schedule for the most part, so is flexible in that respect. The pay was on par with other companies doing the same work. Working with most clients is very rewarding and a great learning experience.

    Cons

    Unprofessionalism runs unchecked, there was literally no training or support, only immaturity and contempt from co-workers and even the team lead unless you fit into their little clique. It became unbearable having to deal with the staff, while most of the clients were great. The medical benefits are horrible. My last note...If you do work here, and get bed bugs (good chance unless you are very careful), you're on your own. RHD won't cover the cost to exterminate them.

    Advice to Management

    Team Leaders need to be competent in all areas, management needs to keep structure and positive support for all staff, and end the unprofessionalism. Advocate for better benefits and mileage reimbursement for staff.

    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    working standards aren't that high, so it's not that demanding, imo. it's super easy to get hired because if you are qualified and seem intelligent, they jump at the chance to hire you.

    Cons

    There are so many cons. I had a negative experience the first time working as a Director over a program, so pretty high level of management. It has almost kept me from feeling positive about working anywhere since then. My 2nd experience was working as a contractor in one of their A&D outpatient programs and the experience was worse. I can't recommend working here, but i'm not sure they are any worse than any of the other mental health or non-profits in the area.

    Pros

    Very flexible and pleasant people to work with.

    They have flexible hours.

    Cons

    Management does not know what they are doing.

    Have to pay through the nose for health benefits. Now paying around 20% of pay for health benefits.

    No room for advancement. They will not promote from within.

    They promote that they are a premiere place to work but they are far from it.

    Advice to Management

    Take better care of the individuals that you have.

    I worked at Resources For Human Development full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Salaries in the administrative office are fair. Fantastic PTO and flexible, casual atmosphere. Learning is encouraged.

    Cons

    Salaries in the programs are abysmal; some program directors with master's degrees are making less than admin assistants at the central office.

    Upper management is clueless. They've never worked anywhere else, and don't know squat about the departments they oversee; that renders them unable to hire qualified people to hear those departments. Lots of backbiting and backstabbing among senior management.

    Expectations change daily, if not hourly. You're told one thing one minute, only to find out after you complete the task that the manager wanted something else.

    Management spends unprecedented amounts of time patting themselves on the back. They also tout the organizational values, but follow those values only when it suits them.

    Advice to Management

    Read the values over and over again until it sinks in and you finally get it. Listen to your employees, especially at the program level.

    Pros

    Team atmosphere, training, events, encouraging of growth of clients.

    Cons

    One of the clients hit me with a wooden board to the head when I was off the clock - on site. Received a concussion and was seriously injured. Manager informed me I would not receive help from RHD and if I pursued anything I would be terminated. I paid for all medical costs out of pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Care about employee's health.
