Suggestions for improvement

  • Some positions in the organization have better benefits than others. For example, some full-time salary employees have built in vacation days for certain times of the year and can't use them other times of the year. These same employees do not get paid FMLA, but other full-time salary employees in different divisions do have the paid time off. I might be understanding this incorrectly, but that is how it was explained to me.

What I like about the company

If you enjoy helping people who really need it, then this is a great place to work. The members and the staff are wonderful and interesting people. I am, admittedly, a people person but it's okay because I think everyone here is. It's contagious.

What I dislike about the company

As it is with working for a non-profit, there are certain things that you just have to accept. The pay is not always as great as it would be for the same position at a different company. However, I am happy here. I'm fine with making slightly less in exchange for working in a positive environment, doing something I can feel good about, and serving people who really need it.

Company Culture

A Non-Profit Organization. I Will Never Consider On Working For That Type of Organization Again!

Support from management

Very Little.

Teamwork

Interaction was a minimum. Since I was a homosexual professional, they treated me as if I had the plague. There was static between the Payroll clerk and myself. I made every attempt to discuss the problem. However, she was reluctant.

Freedom to work independently

This was the only positive aspect of the position. That is until the Controller had a baby, and they hired a temporary that was constantly watching my every move.

Internal Communication

The only time I was addressed is when there was a problem, or an error was made on my part.

Gender Equality

I was not in a position to review such statistics.

Attitude towards older colleagues

The company Does Not consider senior citizens for employment.

Career Development

No room for growth.

Overall compensation for your work

In 1996, I started at 25,500.00, and left three years later making only 26,000.00.

Office / Work Environment

Most of the time, the work environment was satisfactory. But there were times when the central air condition system failed. We were located on the second floor of the building with no fans for circulation.

Environmental Friendliness

Plastic People.

Work-Life Balance

I worked my forty hours a week. When needed, I did not have any issues working on the weekend.

Company Image

I am far from proud. I Do Not believe a company should discriminate based on an employee's sexual preference.

Job Security

Sure, there is job security, if you want to work for peanuts.

Handicapped Accessibility

Company does not hire or have accommodations for disabled individuals.

Workplace Safety

Yes, they provide a Safe Work Environment in reference to anyone hurting themselves.

Challenging Work

Considering the large percentage of contracts that needed to be mailed the tenth of every month, you bet I am proud of my work.

Inclusive / Diverse

Anyone different from themselves were alienated.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I believe that Riverside Community Mental Health and Retardation Center in Dedham, MA needs to re-evaluate their values.

What I like about the company

Honestly? Absolutely Nothing.

What I dislike about the company

People with a Closed Mind.
