Great mission but poor management
Staff (Current Employee) –  Mount Kisco, NYMarch 15, 2018
The mission and the individuals served should always be the first priority, but with many of the managers allowed to get away with bullying, intimidation, lying to cover incompetence, the quality of the work for the individuals suffers. Leaders there don't seem to realize that the work culture is defined by them and what they allow and encourage.

Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Former Employee) –  Yonkers, NYFebruary 26, 2018
Job kills and doesnt repay only complain. If youre from the islands, you'll fit right in. Otherwise screwed. No togetherness . never saw a place where your own supervisors stab you in the back

Alot of work but spiritually rewarding
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Yonkers, NYNovember 25, 2017
It is what you make it. Hard work but rewarding. Hardest part is the physical work the easiest and the time spent with staff and individuals. low pay. the union did not advocate for me

middle of the road
Behavioral Specialist (Former Employee) –  Mount Kisco, NY 10549November 7, 2017
As places such as these go, it's fine--not terrible, not great. In general, in organizations that serve the disabled, resources are thin and needs are high, and that typically means most people are just trying to get though without raising too many eyebrows. I haven't worked there for several years and leadership may have changed so I cannot comment on that.
Pros
benefits
Cons
culture that protects the organizatio first

Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  nurse aideAugust 28, 2017
it was very stressful and to many people to take care off not to much help
they should have 2 people for each patient and the job would be better for any one that work there .
and it would be safety to the patient

Good learning experience and what not to do
Resident Manager (Former Employee) –  Mount Kisco, NYJuly 18, 2017
Richmond is a wonderful environment for the individuals that we serve but it is not a healthy environment for their employees. They do not support their employees, compensation is not adequate compared to the work expected. The employees that work there are exceptional but it administration leaves a lot to be desired.

Tough place to work
Disposable human (Former Employee) –  WestchrsterAugust 7, 2016
If you are looking for an employee that will suck you dry and not make you feel appreciated then you have come to the right place. They burn you out and then they hold it against you when you just can't keep up anymore. Big Management has no idea what they doing but they keep doing it. The big boss looks down on everyone else like their garbage
Cons
High burn out rate, nasty high management, too much justice center

Richmond
Management (Former Employee) –  Mount Kisco, NYOctober 26, 2015
Richmond was once a great agency to work for. Currently the morale is extremely low. Improvements are greatly needed in upper management. The agency doesn't appreciate hard dedicated workers. The CEO is not open to new ideas if they are not her own.
Pros
Great pay, benefits, and flexibility
Cons
No support, rude admininstrative staff, company doesnt promote growth

good hours, day busy so goes quickly, staff are great to work with.
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee) –  Mount Kisco, NYAugust 23, 2015
Good start for those who are new to the field. Hours are 8:30-4:30 Monday-Friday. Pay is not good for the work that must be expected. Paid time off and sick time is accrued biweekly. No paid holidays must use PTO. The other houses in the company pay more and not as strict.
Pros
Good hours, Great staff, good experience for a person new to this field.
Cons
1 /2 hour lunch no paid holidays, point system for lateness, staff treated like children

My time was productive and I enjoyed it. The residents taught me a lot about themselves and myself. To be able to help residents who cannot help themselves is very rewarding.
