Review for Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic, Inc. National Headquarters, Princeton, NJ, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

With the onset of the new CEO Andrew Fried man @ 3 years ago, this organization has gone rapidly downhill. The service has declined yet they still receive grant money from many state depts. of ed. (one article reporting on this charity's new fraudulent identity)
While attempting to serve students with reading disabilities they have severed the outreach staff, cut the employees & become a poor call center. While the CEO & Sr. staff maintain high salaries they have eliminated middle management leaving low level employees many taking salary cuts, benefit cuts & demotions.
Their new business model is how can we sell more? While nonprofits need to make money to stay in business this was s service oriented organization. (formerly Recording for the Blind & Dyslexic). They do very little to assist students with reading disabilities.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Remove the for profit sr. leadership & CEO. None of them have educational experience or nonprofit experience. The CEO's wife is an independent consultant making a 3 figure salary as well. I believe this organization will ultimately fold, soon.
