    I worked at May Institute full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great co-workers to work with; working on improving how the HR department is handled.

    Cons

    The company culture is unclear. Communication is unclear. You hear one thing from upper management, and something else from direct supervisor. Non competitive pay and benefits. A lot of unhappy employees within the corporate office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees issues and concerns regarding changes within the company. You want it to be a work place of choice, then you need to address employee concerns without them feeling that if they speak up, it will be held against them.

    I have been working at May Institute part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I’m a people person. I am always happiest and most satisfied when I’m interacting with people making sure I was able to meet their needs and giving them the best possible attention. It’s my favorite part of the job, and it shows I’m rating as Good of the time. Part of the reason I’m interested in this job is that I know I’d have even more interaction with Individuals, on an even more critical level.

    Cons

    The Downside of the distance, More Miles per Gallon.
    If nothing else, this might be a great jobs program, I love it. I would have a very strong incentive to work with the Organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    She Makes sure each and every employee understands how fragile the
    relationship really is. have a clear understanding of the organization
    mission and how you fit into the overall scheme of things.

    Former Employee - Senior Therapist in Randolph, MA

    I worked at May Institute

    Pros

    The May offers Flexible work options such as flexible hours, part-time/fulltime, varied job responsibilities, frequent variation in number of hours worked. There are many opportunities for career growth and education. The May has its own post-graduate education program including doctoral level training. There are frequent opportunities for inhouse professional development and opportunities to request training on specific topics. The supervision is on a hierarchy model and supervisors are available by cell phone at all times.

    Cons

    Most positions at the May require extensive travel with no defined territory. Although higher up positions are salaried, many of the starting positions are fee for service and do not included benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a better system of compensating new staff members.
