I have been working at The MENTOR Network full-timeRecommendsPositive OutlookRecommendsPositive Outlook
It is possible to have a flexible schedule and work from home some of the time. Three weeks of paid vacation available per year. Supervision for LCSW offered. 401K offered. For the most part, the staff is friendly and works together as a team. This is job is a good stepping stone for someone right out of school who needs experience.
There is a lot of driving involved, clinical supervision is sub par, the paperwork requirements are constantly changing, and foster parents are sometimes difficult to work with. Management is also not very responsive to working with employees in order to solve problems, including high turnover and burnout issues. Be advised that MENTOR does not give raises as a matter of policy, unless you change positions or get your LCSW. If you stay long enough, there will be new hires who out earn you even if you are a good employee. If you are trying to get your LCSW here, you only get about 8 clinical hours a week, which means that it will take almost 4 years to get your LCSW in MD.
Advice to Management
Provide quality clinical supervision, be more supportive of employees career goals, provide opportunities for advancement, provide a cost of living increase to pay, and provide quality training.
