    I worked at Melmark full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The clients were the only aspect of the job that made it worth going into work!

    Cons

    Poor management structure partly due to existing nepotism! At first the structure and work place seemed great, but as this quickly faded. Atmosphere quickly changed to feel as though working in a Big Brother setting. Change over of staff exceeds any place previously worked in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent with following up with all incidents that reflect lack of client care-not just those that suit management criteria.

    I worked at Melmark

    Pros

    Melmark has an excellent reputation within the educational community. The work they do there is indispensable. You can get hired with little experience as long as you have a strong educational background or a strong desire to work with developmentally disabled people. Salary begins relatively high. Most employees and management are younger making it a possibility to move up quicker than other companies. Melmark is a great step up forward for your career.

    Cons

    Staff injury is a daily occurrence, if you can get over that there are still more cons to consider. If you work in Residential you have to work a double (7am-11pm) once a week, and it's usually Saturday or a Sunday. The staff tend to have cliques. If you aren't in the "in crowd" your day can be even more difficult. Counselors are expected to be very detailed and almost error-free, but the management is messy and disorganized themselves. Everybody is overworked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please don't stop by for a visit, instead work a full shift or two to know what it's really like. Eliminate the doubles so we can do our job properly.
