If it wasn't for the economy I wouldn't be here.

    Pros

    First I would like to say that my job with Melwood was a week if that , however i did feel a little of a outcast
    only because the understanding was not the way you work but how fast you work,
    I understand the money that was given out was good, and they have the best health care going.
    Management is a little high standard ,but it take's a good manager and team to support are men woman and the
    ARM Force .

    Cons

    I would say that the United States should get with the Management Staff and find away to make the work much
     more less stressful for the person working the job ,
    Melwood can be fair and are fair to the understanding of a person like their own . let's be
    a little more understanding because at the end of the day ,it's all about getting the job done ,well done
    time is always going to be around you can't beat it .

    Advice to Management

    I would just like to say that I just did not understand , because i said to myself , self if you don't have the time to do
    the job right the first time where do you think you will find the time to do it right and over.

    I worked at Melwood Horticultural Training Center full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great mission--serving people of differing abilities in this capacity is a great undertaking and the employees should feel proud about the work they do.

    Cons

    poor communication from upper management - policies constantly changing, and the company seems fairly new, though they've been around for 50 years
