    Toxic Corporate Management Has Lost Sight of Original Mission

    Pros

    The employees who serve clients are truly dedicated to Human Services. Why else would they work under increasing benefits costs, no corporate recognition, and no pay increases for 4+ years?

    Cons

    Truly an example of allowing corporate finance to rule an organization. It's all about the Benjamins! Corporate management is absolutely disconnected from those employees who make it happen. The CHRO has wasted hundreds of thousands, if not millions of dollars on frivolous software/ employee self service systems and non-value added corporate HR staff which has achieved nothing but employee disengagement. So much so, that The MENTOR Network is now being assailed by the SEIU. It could have been easily avoided with a few good strategic choices that didn't include building an HR kingdom (or queendom), and utilizing resources and dollars to recognize, reward, and appreciate the field employees that selflessly serve disabled and vulnerable human beings on a daily basis. Meanwhile, the senior executive team received a 10% pay increase and bonuses while the field staff hasn't had a raise in four years and absolutely no communication about why. Something way wrong with that picture. Human services? Not sure about the human part, but if you're looking for a debt ridden, top heavy organization that is only concerned with making their interest payments to their capital investment masters, you have come to the right place. Good luck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Return to your roots, and value your employees. Forget about getting fancy and focus on the fundementals.

    Pros

    good clients to work with. fun to work with the people in the home. a lot of freedom for activities

    Cons

    TERRIBLE PAY! management treats staff like dogs. people have been working here for 6 yrs and still get the same pay as a new person coming into the company. no raises. 10.64 an hour is where you will always be at. management hires idiots to work in the home and then they quit or get fired within a month or 2

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your staff better and they will stick around. wouldnt have so much turn around.
