    I worked at Marrakech as a contractor

    Pros

    Short Days Meaningful Work Very Flexible Very friendly management

    Cons

    Clients are sometimes a no-show. Usually a phone call to HQ will remedy that.

    Advice to Management

    More training for job coaches, especially in making connections with the clients, would be very helpful.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Tuition reimbursement

    Staff was unprofessional, manager was distracted during training. I didn't learn anything working there.


  6. I learned a great deal there. Just not what you would hope to about a company that came from such good intentions.

    I worked at Marrakech full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Many special needs people benefit from what they do.

    Cons

    They were started with a good philosophy. But seems to have been lost. In that there is a set of rules handed to you. For you to follow. But another set of rules they make up as they go along to suit whatever personal desires they have at hand.. That has nothing to do with that good philosophy the company began with.

    Pros

    They serve a population of client who have historically suffered abuse from society. They attempt to create improvements in the quality of life of their developmentally disabled clients.

    Cons

    The company suffers from poor organizational structure and a lack of appreciation for the importance of communicating clearly and consistently and across all the involved constituents.

    Advice to Management

    Improve consistency of communications. Many failures are simply the result of well-meaning employees not being armed with the appropriate/timely information needed to perform their work safely and with good effect.
