    I have been working at Matheny Medical and Educational Center

    Pros

    Matheny provides quality care for the developmentally disabled. Services include personal hygienic care, nursing,therapy,recreation, job placement assistance, transportation,etc. The environment is one of giving, with the client's needs the top priority. Very easy to fall in love with the client's, with the job not feeling like work.
     Job opportunities can be found in all the areas mentioned above.

    Cons

    Salary increases have been stagnant for several years except for upper management. In the midst of budgetary and structural transition. Elimination of several long standing positions has been the result.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of the positions and people eliminated had value well beyond their salaries.
    Continued cuts of valued, veteran staff could result in decreased staff morale.

    Pros

    Staff are committed; it's rewarding to work at a place where you know people with the most complex disabilities are getting quality health and educational services

    Cons

    The organization, to a large extent, is at the mercy of state funders. Sometimes a sense of instability flows through the organization.

    Former Employee - Paraprofessional (Teaching) in Peapack, NJ

    I worked at Matheny Medical and Educational Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Wonderful programs for adults and children with cerebral palsy and other physical and cognitive disabilities.
    PTs, OTs, and other support staff are very caring
    Music therapy and arts programs are excellent
    Many highly dedicated teachers for students PK -21

    Cons

    Working in the school as a paraprofessional was a terrible experience. Senior managment was very condescending and unprofessional, even trying to sabotage the teaching job I took at another school when I was dismissed from Matheny, with no warning or reason given. I know of other teaching and secretarial staff who were dismissed with no reason given or opportunity to recitify the situation. Other departments might be fine, but I would not recommend working for the school.
