    Pros

    Mission of the organization to help individuals with mental disabilities
    Good work/life balance
    Good benefits

    Cons

    No career paths
    Limited opportunity for growth or advancement or training
    Senior management is racist and self serving
    HORRIBLE pay
    It's 2014 and they are still driven by paper and lacks advancements in technology
    Lots of office gossip and backstabbing
    Management does not value the opinion of the staff

    I worked at Melwood Horticultural Training Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    There are know such pros, when you take a disable person and time that person to see if he is working
    up to CONTRACT standard knowing you can reduce his or her pay is not how american treat disable worker.

    Cons

    They take the disable and tell them too work as fast as you can ,and if you don't beat the time
    we are going to cut your pay.
    well melwood when a disable person get's a bill and the mail they don't cut the bill
    because they did not beat the time. what you people are doing is playing with the income of
    a person that can't understand right from not right .

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would sat to the Management what you are doing is not and anyway ( Training ) your playing with
    the lives as well as the (Disable worker pride ) but then you and the people that pay you would understand .
