    A small company with a big heart

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Boston, MA

    ProsThe Mentor Network was an excellent place to work. The management really cared about their employees and it was a good balance of work and personal life. Career advancement was encourged and professional growth was always there. There was a real family like atmosphere. The company really focused on the human side of work life, providing fun activities and events to keep up the moral and spirits.

    ConsThe location of the company was tough given that public transportation was a few blocks away. Which made it difficult in bad weather. Due to it's small size it was difficult for benefits such as training and conferences.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore timly reviews and performance evalutations would be benefical.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Mentor network does not have their employees best interest in mind

    Therapeutic Foster Parent (Former Employee)
    Columbia, SC

    ProsThe staff can be very pleasant

    ConsIf you have a foster child in your placement and the act out or do any thing wrong the Mentor network will blame the foster parent to keep the company from looking bad.

    Advice to Senior Managementshow more support to the foster parents, the foster children aren't their biological children, therefore they can be very unpredictable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Work here if you enjoy being underpaid, under-appreciated, and overworked.

    Program Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Des Moines, IA

    ProsWill promote talent and experience...but only to supervisory positions. If you want to get into management, good luck.

    ConsTerrible pay. No performance raises. Pitiful and inconsistent cost of living raises. All responsibility thrust on ground-level supervisors with VERY little accountability for direct care workers or managers. Very disorganized company. Poor training regimen and questionable business practices. Soul-draining social work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInstitute a supervision system using positive and negative feedback and an open atmosphere that allows employees to feel that they can fail, admit their failure, and learn from it. (If you aren't going to pay a decent wage, you could at least leave employees stronger for having worked for your company.) Increase wages, especially for low-level supervisors. I enjoyed working for your company more when I was working in direct care with practically zero possibility of getting negative feedback or disciplinary action, even considering the PATHETIC wage. Also, if the only raises you are going to give are cost of living, please adjust this to give supervisors at least as much of a jump as direct care workers: it is incredibly demoralizing to work your ass off and then realize that your irresponsible, 20-something direct care workers are getting the same quarter per hour jump that you are. Also, your benefits are a joke, especially your health insurance.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Very Unsatisfied

    Therapist (Former Employee)
    Paducah, KY

    ProsFlexible scheduling, limited oversight by management.

    ConsPoor communication, biased job reviews, constant turnover in staff, limited opportunity for professional growth, low expectations, inconsistent application of rules for staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConduct thorough, thoughtful exit interviews, spend time observing services rendered, research high staff turnover by contacting those who have left, insure that managment is qualfied for their postion.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
