    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the intake process of interviewing at risk children and helping to place them into mentoring homes.

    Cons

    I disliked the low salary and the.commute from Lancaster Co to Harriburg. There also was.some cynicism among staff.

    Pros

    Intentions to help the disabled are there, but the money gets in the way.

    Cons

    It's all about the Benjamins baby! Since Civitas Solutions went public (National MENTOR Holdings) the priority is dollars, not people. Elitist senior leadership is nothing but a bunch of hypocrites. They get their big salaries and bonuses, and the employees get nothing, but the satisfaction of helping those less fortunate. Unfortunately, that doesn't pay the bills.

    Advice to Management

    Not much can be said. Enjoy your elitist lifestyle at the expense of The People while you can.

    Flexible scheduling and getting into the company is easy! Simply stop by the office and you will be interviewed by the top bosses

    Cons

    People who work in the field are often unhappy and can make working in the homes horrible. Heavy lifting without proper training

    Advice to Management

    Focus on hiring college students that are willing to work hard for the company

    Way under staffed.. upper management is rude and doesn't care about client needs just paperwork.. can't get Pto approved.. lack of training.. no matter how hard you work it's never enough..
