    INCREDIBLE team of dedicated, committed employees serving inspiring individuals across the country.

    Talent Manager (Current Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsI truly hope to retire from TMN, I love my job and the people I work with. The best part of working here is the mission - to serve, serve well, and serve more - our consumers are inspiring and tie us back every day to why we work here. We have such amazingly loyal and dedicated employees - makes me so proud to say I work here. I've only been here for a year & a half, but I am constantly impressed by how many of our employees have been here 24, 16, 28 years... and on and on, often I am the least-tenured person in a meeting, that doesn't happen in a lot of places.

    ConsSome of our jobs are the "toughest job you'll ever love!" I embrace how rewarding our environment can be, but it can be challenging with the scale of what we do and the limited resources we have.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A Great Job Where You Can Really Make a Difference

    Data Entrist to Marketing Coordinator (Former Employee) Boston, MA

    ProsGreat Work Environment,
    You can feel good about doing work that makes a difference,
    Awesome team members,
    Career Advancement Opportunities,

    ConsNone that I am aware of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI am honored that I was able to work with not one, but two teams during my career at The Network. While getting my master’s degree I held an entry level job. Upon graduation, I was given the opportunity to put my degree to use and join the Public Strategy Team. I can honestly say that in both departments, I had the pleasure of working with people who genuinely cared about helping others and worked hard to make a difference. And that can be said about everyone I came across, in many different roles and positions, throughout my almost three years at The MENTOR Network. It was a privilege to work there and I appreciate every opportunity that I was given while there. I highly recommend The Network to anyone!

    OK overall, but not the best "long term" career plan

    Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) Eureka, CA

    Pros- Managers are concerned about their "consumers" and do their best to make it work.
    - Training provided is great!
    - Good about arranging coverage if you need to take a day off
    - health care plan you can pay into

    Cons- Gradually reduced my hours from full-time to half time once my availability changed and I informed my supervisor I was accepted to a graduate program
    - Low wage with GRADUAL increases

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry to keep current employer happy and loyal.
