    Advice to Management

    I 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!

    Pros

    Very supportive environment. Genuine concern for the individuals who reside there.

    Cons

    Program coordinators and program directors will make or break the house. If you have good ones you'll love your job if you have bad ones you'll be miserable. If you're not happy in your current house I'd recommend transferring before giving up on the company.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay and benefits!

    I have been working at The MENTOR Network full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Some 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.

    I worked at The MENTOR Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Mentor has changed a lot in the past few years. There is a larger team dynamic full of people who want to do things right and not take shortcuts.

    Cons

    The chopping block could always be right around the corner. No annual raises. Caseloads are pretty high.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the praise and every little thing you can do for your team goes a long way. Try to plan one staff community outing per year to show your appreciation.

    I worked at The MENTOR Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The State Director drives her team to maintain excellent customer service, work life balance, positive feedback and a competitive wage. Other upper level management would make that a better place to work if they embraced the same goals.

    Cons

    Ownership of the breakdown of progress needs to be unified throughout the Upper level management. Support should be consistent, not when the mood strikes them. Wages need to get better for the level of work load.
