Pros

It's a secure job with fair pay, at least in the overhead. People listen to you when you have an idea and encourage you to seek out guidance when you need it. My supervisor has also been very flexible and supportive when life gets in the way. You don't get many government holidays off, but they compensate for that with a lot of vacation time that accrues relatively quickly.

Cons

It's a big company, so change will never be spontaneous or quick. This can be a good thing and a bad thing I think. Also, while they don't force anyone to be a workaholic, it is definitely encouraged. There is a lot of work to do and you have to make sure not to let yourself get buried because Mentor is more than happy to pile on more.

Advice to Management

Try encouraging your employees to have lives outside of Mentor. If someone is working 80 hours a week, get them some help, don't encourage it.

    Pros

    The Clients are the only reason to work at REM

    Cons

    Reporting to Human Resources is frowned upon and issues do not get resolved. The employee is told they are targeting the person they are reporting. Illegal questions are asked and personal time (evenings/weekends) is told how to be spent. The supervisors have no distinction between personal life and work life and expect the same of their employees. Expected to be on call 24/7 even when there is an on call system in place.

    Advice to Management

    Take staff concerns seriously, when you have more than one person complaining about the same issues remember that the person they are complaining about could be lying through their teeth to save their own job.
