I have been working at The Menta Group full-time (More than a year)

Pros

-Working with LD/BD kids
-Hands on approach
-Admin laid back

Cons

-Admin too laid back, usually delegates tasks to people who are underqualified in order to just brush off tasks which leads to "too many cheifs and not enough indians environment"
-pay is half of what other teachers and paraprofessionals get in other schools.
-No staff appreciation or recognition no matter what the tasks completed
-expectations and workload is high but pay and morale is low

Advice to Management

Recognize and advance employees who actually do the work.

    Pros

    You are able to serve kids who need mentors and advocates. There are many opportunities to work with at risk youth.

    Cons

    Management is arbitrary and capricious. There is little recognition and the working conditions are poor. The non profits are run by a for profit which is a bad situation. Raises are arbitrary, salary is about half that of other teachers or adminstrators and poor leaders are often left in charge because competant ones leave. Coorporate staff are out of the loop when it comes to day to day issue on the job and job performance of specific employees (good and bad)

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of your employes strengths and value them.

    New staff, and not enough training.

    Add more thorough training for MSIS and Synergy, as well as explanation of benefits and PTO.
