I worked at The Menta Group full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great experience working with LD/BD students.

Cons

Staff is over worked and under appreciated. Morale among staff is low due to lack of any kind of staff recognition for working hard. Management does not train new staff.

Advice to Management

Appreciate the staff you have that work hard for the well being of the students. Train staff in the beginning rather than be demoralizing after the fact.

    I worked at The Menta Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You can make a difference to underpriviledged children and help teach them new coping skills.

    Cons

    Micro managed badly. Teachers are overworked and held to double standards than to other employees. There aren't break periods. Staff expected to work straight through the day with no break and have to eat lunch with class. Preferred staff get more leeway on issues. Administration is often not qualified or competant.

    Advice to Management

    Don't micromanage your staff and expect the company to run better. You can start by following Illinois labor codes and hiring qualified staff. Give better benefits and pay, and better communicaton of expectations. Treat staff better. Care about what they teach. You seem more concerned with your staff behaviors than those of your students.

    I have been working at The Menta Group full-time

    Pros

    Great experience working with the kids, benefits and pay are above average making moving up in the company a great opportunity. Menta is willing to invest the time and money to further yourself as an individual and to help the company grow.

    Cons

    No real cons, work life balance is a little tough with the drive, but that will happen anywhere that you go.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing! Management makes sure to put the kids first and always looking out for employees.
