    Pros

    I love that no matter what department you work in everyone knows someone. I like to describe Melwood as "very family oriented." Melwood really do value people with differing abilities. This company is overall a great experience to grow, meet new people, and treat others with respect.

    Cons

    I don't have anything bad to say. Only thing me personally the pay is not high, but decent for a nonprofit organization.
