    I worked at Penn-Mar full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The consumers are the only reason I worked there, they are wonderful and it's great to be helping. Always extra hours. I was working around 120 hours every two weeks.

    Cons

    A lot if people quit or transfer, I worked in the group homes so it was stressful having different people constantly in and out of the house and hard on the consumers.

    Great Company, great training, great people to work with. Stand by core values and room for advancement. Always overtime available

    I worked at Penn-Mar full-time

    Pros

    None that I can think of AT ALL

    Cons

    Company cares more for the $$ that the 'consumers' bring in than the 'consumers' or YOUR safety and level of care. Corporate culture of demeaning help that wants to do the right thing, encouraging laziness in staff. Be prepared! If a 'consumer' attacks you, you may not defend yourself or push them off - yell 'help'?!?

    Extremely high turn over in staff - speaks volumes.

    Advice to Management

    Close down and start again. Be prepared for more State Inspections.

    I have been working at Penn-Mar full-time

    Pros

    The individuals that live in the group homes of Penn Mar are wonderful. Every day is different and challenging but a very rewarding job if you have the patience and dedication to the individuals.

    Cons

    This is not an easy job by any means. The management doesn't know how to say thank you weather you come in early/stay late to help out or you get snowed in for multiple days.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having favorites. A manager should not be best friends with a staff that they are "supervising." There are obviously problems with favoritism across the board. Some people getting fired for things that other don't get written up for.
