Senior Program Associate (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJ – July 22, 2014
A typical day was spent hanging out with the persons served and making sure they were getting the most out of life as they possibly could. Paper work and, doctors appointments and all the office work was done in the down time.

Program Manager (Former Employee), Wilmington, DE – April 27, 2014
Cons: read above
Unfortunately, Bancroft is great at showing a positive work front and expresses the need to work together and promotes job security. Such is far from true. Working with adults with ID/DD is rather difficult but is accomplished through a strong team. This has to trickle down from upper management, to program management, and down to the DSP staff. Unfortunately, – more... the upper management is all about numbers and projections. They do not care about the security of ones safety and the numbers that contribute to making a costly mistake. One mishap can cost you your job when your at your wits end because proper staffing was not provided. Cover ups are common and sometimes down right sad with how they're done. Executive members will do anything possible to ensure their skin is kept clean while the lower management kill themselves to have a safe and properly ran program. Be leery but be mindful that your just another number and statistic on their payroll spread sheet. You will work harder than any place you've worked for less abilities for improvement and advancement. – less
Program Associate (Current Employee), New Jersey – February 22, 2014
the co- workers are fun and care, hours are available for all shifts, I've learned how to give medicine and help the person served complete their everyday life goals. The hardest part of the job is the travel distance from my home to work. The most enjoyable part is helping the person served.
Program Associate (Former Employee), Haddonfield, NJ – February 20, 2014
Avoid this place. This is by far the worse job I have ever had. If you have an offer to work somewhere else go. Do not plan on working there forever it is the worse place to work. Trust me. Run for the hills and dont look back
Program Associate/ Interim Sr. Program Associate (Former Employee), Mullica Hill, NJ – December 11, 2013
Pros: watching person served excel
Cons: lacked appreciation
I loved working with Person Served and improving their quality of life. Assuring their needs were always met as well as their dignity was always maintained. My immediate supervisors were amazing, however upper management left something to be desired. They rarely had any interaction with the person served. Promotions were very hard to come by and good – more... deeds were overlooked. – less

Program Associate (Current Employee), Cherry Hill, NJ – October 20, 2013
Cons: they do not pay enough!
great place to work, love the environment! It is a very rewarding job, but unless you move up, it's hard to support your family on the salary alone! You have to have more than one job to make ends meet.
Their management could benefit from reading this review.
Teacher (Former Employee), Haddonfield – September 24, 2013
A typical work day for me was 12 hours. I as getting paid for 6 to 7. Their was lunch free, because there was not a lunch break. While management was nice to me, they were overworked as well and often did not have the time to return emails or calls. My coworkers on my level( teacher) were unprofessional and childish. I had individuals tell me meetings – more... were canceled , when they were not. Give me incorrect directions to meetings, as well as attempt to enlist me to complain to supervisors in an attempt to make me look bad. On the other hand my assistants were wonderful and supportive. They worked hard for me and I felt that they as staff were not appreciated enough for what they did. The hardest part of the job was the paperwork. They have a form for everything. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with the clients. They also paid very well at the teaching level. – less
