I currently work for a company that is constantly growing and improving for a better future for the clients that they served
Senior Program Associate (Current Employee), Cherryhill, NjJune 17, 2015
Pros: Being able to make a difference in aleast one person life and forming lasting relationships
Cons: non breaks and the long hours on a weekend day
I really enjoyed the co-works I worked with on a daily basis, we worked well as a team for the best interest of the people we served. The hardest part of my job is not being able to divide myself in multiple person to be able to fulfill all my clients wishes in a day. I had learned many useful tips and information that has been very helpful in being able to complete my job responsibilities.

Program Associate (Current Employee), Haddonfield, NJJune 5, 2015
Pros: Making consumers happy.
Cons: People who don't have empathy when it comes to working with this special population.
A good place to work, because I love working to change the lives of individuals with disabilities. I find it rewarding. A typical day at work begins with getting my individuals up in the morning, and assisting them with their daily living skills. I make sure they eat breakfast, and medications, and they leave out to go to day program. the hardest part of my job is inconsistencies with co-workers not staying on the same page, and lack of communication.

Clinical Associate (Former Employee), Haddonfield NJMay 10, 2015
Pros: free lunches
Cons: no breaks
I would run behavior plans, run behavior sessions, and enter behavior data. I would look at graphs and see if behaviors increased or decreased. The hardest part was dealing with challenging behaviors as it was a crisis unit.

Residential Crisis Unit
Clinical Associate (Current Employee), Haddionfield, NJApril 14, 2015
Once clocked in, we help kids with daily living activities. We are to prompt them (verbal, model, physical) to get them to complete their goals in their behavior plans. Kids who are able to go to school are to transition with staff to the school and complete the goals teachers are to give them. Kids are prompted to clean after themselves, help with chores, and complete onsite jobs.

Our children have high intensity behaviors and aggressions. When a child is having their behaviors we are to block all self-injurious behaviors and aggressions toward other staff and kids. If needed, we are to restrain the child and debrief them. Once behaviors are completed, the child is redirected to their structured schedule.

Stay away at all costs
program associate (Former Employee), haddonfield, NJApril 10, 2015
Pros: Free lunches
Cons: no breaks, very little room for growth, no support from administration
I started working at Bancroft as a program associate in education. After 6 years there, I ended as a program associate in education with an M.S. I was given no opportunity for advancement and was constantly treated as if I was mentally incapable of job duties (even though I have more education than many of the "higher-ups"). They let go of employees unfairly (e.g. Sustaining a work-related injury but firing said employee for not being able to perform the job duty, which is also completely illegal). Facilities are dated and many of the employees act as if they are still in high school. If you enjoy unnecessary drama and feeling belittled, this may be the place for you.

Pros: Friendly staff, free lunch
Cons: Pay isn't great
It's a challenging job, but in a way it can be rewarding in seeing improvement among the student's. It's not a job for those who lack patience.

Pros: some great coworkers
Cons: everything else
Management plays favorites and screws over those that are not favored. Your hard work goes unnoticed. Good employees are typically pushed out and bad employees usually stay and get away with nonsense time after time. Do not waste your time working here. You're welcome.

Good co-workers
Senior Accounts Payable Assistant (Former Employee), Cherry Hill, NJMarch 10, 2015
Pros: some of my co-workers were like family to me
My day started with a cup of coffee and checking my emails to print vendor's invoices opening my mail and then matching invoices in the system to pay
I learned that no matter where you work your just a number

Management just like most places you work their was some good managers and some not good managers

I had some co-workers that were like family to me I had worked with them for almost ten years, and of course there are some co-workers that thought they were just better than anyone and didnt want to get along.

The hardest part of the job was trying to get in all the invoices on time for the end of the month close.

The most enjoyable part of the job was working with my co-workers that were family to me.

Typical day at work
Program Associate (Former Employee), Haddonfield, NJFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: salary amount
Cons: no breaks
A typical day could be fun or the total opposite. I've learned how to be a care provider and how to fill out paper work. My co-workers were awesome because we had one another back and provided assistants when it was needed. The hardest part was cleaning up after individuals but the enjoyable part was when the children were easy going.

Good starter but not long term
Supervisor (Current Employee), Cherry Hill, NJFebruary 4, 2015
Pros: flexible scheduling; usually family friendly; fast and direct hiring; gain experience
Cons: no breaks; poor upper management; very low pay; employees last priority
This company is a great place to get your foot in the door and to learn about various kinds of mental disabilities. This company has been around for over 100 years and has earned a reputable spot in the mental health industry. The staff that works for this company tend to be young and inexperienced working for around 10-11 dollars an hour for anywhere between 24 and 32 hours a week, 32 hours is considered full time employment with this company.
The pay does not get much better when promoted to a management position. I was promoted to a supervisor and only saw a 1.75 pay increase and was held responsible for up to 13 individuals with disabilities and only 2 or 3 (on a good day) staff for assistance. Higher management is awful and often do not acknowledge issues or problems faced by staff and first line supervisors. On more than one occasion my reporting director did not know or understand my job as a supervisor or did not know what was going on at levels lower than her position due to upper managements isolation from front line supervisors and staff while using horrible communication practices. On another occasion an upper level manager did not know how many people were receiving services and was shocked to hear we had 13 patients when the average program has 5 patients.
The most enjoyable part of the job are the patients that you get to interact with on a daily basis. They are full of life and are always pushing to become better than they were yesterday. Most individuals goals are oriented to get them to become productive and useful members of society with skill sets catered – more... to their abilities.
The hardest part of working for this company is watching the company let so many talented and spectacular staff walk out the door. The turnover rate is extremely high, close to 60% at one point. This is the main reason I give this company such low marks. The compensation and benefits coupled with poor job security (the company eliminates positions randomly ALL the time) and poor upper management does nothing but increase the turnover. – less
