Vocational Assistant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 6, 2017
worked there 3 years, love the clients and some staff. the company is very segregated. Very hard stressful days. Not much employee recognition. Favoritism was a big thing with this company. Not having sufficient staff to support in behavior crisis. When behavior crisis would arise not many staff would come and assist. The most enjoyable times was when they celebrated the different cultures of the staff. and holiday bonus. They point system was horrible which is why theyhave a low turn over rate
Behavior Technician (Current Employee) – Berwyn, PA – August 24, 2017
Working at Melmark has its ups and downs. Some days I love it there and some days can be rough. There is no paid sick time. They have a system called occasions and you only get 8. After that your fired🤔. I love me co workers and my old director (she has another job now). Melmark can really teach you how to appreciate life and the little things. The raises aren't much at all my raise was 12 cents. Over all I rate my job at a 6.
Lunch is 2 dollars now.
The occasion system sucks, they don't allow many African Americans to work in the main house.

I would not like to write a review. I will not write a review. Just know that there are not so many Pros to working for this company. I guess the best advise I can give is that its not a company to retire. its a revolving door.
Program Manager (Current Employee) – Berwyn, PA – August 19, 2017
Decent work environment, a lot of opportunity for growth and competitive salary. The hours can be challenging as they do not allow for good work/life balance and the work is rewarding but can be very draining.
ABA Counselor (Current Employee) – Berwyn, PA – August 5, 2017
I have worked at Melmark for at least six years or almost all my working years. I have had good and bad days. I have seen people come and go but what I love most about this place is that there is always room to grow. While I was in school, they always worked with me pace on my schedule. The managers are awesome and teamwork is great here. When I was an ABA councilor, we all worked together to fulfill the duties and Now that I am a nurse, they work with me during med pass. I never feel alone. The hardest part of this job is seeing children that you have built a relationship with graduate and leave to go to another facility. Overall, I love this place, and I thank God for leading me here.

The individuals are great and my coworkers were helpful and supportive. Problem with this company is culture and leadership. Environment is cut throat competitive and uncaring towards staff. Leadership cares more about protecting and promoting themselves than the individuals we were supposed to serve. Leadership talks bad about each other and throws staff under the bus at any problem.

Lead Behavior Tech (Current Employee) – Berwyn, PA – November 13, 2016
facility demonstrates team work within the employees. Also they do what they can to help the students becomes as independents as possible. staff is responsible for the level of supervision over the client and run client goals according to the behavioral support plan of the client. you will have your good and bad days but Multi-tasking and teamwork are the things I learned. Co-workers are supportive and very helpful in time of client challenging behavior. the hardest part of the job is de-escalating a client from crisis to normality. If you love working with individuals with intellectual disabilities MelMark is good start.
