Safety Ambassador (Current Employee) – Mount Laurel, NJ – November 12, 2018
Bancroft as a company is really good, but the Lindens Program is where they take extremely aggressive Person's served and strip them of all medication so see what the function of their behaviors are. There are no staff and the staff there are not trained properly. So, you literally get beat up (seriously beat up) for 40 hours a week with horrible pay.
unlimited overtime so you can make a good amount of money
you will get hit, bit, kicked, punched, people will urinate on you, people will throw their feces at you.

Bancroft a good job for ones coming out of high school who are not sure what they want to do career wise. The residents I take care are the best thing about the job. U build a relationship that is different with each n everyone u know. The pay sometimes isn't worth the satisfaction u get when u see them succeed, but being able to get paid fairly and reasonably would help out in today's struggling society to live comfortable. Especially in supporting a family.
The relaionahip u build wirh them. Trust u get back from them

Bancroft taught me so much over the past yrs that I refuse to leave. However the lack of staff at certain houses could make your job harder than what it is because you may have to do your job and take the place of someone elses
Experience and decent pay or OT
You can only work equivalent to 24hrs of OT in one week
I love to see our individuals succeed and accomplish set goals. Overall Bancroft has been a very stressful place to work. Its very hard to maintain level of support when other programs require assistance.

The company is trash for lack of a better word. The benefits are horrible. Promotion is slim to non in Human resources if you are not a white male. They under pay staff and over work. The retention rate is low. Do not recommend working here.
Program Associate (Former Employee) – Haddonfield, NJ – October 2, 2018
Professional company supports advancement and growth within the company. They also hosts plenty of events so you can get to know your fellow co workers that you might not see on the regular basis. A fun work place.
Easy going job, doesn’t feel like work
32 hours is considered full time, pay is a little low
Senior Program Assistant (Current Employee) – Mount Laurel, NJ – September 4, 2018
When they hire you they sugar coat everything. Nothing is what they tell you it is. Clients are not medicated well, and you can get hurt. Management is curupted and only care about the turn over rate. Staffing is always short, they run the place on the minimum amount of staff. I use to love my job in the begin, everyone supported you, team work was like family, and kids were happier. Now it’s their word against yours and cameras always tell a different story. If your body language looks rough then this place isn’t for you. Expect to get your hair pulled, head butted, scratched up, and some PTSD. There are no breaks.
Meals with clients, relationship with clients, benefits, discounts, relationship with co-workers, teamwork
No understanding of personal life, no breaks, not paid enough, felling targeted, no support when truly needed, short staffed, not honest

Working for Bancroft you are given the opportunity to work within the populous of individuals with developmental disabilities. These individuals needed constant supervision in order to accomplish every day tasks. Being able to provide care for these individuals allowed employees to direct influence the community in a positive manner in order to feel accomplished on a consistent basis.
Program Associate/Advocate (Current Employee) – Cherry Hill, NJ – August 21, 2018
Compassion is a MUST have to work in this field. Taking care of developmentally disabled individuals in very rewarding. However, when you have to constantly struggle each month to pay rent, utilities, and food. It over-shadows the rewarding aspect of the work

You can use it to your advantage and move up if you play your cards right. Don't get sucked in the gossip life, it won't get you far, and always speak your mind no matter what, always have a paper trail. Clock in do your job and clock out
