Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW); Team Lead (Former Employee) – Valdosta, GA – May 20, 2018
Supporting individuals with developmental delays and their families through Benchmark was rewarding. The oncall responsibilities allowed the professional staff to respond when clients needed help the most.

When working at Benchmark you will find that there is a routine that you have to follow everyday with the clients. Also their is never a dull day because when working with different clients you will always find out something new.

While I worked at Benchmark the management I was under did not give proper credit or attention to the work staff. The staff would often let the managers know there were problems at the houses but nothing would get done. There was a large disconnect between staff and managers. Sometimes clients would need to go to appointments but managers had not let staff know and the appointments were missed, or there was not a second staff member scheduled to stay at the house.

if your working the Gainsville house the supervisior and manager are the coolest people. and the company makes sure your up to date on your training. overall I would recommend this company to anyone but the salary for what you have to deal with is not worth it but I do tink they will fix the salary issues in the near future.

I worked directly with a man who was prone to seizures and I am certified in the state of Ohio to give medication. I spent most of my time working 3rd shift making sure he was okay at night at a house that was 24/7 wake hours.

There is a profit over Services culture at this company. The client safety is not the number one priority nor is their personal well-being. There is no atmosphere for the clients so personally grow or educate themselves. Very little opportunities for the clients to get out and find active jobs for themselves as the company wants to control the amount of money that they make personally versus their social security or welfare benefits.
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Helena, MT – January 15, 2018
Absolutely no structure in this company, clients do not have enough things to do, staff is poorly monitored by management. Clients are constantly being neglected due to staffing issues, the communication within the company is poor as well. would never advise to work for this company.
Personal Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Eastgate, OH – December 13, 2017
Loved my clients and felt fulfilled by the services I provided them. Was very unimpressed with the company's ability to keep me in work hours, ability to keep good/reliable workers, and to ensure the well being and safety of clients overall.
Worked nights so was able to complete homework assignments

There is a lot of discrepancies in job guidelines. Not much of an opportunity for advancement, as some employees have been doing the same job for over 30 years. You also rarely get a chance at higher pay, or flexibility in your hours as needs change. There is also a low chance of you getting desired work days off unless you notify them a long while before the days you need, as they are so understaffed.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Helena, MT – November 30, 2017
this place was awful. the management was the worst I have ever had, completely a disaster there. no respect or organization, the clients were treated awful by management and there was no plan of action.
