Mentor Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Mentor, a Siemens Business is a US-based electronic design automation multinational corporation for electrical engineering and electronics. The company was founded in 1981 and sold to Siemens in 2017.
A former employee mentioned, "I would not recommend Mentor to anyone since their merger with Siemens they have totally changed for the worst! Great to place to work. For the most part everyone was super friendly and a joy to work with."
Team Leader (Current Employee) says"I would rather be at home broke than work for this company again. The participants they take in can not be handled and are very dangerous. They aren’t treated properly with medication. There are severely autistic and schizophrenia patients that will really injure you and the company as a whole blames you for getting beat up. It’s a dangerous place to work Cons: You get beat up and it’s always your fault"
Program Director (Former Employee) says"My time at Mentor Network was awful. I was with them for 4 years. I never felt more dismissed and devalued as a human being. They talk the talk, but do not walk the walk. During my 4 years with the company, I had 5 different supervisors. This level of turnover speaks volumes about the company. Their mission statement is, "Serve, serve well, serve more." Management seems to interpret that to mean serve more and more people without making sure that they are serving anyone well. It is a for profit company and that mindset overwhelms any attention to quality of services provided. It's a shame, because there is real potential, but they will never live up to that potential as long as the sole focus is on the profit they can make off of folks with disabilities. Cons: Everything else"
Home Manager (Former Employee) says"Mentor does not truly care about the level of service they provide to their clients. They do not pay well so the quality of employees is subpar. If you have ethics do not work for this company for you will find yourself involved in unethical situations regularly."
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"Its a horrible place to work, managers are bad and so what they want, when they want, they will die you if you try to report problems, I strongly discourage this company"
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) says"The Pay is horrible for those of us who have been here for years. Upper management talks to you crazy just bc of their roles, I'm constantly calling equàl opportunity and bbb due to the unfairness on how they treat their essential workers. Only started bc of covid but it's not even worth the headaches you are Guaranteed to get. Yes it's not a hard job for anyone to do, but just know they lie about raises on their site, we don't get them and have only got raises put into place for DSP via government, nothing via the company only a cup or a shirt here and there. Worst company I ever worked for and I wish someone would of wrote their honest opinions on here before I got into anything with this company. You want a real opinion... Work here if your desperate for cash, not to save build nor retire. Cons: No raises"
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) says"Very unprofessional from management on up to staff. It’s very unorganized. Everyone is in charge even though there is a program director. The work environment is great it’s just the unprofessional staff"
life skills therapist (Current Employee) says"Communication is poor. There is little to no room to Grow. The pay is unfair. You don’t really get a raise for being with the company for a long time. It’s a lot of gossip and favoritism."
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) says"The Mentor Network Management team is a joke. You will never be able to exceeded to higher levels, because of the management team. Different situations will only leave you to quit or fired. They’re not for you, always against you in any situation. The manager and district manager are for themselves. Even if your in the right, they make you seem as if your wrong. Cons: There are no cons"
DSP (Former Employee) says"One year is all I could take. At first the management was great. Then it all went down hill. Great job for someone who is unsocial and has no family or friends. Great job if your already wealthy and don’t need the money. Great job if you love stress and want to feel sick with anxiety everyday. Great job is you want to live where you work. Cons: A lot"
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) says"Once your hired for those hours you're not allowed to change them. So if you get hired for overnights and you need to switch your hours to daytime hours, your outta luck. Cons: Poor leadership"
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) says"Over worked and under paid. As with most jobs. I've been turned down for employment advancement to have the positions given to family/friends of higher management or people with little to no experience. Extra hours usually go to those same people. No annual raises. The only raise I've ever received in the last 4 years is when they raised minimum wage, while everyone else got a more significant raise. They don't fire anyone that doesn't do their job properly. Cons: Low wage, nepotism"
Mentor Network (Former Employee) says"One of the worst jobs I’ve ever had. Management is awful. Plenty of people slack off and never see any discipline for it. Was stuck in homes overnight because third shift didn’t show up. Happened multiple occasions. House manager didn’t even try to find someone so I could leave. Constantly being told contradicting things on what to do and what not to do. Pay is awful. Benefits are awful. This job isn’t worth the stress. Keep looking. Cons: Everything"
LST (Former Employee) says"The office in Blacksburg has bad management. They don’t train you very well and you can pick if you work daylight, evening, or night. Patients are nice but the workers aren’t"
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) says"This company doesn’t even care about their individuals, let alone their employees. They’re greedy, money hungry and only cared about filling the beds in the home for financial purposes, regardless of if those individuals are fit for the home, or will thrive in the environment. The house was constantly out of proper supplies needed to care for the individuals, making it hard to meet all of their needs. The pay isn’t worth the physical and mental toll. Overworked and underappreciated, to say the very least. Cons: Poor management who only cares about money, not the people."
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee) says"Too many politics with directors, managers, and constant changes in the last 2 years. The area director is focused on maintaining power and micromanaging instead of helping the people that have been in Harbor for many years. There are always job postings listed in Grand Rapids because people quit everyday. The program manager had to sit down with me to learn how to do my job months after becoming my supervisor. Then the program manager tried to tell me I wasn’t doing my job correctly which is laughable. They have no internal system to enter in case notes for rehab sessions so everyone is forced to update word documents daily. This is a nightmare for clinicians and for medical coding/billing. The company has a bad reputation because everything is so messy and disorganized. Cons: Micromanagement, incompetent managers"
DSP (Direct Support Professional) says"I've worked for REM/Mentor network for five years and have never gotten a raise. There is no incentive or upward mobility with this company. They do not care about their employees or their clients, it's sad. Cons: No pay increases, bad hours"
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) says"Terrible chaotic/ hostile work environment! Micromanaging area directors who act like immature adults &retaliate against staff if you’re honest! The policies procedures rules and regulations only apply when you’ve done something wrong! They’ll never admit fault for anything will set you up to be Blamed! You’ll def be lied to, mislead, mistreated and underpaid Cons: No break, no wheel chair pay, negative environment"
Direct Support Professional (DSP) says"Too many bosses not enough workers! Really bad communication they do not follow safety precautions very well. Managers are not very good role models also very unprofessional Cons: Bad management"
Pscc (Former Employee) says"No guidance"
Director of Nursing (Former Employee) says"I should have done my homework before taking the job and looked at the reviews. This is the worst company that offers little to no training, no support, and my first week they almost killed a resident. I was treated very disrespectfully by staff. You have nurses who don't show up and you have to cover the shift. You have NO training, NO orientation, NO support, NO help. You have no home life balance. ALL I can say is DON'T it was a BIG mistake. Cons: The whole environment was toxic"
Mats Söderhäll says"Even though i have requested many times that this company should stop sending me spam they still continue.
I belive this is a indication that this company does not not really care about the customer.
I suggest you think twice before making any business with a company like this."
