A great mission but terrible management!!!
Financial Analyst (Former Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 22, 2016
The management over the finance department is very disconnected from the day-to-day realities of the finance personnel. The impression I have witnessed with regards to management of the finance department is that they care more about the image of themselves, and their self-serving agendas. The benefits and time off at Easterseals are great, but you don't benefit from it if you are asked to come in on your requested days off or is not allowed to take time off. If you are seeking a work life balance...forget it! Working 55+ hour a week and some weekends was the norm for me. When I mentioned my workload concerns to management, I was told to take it or leave it. I was then told that I am a salaried employee and working 50-55 hours or more a week was to be expected. Working for Easterseals starts off leaving you feeling inspired, but ends with you feeling used and unappreciated. If you like being overworked, underpaid, and constantly stressed out about unreasonable expectations and deadlines and very little support, then this is the company for you! Good luck!!!
Enjoyed working w/the fiscal & program staff. Good benefits & very generous w/time off (vacation, sick days, holidays, etc.).
Unrealistic workload expectations. No work-life balance. No causal days (jeans). High turnover.
