Home Health Aide (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – May 3, 2017
They are a nice company to work for. In order to work for this company you must enjoy helping other people. Typically my client liked to bathe and have breakfast. I learned how to care for someone who is having a seizure while waiting for rescue to arrive. The management is nice and certifies you before you start work. The hardest part of the job is worrying about the health of your patient. The most enjoyable part of the job is helping your patient stay health and happy.
Respite care attendant (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – April 17, 2017
Average work place with a OK pay rate constant scheduling available. Minimum clients so if something changes with your current client it would be difficult for the agency to find someone to replace the previous client . I haven't had any real issues with them paid big weekly.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Cortland, NY – March 21, 2017
I worked for Liberty Resources for four years before transitioning to private practice and I am happy with my experience! The company as a whole took excellent care of me and I felt very valued as an employee. The bulk of my experience was with the Placement Diversion Program in Cortland, NY. This position provided me with excellent opportunities to coordinate treatment among various systems to provide the most opportunity of success for my clients. I absolutely felt I was doing important work that challenged me to grow as a clinician. The caseload requirements is very manageable and allows for therapists to truly direct the best course of treatment for the at-risk youth and their families they work with. Liberty was wonderful about allowing for flexibility when it comes to flex time. My supervisor and director were especially supportive when it came to ensuring I was satisfied with my work, as well as supporting work/life balance. If ever I look into working for an agency again, I will undoubtedly reapply to Liberty Resources due to the great work environment I experienced for four years.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Cortland – February 3, 2017
The job is difficult but I still loved the work and I did not dislike liberty as an agency but the program I was in was horrible. It is contracted through dss and a few of the caseworkers are downright abusive and unethical and management does not support the employee. A lot of backstabbing when you complain. One caseworker did not like me telling a parent to take privileges from their child for bad behavior and bad mouthed me to parent, other service providers and management and little to nothing was done. This same caseworker then agreed with my boss that I was only to speak to her and not report the youths behavior to probation. When I went to upper management my boss denied it. Did not feel supported, bullying environment.
Benefits, rewarding work
Management is very political and does not back employees.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Nelson, NY; ravine(canastota ny) – January 16, 2017
I loved working with the clients but the staffing was horrible. On call never came in when she said. Working late was always happening due to people not showing up for their shifts. Other rude employees who didn't do the task list for the day left them for overnights. Stuff that was suppose to be kept between the supervisor and the employee got leaked to clients and other employees putting the employee at risk. When hr was contacted they did nothing about it.
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Current Employee) – New York – September 17, 2016
I Love doing my part- by helping individuals help themselves. Liberty Resources is a Great Company to work for.
Unfortunately there are some managers placed where they should not be. Sad when the company lose their best people, that are a great fit for the job. They could of made the company proud, except they were never given the chance.
Residence Counselor (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – April 27, 2016
You are always on the go at this job. Everyone worked as a team and if you aren't working with the team the team ran into problems, lucky this was a rare occurence. I learned a lot from this company, one such things is effective conflict resolution.

Therapist (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – March 3, 2016
I've been employed at Liberty for just over a year now. It is a great place to work with engaged leadership and progressive management. The culture at Liberty is unlike any other agency I've worked with.
Preventive Caseworker (Current Employee) – Fulton, NY – May 19, 2015
Working in supportive yet not micromanaged environment gave me the tools to be self sufficient. Management is helpful when necessary and ready to address any and all concerns. The most enjoyable part of this job is seeing the positive changes in the consumers that we serve.
Assistant IRA Supervisor (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – March 7, 2015
Not a great company to work for. There were a lot of responsibilities, and the compensation for it was not even close to what it should be. The management was overbearing and did not allow for any freedom with the job positions. It was a really far drive and did not provide any type of vehicle or compensation for the driving. Overall not a great company and would not recommend them.
Residence Counselor (Former Employee) – Canastota, NY – January 22, 2015
I learned about Liberty Resources is that the management does not do a good job of listening to employees needs. They judge people on what they hear and not the facts. The most enjoyable part of the day is working with the clients. The hardest part of the day is sometimes the work schedule.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Syracuse, NY – December 10, 2014
This company is poorly managed. They do not support their employees. Write ups come easy. Very unorganized. They are in it for the money. The morale is awful. Senior Managment is very needy and controlling.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Syracuse, NY – June 23, 2014
I loved working here! It was great to have interaction with the individuals at the group home I worked at (Northtown IRA) and being able to have my coworkers like a second family! I learned a lot at this job medically, and about developmental disabilities. It helped me be a better person; it's a very humbling experience.
