Non Functional Environment
Lead Clinical Specialist (Former Employee), Raleigh, NCApril 12, 2014
Pros: co-workers
Cons: no holiday time off, threatening and hostile management
When I first began to work here, I was a little thrown off by being made to pray during office meetings and the various religious posters on the walls. Then I though how great it would be to work in an environment who care about people. The workers there are all great but the majority of those in upper management are anything but...

Top Heavy Organization
Manager (Current Employee), Southbury ctMarch 16, 2014
Pros: helping families
Cons: upper management
Administrative upper management is extremely well paid for a nonprofit, while the worker bees are underpaid. Management makes decisions without consulting those in the field who understand the issues, leading to poor decision-making and false starts. High employee turnover rate.

Excellent place to begin your human services career.
Site Team Leader (Former Employee), Des Moines, IAFebruary 27, 2014
Pros: fun and productive atmosphere, caring management team, excellent coworkers who believe in teamwork approach
Cons: pay isn't really the greatest, especially when you factor in the cost of health insurance, can be a little taxing on your balance of work and personal life
Never a dull moment when working as a direct support professional at LSI. Everyday is new and exciting. The management team is awesome and truly believes in building a TEAM with everyone. Advancement can be somewhat limited, however, due to very low turn over rate among supervisors and coordinators.

LPC-IT and Medical Transcriptionist (Former Employee), Appleton WisconsinFebruary 22, 2014
Lutheran Social Services has an exceptional management team. The work they do within the community to provide a variety of mental health care is outstanding. A typical day for me was meeting with clients, preparing treatment plans and goals, maintaining files consistently, following HIPPA confidentiality and privacy laws, scheduling clients, facilitating – more... domestic violence groups, attending supervision meetings and more. The most enjoyable part of this job was the people I worked with and the challenge of the case load I had to maintain. – less

Decent working environment but not too much room for advancement.
Youth Specialist (Current Employee), Indianapolis, IndianaFebruary 13, 2014
This job does not have as much structure as it should be we make it work as best we can. Management can be more supportive. They are not around as much to see what goes on within the units.

A Non Profit in need of better management
Communications Manager (Former Employee), New York, NYJanuary 31, 2014
I enjoyed my tenure at the company, everyone is very nice and easy to talk to. However, there could have been stricter management of fund and resources, and the massive lay-off that occurred could have been avoided.
