Loved the job, but low pay and agency is non supportive
Advocate (Former Employee) – Corning NY – March 22, 2018
I worked for AIM For more than two years. No pay increase, bonuses every year if they felt like it based on no criteria. I was taken advantage of. I was not given the basic tools to do my job. You were encouraged to go to supervisors about concerns but that never yielded in anything.
Felt like the agency rewarded only the few. Hired family or friends.
I loved what I did, just not fond of the agency in the end.
The agency advocated for the disabled population, however, had issues hiring those who were disabled (and making accommodations).
With a MA I was only making over 30k a year. No overtime. No 401 or 403b. Just a human service position, with no recognition for talents or the clients.
Too bad that they could spend money on new buildings and not on employees who really care! I loved my coworkers for the most part, but felt that once they became supervisors they became cold and distant.
