Assistant Residential Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Queens, NYFebruary 24, 2019
love the agency however they employ some of the most uninformative supervisors. you would ask a question and they never know anything always having to refer to someone else. They're some supervisor that are absolutely horrible to their staff (threatening their jobs with justice center calls) and assistants(threatening their jobs with write ups and termination) to the point they leave within 30 days. At what point do the directors step in and do something???????.

great company low pay
Caregiver/Personal Assistant (Current Employee) –  Alamogordo, NMJanuary 16, 2019
I love the company and you have the option to bring your own client to the company but the pay does not add up to the cost of living which is a down side...the managers are very prompt in handling issues that may arise
Pros
known clients
Cons
low pay

Experience with Independent Living Association
Evening/Overnight Residence Counselor (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYOctober 14, 2018
Working with ILA is a great experience as the ties change things get harder at a low pay rate, but excellent heath Care coverage. All I wants to say overall its a good agency to work for just that it needs to pay the workers more than the minimum wage that is coming up in January 2019. Otherwise its a good healthy job and and the Individuals (clients) are wonderful to assist them in their needs.

supervisor
Assistant Resident Supervisor (Former Employee) –  Staten Island, NYSeptember 17, 2018
The mission of ILA is to provide independent living. As a supervisor you wear many hats and have to contend with poor staffing, tyrant area supervisors, and long working hours.

HR Corporate Recruiter (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYSeptember 10, 2018
The culture requires assistance, especially management. There's a divide within the departments that results in a lack of efficiency. They can use some team building exercises.

Advancement
Residence Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYMay 16, 2018
If you work hard there is plenty opportunity for advancement. The work place culture in the residence is what you make it as the supervisor. Listening to the staff is key. You have follow the agency policies but also compromise with staff as long as it doesn't take away from the respect factor and doesn't compromise the agency rules.
Pros

No good management. The supervisor of the residence I work in is very disrespectful to staff and causes conflict between staff, this causes a very uncomfortable working environment.

Over all it was OK
Program Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Brooklyn, NYJanuary 31, 2018
Over all it was OK. For the most part it was an OK job but to the end they were not very pleasant to the managers. They went to multi site supervision.
After the founder died it started to go south. The administration started to mis-manage the company.
Pros
You had a van and a gas card.
Cons
They started piling on the work.

Nice organization to work and get experience
Assist residents (Current Employee) –  Staten Island, NYSeptember 28, 2017
My Typical day at independent living is that you prepare a hot meal for the individuals. The start of your shift you read a communication log to see what went on the shift before yours. Then you check to see you assign to in the assignment book then you have to give out medication . Do their goals in their book. Maybe go out for community inclusion. Assist with their daily needs. You are also responsible for their goal books at the end of the night. Independent is a true learning experience for me.
Pros
paid trainings
Cons
not enough staff
