DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – January 30, 2019
Ilc is a good place to work. I love the house I'm at. My supervisor is great. Most of the staff is like family. Scheduling is pretty fair. The pay could be better as my house is an asleep overnight but otherwise the pay is ok. Overtime is good.
Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Grand Island, NE – August 30, 2018
I love what I do now, so much. However, there is little room to move up in the company, unless you're in with the right people. I have been asking for almost 2 months now about a schedule change, and things are only getting worse, not better.

You help adults with developmental disabilities learn new skills. It can be a tough but rewarding job all at once. The management is great at supporting their employees and are always looking for new ideas to help the individuals. You learn to be a team player and a tremendous amount of patience and creativity.
laid back environment
can get physical sometimes - may leave the day with some bruises and scratches
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Scottsbluff, NE – July 14, 2018
Its a great job, but it requires lots of patience and perseverance. Some individuals may be violent, they may be non verbal some may require help with personal hygiene. There's also lots of documentation and program tracking.

I really do enjoy working at Integrated Life Choices. I feel like the company really does care about the individuals and go above and beyond for the people they support. The only bad thing I have to say is they underpay their employees and they don't have a lot of advancements.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – March 4, 2018
Integrated Life Choices is a great option if you are looking for flexible hours or more traditional hours. They are always willing to work with staff to ensure both your needs are met and the client's needs are met.
Management team, flexible hours
Losing hours due to weather/holidays/school cancelations.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Lincoln, NE – February 6, 2018
This is not an easy field to work in and has never compensated people who do this line of work fairly. You can tell the employees/DSP’s who truly put the individuals first and work to support them. Most of the others are very negative about their job and bring everyone down around them(obvious it’s their problem and not a company problem.) ILC’s Support of the individual is the main focus as it should be! ILC has great 401k and competitive benefits. There are a ton of good things happening here!

I felt I was wrongfully informed on the level of disabled adults I would be working with I was not properly informed on necessary background information on some clients regarding their violent/sexually violent history
Vocational Manager (Current Employee) – Omaha, NE – December 9, 2017
As with any company providing services in the Human Services field, the pay is not stellar. However, the managment team is supportive and the culture of the company is warm and almost family like. ILC regularly rewards great staff, offers at least one big company party each year, and prefers to promote from within. This is the best company in this field I have worked for!
Hardest workers are poorly paid and undervalued, often to the point of physical harm
DSP (Direct Support Professional) (Former Employee) – Lincoln, NE – December 5, 2017
Upper level management/executives earn highly competitive salaries while their employees are physically, mentally, and emotionally harmed by individuals the company sees as dollar signs rather than real human beings who need invested care and service. I was attacked and severely injured while on the job and told I was responsible for finishing my shift if I couldn’t find anyone to come in for me. Do NOT work here if you value your life and mental health - because the people who make thousands of dollars from your hard work do not care about your well-being.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Grand Island, NE – October 13, 2017
ILC does not pay their employees what they deserve to be paid. Managers do not promote and reward employees with solid work ethics. Managers protect less ethical employees. I would not recommend ILC unless you have no work ethic.
Working with the Developmentally Disabled Individuals.
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) – Grand Island, NE – October 3, 2017
Working there was misery. The individuals were the only reason I stayed as long as I did, to try and make their lives a little better. The management for ILC sweeps Important issues under the rug and does not know how to control their budget. They allow people who do drugs to work as DSP's and when their Individuals are being abused ignore the situations.
Direct Support Professional (Current Employee) – Hastings, NE – October 3, 2017
It is a good place to work just lack of communication and lack of care for employees. Great manager at the Hastings location. Upper management seems unappreciative of hard works and only point out the bad.
