Lacks structure, poor leadership, and high turnover
Case Manager (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAJanuary 31, 2019
-Very reactive, no systems are in place which cause hardships with business processes. Simple tasks can become complicated and misguided.
-Unqualified employees are promoted to management roles to cut costs. In turn, the org experiences poor leadership and lackluster vision.
-Dinosaurs. (e.g they still use old fax machines, most employees on average type at the speed of 10 WPM)
-C-level execs make decisions beyond their scope/knowledge. No checks and balances on authority.
-Lacks the ability to retain employees. Employees quit on a bi-weekly basis.
-Org seems to struggle staying afloat, constant budget constraints.
-No innovation. No processes, No systems.
Pros
Great healthcare benefits
Cons
401k match is a joke

Wonderful mission
Data Coordinator (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMay 22, 2018
There is always a second supervisor involved that you don't know about... If you are hourly there will be no flexibility with your hours even if you are able to do work from home. The staff here are amazing. All working for the same goals.
Cons
No flexibility

Great dynamic place to work but salaries are low.
Case Manager (Current Employee) –  San Francisco, CAMarch 31, 2013
I enjoy working at LSYS a great deal. The atmosphere is supportive of deepening one's skills and there is great commitment and passion for the mission of the agency at all levels.
Co-workers are wonderful; dedicated, passionate and supportive. The hardest part of the job is the low salary and the most enjoyable part of the job is that I work for 18-24 year-old's and this age group is quite inspiring and dynamic.
