HR ADMINISTRATIVE ASSISTANT (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – March 13, 2018
Work here is fast-paced but teams know how to collaborate and support each other. Management is very caring and always stays on top of their game. Loved how the focus was always clear and kept the main goals of company in sync with all aspects. Awesome place overall.
Administration Program Aide (Current Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – March 7, 2018
The goal of the company is to find housing for the homeless, and have people become self-sufficient. Over 100 homeless people have been housed within the past year. All the staff work extremely well as a team and support each other daily; however there is high turnover due to the stressful environment. The best part of the job is seeing formerly homeless people find places to live.
Good salary, medical, dental, life insurance, vacation time
would rather not say (Current Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – May 1, 2017
The people are great to work with, majority of the time. Most do it for the right reasons, I mean who else would work at a Non-Profit getting paid way less in the Bay Area otherwise. Management has had a lot of changes in the past year, some good and some they're still figuring it out. There's a lot of ways to move up with in the organization if you know someone to be honest. Only thing I don't like, seems like favoritism at times. Hardest part of the job is seeing the positions some of these people or families are in when they come to our shelters and the most enjoyable is helping them and seeing the final outcomes of what you've helped them accomplished. Overall, it's a great place to work at, make connections and build your resume.
Children's Programs Coordinator (Former Employee) – Palo Alto, CA – April 12, 2017
Working at Life Moves was a great experience especially because of the clients. The administration and "higher ups" on the other hand were extremely difficult to work with. You never know what to expect or what they expect. I'd say apply to the place but remember you were warned.
Accounting Manager (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – February 22, 2017
My day entails the overview and responsibility of the accounting department. It is challenging and I enjoy that. The senior leadership team is a great group to work with as we all question, engage and coordinate with each other to make Life Moves a more productive organization.
The workplace culture enhances the work/life balance. We have a mission to help the homeless and that carries over into our work attitudes and activities.
The hardest part of the job is not being able to help as many people as we want. We are constantly working with our grants teams to apply for and request additional funding for our mission.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the people. Life Moves has a great staff and the work environment is very supportive and engaging.
Program data analyst (Former Employee) – Menlo Park, CA – February 4, 2017
I worked (part time) for lifemoves as program data analyst. People were really nice and cooperative. I worked for contracts and compliance department- there was immense lack of transparency. It will be an excellent place to work if it becomes more inclusive and encourages more face to face communication than too much remote work. Little bit of accountability from departments will be helpful too. Remote work is good for people's lives but not when it affects the organization.
Good place to start
Not good for career progression, Lack of transparency between departments and serious communication gap.
Case Manager (Intern) (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – February 1, 2015
If you're interested in assisting the homeless population, this is the perfect agency to do so. InnVision Shelter Network is one of the largest shelter agencies in the bay area and there is so much opportunity to do good things.
The amount of opportunity available to find employment with this agency.
