Educator (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – August 29, 2018
There is a clear divide between upper management and front line staff. Leadership does not foster a positive work environment or work to develop the skill sets of those under them. Leadership and pay are both lacking.
Project Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – August 11, 2018
Flexible work schedule, opportunity to interact with persons from varied backgrounds.Job satisfaction derived from the service offered to clients, Opportunity to develop time management skills abounds.
Not a great place to work but the work you do for clients can be very rewarding.
Counselor (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – June 11, 2018
If you love that type of work, the job is rewarding because these is so much you get to help your clients do. If you can separate your time in the office from you time in the field, you're straight. If you can't, this wouldn't be a good place for you to work. You do get to go to many different training opportunities, which is great. You stand to learn a lot. I happened to love my job but not the agency.
Many field hours, get to help many people, might have a good coordinator
Treated very poorly by upper management, lots of paperwork, too many clients on your caseload, forced to buy fund raising ads and either work or buy a ticket to their yearly event
Coordinator (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – March 1, 2018
In December, 40% of the staff was laid off due to lack of funding. Since then, two other major funders have pulled their funding as well. Almost all staff that are still there are looking to leave. If you are looking for a temporary job to gain a little experience, then this job may be for you. However, it is unsure if the agency will be open much longer due to continued lack of funding and lack of staff to meet deliverables.
Prevention Specialist (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – January 16, 2018
This agency just laid off half of its employees due to the CEO misusing funds. They lost state funding and it wont be long until more funding is cut. Anyone who is left is seeking employment elsewhere. Dont work here unless you want a VERY temporary job.
Human Resources Assistant (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – January 10, 2018
Employees and managers are wonderful people to work with. Environment is generally positive. A good balance of work throughout the day. Benefits are pretty good, but could use improvement. Benefits: Health and Dental. No Vision. Pension after 5 years, Life Insurance. Founder misuses grant funds which affects grant funding.
I worked at LIAAC in the mid 80's at the height of the AIDS epidemic with some of the pioneers in AIDS care.
Case Manager (Former Employee) – Huntington, NY – December 12, 2017
I worked with the most dedicated, progressive group of people I could ever hope to encounter. The work was challenging and incredibly rewarding. Very sad in many ways, but I learned so much about the human spirit and I am always proud of my time at LIAAC. The most difficult part of the job was the discrimination, fear and ignorance our clients were confronted with on a daily basis. I am glad I could fall on the right side of history when looking back at the struggles to combat this dreadful disease and that now happily people are living a full live despite their diagnosis.
Line Staff (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – May 18, 2017
If you are looking for a job that looks out for you, this in not the company for you. Ridiculous rules. Terrible trickle down effect- management is miserable, so is everyone else. If you get a good coordinator, you are golden. If not....
