This place offers a lot of freedom within the work environment. They try to meet the individual's needs as best as they can. They get them more involved in the community.

Poor management, poor communication, low pay
Direct Support Professional (Former Employee) –  Nicholasville, KYJune 30, 2018
Staff are overworked and underpaid. Management is poor and does not communicate well with staff, although email communication did improve a lot in the last year I worked there. Expectations for staff are often too high (For example, 1 staff member being responsible for 3 high need individuals at a time for 8 hour shifts when at least 2 staff members are needed.). CEO does not treat employees well and often does not listen to or address concerns from staff. The Human Resources Director has implemented many positive changes in assisting, listening to, and recognizing employees.
Pros
exceptional human resources director, free training opportunities
Cons
no benefits, low pay, poor communication

Very loving and ready to serve! Organization likes to hire from within for administration positions and take good care of their staff. You get out what you put in while working at LLM!

Rewarding job with supportive leadership
DSP/Department Director/Executive Director (Former Employee) –  Nicholasville, KYNovember 12, 2017
LLM is a great place to work from top to bottom. While each position there does require a high level of patience and understanding due to the field, if you care about serving others in a positive environment, then you will get so much out of the job. Management tries to be flexible with support staff, scheduling around school, second jobs, and personal circumstances. They also try to take time to invest in their staff, both professionally and personally. There are a variety of positions to work in within the company and leadership tries to help you find the right fit. Each participant you work with has different needs, so there is always continued growth and learning that occurs. This can be an extremely fulfilling job, where each day can leave you with an even bigger heart.
Pros
family-like environment, rewarding job
Cons
requires patience, can be high stress

CLS-Community Living Supports (Former Employee) –  Nicholasville, KYJuly 26, 2017
No room for any advancement. Company is pretty good cares for employees most of the time. Pay is decent, but not great. No benefits, no matter your amount of hours. Only the office staff are good enough for any benefits.

Not at all what you expect! Tread carefully
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYApril 28, 2016
The participants and their families are great.

The founder is not involved in day to day operations and has no clue about the industry but makes most decisions. As a result the decisions are poorly made and have negative repercussions. She then finds a scape goat to blame things on.

Top administration is secretive and cult like. If you are an hourly employee you won't mind because you will not see them or have to deal with them. On the flip side you will not have support either. They expect a lot from you but do not give back, especially for a so called ministry.

If you are salaried it is because they don't want to pay you overtime. You are expected to work horrible hours and are not compensated or appreciated for it. If you question anything they say that you are being led by the devil. It's horrible!
Pros
Great clients and work that is fullfilling
Cons
Low pay, no appreciation and shady atmosphere

Christian Organization with Heart
Direct Support Professional (DSP) (Former Employee) –  Lexington, KYFebruary 1, 2016
This organization is very focused on doing their absolute best for the clients they serve. As an SCL they are responsive, team focused, and work flexible schedules to ensure employment and reduce turnover. The typical day at work is really based around what clients you work with and who your manager is. It's incredibly rewarding to work with clients and management.

Management and staff are less than diverse. These are mostly young to middle age white Christians and it can make moving up in the company difficult. I wouldn't advise openly admitting your own beliefs if you don't want to be stuck as a DSP for the tenure of your career in human services.

Overall I think LLM does a lot of good in the community and are an excellent community partner. They work day and night to ensure client safety and comfort.
Pros
Caring, Attentive, Fast Response Time, Listen to Staff, Inclusive
Cons
Christian Organization with specific mission, Non-diverse staff
