    Great Experience

    Accounting Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsIt was an extremely friendly environment! I was well trained by the CFO himself and never did I regret a single moment of it!

    ConsCompensation was average, wish I just had more time here to see how far I could've grew.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Working here can be a positive or negative experience depending on who is your boss.

    Social Worker (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsVacation time off, when you have program that really serves the clients.

    ConsOffice culture, salary as compared to other not for profit agencies on the level of ICL, the higher up the management the less accessible they are. You can feel small and unimportant, like your ideas do not matter. Very much about appearances with many bosses.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake yourself more available to people across the agency, raise salaries, and actively work to improve the culture so everyone feels valued.

    Amazing and Horrific at the same time!

    Social Worker (Former Employee) Brooklyn, NY

    ProsTheir mission is great but often sidetracked due to the culture of medicaid reimbursement. The population is great to work with and you learn a lot when it comes to dealing with the poor, and chronically mentally ill. Pay is decent in comparison to other agencies, but poor when compared to the amount of work expected of you.

    ConsThe services given to clients fall short because of quotas needed in order to make enough money from medicaid in order to keep the doors open.

    You are promised a caseload (it's even in the job description) of 15 to 20 clients, and you end up with close to 40...

    the paperwork involved with each client on a monthly basis is so extreme that you often don't have time to do actual clinical work with clients who so desperately need it.

    High turnover rate, although if you can manage to stay here a year or so you'll be promoted if you're a team player (not necessarily because you're a good social worker, but because you don't make noise, don't complain, and buy into everything they tell you)

    Advice to Senior ManagementReevaluate your mission, and when you say the clients are the most important thing, mean it. Even at the expense of making $

    Lack of Communication

    Evening Residential Counselor (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsAt ICL, you have the opportunity to help people who are sick, homeless, substance users and etc. Sometimes you may find yourself making decisions, and taking on roles and duties of a supervisor. The experience is worth it for possible future endeavors.

    ConsThe staff at the residence, are very unprofessional. There are so many unrelated personal emotions, that causes friction for other individuals/staff comfortable to complete any task or job duty as required. There's also a lack of communication amongst the supervisors and the the staff who provide minimum support to the clients. The case managers do not speak appropriately to the skill builders/residential counselors. Last, but not least favoritism is a crucial role for this company, which causes the possibility to move up within th organization impossible.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIf an individual/staff have the potential to grow within the organization, there should more hands on training for that individual/staff to pursue another position. Depending on the experience of the individual/staff, the salary should be negotiable for every job title, it should not be limited to a person education status.

    Condescending

    (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsNon-for-profit so 13 paid Holidays, 3 personal days, 3 sick days/ trimester, 20 vacation days if exempt, 15 if non-exempt. Health benefits including dental, HCR, and other benefits such as pre-tax commuter benefits, and dependable care reimbursement.

    ConsPoor career advancement, very burocratic, employees and management do not understand the words "team-work", nobody takes responsibility, low paying jobs expecting Master's degree and above, managers often openly gossip about subordinates with other subordinates, condescending management. Healthcare cost keeps on increasing for the employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop gossiping and take some responsibility. Appreciate and reward your good employees. Utilize the talent from within and let your employees advance to make your organization stronger.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    My experience with ICL was unforgettable.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Brooklyn, NY

    ProsThe best reason hands down was; working with adolescent consumers with mental disorders.
    Also assisting consumers in reaching their goals. There's nothing better than seeing and knowing these young adults accomplish their goals. The consumers can and always will put a smile on your face.......if they believe your genuine and if they trust and like you.

    ConsThe senior staff are not professional and make decisions off of personal feelings not professional. They fabricate to save themselves and don't do any of their own work but takes the credit. This was just Coney Island Facility. I believe they should close this facility because it's corrupt!

    Advice to Senior ManagementAll of management should just quit, and ICL's higher-ups should rehire all new staff, because they are all in it for just the money and not to actually help the individuals residing in their facilities.

    ConsThe maintenance of the company regarding machines was a bit low. Due to which there was always the problem in the machines. But it was a good chance for me to learn a lot about the problems occurring in the machines.
