    I had a very positive experience at LFS. However, there is a tendency to overwork employees.

    Pros

    Supervisors are supportive and wanting employees to grow and enhance their skills. Also the fellow employees are supportive and helpful.

    Make salaries competitive to retain quality employees

    I worked at Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    flexible scheduling, meaningful work, phenomenal co-workers, good benefits, community resources

    Cons

    disconnected upper management, quick burnout rate, HIGH turnover, HIGH turnover, HIGH turnover, lack of support for front-line workers, upper management makes important decisions without consulting staff and wonders why programs are unstable

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Trust your employees. Treat them with respect and they will be loyal. It is clear that the current pattern of decision-making is not inspiring loyalty or trust in your employees. Staff stay out of loyalty to clients and not loyalty to the organization. Have senior staff visit other offices regularly. Senior staff has an attitude that their time is precious and lower staff should be eternally grateful for their gift of time. Program staff know that senior staff don't prioritize them and are only looking for community props, The organization is very concerned with image, not keeping their employees satisfied.

    I worked at Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    • Opportunity to help people in need, very rewarding work. • Unique work. • Positions available for those with various education levels.

    Cons

    • Positions awarded through nepotism. • Main office in Omaha has rocky relationship with sub offices throughout the state, and they aren't even aware of it. • Handles situations unprofessionally. • Does not recognize who is *actually* working hard. Relies on gossip. (It is impossible to escape the politics, even if you keep to yourself and your duties). • Poor benefits.

    Advice to Management

    • If it ain't broke, don't fix it. • Recognize your hard workers. • Omaha main office should become more involved (at least aware) of the daily life in sub offices so they can make intelligent decisions and changes (instead of arbitrary ones). • Handle situations more professionally, please. • Consider the suggestions of the people on the front lines.
