I worked at Lutheran Social Services of New England
Pros – The management was generally very supportive of my needs to balance work and family life. There was still a decent amount of vacation time, though it was just previously knocked down from what it had been. The general atmosphere is still very positive in that people still do care about what they're doing and how to make a difference in the lives of their clients.
Cons – The culture of the company does not learn well, nor does it know how to listen to ideas which would help move the company through difficult scenarios. There's a lot of "that would be helpful" and then the ideas get ignored. Even if there are reasons for not taking the ideas of those lower than senior management, there could be much more engagement with new ideas across the board.
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to what your employees say, and genuinely engage what might be useful. If there seems to be a good idea, no matter where it comes from, don't be afraid to try it and/or bring it to your own boss.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
