    Being a case manager

    Case Manager (Former Employee)
    Aurora, IL

    ProsQCUL can give you experience in working with youth, understanding career development, and learning program management (budgeting, building partnerships, etc.)

    ConsLeadership needs to change ways. There is little value for professional development. I never was supported for wanting to attend a conference, for example, and had to hide the fact I taking courses. I think its because they don't keep staff members very long. Three years or so, and you're usually out.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGood management can add value. Pay attention to programs so that crises don't occur. The culture is a bit too stifling. Encourage innovation and understand that risk sometimes mean failure.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Terrible company to work for.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsSupposedly strong history of helping African Americans reach economic equality

    ConsExtremely high rate of turnover because they treat their employees like dirt. their housing dept is in shambles and they have a supervisor that doesn't know the programs. Very poor organization. They are an embarrassment to the parent company in NY.

    The Las Vegas Urban League does good work for the community

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThe Las Vegas Urban League does good work in the community to help the underserved. If you want to make a difference in the lives of people in Las Vegas and North Las Vegas then the Las Vegas Urban League is a good place to work.

    ConsThe Las Vegas Urban League has unneeded bureaucracy. The benefits are not that great and the pay is not that great.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGive more and better benefits to employees.
