    I have been working at Greater Lynn Senior Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good amount of paid time off.

    Cons

    Nepotistic, favoritism run amuck, awful pay even for a non-profit, it doesn't matter if you do your job well, it just matters who you're friends with. Nepotism directed by the management so there's nowhere to turn to. The annual raises are like 20-50 cents.

    Advice to Management

    Pay people a living wage. Don't hire family and friends to work in the same department particularly in management roles.

    There are none! Find another job stay away from them!

    Too many supervisors that complain, management makes false promises, bad work environment

    Advice to Management

    The best thing to happen is the MBTA takes away GLSS contract and management looses their jobs.

    I worked at Greater Lynn Senior Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Medical benefits right off the back, always have hours available for overtime, paid training

    Cons

    Lack of clarity in the rules for the $1,000 signing bonus they offer because they do not pay as much as the other Transportation companies. Dispatchers are unfriendly and do not know how the roads that's unable to help drivers find a location. There's no communication between management upper level employees and the drivers leading to confusion as to how the company actually works. Suspensions are dealt out like a pack of cards at a poker night many and often with the intent of forcing employees to quit or be terminated in order to reduce costs. In short the company uses Shady business dealings in order to keep its work for ignorant of the rules to prevent them from succeeding.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your drivers with respect, pay them a fair wage, the clear and upfront with them about all policies and bonuses from the beginning. Don't treat most valuable asset like something you can just throw away and replace doesn't work like that

    Pros

    No pros to speak of.

    Cons

    Supervisors are unsupportive, unhelpful, lazy, and cliquish.
    Good work is not acknowledged or rewarded.
    Low pay.
    No chance for raises or advancement unless you are friends with the right people.

    Advice to Management

    Supervisors need to have the mental capacity and emotional maturity to carry out the responsibilities they are hired to do. Professionalism is severely lacking at GLSS.

    I have been working at Greater Lynn Senior Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The mission of GLSS is laudable. Adding to the independence of the elderly and people with disabilities is a great goal. Not only helps the customer, but also helps the family because they do not have to take time off from work to take loved ones to appointments, shopping or social events and entertainment.

    Cons

    GLSS has adopted the mission of making money. GLSS is not concerned with the individual worker or their needs. The company terminates employees without going through progressive discipline and says "let them fight it." Discipline is not enforced equally with all employees. The pay is low and benefits are expensive. There are managers that lie and make decisions based on personal feelings. This has been proven and upper level management ignores it.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to make this potentially wonderful company an impersonal organization that does not care about people. Clean house. The management team is running this company into the ground. The companies financial profile, future outlook and chances of getting another contract with the MBTA are poor at best.

    I have been working at Greater Lynn Senior Services full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, flexible work schedule, most employees are helpful, not a highly stressful job,management understands there are problems that arise that are not easily or quickly resolved and don't pressure anyone to make matters worse,

    Cons

    They oversell benefits to cover for what has to be the lowest possible pay scale.This is a full time job and we shouldn't have to work another job to make ends meet,to make matters worse, no over time available,unless they need it,and that's very scarce.
      Over paid,under qualified workers that take full advantage of company,which if looked at closely would be considered stealing, simply because they think they deserve it because of time in company, (the employee hand book specifically states you are paid for performance,reliability and quality of work, not tenure ). The bigger the liar,thief, backstabbing employee, the further you'll get in this company. The big mouths point out everyone's faults to cover their own inadequacies,
        This company is high school all over again, if you're not on their team you won't last here., if you're honest, trustworthy and speak the truth, you're an outcast that threatens their deceptive work ethic. Then it's game on to smoke screen management, which isn't hard because they're already brainwashed, to force you out.
          Company is full of deceitful people, stealing their way to retirement.

    Advice to Management

    You know what's going on, and it's hurting what could be a financially beneficial company that is spoken well of. There's so much potential in many unappreciated workers,tap into that! Stop listening to the bottom feeders, they're liars to and about you.
