    I have been working at LIAAC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've been at the agency for a few months and I feel like they are really headed in the right direction. There is a new finance team and they operate with the highest ethical standards. Everyone at the agency is very friendly and supportive of each other. Everyone sits together in the break room and it feels like a family. There is a new HR team in place and they are working hard everyday to make LIAAC a better place to work. Good benefits - employee only medical is free to employee.

    Cons

    Non-profit so lower pay. Professional dress code with no regular dress down days. Casual Fridays would be nice. If you need family medical benefits, that is expensive.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the good things going. Appreciate and keep your good employees. Continue to promote from within.

    Pros

    Some of the employees were amazing and have turned out to be lifelong friends.

    Cons

    I wish I knew where to begin and I can tell you that there is no end to the nonsense. If there was a negative star rating it would be that.

    The fundraising goes directly to the Executive Director's salary and the staff is expected to bring in that money. The upper management placate to the Executive Director even though they know she's a thief, a liar and a tyrant. They treat the employees like crap and expect everything. She's an HR nightmare and has been sued on numerous occasions and it was swept under the rug.

    They provide little to no services for the community and have been investigated for fraud. All management should be locked up for their behavior. Please tell everyone you know to stay away from LIAAC. And definitely do not donate a penny because it will only go to pay for the executive director's house on Fire island.

    They are still lying as the website has a picture of the old building in Huntington and they're not even there anymore. LIARS AND THIEVES!!!

    Advice to Management

    Resign and hope that Karma doesn't come back to you. Shame on all of you

    Pros

    None. Not worth putting in the time or the effort as eventually you will be let go.

    Cons

    Agency is run for the benefit of the Executive Director, who is a tyrant and takes advantage of every possible financial perk (and then some). It's almost like the place is her little kingdom, and upper management serves at the pleasure of the queen. Many of her "inner circle" have no management skills, and take terrible advantage of the employees. County and state officials need to put this agency under a microscope, and see how very little is done for the community, and how the CEO is being compensated far beyond what similar non profits pay their management.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the CEO and all current management. Disband the agency.

    I worked at LIAAC full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    You may get a plate of cookies at employee Christmas party. If you are an executive enjoy your oak counter tops and marble floors.

    Cons

    This place is a revolving door. They have an extremely high turnover rate as the CEO directly micro manages everything you do down to the way you comb your hair. Mandatory fundraising for employees that goes directly in the CEO's pocket.

    Advice to Management

    Non-Profit means that you should't take a profit. The fact that tax dollars are spent to support an agency that is so horrible to its employees and provides such little services is sickening.

    Pros

    none, unless you're one of the chosen few.

    Cons

    they treat the non-profit like it's a law firm. Always be wary of community non-profits..not in the actual community. The office is located in an office park and they do not allow clients to come to the office. The leadership is there because they've looked the other way and their positions are their reward for doing so.

    Advice to Management

    Actually live the mission of agency and stop policing your employees. Your turn over is insane because it is not a healthy work environment that rewards intelligence or creativity.
