    I have been working at LIAFS part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Kids are great! It's very rewarding when you get through a child. I work in family first house

    Cons

    This company doesn't take care of their employees in terms of days off and vacation time. They will also give you a hard time if you try to take off with no time (even if it's an emergency)

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. If they feel appreciated thru will stay

    I have been working at LIAFS full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, Administration is supportive and fair. This is not an easy job by any means,, but well worth it. I have been here for almost four years. The Executive Director tells us that we all have important roles here and that's why the agency runs well.

    Cons

    I have to travel almost 4o minutes to work each day

    Advice to Management

    Know that your employees appreciate all that you do for us and the kids and families we work with.

    Pros

    Well regarded social service agency. Experienced management and consistently developing new programs for the community. Administration values employees and treats them well.

    Very structured work place, which is good. Sometimes wish we had a bit more free time during the day, besides our lunch hour.

    Advice to Management

    Continue all of the good work that you do.

    Pros

    The kids, and maybe the experience. Was good at first but things change very quickly

    Cons

    Everything is micromanaged, the pay, the rules always change depending on the situation or the person. No consistency and they make it too much of a liability for not enough pay

    I have been working at LIAFS part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are no pros to working for this company other than the residents that we serve and provide for.

    Cons

    Residents are not provided with the best quality of care. Staff are very underappreciate and not provided with enough support. Staff are not allowed to be creative and proactive. Managements position on staff is "Be seen and not heard."

    Advice to Management

    Management forgets that the reason we are in this line of work is to help young people. Young people we receive have been through some very enduring times and have dealt with unfathomable life situations. We should be providing these young people with an environment that is positive allowing them to flourish so that when their stays have come to an end, they can leaving knowing that they are an asset to society. Instead the program confines these young people and places upon them strict rules and farcical restrictions prohibiting these young people have positive growth. These young people have dealt with enough hardship, provide them with the quality of care they desire, instead their voices fall on deaf ears.
