    I have been working at Life's WORC full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and focus on work life balance. There is strong leadership and opportunities for advancement. Management seems to have become more focused on leadership development which is a good thing!

    Cons

    The Industry is changing and so the company seems to trying to adapt. That means systems are changing which can be hard for us because it feels like more work initially.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communication open and teach us the changes in the industry so we understand the effect on our job. Overall a great place to work.

    I have been working at Life's WORC full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    I will skip this part.

    Cons

    Wow, as a member of this organization for quite sometime I am very overwhelmed and saddened by the negative environment in which people have to work in. In the past few months people who have worked here for a long time are no longer here. One day they are here and the next day they show up for work and are escorted out of the building. There is such hypocrisy going on it’s pathetic. People have retired and the place...

    Advice to Management

    Senior Directors have to start thinking about their brand out in the community. This organization used to be where everyone wanted to be, now it’s known has the place to be let go. The CEO needs to remember that her fingers used to just do the numbers and she was lucky enough to move up. Don’t forget where you came from, don’t forget if everyone below didn’t care for the vulnerable people in the agency you wouldn’t...

    I have been working at Life's WORC full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    I have enjoyed my 5 years working in the main office. The atmosphere is positive overall, with excellent employees who are willing to assist each other whenever needed. I have found that my supervisors/managers take the time to listen to my opinions and take them into consideration. The benefits are great - better than I ever had in the private/for-profit sector. Work/life balance has been consistently excellent....

    Cons

    Salaries tend to be a bit low, but are compensated for with great benefits. There is a lot of change in the industry as a whole (not just at Life's WORC) and employees that are not onboard or willing to adjust can be negative and uncooperative.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to employees at all levels and continue to create more opportunities for advancement.

    I worked at Life's WORC full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Working with the individuals is the most rewarding part of the job.

    Cons

    Not enough staff and consistent staff turn over. Senior/Upper Management out of touch and under qualified. They worry more about positive review on Indeed and Glassdoor then fixing major issues in this agency. Senior Management directs staff to write positive reviews - don't let them fool you!

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about your reviews on Indeed and Glassdoor and fix what is really going on in your agency. Shame on you.
