    I have been working at Mary Lee Foundation full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Dedication to clients while being supportive and fair towards employees.

    Cons

    Only because of non-profit status, salary levels are not the equivalent as corporate levels.

    Advice to Management

    Please continue your ongoing support of employees!

    I have been working at Mary Lee Foundation full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Paid Time off -Benefits-Vision, Dental, Life, Medical -Closed Weekends -Provides a Chance to help serve the disabled community

    Cons

    -Micromanagement -Toxic Work Culture -Inefficient Systems-Excessive supervisory approval required, lack of updated software/technology. -Little to no on boarding/Training -Risk of bed bug infestation -Understaffed/ No motivation to take on more staff -Poor communication -Adequate Job Description not provided -Termination possible without warning or intent to correct beforehand.

    Advice to Management

    High level of micromanagement prevents staff from being able to complete their job efficiently or proficiently. More staff and empowering delegation would help the flow of the organization immensely. The choice to increase responsibilities on staff but not provide promotions or proportional pay is problematic and shows questionable labor ethics and a limited long-term vision. My experience has demonstrated to me...

    I have been working at Mary Lee Foundation

    Pros

    The Pros to the company would be the clients. Working with the clients just brightens up your day.

    Cons

    Managment is very disrespectful to their employees. And they don't give raises. Whatever you get paid when you first start will be your compensation even if you been there for 5 years. You can't really live off of 10$/hr.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being disrespectful to your employees and give raises. In turn, y'all wouldn't have such a high turnover rate.

    I worked at Mary Lee Foundation full-time

    Staff is always willing to help you out if you're struggling; great training; good communication; clients are wonderful; can be laid-back at times; many things to do

    Cons

    stressful at times; very understaffed (which is good if you're looking for alot of hours but not good if you're easily overwhelmed); some clients/staff are difficult to work with

    Advice to Management

    increase pay and staff appreciation, especially for staff working there for years
