Suggestions for improvement

  • Pay your people what they deserve. Many of my colleagues have Masters degrees, have been with the company for several years and are making $14 an hour. When they do receive an annual raise it is about 33 cents. These colleagues handle multiple responsibilities, juggle numerous case loads, are devoted to their work, and barely miss a day. Such devotion from a caring staff should be appreciated -- even in down times. Understandably, this is a not-for-profit, funded on many government grants ( and now, especially in the state of Illinois, there is no funding at all).. But even during the good days, Heartland has found a way to keep salaries incredibly low while demanding much from its employees. It is time to spread the wealth a bit -- especially as those formerly at the top of Heartland received annual compensation in excess of $300,000 annually.

What I like about the company

If you are passionate about human rights' issues regardless of race, gender, ethnicity, or religion, this is a great place to work. The colleagues are forthright and friendly. The atmosphere is compassionate and caring. The benefits, in terms of health, paid vacation, time-off, are good.

What I dislike about the company

The pay at Heartland Alliance is abysmal, especially if you are giving direct service to clients. This is a union setting and the union seems to work to keep the pay as low as possible - but they do a good job of negotiating benefits. The pay scale is known to be far lower than industry standards. Everyone who works here does superior work and overlooks the lack of adequate compensation because the corporate culture is one of caring for others. Still, at the end of the day, you have to pay your bills and it is hard to do on an inadequate salary.
