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.
