    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A family styled work atmosphere that recognizes talent, dedication and promotes from within, while also benefiting from being a part of a generously loving heart directed toward the elderly and their families.

    Cons

    Due to demand, state regulations and the drive for only involving top of the class employees / colleagues, the work load can be daunting. It would be helpful if, in the least, more part time employees could be hired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire more part time workers to assist in menial, but incredibly time consuming, tasks.

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Aegis is a very people-driven culture. It is very obvious they care about their employees and about their concerns. I work in the nursing side of Aegis and it is obvious that they communicate well, treat employees with dignity and respect, and have little "treats" that help employees (such as $1 lunches and $5 family meals).

    They have little get-togethers every morning called "stand up" where you can pretty much talk freely about what's happening in Aegis or in your life. It's a very personal way to communicate.

    I consider the pay to be competitive with some drawbacks (see the Cons section), but I do consider Aegis is a company of opportunity and growth as there are general managers within the company that are also registered nurses.

    Cons

    As a nurse these are the following cons:
    1. There is no differential for an evening/noc shift. As such there is sometimes fierce competition for scheduling for "prime" shifts as there is no incentive to work an evening or a NOC shift.
    2. Vacation hours are hard to come by. 90 days have to be worked before you see an hour of vacation pay, although sick time is provided after 30 days.
    3. OT is pretty much necessary in order to function properly here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While I do consider the salary/pay to be competitive, I feel that there is not enough incentive for a person to take a NOC shift from a day shift position. This, to me, is one of the biggest concerns because scheduling is then based on a seniority position on high-demand shifts.

    I would expect a high-class organization like Aegis to pay nursing (and care managers) the same differentials (or at least introduce one) for those who have to work an evening or nocturnal shift with the differentials scaled as appropriate.

    Pros

    Aegis Living makes you care for someone else like if they were your own family, you get to teach them different things every day. Great Company!!

    Cons

    The challenges are that sometimes residents can be confused and don't remember what they need help with, so its hard to assist in their needs.

    Pros

    I came to back to work after being off for 5 years and was referred by a friend. I love working in a place that I do not get up in the morning and dread going to work. I love the residents and the people I work with everyday. I have learned so much about the business side of nursing and dementia care. the pay could be more in a hospital setting, however, I have been there and done that. Sometimes, you have to choose happiness over monetary rewards.

    Cons

    The pay could be more. However, I have been there and done that. Sometimes, you have to choose happiness over monetary rewards in order to feel fulfilled. They do have great perks of awesome food, daily and weekly meetings, and an open door policy with the general manager.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Always look to the lowest paid people to give you the honest feedback. They have the direct care with our residents and know truly how a company runs. They are the heart and sole of the company and daily make the choice to work for Aegis. Internally promote! People want to advance and want to know that all the hard work will pay off in advancement. Would love to have more corporate visits. Gets people excited about the direction of the company and the goals.
