    In theory, great "standards and philosophies" in practice- not so much.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsYou can bring your kids and pets to work. The residents are amazing and a privilege care for.

    ConsThe standards that the company were founded upon are now mere suggestions. When Loren Shook rolls in to town, everyone goes in motion- not out of love, but out of fear. The company has become census driven, person centered care is a thing of the past. Benefits are outrageously expensive, there is no transparency or safety for associates to voice their concerns. HR is a joke. Company spends more time flying people all over the place than providing meaningful opportunities for associates or residents. The company appears to have changed focus since the REIT became involved.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to your roots and reasons for doing what you set out to do and stay there. Your residents and associates deserve this. Treat your associates as if they are important to your operation. Obliterate the culture of fear that has been created surrounding "home office." Hold people accountable to the standards you created.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Love>fear???

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe people that work with the patients are amazing. They are the reason Silverado has been so successful.

    ConsUpper management gets you to "drink the koolaid" and as long as you don't ruffle any feathers you will be fine. But as soon as they don't "LOVE" you anymore you will be gone.

    Advice to Senior Managementlook beyond what you might think is Love...others have great things to add too.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Love is not greater than fear

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey take really great care of their residents.

    ConsThe irony is their slogan...this company is FEAR driven and will let go of their talent in a snap. Just ask the Silverado Survivor Club.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLive by your motto

    more work for less people

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFamilies and residents are wonderful. Some of your coworkers are great

    ConsManagement doesn't have realistic views of the job they expect to be completed. They bring in more residents but fail to hire more caregivers. Caregivers treated like they are expendable. Family members of residents fight for caregivers but are ignored if they don't threaten to move out. Expect nurses to work overtime of the clock. Hard worker beware only people who brown nose get real raises the rest get pocket change. New hires make more than caregivers hired 10 years prior. raises are usually between 10-50 cents...you will never get 50 cents though. Liked CEO until recently seems even he is going against his own mission statement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLOVE before fear. nobody should be treated like caregivers get treated at this place. They are the backbone on which this company survives. A few communities need new administration, get on that all the good caregivers and nurses who haven't left are looking for new jobs.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good Communities and Bad Corporate Management

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Irvine, CA

    ProsSilverado communities are very good for residents.
    Great place to work until 2011 when company sold...finest people anywhere. Rightfully won awards.
    Company's philosophy is Love is Greater than Fear

    ConsWith one or two exceptions, all the great people are gone from the corporate office.
    The executives are having a very serious problem finding and keeping anyone in leadership positions because some new managers are very controlling and old managers are afraid.
    Sadly, "Love is Greater than Fear" is now bogus.
    HR is unsympathetic - even to the point of betrayal - to good, long-term, trusting employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdmit you recently made some big mistakes, get rid of the bad guys and get your company back on track to the big success it was before you sold it.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
