Pushing the envelope in senior living options

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Redmond, WA

I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWhile the volume of growth is unanticipated and exciting, the people at the control panel have a great balance of conservative and edge-of-the-envelope enthusiasm so the risk of having to pull back and retrench is heavily mitiaged

ConsSometimes we are too busy to handle all we have going on.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't be cutting back on employee empowerment when you should be tuning it up.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A challenging and rewarding experience!

Finance Intern (Former Employee)
Redmond, WA

I worked at Aegis Living as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe company culture is second to none. The senior staff has implemented an employee-first culture which makes all employees feel that their ideas and opinions are values ( which they are at Aegis). I worked in the finance department specifically and was blown away by the professionalism of the entire finance and accounting staff. At the corporate office each employee is working hard to provide the best living experience for all of the Aegis Residents. It would be a privilege to work with those folks again.

I was able to spend limited time at a few of the communities around the Seattle area. The staff at each community was very warm and welcoming and it was always wonderful to talk with the residents. The people who work directly with the residents are truly making the laster chapter of their lives a great one.

ConsThe downside of my position was that I was at the corporate office, so I did not get to interact with our residents very frequently. The company offers "field days" were employees from corporate go and work at one of the many communities in the area. This is a great way to gain exposure to the duties the care staff preforms. It is also a great break from the office!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the Aegis culture strong. As the personnel in senior management shifts, be sure to maintain the teachings and values that are instilled in ACE Training.

I have been working for Aegis for right around 3 years.

Lead Concierge (Current Employee)
Kirkland, WA

I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI absolutely love coming to work. The thought of being able to spend my day with the kindest residents really makes me excited to come to work everyday. Aegis is an amazing company to work for; The love and care that they give to not only the residents, but the staff. I couldn't pick a better place to work. I once was a caregiver, moved up to resident services director, and now lead concierge. I hope to be a general manager one day!

ConsI truly cannot find anything that I am unhappy about.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good work on making this compnay so successful!

Outstanding company to work with

General Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for more than a year

ProsOn a personal level Aegis is the most intensively challenging and immensely rewarding companies I have ever worked for. They provide many opportunities for personal growth and celebrate success both small and large, providing direct feedback and input from all levels of the company any from peers to the CEO. I haven't regretted my decision to become a member of his team even once.

ConsI wouldn't change anything. I have and would recommend working with Aegis to anyone I know.

Advice to Senior ManagementGreat company, great culture.

Best Company I have ever worked for

General Manager (Current Employee)
Los Angeles, CA

I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for more than a year

ProsHome office support to the field is second to none. The CEO has created and maintained a culture of excellence that is evident in the high quality of care we provide to our residents. I am very proud to be a part of this team.

ConsI have been completely satisfied thus far. This company is very transparent with their expectations and strategies for future growth. There are no secrets, and I appreciate that.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing...inspiring us to bring our "A-game" every day.

There really is a company in today's world that walks the talk.

Manager (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

ProsGreatness is an expectation. That greatness isn't just measured by the how you do your job, it's also measured by how you treat others. I love the fact that being positive, supportive, and kind is a huge part of the expectation. It really makes for a healthy, productive and forward-thinking work environment. Aegis is a very sophisticated, entrepreneurial, caring and business savvy company...like no other. Make no mistake, though, that the company requires people to do their jobs, run their departments, and operate their businesses exceptionally. I cannot recommend Aegis more highly to someone who can drive value through services, is charismatic, is diplomatic and empathetic, and connects with people on a real and sincere level.

ConsWhat you do at Aegis feeds the soul so effectively that one can tend to spend a lot of time at work. If you can balance that, and can become more self-actualized by it, then it really isn't a con at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementNever let the recipe be diluted!
