    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.

    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.

    Pros

    In my opinion Aegis is a great place to bring a resident to have help with their activities of daily living. In my observations as a care manager I see that most residents love to be involved in activities such as walks around the block scenic drive, music and clay crafting.

    Cons

    At this time I don't have anything to address.

    Pros

    It is a privilege to serve the generation that has contributed to make the society I am able to enjoy. Dwayne Clark, the company CEO, has cultivated a work environment which encourages its employees to become the best they can be. It is truly a "family" environment and a pleasure to come to work every day.

    Cons

    We become extended family of those we work with and it is never easy to say "good bye" to our co-workers as they advance in their career path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Would love to have more training opportunities.
