    Pros

    The nursing staff are great :)
    Opportunities to transfer
    Overtime availability is no issue

    Cons

    We are constantly understaffed and its so bad that management denies vacation even if we give them MONTHS notice. We are still expected to do the work of 4 CNAs when only 2 are there. Most of the management staff are SO RUDE and so condesending that its making people run away. This company needs to stop buying buildings when they dont even have proper management in the ones they already have.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink who you hire for management...just because they have a nice resumé doesnt mean they're a nice person.

    Pros

    Excellent communication among the Clinical Care team, no drama, open and honest. I was impressed by the amount of Corporate required training that was required. Although I have 25+ years experience in my field, they took the time to make sure that I was aware of all the policies and procedures. Very nice place to work! Excellent benefit package!

    Cons

    No cons to be noted

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work to be able to recruit and retain employees, word of mouth from current employees is your greatest asset.

    Pros

    They had friendly residents and nurses. The pay was great and it was close to home.

    Cons

    I was a C.N.A. and they basically just told me to start working, not knowing any routines. I was fresh out of CNA classes and needed a little help. The girls that worked there wanted me to fail.

    Pros

    Company offers great benefits and a preceptor program. Plenty of opportunity to transfer within the company.

    Cons

    Over worked, under paid. Will hire anyone with a CNA license and throw you to the wolves in a matter of 3 short days. High turn over, constantly working short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Take your time to screen your potential employees. Have management on the floor visually seeing what is going on. Don't wait for something to go haywire to then make it out to the floor to see that your staff is exhausted mentally and physically. Listen to your employees opinions and don't brush them off.

    Pros

    Taking care of the residents.

    Cons

    Corporate Consultants are extremely rude, use a "divide and conquor" approach to pit floor staff and managers against each other. There is no help offered with staffing challenges, no matter how short staffed buildings are, all paperwork is expected to be completed first, caring for residents is second. Turnover is huge due to the workload, stress, and no appreciation of employees, with exception of top positions, which receive frequent bonuses for cutting staff to bare minimum. In no way a positive environment! Voicing concern about work conditions makes you a marked employee. Much favoritism, staff promotions based on whether employee is a "yes" person, not at all based on experience, meaning working hard will get you nowhere in this company. New ideas are not encouraged.

    Advice to Management

    Bonuses to ED's and DNS's for cutting staff to bare minimum should stop. Why would you reward fostering an unsafe work environment? The Consultants should be required to take a class from Miss Manners- everyone understands they have a job to do, but being rude, belittling staff to the point of tears, pitting staff against each other obviously does not promote teamwork. Neither does favoritism, which is rampant and causing a great deal of friction amongst the staff. Perhaps you should take your annual staff surveys more seriously, sharing the results openly, instead of them being a secret. Do exit interviews with staff who leave. It would be quite an eye opener to hear what your buildings with the most turnover have to say.
