    If you have a problem with someone harassing you, going to management don`t help. Then having to do the lazy evil ladies work because the hang with the boss and she isn`t gonna make them do they job, They must have some good secrects with her.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don`t hang out with your employees. And don`t play favorites.

    Pros

    Benefits: paid time off, over time, desired hours are given

    Pros

    People you get to help.

    Cons

    Executive senior leadership cares about profits (theirs!). Rents keep going up. Residents and employees are hurt because of this. I would love to see stock options given to the employees who put the huge profits in Senior Management's pockets. Shame on your greediness. They don't care about their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    John - quit being such an idiot on director teleconferences. Your lack of professionalism floors me.

    Pros

    The employee's really love the residents

    Cons

    In order to get a Bonus ED would not spend money to make the place look nice. No place to advance unless you want to be a regional which means living near LA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your Managers, do not go behind their back to the hourly employee's your managers will loose your respect. Don't look at Bonus look at what you can do for the residents as they pay a lot to live their.

    Pros

    This company is dedicated to being the best service provider in the senior living industry. Starting at the support center, they help every community across the nation, start their day with a quick meeting with communications, support and Q&A with and for all the staff and directors together so that everyone is included in updates and can have questions answered daily. Communications is excellent. At this meeting staff is acknowledged. It makes us all feel proud to be a part of the team. So the stage is set every day with not only this meeting, but a later meeting for the next shift since it's a 24/7 industry. We also have a group, and often smaller, trainings every month. We can be promoted because this is a growing company & they promote from within whenever possible. Benefits and rewards and bonuses are good. Employees tend to stay for a very long time which makes it a nice environment to work for so many reasons, the biggest is that they are happy and the seniors feel confident they won't lose their staff that they love. It also is good because everyone knows their jobs well and are rewarded for exceptional service, which helps their income. It means employees grow with the company. Employees live the mission statement with pride. The directors have regional support as well as national support. Overall this is a very organized and well-oiled machine.

    Cons

    Although there are cost of living increases, staff awards increases, staff rewards for exceptional service and long term incentive checks, and bonuses, which all add up, the entry level pay starts low. If you don't stay with the company long you wouldn't recognize the growth potential. You apply for an hourly job or a management position in this industry because of your role in the community and because of the good you do not because you will earn the same type of money as in higher paying industries. So occasionally someone starts working there w/a bad attitude and you notice them like a sour apple.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the computer programs and cut the paperwork down. Some of the computer tasks seem redundant. It doesn't make sense to spend valuable time working on a computer program that asks the same questions more than once. The computer support is absolutely excellent, knowledgeable and fast, but the new programs are cumbersome.

    Pros

    The residents, interacting with them. The longevity of deparment heads who trully care about the residents. The families of the residents.

    Cons

    The long hours, treating people like crap, verbally humiliating them on conference calls, lying, yelling, making people cry, people fear for their jobs, creating a hostile work environment, leading by fear and intimidation...this is what upper management does.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Terminate upper management wake up and realize why is there so much turnover, listen to all what former employees have to say. Turmover of Ed and sales impact the reputation of community and ultimately occupancy.
