    I worked at Avante full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It is a beautiful building. The employees use to be caring and compassionate. The pay in good for the area.

    Cons

    The upper management does not care the employees. All the care about is the bottom line. The moral in the building is horrible.

    Advice to Management

    You need to learn to care about your employees. And do not take them for granted. Show them that they are appreciated for all of the hard work that they do. Do not demand more of them. Simply saying good job, way to go, goes a long way!

    I worked at Avante full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    On the Corporate level, they are doing the best that they can. Lots of great nurses and cnas that care about the patients.

    Cons

    There aren't many advancement opportunities. There is favortism amongst the managers. Some bad behaviors overlooked for years and employees that should have been reprimanded, instead praised. Removal of the Human Resources Manager position was a poor choice as this multi-faceted role was left for the Administrator and other staff to handle. Staff shuffled around frequently to accomodate upper management without taking into consideration the staff's preference or choice. Turnaround is high, therefore causing other staff to ALWAYS work overtime or pick up extra shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to send in moles on the facility level to come back to them and share TRUE experiences. Surveys aren't very helpful becuase even though they may be anonymous, staff feel they will be retaliated against. And when Corporate does enter the building, staff know and are then on their best behavior. It would be best to TRULY hear what is going on in your buildings from someone that experiences it first hand.

    Pros

    The convenience store across the street in walking distance, the mall in walking distance.

    Cons

    Don't care about the patients, can't get supplies, salary poor, prejudice

    Advice to Management

    Order supplies such as soap, incontinence products based on what is needed not "the budget" patients have to sleep on towels due to no pads, No cultural diversity, only hire 1 particular nationality/group of people. Corp complains only, didn't recognize or praise any level staff, especially direct care staff, never thanks staff for doing anything positive, place will give you a stroke...

    alot of times census is down and they have alot of turnover in administration

    Advice to Management

    need someone at the top to take control and set rules the same for all employees. If everyone is treated with the same respect more people will want to work and like their jobs.
