    Management not willing to listen.

    Nursing Homecare Scheduler (Former Employee)
    Cheektowaga, NY

    ProsGood Benefits, Employees are nice. I was able to learn many software skills through out my 3 years there.

    ConsThey did not know how to deal with Stress levels. I had a hard time with management not listening to solutions. They only took one side of the argument - management, they gave me no support or positive feedback. I was stressed all the time and felt that I couldn't talk to anyone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Management oriented

    RPH (Former Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsPeople are great to work with. Many employees have been there 25+ years.

    ConsToo many levels of management and too much micromanaging

    Advice to Senior ManagementLet the employees take part more in the decision making when it involves the "hands-on" activities. What looks good on paper isn't always as good as it looks.

    UGH!

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsDecent pay - still not comparable to Kaleida

    ConsStaff - self serving cliques. If you hated high school, then don't apply here. Staff steals from other staff. They are lazy, disrespectful, and have "entitlement " issues. They think that just because they have been there forever, they don't have to do their job - after all, they have the union to protect them - regardless of what they do.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet rid of the lifers. Apply core values to patients AND STAFF.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Lots of opportunities to do a lot of cool work

    Technical Project Leader (Former Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsAwesome place to work, you can do as much work as you like or as little as you like.
    They really respect a work-life balance.

    ConsNo opportunity for advancement, not their fault, everyone here is a lifer, so someone has to leave for a management position to become vacant.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing.

    Don't get stuck here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Buffalo, NY

    ProsThe best thing about this place is the health care benefits, but they will cost you about $150 per pay.

    ConsIf you are lucky, your manager is clueless and just doesn't care about anything but has no skills to manage. If you are unlucky, your boss will make your life miserable.

    Training is non-existent. Promotions? What are they?

    PTO is used for sick time and holidays. Holidays are 5x/ year. If you need time off and have no PTO, you will hear about it.

    Staff is miserable, nosy, and backstabbing. You can bet they will go through your personal items, when you are not around, and take what they please.

    Forget transferring to another department. Your current department will not let you leave.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet a clue and start dumping some of the dead weight that has been hanging on for 20-30 years.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
