    APFM treats employees like toilet paper - when they've been used, tear 'em off and flush 'em.

    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great opportunity to help people. Great people in the industry. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Management.
    Constant fiddling with everything.
    Inaccurate description of the job. I was told that APFM spent MILLIONS of dollars acquiring leads, and all I had to do was dial for dollars. Before long that was completely false.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what kind of people would be good at the job, and then train and pay appropriately.
    Or change the way you generate revenue. Treating fellow humans they way you treat EAs is very wrong.
    This is a very bad company for 90% of the people they hire.

    I have been working at A Place for Mom full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A Place For Mom represents 'the right idea at the right time' - the company mission is to help families find senior care options that are right, both for the family and for the senior. The Senior Care world is growing rapidly as our population ages and life expectancies increase. Working at A Place For Mom represents an opportunity to really help people, and to at the same time, to work for a successful, growing company that is expanding and hiring, even in the present difficult economic environment. Since I began working here a little over 3 years ago I've had the opportunity to work in several different departments and have been promoted twice! I've had an opportunity to learn and grow with the company and my experience base and income have benefited accordingly - I feel very fortunate to work for this company!

    Cons

    I believe we as a company have learned a lot in recent years, and management has made significant improvements in the areas of training & development, and in compensation in the last 9 months - unfortunately there was a time when Eldercare Advisors in the field were paid on a comission basis and that did not work well for a number of folks. I feel like, based on what I've seen in the last year, that the 'cons' are behind us and that things will get even better going forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I feel like Management is pretty transparent and I believe there is great value in continuing and even expanding that transparency.
