I worked at A Place for Mom full-time

Pros

There are many nice people to work with at A Place For Mom. The management staff is top notch and the experience level of the employees is very good. You can learn alot working at a company like this. Gossip is at a minimum. Everyone works hard and puts in 110%, however there is a fair work life balance and the attrition rate is low.

Cons

There are typical small company stresses. Very little chance of upward advancement since the company is small, however you know that going in.

    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some good people at the rank and file level. The company has a good mission.

    Cons

    Highly politicized culture created by the Expedia executives. Terrible benefits package including no 401k match, very expensive healthcare contributions, and no bonuses 2 review periods in a row. Extremely high turnover due to unhappy employees at headquarters.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I witnessed first hand the way employees were talked down to, ignored and belittled in meetings. Tone down the arrogance and stop assuming no one is competent in their positions.
