I have been working at American Baptist Homes of the West full-time (more than an year)

Pros

The mission and the culture, everybody is dedicated to the mission so all the employees are working together, hence the team work approach and the term Team Member.

Cons

Work life balance can be a challenge, the mission is so great, that many people put in long hours in order to make this a great place.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Ensure accountability and consistency are a focus.

    I have been working at American Baptist Homes of the West (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice building. Pretty-good pay. No supervision at all so you can absolutely do your dismal thing. If you can't spell or punctuate or write complete not runtogether sentences, they'll hire you!

    Cons

    You'll have to deal with residents who are intelligent and educated and have been places and done things. They use big words sometimes which makes it hard for you to maintain CONTROL!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit ignoring certified letters and start hiring managers whoi truly love older people and have some idea of administering HUD's guidelines even-handedly.

    Pros

    This company has no pros for employees below administrator level.
    If you are an incompetent administrator, this is a good place for you to further your career.
    Promotions and good salaries go to those who can play company politics well.
    De facto trade skills, good personality and a concern for other employees is not required.

    Cons

    If you are below an administrator, you are of no value to this company.
    Training is relegated to administrators and above.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire administrators who know how to manage and have empathy for their fellow employees.
    Track their performance and give attention - in earnest - to complaints about administrators accused of abusing their charges.
    If an administrator flagrantly violates your company tenets, fire them. Don't shuffle them off to another 'dioceses' or ignore the problem.
