Pros

The job is dependable and the company supplies free meals to all employees who work during their shift. The environment is kept clean.

Cons

There are large numbers of residents who must be medicated and under your supervision as a nurse, which is a safety risk for the resident. The 11-7 nurse is responsible for the entire house of resident's, which increases resident's overall safety related to 75 + residents in the home at one time to 1 LPN.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management needs to consider hiring 2 nurses to handle the residents in the assisted living. The management needs to learn to support each other.

    Pros

    very caring front line staff - nice atmosphere - good benefits and rewards potential - lovely location - free meals - great group of seniors- Atria sits right on the banks of the Severn River, overlooking the water, with the naval academy bridge, boaters, and the naval academy in the background, Residents really enjoy sitting out on the huge open porch, complete with rocking chairs, for horseshoes, magnetic darts, ice cream socials, or just looking at the view. Nature has a calming effect on people and it's very beneficial to have this location advantage. Staff enjoy it, too - and don't mind working 4th of July to see the fireworks over the water.

    Cons

    tyring to do too much with too little staff - modest pay - lack of true appreciation/respect of front-line staff maybe due to managers time limitations, trying to do too much with too little . . . For instance, for employee appreciation week, managers put together - quickly, I believe - a whole plan for fun and recognition. But the reality was very different. The first day - ice cream social day - was poorly advertised and consisted of the director and the housekeeper manager dishing up cones or sundaes to a maximum of about 12 employees. Then the residents got word of free ice cream and that took care of that. The trading places gimmick never happened, and the other ideas were either poorly executed or explained. But there was a free t-shirt for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make it more of a priority to show appreciation and consideration for staff. Very often, events are held for the staff and only the wellness staff are (minimally) involved because they are the only employee group regularly meeting together -necessitated by their function - so they have a chance to be informed.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    This company has a pretty good benefits package for the line staff... unless you're a manager.
    This company actively promotes tuition reimbursement... unless it doesn't fall in line with what they want you to learn.

    Cons

    When you work for this company, you break your back with long hour, hard work, and the "Can do" attitude. This is what they expect ALL THE TIME. There is no real compensation for this, and as a manager they say "well you get a bonus". Reality- there is no guarantee of a bonus, and no way to climb the ladder anymore either. This company used to be known for management being able to climb the corporate ladder, but not anymore. Once they have you working for them, there is no further review of your resume' or talents to see if you would qualify for a better position.
    The employee satisfaction surveys from the managers are completely false. Every manager will give the top ratings (a lie) just so they can help the score of the survey and possibly receive a decent bonus. Those bonuses by the way... don't come until March- How about January???? pay some bills, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're middle management, my advice to you is: Look for another place to work. If you've been there any amount of time, then you are probably very proficient in your job. Other employers will actually pay a decent salary... and not necessarily demand as many hours.
