Eh.....Nothing more to add...

Department Manager (Former Employee)
Wilton, CT

ProsBeautiful Building with peaceful surroundings. Frontline staff is amazing.

ConsAll about the revenue and not about the residents.
Daily calls on how to get more residents on services even if they don't need it.
Unfair billing and assessment practices
Pressure, pressure and more pressure to perform.
No Regional support at all.

Advice to Senior ManagementBecome more involved in the PEOPLE that work for you. Management by fear is no way to work when you job is to care for our seniors. It IS about the residents and not about the bottom line.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
