    Pros

    You get experience with all the levels of senior care. You have a choice to relocate in many places.

    Cons

    mandated corporate programs that sometime seem out of realm of resident needs and abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the talents of the your current employees to create programs without spending money on 'outside experts', when current front line employees are the most updated experts on all resident needs.

    Pros

    residents, my staff who worked their ass off while waiting sometimes up to 2 months for new hires to begin.

    Cons

    run run dont walk. I got 2 promotions things were great till i got to last promotion. Averaging 100 hrs a week no support, when i tried to CA a employee Corporate declined it or by the time they approved it a week went by that time its like punishing a dog for something they did a while ago. Residents complaining food was horrible. I agree YOU TRY FEEDING Someone for $ 6.00 a day. I did it but cant get the food that residents want, a same when they pay average rent of 5000. I finally gave notice after they demanded me to work from 530am-7pm 7 days a week until they could get me a pro tem to help me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    practice your cornerstones. Quality of life i never seen that with this company.
