Pros

great residents, nothing else to say

Cons

over worked, underpaid, understaffed, lacks adequate resident care, major turnover in staff as well as management, no communication between depts, some managers either have no clue or do not care about what goes on in building, rude, disrespectful, constant threats of termination, promotions based on friendships and brown nosing instead of performance level, not given any chances for advancement, worst company I've worked for-RUN!don't walk, I would never refer anyone for employment or refer anyone for care.

Advice to Management

Integrity Hotline is a joke(not confidenticial) take complaint seriously and investigate. Corp should not be calling the person you are complaining about resulting in management to retalliate against the employee and ultimately termination. Corp should be making unannounced visits to communities and also talking to various employees and residents during each visit. How else to know what is really going on. Employee surveys are also a joke. Management has access to these to read and can easily discard bad reviews or replace with a new survey filled in by themselves. Make surveys online so they are confidentcial and received by corp. Make all classes available to every employee so we can advance within the company. Uphold your Mission Statement. Teach you ED's how to listen and respect employees.

    Pros

    You do get a paycheck every two weeks

    Cons

    Resident who ppay over $4000 a month are budgeted around $160 a month for all of their food. Corporate and Regional management squeeze every penny that they can. Residents are short changed at every aspect of their life. Employees are overworked and underpaid. Residents get minimum treatment and not enough money for suitable food. Corporate profits are huge and level of care and feeding are bare minimum.

    Advice to Management

    Get off of your high horse. Try treating your employees with respect. Salaried managers are so understaff they need to work 60-70 hour weeks while getting paid for 40. Managers treat employees with such a level of disrespect it is criminal. Hourly employees are so underpaid and overworked to try and drive corporate profits. Management should try and treat thei employees like they are human and not treat them like dirt

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say about this corporation.

    Cons

    Worked to death. No appreciation. No training or education. Thrown in to a job and expected to sink or swim. Divisional personnel will make certain they are not held responsible for anything. Will make certain you are held responsibile. No feeling of security. Always waiting for the foot to drop. Witnessed many personnel being walked off the job. Favortism abounds. There is so much wrong in so many ways. When you voice a concern, you are out of there. If you want to be a "favorite" keep your head down, work yourself to death, kiss butt, and keep your mouth shut. Budget, budget, budget is shoved down your throat. Heads in the bed, not dead.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. I saw many good people walked off the job, and many others just quit. What is left is not too many you would feel comfortable working with. Educate and train your personnel. Don't expect them to do things via instructions from google.
