Pros

Pay is going rate for the area, the place is clean and very well taken care of. The residents are for the most part well cared for.

Cons

The Administration is very snotty, there job is more important then yours attitude. Never enough nurses to cover shifts, they expect way to much of the nurses and really need a ward clerk to do the little stuff that keeps you from the care of patients. I do not reccommend this place if you don't handle chaos well. IT IS NON STOP!!!!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Chill out and respect your nurses, they are the ones covering your butts!!!!!!!!!

    Pros

    The industry is growing, and will continue to do so with the retirement of baby boomers. This company is the largest assisted living provider in the United States, and continues to consume smaller companies. It will be around for a while.

    Cons

    The company is huge and is micromanaged at every level (national, divisional, regional, and community). There is absurd redundancy in decision-making, and a horribly defined chain of command. Many times the left hand does not know what the right hand is doing within a community. Bait-and-switch tactics also used in the hiring process - bringing in to interview for one position, hiring into a lower-salaried position; promising benefits and bonus incentives, failing to deliver on them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every community is different. Stop treating them like every one could be run the same way. Stop buying new companies until you can manage the ones you have.

    Pros

    They have an excellent national sales director. On paper, things could be great!

    Cons

    The company micromanages everyone including salaried professionals. They expect you to execute external marketing goals/tasks and stay out of the building to accomplish these goals, however, the internal manager expects you to be in the community all day to do internal community tasks, tours, phone calls, meetings etc. I have never worked for a company that tells you they don't believe in flex time and that your job is a 7 day per week job (after you start working of course, not during the interview!) Rather than focusing on the positive accomplishments and results of their staff, they focus on micromanaging the process. They expect you to complete forms for every phone conversation and document marketing tasks in their database. At the same time, the regional director and VP harp on you for not being out the building most of the day. They underpay their worker bees and overpay their management. Management is constantly sending out self-congratulatory emails to one another yet ignore basic courtesy and respect to their workers. Expect emails 24 hours a day from management including on Christmas! I wish I had never accepted employment here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do some research...micromanagement doesn't work. It may work in the short run for your stockholders but exploited/unhappy workers and high employee turnovers will hurt you in the long run.
