I have been working at Extendicare Health Services full-time for less than a year

Pros

Awesome caregivers, great people to work with, tuition reimbursement, wellness plan, great mission statement,

Cons

Sarcastic Managers, Minimal personal days, vacation days do not rollover - use or lose, Mission does not seem to make it to front line staff, Unit holders 1st priority over residents, families and employees

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need more direct care staff - you can decrease overtime, if you improve staff:resident ratios, Why is your mission lost between those that create it and those who need to provide care by it.

    I worked at Extendicare Health Services full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Very focused and talented people at the top that stay on top of new trends in the business.

    Cons

    Too many layers of management and overhead at Area & Corporate offices. Minutia work required, even at high management levels in their centers. Expectations very high. You must have tough skin to work at this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Milwaukee---come visit your centers and spend significant time there so you can see what it's like in the trenches. The pace is unbelievable and expectations unrealistic.

    I worked at Extendicare Health Services full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Many excellent, caring employees who want to do the right thing. Good compensation levels.

    Cons

    Management talks but doesn't walk employee empowerment outside of corporate offices. Regional and Area operations are fiefdoms. Penny wise, pound foolish when it comes to investing in properties, programs, people. Many managers are personality vs. performance driven. Clinical services are inconsistent, with poorly implemented ongoing training. Overall culture that doesn't value training or education outside a narrow focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FInd ways to hear your employees without the filters of area and regional managers. Invest - with real dollars - in your workforce.
