I worked at Extendicare

Pros

The people who are there every day - nurses, DON, ADONs Adminstrator.

Cons

- Poor salary
- ZERO work-life balance
- Horrible disrespect by upper management (beyond Administrator level)
- No care for patients, they are cash registers to this company
- Systematic removal of outstanding senior staff over the past couple of years: They were all fired because the company leaders decided these people were making too much. So, to try and make the bottom line look good, new hires out of college that were willing to work for half the pay now try to pick up the slack, don't have the experience to do it, and ultimately fail, thus exacerbating the problems further. The result has been nothing short of a catastrophe.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean up your act before the feds come in and shut you down. People are more than the bottom line, they are flesh and blood and need CARE.

    Pros

    There are a few smart people who work here, unfortunately none of them are in management

    Cons

    Management is non-confrontational. They will not fire any employees that should be let go for not doing their job. Also, in lieu of performance reviews tied to pay increase this year, everyone is getting the same salary increase. Very demeaning to the employees who have actually worked hard this year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are too many managers in this company. There are managers that do not even manage people...just processes. Too heavy at the top and there is no management training. No one can grow in this company unless you are from Canada.

    Pros

    There is a number of employees who you would like to work with.

    Cons

    Negative on promotion opportunities, negative on management support and leadership, company is being accused in fraud by consumers and discrimination by employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure IT management and provide appropriate resources to employees to do their job well. Create fair and supportive environment.
