Promised independence & professional support but underhanded micromanaging is what corporate delivers.

Pros

Overall, staff good to work with and the therapy department is wonderful! This building really has some great things going for it!

Cons

Inconsistencies are bountiful and the turn-over in management and department head position only complicates this problem further. The corporate leadership is not friendly at all and if they are, you can usually feel that they are not genuine.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Follow through with what is explained in expectations but give the support and the tools that are needed to be successful in any position in that building!

    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.
