Everyone seemed so nice at first . . . but oh my gosh - how things changed!!!

Middle Management (Former Employee)
Evanston, IL

I worked at Mather Lifeways full-time for more than 3 years

ProsGreat benefits, and in general a focus on taking good care of their residents.

ConsBehind the scenes, this is not a very good place to work. Senior management is primarily made up of arrogant workaholics with no family life who micro-manage every aspect of the organization. HIgh turnover rate.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop micro-managing everyone. You are stifling all of the creativity in your employees. Your high rate of employee turnover will decrease dramatically if you'll give up your fear-based, autocratic management style.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
