Pros

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

Cons

Behind 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 Management

Stop 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.

    I worked at Mather Lifeways

    Pros

    It was a good place to work at on a temporary basis. Very nice people and good opportunity to gain valuable experience.

    Cons

    Communication was poor. My supervisor often forgot direction or decisions that were given or made.

    Advice to Management

    Provide a mini orientation to your contract employees who are there more than a month. A semi regular review or "hey you are doing a great job" would be nice as well.


  2. Used to be a great job.

    I have been working at Mather Lifeways

    Pros

    good benefits, promote from within, 401k is matched, tuition reimbursement, great residents, christmas bonus, somewhat flexible hours, and a non-taxed christmas bonus based on hours

    Cons

    Horrible management and promoting within only lasts if you have personal relations with the bosses.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to work on communication with their employees. Rather than work together as a team they become a dictatorship and refuse to change.
