Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find more ways to connect the mission of the organization to the people working in headquarters. Sometimes the meaning is lost when you can't "see" what you are working towards.

    I have been working at Mather Lifeways part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Environment is friendly, not stressful. You feel like you are not pressured to anything, but you still maintain overall productivity.

    Cons

    I cannot think of any outstanding cons to working here. Perhaps some people would think that a slow paced environment would slow productivity, however such was not the case, I found.

  2.  

    Top-level executives are very arrogant people - especially the CEO!

    Former Employee - Middle Management in Evanston, IL

    I worked at Mather Lifeways full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    This company offers a very nice benefits package. Also, the residents in the facility I worked in were very nice people.

    Cons

    The on-site employees get along very well. But the senior executives are very demanding, very rude, and very disrespectful. Initially I thought it was a great place to work. But as time went on, the heavy-handed management style became too much to deal with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many of the people working for you are constantly in fear of losing their jobs, and the high turnover rate has a lot to do with that. But you also need to learn how to listen, and consider that your employees may have some good ideas. Despite your arrogance, you really don;t know everything!
