    Pros

    The residents are the ones who bring pleasure to this job.

    Cons

    Families should be aware they are paying a large some of money for mediocre living quarters, meals and care. The company has made deep budget cuts to stay afloat and in doing so cut basic things like housekeeping and food service. If you have a relative there I would recommend you check the floors under the bed and the bathrooms and ask yourself is this really worth it. Staff are overworked and not given the resources to do their job with confidence.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the CEO-read these reviews and take them to heart if MG really does care. Clean house starting with general managers. As other reviews have mentioned some have become so wrapped up in their own self-worth they will bully and treat others poorly to elevate themselves.

    Pros

    Retirement Plan
    Hourly rates
    Working with great staff and seniors
    Management gets trips for training. They are basically a waste of money for the company and the management attending them.

    Cons

    A nasty, greedy corporate culture that will become the demise of the company. Mean-spirited management, greed, greed, greed and more greed. The upper management says that they care about the residents, they even have regional meetings where they try and make themselves look like compassionate people, they are not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Egotism will make you fail.
