I worked at Presbyterian Homes and Services full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Residents were wonderful; some co-workers were as well

Cons

Management was very dysfunctional - in short, they 'walk the talk' only with the residents of their facilities - as an employer, they are like any other mid-size corporation - all about money. Lots of corporate politics.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

'Walk the talk' with employees as well as residents. Treat non-exempt staff with the respect you sometimes show to exempt employees. Toss out the bad apples instead of keeping them, in fear of lawsuit - document, document, document and then FIRE the bad apples. A LOT of good people leave because of your poor management/HR decisions re: bad apples.

    Former Employee - Maintenance Worker  in  Pewaukee, WI
    Former Employee - Maintenance Worker in Pewaukee, WI

    I worked at Presbyterian Homes and Services full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The residence are great, I enjoyed resolving or fixing any problems that they had on any given day. Enjoyed keeping and providing them the best service possible given the circumstances. Independent living, assisted living and dementia ward.

    Cons

    Front office, never available if you had any issues to discuss concerning equipment. Upper management stance ? repair existing equipment that was either not repairable or obsolete. Snow blowers, vacuum cleaners, and even personnel ladders. Basically upper management didn't fund the maintenance department and refused to increase the submitted budget. Budget was based on number of green slips completed, so preventative maintenance suffered. Not that the employees of the maintenance department and supervisor didn't do everything possible to maintain the facility. Upper management would not listen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out from behind your desks. Get in touch and tour your maintenance departments. Work a week in them. Try to understand it's daily workings. Another words try to understand it from their perspective. In the long run you will be doing a service in keeping down future facility costs and its residence's rent.
