I worked at ResCare

Pros

Pros- As a RN working for the company there was room for flexibility and independence. I was assigned to roughly 6 or 7 group homes at any given time and had the freedom to decide how I managed my time. Management was usually ok with giving time off.

Cons

The comapny was overall very unprofessional. First of all, my manager was in a completely different department than I was, which meant that she had no idea of what I was supposed to be doing. She culd not be a resource or of any assistance to me regarding my job responsibilities. I floated around and eventually figured out what I was supposed to be doing after about 6 months on my own. Management was very snobbish and clickish. The comapany does not appear to have genuine concern for it's clients or staff. I feel that they just needed an RN on paper to fulfill the federal / state requirements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire a Nurse Manager to be a support and guide for the Nurses. Compensate staff for being on-call over the weekends. Most improtantly, leave the office sometime to see what is going on first hand in these group homes. You have some really great support staff and Nurses that work for your company but are very rarely recognized.
