Pros

Great opportunity to really use your nursing skills while being able to take the time to really make a difference in the lives of your patients and their families. Very rewarding!

Cons

Leadership skills are less than desirable. Management seems overwhelmed and unable to provide adequate support and training their team requires. Monetary raises seem non-existing for the last 3 years.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide your managers mandatory communication and leadership training.

    Pros

    If you screw up and you are the office pet you virtually can get away with murder. This used to be a very good company with Christian values, but ever since Corporate America took the helm, values out, money in.

    Cons

    It's only a matter of time before the system collapses. Management is corrupt and pays no heed to employees who work hard. Favouritism abounds and you can get compliments from families, but unless you are the favourite it will go unrecognised. Corporate pays no attention to our problems.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look for a job where you can work in charge of mentally challenged people so that they cannot understand what is being done to them.

    Pros

    Good salary, benefits, PTO, excellent education training programs and resources. They have excellent values in theory, but not in practice.

    Cons

    Senior corporate management is out of touch with the realities at the local program level. Their values need to be updated. "We take care of each other" does not apply to the regional and senior corporate management in relation to local management and staff. The sad part is that management above the local level is so afraid for their jobs that they allow themselves to be manipulated and lose their values and their voice. People get put in positions that they are not qualified for just to be puppets, this promotes a poor corporate culture. Be careful if you are going to work in a new start program because they will close you down in the blink of an eye, thats how they "take care of each other".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider your integrity when doing your job just as Hugh and Ester would have wanted. Let local staff be heard and do what they were hired to do. Finally, be careful because what goes around comes around.
