    I worked at Erickson Living part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Loved my co-workers and some of my managers. The rest I cannot say anything positive about them

    Cons

    My hours, my hours, my hours. This is why I left because I wouldn't have. They cut my hours and I tried to get some more but the scheduler/manager didn't really feel like it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the hardworking employees who want to work with Erickson Living for a longer time unless of course y'all decide to cut hours and makes things unstable for us.

    I have been working at Erickson Living part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Generous company that offered great scholarship opportunities and bonuses. Better than minimal wage as wait staff starts with a salary about a dollar above minimum wage (because there aren't any tips)... I've really learned a lot from my time at Erickson and feel like it has prepared me well for future jobs.

    Cons

    Raises are only in increments of about 35 cents no matter how well the employee does. The hours are kind of a pain because the restaurant is only open from 4-6 (the cafe is open all day though) so if you want lots of hours this probably shouldn't be your first choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Participate more with lower staff and try to make the company better. Only one of the four managers I have had actively participated in the company and gave the impression that he truly cared, the other three were just there and did not have much of an impact in my opinion.

    My supervisor verbally abused me and threatened me. Erickson's response? Make my life miserable until I quit.

    I have been working at Erickson Living part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Provide fairly great training, the hours are flexible so its a great job for a college student or high school student, If required hours and good grades are kept in school than scholarship opportunities are available

    Cons

    Management does tend to have favorites

  6.  

    Not sure how they made it on the Fortune's list of top 100 places to work. That's a crock.

    I worked at Erickson Living

    Pros

    Working with the residents is rewarding.

    Cons

    Management decisions and promotions are not based on actual performance. Annual performance appraisals are shoddy at best.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Executive management should really dig into the comments given on annual employee surveys. They are true but only a drop in the bucket. Dig in and you'll find more but don't bother unless you really plan on making the changes employees so desperately need.
