    I worked at Extendicare part-time

    Pros

    One on one care with patients who appreciate your care. Hours available to make extra money overtime is always available.

    Cons

    Not enough employees..so you have a ton of patients like between 10-15. Employees call off all the time. Hard work. Constantly moving to answer call bells.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough employees to make sure that the staff isn't being overworked. Make sure that the Nurses help answer call bells so the CNA's aren't running around all over the place and so that the patients get the care they deserve.

    Great people to work with!

    Regional support from corporate was very haphazard

    Look closely at what regional directors are doing to create turnover

    I worked at Extendicare full-time

    Pros

    Easy to get promoted because nobody wants to be in management with this company.

    Cons

    Does NOT pay out bonuses to management. Even with a deficiency free survey they will still not pay. Scandalous company that does not care about their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Pay out the claimed bonus structure available. Take care of the employees who do their part.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers who will help you out whenever you need

    Cons

    I've been one CNA to 20 patients at this place. One nurse to 35 patients. Dangerously understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Fix your dangerous staffing. Spending the money on extra employees will mean less fines from the state--why don't you understand this concept?

    Pros

    Great company, great benefits. Wish they were not leaving the U.S.

    Cons

    Does not pay out any unused vacation with 30 day notice....that is the only "con" I would mention.

    Advice to Management

    Wish they were not leaving U.S.

    Pros

    Great resident , but it's not for everyone it's a behavioral facility. A lot if extra hours to always pick up

    Cons

    Short staffed all the time . Management won't listen and don't help, will not fix problems even if you take it all the way to the top of management!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff

    I have been working at Extendicare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great training provided to upper management

    Cons

    No support from regional teams; corporate keeps most leadership roles occupied with conference calls, webinars, or reports. Little or no thought given to enhancing the quality of life for residents.

    Advice to Management

    Remember why you got into this line of work.

    I can't think of any pros for this company

    Cons

    Too many things to do even for the most talented time manager, understaffed.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees.
