    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.

    Pros

    room for advancement and career opportunities

    Cons

    room for advancement available because they do not follow through with paying the packages they offer to management. Biggest liars I have ever worked for.

    Advice to Management

    When management qualifies for the bonuses you claimed you would pay, then PAY IT!

    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

    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.

    Pros

    That's not why I'm writing this review....

    Cons

    Nurses: this facility will set you up for failure and/or burnout. Your license is not safe here. The workload is ridiculous, management is a joke, and no employee here is happy. The systems and policies are archaic and create mistakes.
