    Pros

    The best part were the residents and co-workers. Benefits were ok. Unfortunately, those were the only redeeming qualities.

    Cons

    There is a culture of not caring about the well being of not only the staff, but the residents as well. It was all about the bottom line. Would continually have us work short but then be upset when didn't take lunch break, which is impossible to do when only have 3 CNA's to 67 residents. Do not recommend working here.

    Pros

    I really like some of my coworkers and most of the patients there. It has a homey feel to it. The activities workers and physical therapy staff are great!

    Cons

    The nurses seem to be responsible for everything. As a nurse you can be answering phones, admitting new patients, caring for 20-26 patients and because we are almost always short Nursing Assistants, we do some of the duties they are hired to do too. Nurses hardly ever get their breaks here. This is not really a safe situation for patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should put out the extra money to have an extra nurse as a team leader who can help out the nurses and do admissions when needed. It is not safe for our patients as it is now.

    Pros

    Management is flexible and is willing to consider each employees individual contributions.
    Our total focus is on patient care, that is why the place is so popular. We strive to provide the best care for the patients we serve. There is amazing teamwork and leadership at this building.

    Cons

    Pay increases may be a long time coming and vacation time may be lacking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If unable to give salary increases, consider giving more paid time off. It is a pleasure to work here. Thank you for the opportunity to practice being mindful.

    Pros

    The morality of the company draws you in. I am at the front desk, so there is more privacy compared to the area where the caregivers work. The work is quite simple, basic clerical. Answering phones, filing, etc.There are stressful moments but I think the stress is pretty minor.

    Cons

    Challenges are gossip. But if you stay to yourself like me you'll do great. A lot of people come to you since you're at the front desk and vent, both co workers and families of the residents. If you're compassionate and patient you'll do fine. My two biggest cone are the very low pay. $9 an hour and you don't get a raise, or probational increase till the next year and its .15¢. Another great con is you don't get the chance to really know the residents. You know of them by their paperwork. But the caregivers receive the opportunity to build the relationship with them and the family.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase your pay. Your employees stay not because your pay but because they genuinely care about the residents.
