    I have been working at Hebrew SeniorLife (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is a lot of diversity amongst the employees, mutual respect, and teamwork. There is always the exceptional shift when people aren't perfect but overall it is a great environment. The facility is extremely clean, has a home rather than institutional feel to it. Rehab is a busy floor but lots to learn and lots of support from co-workers and manager and practitioners.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't horrible but it definitely could be better in comparison to other places

    Pros

    It's a truly a wonderful place to work. The culture is collaborative and forward thinking. All of the staff members are positive contributors, making it an ideal work environment.

    Cons

    As with most medical settings, it's long hours that are always busy, very little down time, which to some is actually a ppositive aspect

    I worked at Hebrew SeniorLife full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Worked in smaller group off the main corporate campus. Co-workers were amazing with a true Team mentality and fun atmosphere. Challenging work but very rewarding.

    Cons

    New management made life very difficult, The non-profit became very corporate and concentrated on the bottom line and not the mission.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of the mission and the employees and the bottom line would take care of itself.

    I worked at Hebrew SeniorLife full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    90 percent of the staff is friendly and helpful. Public transportation is very close by. In some positions, it's possible to have a flexible schedule. Employees can learn a lot, depending upon location and division.

    Cons

    Often hiring paperwork the agency provides new employees with is not accurate. This leads to confusion for the employee during the annual appraisal process. Appraisal questions do not accurately relate to an employee's position in some departments. A lot of outdated software and equipment is in use is various departments. Too many people don't know whom to contact in other departments/divisions for information/assistance/certain tasks.

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more transparent with staff concerning whether a position is supported by grant funding, agency-earned dollars or other means. Create a cross-training module for all employees so that there is a better chance for an employee to have another viable position within the company. No one should be anxious about whether or not he/she will have a job when funding dries up.
