    I worked at Leisure Care full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic environment and fun culture. I felt well utilized but not overworked. No drama. Mostly good communication in the corporate office. Opportunities to advance. Fun parties and good perks (food, travel, etc).

    Cons

    Dress code was a little sharp, which got old after awhile, but nothing to complain about. It was a little hard to get my ideas across to management sometimes. I got very little feedback about my performance. I could tell it was "satisfactory" at the least but its nice to have more information.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Why are performance evaluations not standard? I could have used more feedback about how people thought I was doing.

    I have been working at Leisure Care full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good start to health care field working as a caregiver or medication aide.

    Cons

    The pay for employees giving direct care is very low while the cost to live in the community is extremely high. The scheduling in the Health and Wellness department is all over the place. They have you scheduled to work one shift until 10:30 PM at night and then come in the next day at 5:30 am. Hardly ever two consecutive days off in a row, always island days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You must show respect to your employees by having them properly trained and giving consistent hours and schedule each pay period. If someone requests more training it shouldn't be immediately denied. The more respect you show your employees, the more they will respect you and you will have a higher retention rate.

    I worked at Leisure Care full-time

    Pros

    Loved loved loved this company. Community was sold so got a new owner (which has turned out fine). Loved the three thirds lifestyle and the five-star fun. Learned a lot. People are amazing.

    Cons

    Company supported great programs for residents and staff alike, but the building could benefit from some upgrades or updates which would eventually happen but took a lot of advising.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They have always been supportive. Continue to do this and you will move mountains! Proud of all of you.

    I have been working at Leisure Care

    Pros

    Great opportunities for growth within company, management has significant freedom to run each individual community, wonderful industry to work in. Good benefits programs and opportunities to travel or transition to a different community internationally. Great people within organization to work with. Knowledgable business structure and an excellent retirement model.

    Cons

    Very poor compensation in comparison to comparable positions, very "top down" run company. Little to no training structure in place for nearly every position within communities, and you therefore must be VERY experienced and self-motivated to succeed in any given position. Often fire at will.
