    Pros

    Not much at all other then getting a paycheck , do not expect praise or a even a thank you for being overwork and underpaid. A lot of demanding, racist patients that will use derogatory language toward staff,

    Cons

    terrible management ( or lack thereof) lazy workers that do not want to do their job. Nurses verbally abuse CNAS !!! You have to have tough skin to work here

    Advice to Management

    Please hire people that want to work. Also hire people with experience . and not a lot of young people that quit after their first check.

  3. Great teamwork

    Pros

    Staff works well together. Have some of the best nursing managers.

    Cons

    Supplies can be in short supply at times. Patient load can be heavy at times.

    Advice to Management

    A better training program needs to be developed. Also a hotline for employee concerns and suggestions would make a tremendous difference. In services regarding changes in policy needs to be more effective. At times things are changed and then never relayed to staff.

    Pros

    Good Services, clean and nice facilities

    Cons

    Poor leadership and poor run company that is very disorganized and all short term goals. The company is not patient driven it is only census driven. Turnover is over 75%

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees instead of setting them up to fail

    Pros

    People generally good. Many freedoms in terms of doing your work---not "micro-managed"

    Cons

    Matrixed organization. Disconnect between "corporate" and "field" Weak administrators who are poor managers. C-level not on top of what is really happening

    Advice to Management

    Listen to non-management employees; hire caring administrators; some corporate managers are not people persons and turn off field staff. Profit should not be #1 priority but it seems that way

  10. The residents were my number one priority, and ultimately, my downfall.

    Pros

    The residents. Without question. It was certainly not the overpriced health benefits, or the free lunch. Also, there was a nutty lady who worked there who never failed to entertain me. She would ask for 5 orders of chicken noodle soup every day and she would write strange songs about belly dancing. She would come in every morning and ask me if I was fully appreciating the smell of the freshly cut grass or the sound of the quacking ducks in the distance. I think she may have been high on ketamine or perhaps was badly brain damaged. God, I miss her.

    Cons

    I began to realize that I was never going to make even a lateral move within this company. It just was not in the cards for me. While another employee who started at the same time as I did climbed the ranks from a resident partner to the administrator of the entire assisted living floor, I wasn't even given a chance to interview for a different position where I'd be getting paid even less. I'm sure management would call it sour grapes, and maybe it was, but I genuinely and deeply cared for the people who live there. I think about them everyday.

    Advice to Management

    Give people a chance to prove you wrong. And seek treatment for your personality disorders. There is still hope for you.

    Pros

    There is a great Greek restaurant across the street from the Lombard office.

    Cons

    Management is terrible. The husband and wife team that are running Merit Sleep and Lexington in the Lombard are people that only care about when they are going on vacation to Florida every 3 weeks. The employees have not had a raise in 3 years.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees that do the work.
