    I worked at Lexington Health Care full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

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

    I worked at Lexington Health Care full-time

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Lexington Health Care full-time (more than 3 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the employees that do the work.

    Not a Place for Longevity

    Former Employee - Employee in Lombard, IL
    Former Employee - Employee in Lombard, IL

    I worked at Lexington Health Care full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    -The company RAKES in a ton of money. It is health care (nursing homes, etc.) for the elderly...there will obviously forever be an unlimited supply of old people needing a place to go. The money is there, but the salaries can be pretty weak

    -They bring in donuts every Friday, and on Friday you can wear jeans

    -Depending on your team, you can work with some regular people. Some teams are too diverse and hardly communicate.

    Cons

    -Health care so depending on position/department can be 24/7, and they expect your life to revolve around the job. No if/and/buts about it. They openly 'aren't fans of having to pay overtime' but are more than happy to have you work overtime hours in varied ways due to the 24/7 nature.

    -Everybody (at corporate) there seems to be miserable and always looking elsewhere for a new opportunity. Not a very young group, and this may be the cause of the seemingly 'lifeless' aura. The few young people that work there seem to get along great, but there are few of them.

    -Benefits are terrible. There is a 6-month wait until any benefits kick in after hire, might as well be honest and call it a contract-to-hire position. 401(k) isn't available until after a full year. Insurances are expensive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of just claiming "people before profits" in town-hall meetings, actually prove it. Actions speak louder than words. Employees scoff at these claims after each big meeting. Benefits need to be improved and without the long wait periods before their effect.
