    I worked at Lexington Health Care full-time for less than a 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.

    I worked at Lexington Health Care

    Pros

    Great people, very busy environment. Management was very relaxed for the most part. As an intern didnt do very much hard work just replacing computer parts for IT.

    Cons

    If you work for IT you will be on call certain weeks, 24 hours a day. Also you may have to run to different facilities at a random time.
