    I worked at Life Care Centers

    Pros

    Proximity and central location, cleaner facility. For now, some decent co-workers to work with, but that's a revolving door. Still pays on time.

    Cons

    Managers and executives are so afraid of losing their own job, so its almost always a one sided win for them. In one general meeting, the former exec director said that these nursing homes have more lawyers on staff than nurses. So check their Nurse to patient ratios. If employees get in any problems, you are on your own. They will progressively write you up and fill up your file for easy processing of your firing. It is a franchise, like Mcdonalds, so everything is dictated by corporate. Profit driven motives is the rule. (Need to maintain that $2+ Billion dollars, profit every year, mostly from Medicare - see Forbes Magazine). For staff retention they still do those 1960's style "Employee of the year/month" worthless awards. Medicare reimburses the same in all states per patient, yet here they can't seem to pay/benefits like those other states.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Restructure. These patients need more hands-on care providers and staff that will clean them, feed them, talk to them, etc. than statisticians, office workers and executives who tour the sites. If your paycheck comes from Medicare, you are not worthy of that unless you have actually provided some hands on care to those needy patients, even one 8 hour day a week. You do have enough corporate executives to rotate everyday of the week.
