    Former Employee - General Manager in Muncie, IN

    I worked at Life Care Centers full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I met a lot of great people. Being a manager is very satisfying. The pay and benefits were great

    Cons

    The Corporation is just not a place a decent person would want to work for. Management at the nursing home went through and was letting management go because the broom sweeps clean. No one stays very long at this nursing home.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Check their Administrator and Regional Vice presidents for honesty. They do write managers up for things staff say just because they are mad at them....there is process to see how accurate this is.

    I have been working at Life Care Centers

    Pros

    Location is great by HRMC, building maintained well,

    Cons

    Work at this location if you want a lot of stress in your life! Backstabbing & hostile workplace! Total lack of administrative direction. Lots of staff turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees before they all walk on you! Patient care should be number one & it is clearly NOT in this building!

    I worked at Life Care Centers

    Pros

    Liked what the company's mission and values are - towards residents, associates, etc. Enjoyed working with other associates locally and at various LCCA facilities. Promotion is from within the company, generally.

    Cons

    Extremely fast faced (unless you like that sort of thing). Can be very hectic at first for new employees to the company (e.g. fresh out of college, new to health/elder care industry, etc.) who do not have or bring similar experience from a prior employer. No match on 401k since 2011. No mentoring program within company for new employees (nothing was told to me about any kind of mentoring program).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing a mentoring program at your company for new or newer employees (especially fresh out of college or from outside the health/elder care industry). I appreciated the orientation program that I went through for an entire day. Sure, that was nice. I appreciated the training that my training manager provided and that was nice, too. Mentoring needs to be more than simply meeting with a manager once a month and going over goals from the previous month and explaining what needs to be improved the following month. The question should be, "What can a company like LCCA do to increase the retention of its employees?" A mentoring program could help with increasing retention of employees.

    Pros

    Most of the employees were friendly. Great team work. With the right management its not a bad place to get work.

    Cons

    Upper management unfriendly and really doesn't have respect for their employees. You are made to do multiple jobs ,work short and treat the D.O.N like a queen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Life Care Centers of America needs to get better management at Life care of Medina.
