    I worked at Masonicare part-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great residents and co-workers. O.K. pay.

    Cons

    Management, most of Nursing, unfair distribution of work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your CNA"S, we love our residents and we are not the enemy. Try teamwork, we do. Nursing is not always right, they try to hang the CNA's for their mistakes. Not all but a majority. Could be a great place to work. It was when I first started, then shifted around, got rid of wrong people and replaced with poor substitutes who do not practice teamwork!

    Pros

    The benefits the company offers are great. As a whole, the company does show appreciation for employees. Beautiful campus.

    Cons

    Sometimes it feels like your concerns aren't being heard by your direct management team. In one ear and out the other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend some time getting to know your employees on ALL shifts and hearing their concerns. It's hard to develop a rapport with someone you don't see on a daily basis.

    I have been working at Masonicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The employees of Masonicare truly care for the residents and patients. I have never seen such a positive work environment. Leaving my previous job in "Corporate America" to come work for Masonicare was one of the best decisions I've ever made.

    Cons

    Technology is lagging a little but they're working on improving things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for all the little things management does from the ice cream socials all the way up to the employee appreciation event! Keep it up, we appreciate it very much.

    I have been working at Masonicare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Employees are treated like human beings. Contributions are recognized and appreciated. Most staff have a positive outlook and are helpful towards one another.

    Cons

    Technologically speaking, Masonicare would be considered highly advanced ... if we were located in Bangladesh. But the company is aware of the problem and is taking steps to bring us into the 21st century.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on ways to maintain and lift employee morale across all affiliates, clinical and non-clinical.

    I have been working at Masonicare part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The patients come first at Masonciare, bottom line. As a clinical employee I am proud of the level of care I am able to deliver on a daily basis and proud to work for an organization with such strong community ties as Masonicare. The organization's reputation speaks for itself. You will not find another company with as many long term staff - in many cases 20 years+!

    Cons

    Their IT department is slow to respond sometimes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! This is a fantastic organization that I would have no problem putting my own parents in the care of.

    I have been working at Masonicare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I was afforded a lot of opportunities during my time at Masonicare. My hard work was recognized, and I was promoted. I was also regularly given more responsibilities. I worked for different levels of management, all with different management styles. My experience at Masonicare definitely prepared me for my next endeavor. Compensation is fair, and benefits are great. The environment at the Wallingford campus is fantastic - there is always something going on.

    Cons

    Software is a little behind the times, but they're working on it.

    Current Employee - Staff Home Care PT in East Lyme, CT

    I have been working at Masonicare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great company philosophy. Top, top management make a good show of reaching out to people in all types of jobs at the company.

    Cons

    Company philosophy does not trickle down to health care workers on the front lines. As staff PT you will have to meet quota regardless of hours you're actually being paid to work. In a huge driving territory (expect to drive 50-60 min between patients pretty regularly), that means you'll work many hours each week for free between visits, driving and computer paperwork. Look elsewhere if you want to get paid for the time you are actually putting into your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay less attention to the bottom line (supposed to be non-profit, right?) and care more about employees. They talk the talk but don't necessarily walk the walk.
