Great place to work!

CNA (Current Employee)
Newtown, CT

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

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

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

Advice to Senior ManagementSpend 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.

Great place to work!!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Wallingford, CT

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

ProsThe 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.

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

Advice to Senior ManagementThanks 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.

You will be more than just a number at Masonicare

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

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

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

Wonderful organization I feel blessed to be a part of!

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)
Wallingford, CT

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

ProsThe 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+!

ConsTheir IT department is slow to respond sometimes.

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

Lots of opportunity!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsI 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.

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

Staff home care PT job means you'll be working for free--beware!

Staff Home Care PT (Current Employee)
East Lyme, CT

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

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

ConsCompany 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 Senior ManagementPay 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.

Still the old boys club in upper management.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Wallingford, CT

I worked at Masonicare full-time

ProsThe caregiving staff is amazing to work with and the quality of care given is some of the best in the state.

ConsUpper management made up of mostly Masonic fraternity affiliated males. Don't expect to climb the ladder unless you are planning to join the fraternal order. Higher management females are often in nursing or marketing/sales and are hired for their appeal. History of laying off staff who have health issues and take leave even though it is a healthcare organization.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry doing 360 reviews. Many managers may have strong fraternal ties, but are poor managers of people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Masonicare is a great place to work!

Registered Nurse (Current Employee)

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

ProsPeople are great to work for, listen to what you have to say, and work with you to make you happy.

ConsParking is less then optimum, some managers are closed to ideas and opinions. Some floors are better than others as far as attitudes

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
