    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive atmosphere. Knowledgeable senior management team that seems to genuinely care about front line staff.

    Cons

    Wages not competitive because "employees should find value in working for a good company."

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time

    Pros

    Good coworkers, friendly and committed staff, nice beautiful building, nursing staff usually support each other really well.

    Cons

    High turnover, low salary, administrators show little interest in the well-being of the aides on the floor, the word "power trip" has been used.

    Advice to Management

    Take an active interest in the aides while they're on the floor. Don't assume they're lazy, get to know people before you judge them. Be more positive and encouraging, there's too much negativity coming down to the nursing staff and aides.

    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time

    Pros

    Fun coworkers, discounted food, use of pool and gym

    Cons

    Low LOW wages, management protects the favorites, directors drinking with servers and other employees, favoritism galore, no confidentiality talking to HR or manager

    Advice to Management

    Professional and personal lives should be separate. When someone comes to you with an issue, keep it confidential and don't retaliate against the person confiding in you. This is not high school.

    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some of the nursing staff are great to work with Lots of opportunities to pick up extra hours CNAs that are working toward a nursing degree can usually move directly to a licensed nurse position when they pass their state boards

    Cons

    Serious staffing issues. The facility I work at seems chronically understaffed, with very high employee turnover and low satisfaction, at least among CNAs. I'm asked to work double shifts, come in early, or stay late almost every day, though I seldom do. I understand that companies get call-outs, but isn't that what on-call staff are there for?

    Advice to Management

    Offer higher pay or more incentives to the nursing staff to keep people around, instead of constantly hiring more CNAs to fill the gaps. Make the call-in process more organized, so that on-call staff can come in quickly rather than trying to guilt full-time staff into working a double shift.

    Pros

    Flexible, caring managers, they see you as a person and do the right thing, nine times out of ten.

    Cons

    Corporate overlords making decisions when they don't really know what's going on. Backwards labor budgets that don't make sense.

    Advice to Management

    Have more backbone with your bosses and corporate. They're not always right and it's the only way things will change.

    Pros

    Discounted food in the Cafe

    Cons

    Instances of management with blinders on who protect and retain staff who are bad for moral, show a poor work ethic, are dishonest and abrasive to coworkers and residents.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes to the obvious.


  11. Not "Miss Right" but can be "Miss Right Now"

    Pros

    It is an easy gig for an I.T. person who just needs a job right now until a real opportunity comes along. If your job is just a paycheck and your real focus is you personal life it's ideal.

    Cons

    Slow environment. sometimes it's mind numbing. Company is small and very flat. The demands are so low that nobody is going to leave such a cushy existence so upward mobility is unlikely in the I.T. dept. No real career path but to be fair, this isn't a technology company so they are probably providing all that makes sense.

    Advice to Management

    None
