    Pros

    Great people. Ethical treatment and billing. Low productivity requirements for therapists leading to higher quality care.

    Cons

    Lower than average pay. Benefits are average. Frequent low census.

    Advice to Management

    Management should try to be more competitive with their compensation of employees to avoid good therapists leaving for higher paying jobs.

    Pros

    The jobs itself was very satisfying.

    Cons

    The culture of the company was very christian focused, and this was mixed in with most of our meetings and other company gatherings, which felt unprofessional to me. To others this might be ideal but to me it felt unprofessional. Also, there was a little less patient variety and diversity than other home health agencies I have worked with, since many of the patients live in Presbyterian Homes locations, which are more expensive to live at.

    Pros

    Employees were compassionate and enjoyed their jobs, taking everything to the next level. Great place to work and to make a difference!

    Cons

    Living quarters are very close, making and sort of flu outbreak rampant and destructive of anyone that gets in its path

    Advice to Management

    Nurses and aids appeared to be always short staffed, making it more difficult for residents to be up and ready for all of their therapy sessions.

    Pros

    Paid for continuing education and training Most of the other CNAs and nurses are great Flexible schedule for part-timers

    Cons

    Management does not communicate well with the people delivering the healthcare Perpetually understaffed Work for full-timers is unmanageable, very strict hour requirements each week

    Advice to Management

    Put the needs of your employees higher up on your list of priorities, you need happy, healthy CNAs and nurses who are not overworked to provide good care for the residents

    Pros

    The work-environment is laid-back for the most part. The training consists of a few online workshops (to become a server), followed by a few shifts of working under a fellow server. The work-life balance is great because there is no working from home required and the job is enjoyable for the most part.

    Cons

    Occasionally have to deal with frustrated residents or clean up bodily messes in the dining room.

    Pros

    Good place to be a new graduate nurse. There a lot of skills that can be gained from working here.

    Cons

    Low pay, ever decreasing benefits and vacation time, no sick time. Staff is overworked, there is just too much to do to get it all done by the end of the shift. Management has unrealistic expectations of employees. When you try to bring anything up to them, they will just tell you what you want to hear and do nothing about it.

    Advice to Management

    It seems that all that management cares about is money, they are expansion driven not resident care driven. It is definitely a corporate culture. Residents may have nice places to live, but the staff is not taken care of. Wake up and realize that the employees are flocking out of Pres. Homes because they can do better elsewhere. Increase pay, benefits, and sick time and you will have more employees and better employees. I know that the money is there, it is just going to huge buildings. Now you have buildings, but you have no staff and everyone suffers. I'm guessing the upper management is doing well though...

    Pros

    I have worked for PHS for almost 5 years. At the end of 2014 I was approached by another organization with an excellent opportunity to grow in my career in a different way and so I took it. I was there only a few months when I realized how special it was to work at Presbyterian Homes and Services and how much I missed it. My co-workers were truly like family to me. The Christian ministry, the ability to make a true impact on so many lives and the commitment to improvement are all things that I didn't realize I would miss so much. When I was approached to return to PHS I jumped at the chance. Not only does this organization constantly strive to be better, but it also truly wants to see it's employees grow and provides opporunities to do so. I have witnsesed first hand many times over PHS' commitment to promoting from within. I cannot recommend PHS enough.

    Cons

    No organization is perfect, and PHS has it's share of growth opportunities. Being in the non-profit healthcare sector is especially challenging financially to PHS. If your goal is to make as much money as possible and have the highest salary in your field, then a non-profit organization such as this is not for you. PHS also has grown rapidly and is quite large and spread out, which causes challenges in application of policies and standard procedures. Recruiting and onboarding are particular challenges due to the largely decentralized processes. All of these things are top priorities for the organization and I have faith that they will continue to work to improve and get better.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to see to be a leader in this sector. Do not forget that employers are our most important asset and continue to find ways to honor them and help them to grow and improve at all levels.

    Pros

    Residents are a pleasure to work for. many staff are helpful.

    Cons

    Too many managers. Micromanagement. Actual workplace operation Inconsistent with policies. No positive feedback for employees, just negative.

    Advice to Management

    Come to your facilities and talk to the floor staff. Encourage the managers to put a smile on the employees faces as well. That way you would retain valuable staff rather than having to hire and train more.
