    Pros

    Ability to work in an organization that promotes Christian beliefs and values. Independent and innovative ideas are discussed openly.

    Cons

    After having worked in the for profit world of aging services, trust me when I say there are no cons worth mentioning.

    Advice to Management

    continue to seek new and innovative ways to serve seniors

    Pros

    Clean environment, good activities for residents,variety of food choices for residents

    Cons

    Lack of support from co-workers, inconsistent training for new hire's, not enough time to settle into rountine of your assigned floor,poor communication.

    Advice to Management

    Would love to see more accountability on the part of those whose job it is to train new hire's on the floor, and supportive help without feeling like your incompetent, no toleration for backstabbing but stepping up and supporting a co-worker who is struggling and remember a good worker takes time.

  3. Not a great place to work.

    Pros

    The majority of staff members are caring. The properties are beautiful and well cared for. Upper management is interested in and follow up on client feedback.
    It's nice that staff is recognized for years of service and attendance.

    Cons

    Staff members in nursing homes are overworked. Patients have to wait entirely to long for assistance, often wetting themselves while waiting. Food is lousy and food service slow. Bathing of patients twice weekly is not satisfactory. Nursing home residents are placed in their wheelchairs in front of nursing stations to vegetate. Takes weeks for new patients to get TV and phone service. Patients have to ask repeatedly for their needs to be met, even simple needs like water.

    When management closes early due to weather, staff is required to use their personal time. Most companies just pay their employees when they are sent home. Very few paid holidays, no benefits for part time employees.

    Lower level management is unskilled.

    Advice to Management

    Lower level managers working from home is a joke. Housing service manager (TW) leaves early to pick up her child. Only returns calls from upper management. Underlings are ignored and frustrated. New managers are given free range to make up rules as they see fit. Upper management should hold them accountable by asking for feedback from employees.

    Pros

    There is flexibility in allowing you to balance home and work. The mission statement is great-- the core values would make me excited to work for this organization. Unfortunately, these values are not consistently demonstrated.

    Cons

    There is very poor communication among staff that begins with management. There have been management issues for years; however, it seems like it continues to get worse. The morale among staff is low and continuing to get worse.

  6. Great care, poor management

    Pros

    great care given to residents, direct staff are pretty awesome, great food...depends on each facility...

    Cons

    operates like a for-profit, management plays politics between facilities and corporate office, building management not supportive of direct employees
