    I have been working at Sava Senior Care full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The residents and other employees within the company are very nice

    Cons

    The pay is an obvious reason. I am expected to leave early on a regular basis so I don't go over the 40 hours. Also, the people who are at the top of the job chain within the building never acknowledge you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give the help when you say your going to help. Don't have laundry employees doing housekeeping on the side. Listen to advice we are trying to give you to help things run more smoothly

    I worked at Sava Senior Care full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Room for advancement. Sava likes to promote from within. Some nice people to work with. Individual facilities differ but the facility that I worked at was filled with wonderful family of employees. Corporate management whoever was a different story. The facility administrator plays a large role in the treatment of staff

    Cons

    Corporate management is definitely geared for profit only with little concern for the facility residents or staff. No Human Resource employees on a facility level so facility management and employees (many of whom are computer-limited) have to manage things for themselves. This results in many benefits being missed or denied. (Which I think was the corporate intention).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your residents and your staff are the backbone of your company. You need to put them at the forefront of your planning. Instead of constantly trying to cut benefits to both residents and staff, try reducing the large meetings for corporate leadership - the huge conference in April in Atlanta, and the CEO roundtable trip. Do your Administrators really need to get free Ipods, kindles, designer sunglasses, etc delivered to their luxury hotel room daily during the CEO roundtable trip. Couldn't that money be used for your line staff employees who can't live on the wage you pay?

    I worked at Sava Senior Care full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pay is consistent, bonuses are easy to get. they have amazing physical therapy and restorative care for residents, and dining options for residents are good. At a job like this, you should know it will be hard work, but the perks are really in how they treat the residents.

    Cons

    Not enough funding for facilities, time off has to be bartered for, management and corporate is hard to work with. Short staffing is a constant issue.

    I worked at Sava Senior Care full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I learned a whole lot while I was at Sava for 12 years. I was able to work my way up to a certain point and then management changed and everyone stopped caring about the employees. During both pregnancies, the flexibility was amazing.............I owe that to my direct manger(s) only!!

    Cons

    When management changed, it went down hill, and the company could care less about keeping their good employee's. During my tenure the company was bought out by 3 different companies, changing names, etc. Sava made no effort to keep their employee's. All the "incentive" programs were in the facilities, not the shared services office. Would not recommend this company for a long term career or investment. Not a loyal company to their employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the employee you have and figure out how to keep them. They are loyal, but Sava is NOT.

    I worked at Sava Senior Care

    Pros

    Good wages. Good co-workers. The residents and their families.

    Cons

    Felt very unappreciated. Management was unqualified & inexperienced which was proven time and time again. Left strictly related to the management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attempt to connect with your staff. Stay professional and lead.

    I worked at Sava Senior Care part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The money was good. The work hours were available. Very little on the job drama. There were a few competent/seasoned nurses who didn't mind answering novice questions.

    Cons

    The administrator is completely incompetent. The DON and ADON seats are like revolving doors. There is rarely a staffed treatment nurse. The majority of the RCA's are lazy.
