    I worked at Silverado full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of any right now

    Cons

    Very negative, paranoid office atmosphere. They smile and act nice to you, but crucify you behind closed doors. I've never been treated this way in my entire career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You might want to do some exit interviewIingto see what's really going on in the isolated little offices, what is that turnover really about?

    I worked at Silverado full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you have the right supervisor. In the time I was there I had between 4-6 supervisors and only 3 were good. The others didn't understand what leadership really meant.

    Cons

    They don't have established policies, every office runs things differently. They change client rates without letting the entire team know about the changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would recommend that management take a good look at their administrators and ensure they are being fair and conducting themselves in a professional and legal way. They tend to just fire people for no good reason.

    I worked at Silverado full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    San Diego has pretty weather...?

    Cons

    Revolving door. Punitive enviornment. If a family is grieving and complains EVERYONE present is blamed. No recognition for a job well done. Your job may disappear and you will never know what happened. Some people are not paid a living wage (yes, even nurses).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Really consider removing current management and replace with appropriate and positive management who dont have their own array of serious emotional and behavioral problems.

    I worked at Silverado

    Pros

    Autonomy
    Colleagues are great
    Excellent corporate training

    Cons

    Poor local training
    Management had archaic strategies
    Management gossips
    Company seems to lay off or fire people who are over 40 years old
    Management relies on employee to train their replacement prior to being fired or laid off
    Few reviews if any; I was never given a review

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mr. Shook you may want to send in an undercover boss to determine the "real" knowledge level of local managers. In my opinion it is unethical to request an employee to "train" their replacement with no knowledge that they were about to be terminated. I saw this happen in all divisions of the organization including the corporate offices. Unfortunately the few long timers are quite capable of discrediting an employee just prior to termination.
