    Small Enough company to stand out

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsSmall Company so hard work is noticed. The residents were wonderful. Learned a lot

    ConsUnorganized at times. Can get dropped into the deep end of the pool without a lot of support. Senior management run to thin, so not much support at the community level unless there is a crisis. Pay compensation is not the best.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMake sure not to run the Regional's ragged. Be more organized before dumping a bunch of new systems on the communities. Continue having a genuine caring for the residents.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Chaotic systems, overworked staff, underpaid staff, under funded budgets

    Management (Former Employee) Morgan Hill, CA

    ProsBeautiful place to work, one meal a day included, great colleagues, great residents, fulfilling industry.

    ConsEvery department's budget is under funded. Every manager is overworked and underpaid. Most departments are understaffed. Leadership does not know what they are doing, poor decision making, poor HR department, poor training, terrible computer systems, most managers do not know how to use computers fully, lots of turn over. Too many promises made to prospective residents that cannot be delivered.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPay higher salaries. Fund budgets with more staff and more money. Create a talent development department. Train and mentor new hire staff. Write procedure manuals for each department. Select a computer system that is integrated and creates all the reports you need so managers do not spend valuable time manually entering data into FIVE DIFFERENT PLACES! Hire clerical staff to support managers. Treat front desk team as the valued, skilled people they are by including them in routine staff meetings.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Could be great with if the corporate office works more collaboratively with the communities.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsThe community itself has a good vibe, warm and home-like.

    ConsThe left hand does not know what the right hand is doing at the corporate level. It's a smaller company that is going through growing pains. Low wages and mediocre benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake the time to communicate and introduce change methodically. Go to a community and see what a typical day is like so you know what the staff is up against. Get feedback from the people handling those day-to-day tasks for residents.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not so supportive to the people below

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsThey are young and growing and have a lot of potential if the right people get in positions of power.

    ConsAs a manager i was forced to lay off good workers in order to pad the companies profit margin.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemember that the people working are the reason you make money not just the customers but those who care for the customers.

    Compass Rose Program Director

    Program Directer (Former Employee)

    ProsSmall enough company that you get to know everyone at corporate.

    ConsNever felt like my best effort was good enough. Everyone needs to
    feel wanted by their employer especially when the job is so demanding.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA little tangible appriciation goes a long way

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Polatics, Not beneficial to the residents

    Upper Management (Current Employee) Morgan Hill, CA

    ProsThe Seniors whom are residents, are some of the best you will ever come accross, and Karen the Livestyles Coordinator at Morgan Hill is AWESOME.

    ConsBecause of the company polatics, the food is not consistant, nor is the product availability for the residents. The menu will say one thing, but another thing will be what is actually served. For the amount of money the residents pay, too little of that is used for the daily food costs.
    Secondly, also because of bedgetary shortfalls, there are not enough hands to get all maitainence issue take care of in a timely mannor.
    Thirdly, training of management staff does not meet the needs of the property. If you hire someone with more skill than the trainers, why have the lesser trained train them.
    For a company that has more than one location, there are no systems in place that would be beneficial to each new location.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe wary of how you treat the residents, if they found out about all the polatics you could lose a lot of great people. Take pride in your employees and give them the propper tools to do their jobs.

    Small Company That Still Has Good Priorities

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCorporate is very accessible if and when you need them. Great opportunity for those new to this level of care. They will take a chance on someone with the right attributes but no direct experience.

    ConsOnly ten communities and little room for advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDon't lose touch with those who make your buildings run

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
