    Pros

    Salary wasn't bad for expectations.

    Cons

    Upper management is uneducated and lacks basic and definitely advance experience to not even come close to measuring up the the industry's leaders; poor leadership and they are learning at the expense of good workers. Owner does nit believe in his own values and mission.

    Advice to Management

    Hire qualified people to oversee the business: make better business and finance decisions; offer a more attractive paid time off package: hire some "REAL" corporate people not just your uneducated friends who know nothing about the business.

    Senior management is transparent. We always know the goal at hand.

    Company is lean and mean so there is some downside to this

    Keep trying to innovate.

    I have been working at Weston Group full-time

    Pros

    Flexibility and supportive therapists... Those are the ONLY pros

    Cons

    Poor management which impacts all staff negatively, poor communication between staff and management, little support offered to employees, pressure to commit unethical acts to increase caseload and profit, leadership is nonexistent, higher ups, hr, and administration are extremely disorganized which is evident as it impacts all employees, very few rights practiced in terms of ethics and morals; often times therapists feel that practices are unethical and/or mistreatment between management and employees or employees and employees yet nothing is done by authority figures. I would not recommend anyone work for this company, support from management is nonexistent and this is very evident from therapists to housekeeping staff. It negatively impacts everyone.

    I worked at Weston Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility. No other pro to speak of. Run

    Cons

    Lowest pay scale in the area. No training and Weston will terminate on a whim.

    Advice to Management

    Weston Senior Living Personal care homes. When you purchase a facility actually put money into the building. Do not refuse to remodel the facility. When census is low do not blame the administrator. How can an administrator sell a facility that is run down and dirty. Treat your staff with respect and do not terminate your staff just because you failed to train them. Put people in charge on the corporate level that actually know what they are doing. And not insult and belittle the staff. Give your employees raises. Most employees have been working for many years with out a raise. MR Weston stop purchasing personal care homes and put money into the building you already own. Stop terminating good employees because they are doing their job and following State guidelines. Remember how you treat your workers reflects on your business. This is why all your personal care homes have low census. On provisional licenses. Word of mouth travels fast. Any one reading this. Do not work for this company. You will be sorry. And do not admit a family member in any of his buildings. Run. Weston is termination happy.

    I worked at Weston Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff at the facility were hard working capable, caring staff who loved their residents.

    Cons

    The top management are useless. Their questionable practices, reducing wages by a third, firing entire staff and leaving two people to do a job formerly done by 10, and doing it in an unkind manner, instills a very unsettling feeling in both staff and residents alike. The food has gone from wonderful, when it was owned by a different company, to extremely poor, now that they are in charge. They have women in top leadership who have no experience in corporations, so they make their own rules and skirt legalities, and are making unlawful choices. They care nothing about anything or anyone, except the owner's latest electric car.

    Advice to Management

    You cannot go far treating residents and staff as chattel. Anyone who has any degree of respectability cannot continue to work for this organization. They don't care about anything but money. There is no culture whatsoever once Weston took over this facility. They should be ashamed.

    I have been working at Weston Group full-time

    Pros

    Great people in the field that truly want to do their best.

    Cons

    Leadership that lacks vision and direction, angry and struggling to survive and taking desperate measures to do so. Full time staff hours are routinely cut to the minimum to meet productivity goals. Pay cuts, and other benefits lost. There does not seem to be a strategic plan to grow and evolve to meet today's market demands, so competitors are swooping in and taking full advantage of this. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Better communication that is meaningful and purposeful. Start planning for the future instead of laboring over the past. You can't fix the past, you can only learn from it and build a stronger future. Otherwise, there won't be a future.

    Pros

    Set your own schedule, treatments as short or as long as you need, no micromanagement, updated with new electronic medical records for ease of communication.

    Cons

    Medicare changes decreasing workload some-not a Weston Group issue but since we serve mostly elderly it does affect us.

    Advice to Management

    Support the good staff with rewards for good performance and high productivity.

    I have been working at Weston Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    when starting I was told that I need to build a caseload, which managent did assist me in doing. not complaints there . i was told that I would get my hours in which case i have been able to get 32 so far to meet the benefit requirement

    Cons

    im not happy with the discrepencies in the paperwork. i work at 2 facilities, and one is comp paperwork, the other is hand written and havent rolled over yet. its very confusing to regear and do things differently day by day. there should be more consistency in all buildings. management is supportive but far away. within the 1st work of starting they increased the productivity standard and stated that if productivity wasnt achieved then they would start writing therapists up, which to me is very micromanagerial. theres only 1 comp in the building, for a staff of 4 and thats mini laptop and keyboard is very small. new hires are left to fend for themselves, and learn job functions on their own. therapists have to basically treat, finish all doc, enter time daily by their limit, stay productive or ge written up, complete and correct all monthly billing, finish all verifications and enter on paper, to me thats herrondous for an 8 hr day. they need to SIMPLIFY a therapists job and eliminate red tape with BILLING!!! make a job easy not difficult!

    Advice to Management

    QUIT mocromanaging and threatening. getting written up is never a solution. thats simply micromanaging coming from someone with a management degree.
