    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Full benefits including long term care insurance, no pension but there is a 401 K with a small company match

    Cons

    This company is metrics crazy and has created many layers of management to monitor them; it is very stressful and distracting to the job of selling a valuable service to families; must work evenings, holidays and weekends; there is no career path for advisors

    Advice to Management

    focus on a few KPI's and let your advisors sell

    Pros

    Good work/life balance.
    Organization continues to grow with consumer needs.
    Beautiful view from corporate office

    Cons

    After working for APFM for 3 1/2 years my supervisor did not acknowledge my last day. I gave a lot of myself to the company and position, so this was hurtful. This speaks volumes about my supervisor.
    Cut bonuses this year.

    Advice to Management

    Require annual Manager training.
    Top leadership should spend more time in the field with employees to better understand what is really happening and needed.

    Pros

    A Place For Mom is a fast growing company that dances the balance between acting like a startup that needs to grow fast as well as a real 'company' that realizes that growth is just hype if it doesn't lead to profit. The company is also working hard to develop a culture that you'd want to be part of - one that treats everyone well.

    Cons

    With as many opportunities in front of it as there are, sometimes the company tries to do too much at the same time leading all projects taking longer than you'd expect.

    Advice to Management

    Thing through the cultural differences between remote, Seattle and Austin locations.
