    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    becomes a family, great benefits, laughter every day. Fun, rewarding work (yes, it can get stressful at times, but the good outweighs the bad). Finally got a great GM! My supervisor is awesome. Caring company. Great Corporate Team from founder, Dwayne Clark all the way down to our regionals.

    Cons

    Can be stressful. I work as a medication care manager so some of my cons have to do with pharmacies, doctors and paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the resident move ins. They very rarely go as they should. ALWAYS a problem with meds and orders.

    Pros

    Great culture to work in.

    Cons

    There are the same cons that you would find in any top of the line work environment be it Microsoft, Amazon, Boeing, etc. A company becomes stale once you slap the word "perfect" onto it.

    Pros

    We just got done with CNA appreciation week where management did something everyday for the staff with a grand finale party yesterday. It was so much fun and that's just one of the ways our managers always show how appreciated we are. Lots of room for growth here as well.

    Cons

    Not a lot of cons.

    Advice to Management

    I'd just say thanks for making each of us feel special and heard.

    I worked at Aegis Living full-time

    Pros

    The Professionalism of the staff and Mgt.

    Cons

    There isn’t any employer match in 401k. Residents can be extremely rude and disrespectful.

    Advice to Management

    When I worked there, there seemed to be a turnover problem. Lots of overtime was needed from staff.

    Pros

    The residents and their families. You tend to get attached to the residents as if they were your own grandparents.

    Cons

    Definitely not in the market for increased compensation to their employees. Local fast food places pay higher than Aegis. They dont give annual pay raises. I'm yet to get one x 3 years. The CEO stresses often, if you want a pay raise, work on being promoted. He failed to mention that you dont always get a pay raise with the promotions you're offered. However, you definitely would get more responsibilities added. Oh and if your resident is constantly pushing his pendant pr hollering out help, and you have to of course constantly go attend to them, most of the time not even realizing they pushed the pendant. Well, the points get added on to the care plan. Who gets that added $1500 a month that they charged the resident....NOT the caregiver who continuously answered the pendant.. that would be Mr. Dwayne Clark. He is compensated for what we are doing. Oh yeah, and that so called promotion....you can only go so far in the community. They dont even pay holiday pay for Memorial Day.. God Bless Aegis, not God Bless America. I bet corporate office is closed and getting holiday pay though. Oh and the nurses at my community didnt even get a bonus for nurses week. That's how ungrateful they are not to even recognize our hard working nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Think about who brought you this far. Think about who is day to day taking care of the residents and actually keeping your company thriving. Dwayne can tip a waitress $3000 but he can't increase his own employees pay because it'll take more from what he takes home. Most of the staff can't work 40 hours and pay rent in the state of Washington without a second job or spouse. Why not pay to keep up with the cost of living? Bonus? What's that?
