    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I'm the Associate Care Director at Aegis of Redmond. Not to be confused with Aegis at Marymoor "in" Redmond.(Although all of our communities have the same Integrity and Values). It's been a privilege to work for this company for 5 years now. We have a caring GM that has the gift of seeing our unique talents and utilizing them for good. I have amazing coworkers from all backgrounds demographically and geographically, but united by the companies motto,"We Make People's Lives better." When we go to sleep at night, we do so in peace, knowing, that we love those in our care, with all our hearts everyday. As caregivers we give to others everyday with our service, but in actuality, we get so much more in return from those we care for. Our "Passion" for this work truly comes from within.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a con, but everyday is different because we are in the business of caring for people and meeting them wherever the are from moment to moment. This causes us to be creative, supportive and kind, because you never know what your day is going to look like....but that's the fun of it.

    Advice to Management

    What you're doing is working. You set the standard of loving people. Our Home office at the top, all the way to everyone of us on the front lines, are supportive caring people, which causes a wonderful "Ripple Effect."

    Pros

    Love the culture of compassion and the dedication to making a Wow experience for residents part of the daily tasks. It allows us to be really creative and the joy on the faces of the seniors is amazing. Benefits are solid and I work with people who really care.

    Cons

    New communities are being in built in Seattle and the Eastside and California. Public transportation makes working there a bit easier, but parking can be a little tough in some locations.

    Advice to Management

    none

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The culture. I paired up with my General Manager for our introductory get-to-know-you exercise and part of what he told me was "I love people. I finally have a job where loving people is okay." I have never felt so empowered and supported as I do at Aegis.

    I have been in SO many organizations with inspirational mission statements and execution... not so much. Aegis walks the talk.

    Aegis supports employees' growth. Management actively seeks ways to let employees learn and advance.

    Excellent resident care ratios allow us to provide the best care to residents without cutting corners.

    My coworkers are just amazing. Caring, smart, supportive and sharing. I'm already learning some Amharic. It's nurturing to be with a group of people who all care deeply about the work we do together.

    Gourmet meals for $1.

    Gorgeous environment. Aesthetically beautiful, spacious, and immaculate community.

    Management is funny, kind, supportive.

    Cons

    I had to wrack my brain to try to find the cons. I can think of only this: if I don't succeed at Aegis, it is all down to me. Aegis is giving me total support at all levels to lead my dream of loving service.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop doing what you are doing. Sending home office bigwigs to teach at Aegis Academy made me feel valued and respected. The focus on the resident, quality improvement and the "inverse pyramid" servant leader model is so inspiring.

    Pros

    Good industry to be in at this time
    $1 meal
    More interesting things going on comparing with typical office environment
    Most people choose to work here because they care

    Cons

    I wouldn't say it's a bad company but if you think it's the best company to work for just based on the good reviews here, you may be disappointed. Remember the company has a corporate office and many communities. Your work environment and experience can vary significantly by the community and the leadership there. Some are excellent but some deserve one star. While it is indeed meaningful work, keep in mind this is a for profit company and making money is the priority, not necessarily employees or residents. Keep your eyes open before you jump onboard.

    Advice to Management

    Be alerted if a community has unusually high turnover. It's costly, but more importantly, it hurts the morale, reputation, and makes you lose some very good employees. Focus too much on profit, you will lose your good employees and lose money in the long run. Focus on your employees, you will gain their hearts and the profit eventually.
