    I worked at Aegis Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    With all jobs, you get out what you put in. But Aegis of Issaquah was a little different. I worked at Aegis for a year, having never worked in care before and found all the resources I needed to help me succeed in my new role. I had the encouragement and support of co-workers, supervisors, and managers who would drop anything to come assist me when I needed it most. In this environment, I found it easy to go above and beyond in my duties because of the support I had from so many others. What I got out of working here was more than a team, it was a family. I can think of so many people, in all positions, who wanted to see me succeed and help me along in whatever capacity they could. At Aegis, I did my best work because I was given so much it became easy to pass that along to my residents. If you work reliably and do your best there is plenty of room for upward movement within the company. Oh, and donuts every Friday :)

    Cons

    This is a high-speed work environment. The pace is dictated by the resident's daily routines. You will wake up early or stay up late. You may have to help move residents physically and if you aren't careful or follow procedure can end up hurt. There is a national shortage of CNA's, so you may be asked to work more shifts than you prefer. These aren't issues that are specific to Issaquah, but are standard when it comes to CNA work.

    I worked at Aegis Living (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Close to home. Nice people.

    Cons

    Cheap slave labor. 4 years to get inconsequential raise. Finally had to give up on them. Also overlooked 3 times for advancement. I even went to a fake group interview and they hired someone else that didn’t even attend the interview, so wrong on many levels. To use their vernacular, “below the line”.

    Advice to Management

    Be real

    Pros

    Great leadership support from the General Manager and Home Office.

    Cons

    The salary for the staff is very low considering the cost of living in San Francisco.

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing the rate for the staff. The hiring process has been challenging due to the rate and cost of living in San Francisco.
