    I have been working at Alden Network full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Every worker here is willing to go the extra mile to provide the best care for all of our residents. We strive to be the best health care facility and we live up to that expectation on a daily basis. If this wasn't a great place to work I wouldn't still be here after 5 years. I love what I do and I want to continue to provide the best care and customer service!

    Cons

    Just like any other job there are going to be more challenging days than others. Teamwork is key and we all work very hard together!

    Pros

    Every member of the team is always willing to go above and beyond to ensure the highest quality of care for our patients. Everyone works together to get the job done and is always willing to help. We have a wonderful tuition reimbursement program that is offered to all employees. We have a referral bonus program for CNA's and RN's. I've been with this company for almost 5 years and if it wasn't a great place to work, I wouldn't still be here.

    I worked at Alden Network full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I had the pleasure to work with some great people, which I really miss. We all helped each other out, our job titles didn't limit what we did for each other to make the facility successful.
    Always enjoyed the free lunch.

    Cons

    My biggest beef was no direct deposit.

    Advice to Management

    I believe in trickle down theory, if you hire great people it will affect everyone, employees as well as patients

    Pros

    This is a wonderful company to work for. The leadership team in my building is very supportive and fun to work with. I have some of the best CNAs that work my unit. There is opportunities for advancement and the pay is MUCH better than other facilities in our area.

    Cons

    We have open positions which can be challenging, but we pull together and get the job done. Management will help with feeding, answering lights etc. My DON will even put in orders and help with admissions. I just wish we could get all the positions filled.
