    I have been working at American Senior Communities full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good work environment. Depends a lot on how your manager is though. My nursing home has a good team and DOT

    Cons

    CEU rules keep changing, wish taking PTOs was easier


  2. "Mediocre"

    Pros

    Great coworkers including therapist and nursing team.

    Cons

    Company is only out to make a dollar. They don’t care about there employees and especially don’t care about you or your clinical judgement. Only about meeting your minutes and getting in assessments. No raises, poor pay. No type of sick days only points and more points. God forbid you get the dreaded flu or have sick children. Even if you make up a day for what’s missed you still get points.

    Advice to Management

    Put some of your focus on your employees and not just what’s going in to your pockets. You get bonuses and raises I am sure, but what about the therapist who are seeing the patients and getting the minutes?

    I have been working at American Senior Communities full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The residents by far. Once you get to know them, they are so much fun to learn about and chat with while giving care! Also, the bonds you form with other staff. You really get to know these people while you are always working with them.

    Cons

    Management. There are so many fishy things that go on between management staff that don’t reflect well on floor staff. Not to mention, managers will badmouth other managers and staff they don’t like, to anyone that walks in the door! ED refuses to pay anyone more unless they threaten to quit. Then they let the good ones quit and do everything they can to keep others just because of a title or position they don’t want to fill. Staff incentives and morale boosters are few and far between. There just isn’t enough staff. And there won’t be until someone makes it worth working there. One nurse and one aide for 30 residents isn’t right, and management doesn’t care. As long as they are bringing people in to raise census they could care less about what happens to them after they come in the door. Long term care shouldn’t be a numbers game.

    Advice to Management

    If you could even pretend that you actually care what happens in your building, it would make a huge difference.
