    Great employees but other than that no real advantage for working for this company.

    "Confusion and Disappointment"

    Current Employee - Management Team in Bellingham, WA
    Current Employee - Management Team in Bellingham, WA

    I have been working at Avamere Family of Companies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers who ignore the lack of recognition and respect and still take awesome care of our residents as a team.

    Cons

    The company has lofty core values but our upper and regional management do not base their actions on these values. We have many quality initiatives with shiny promotional materials but no practical training or guidance and no follow up. We lack definitive policies and procedures and we receive conflicting instructions at every turn. In our facility we have a lack of respect for all employees. The DNS and ED see everyone as subordinate.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and appreciate everyone who serves our residents. Make yourselves aware of the effort each team member puts into their work. Treat all employees as peers, not pawns.

    Pros

    There are zero pros for working for this corporation

    Corporation takeover of basic needs of senior citizens and other compromised patients. The priority of this corporation is profit; not good patient care.

    Pros

    zero pros and many cons

    Cons

    Unorganized, no support from upper management, lack of communication, all the RCMs are only out to save their selves, CNAs and all nursing staff are treated very poorly by RCMs, DNS, and administration. Employees come and go out of the facility you do not even have a chance to remember their name. Employees who are terrible at their job and call off the most for some reason get treated better then the staff that works hard, works short staff and never call off or show up late. They have a Environmental Aid on who does CNA work which she is not permitted to due but they get her to. They paint rooms with residence still in them with cheap paint that has harsh fumes in them. Nurses will not lift a finger to help the aids and instead treat them like their person slave.

    Advice to Management

    open your eyes, your destroying the company and peoples spirits.

    Pros

    Food fairly good, daytime receptionist week days is very nice and helpful.

    Cons

    Avamere seems to keep the worst employees and allows the good ones to slip away.
    Too many druggies and not educated is what they want but place them in positions that are beyond the simplistic mind and common sense. Management the worst. .

    Advice to Management

    Start over, from scratch and do it right this time.

    Pros

    Coworkers are very helpful and easy to work with. The facility looks nice. I don't have anything else good to say....

    Cons

    Staffing shortage, scheduling changes on short notice with no communication, traning was cut in half of what I told I would get, never have the right supplies. This company runs at the bare minimum staff, and there is absolutely no communication between floor staff and upper management. I would highly recommend not working here.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what your floor workers are saying.
