    Pros

    Lovely campus
    Close to stores
    Very nice residents
    Coworkers can become friends

    Cons

    Terrible management of SNF & ALF neighborhoods by cliques of paranoid and incompetant upper administraton. Favoritism runs rampant. The nursing administration openly treated nurses as her enemy and made up policies to get rid of staff with writeups. Many people didn't even know there were fictitious write-ups in their files until it was too late. Poor nursing education - blank papers frequently handed out and staff told to sign. One manager was found giving fulltime jobs to brand new employees instead of allowing all qualified employees to apply. HR was notified and it stopped for a few months and then started up again. HR routinely refused to address complaints and usually notified administration with the details and reporting employee's name. Compliance line was not confidential and retribution is guaranteed.
    The ALF families complain that they don't get calls back from the manager. Many of the ALF residents can't safely manage in there but don't get moved to a higher level of care. The nurses don't know the regulations and the med techs are not supervised.
    The SNF neighborhoods have many blanks on the MARs and TARs. Multiple meds don't get handed out and treatments are SIGNED for and not done. Male nurses are given preferential assignments and are not held accountable for poor care.
    Controlled drugs have disappeared on several occasions and reports were not made to local authorities or DEA.

    Advice to Management

    Investigate the high turnover of staff at Mountainview Gardens and have the executive director talk to the employees, one on one.

    Pros

    Wait staff managers are pretty nice
    Co-workers are nice

    Cons

    The company should do more to promote/help recent grads move up in the company, in addition to giving a scholarship. The scholarship should be offered to everyone, not just people who started working there in their junior year of high school.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate makes bold changes with their head in the clouds

    "Middle Management Position"

    I worked at Cedar Crest Village full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    5 Minute commute from home.
    Nice landscaping.
    Wonderful residents.

    Cons

    I held a middle management position for 3.5 yrs. I was used as the clean up manger to rid the department of dead weight. While there I improved training of new staff members and met budget guidelines. I was even asked to provide feedback on corporate computer programs. I received great reviews at each work anniversary and our department, Home Support, was recognized by corporate leaders for outstanding performance in scheduling and consistency. I went from golden child with great reviews to "failed employee" in two point five seconds when budget cuts came around.
    From glowing reviews to action plan with no verbal warnings, no written warnings, and weekly meetings in Human Resources. The most astonishing part of the whole last 8 months of my employment all the while I was being scrutinized and set up to fail, I was completing the role of office manager and weekend scheduler, technically covering the workflow of 2 employees.
    The same week that I was let go, several other middle/upper managers were also let go. Cedar Crest does not care about it's employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees with respect.
    Follow the correct process of verbal and written warnings before you permanently tarnish an reliable and caring employee's work record, if and only if the employee truly deserves it.
    Be honest during budget cuts, give the employee the opportunity to transfer to another property instead tarnishing their work record.
    A note to HR leaders and workers, when you see and are asked to participate in setting a fellow employee up to fail, have some self respect and speak up for the employee being raked over the coals.

    Pros

    Co workers can end up being your friends
    Pretty landscaping
    Benefits are okay
    Close to Target
    Food is good

    Cons

    Inconsistency in rules and directions

    Lack of communication

    Management hide and avoid any real issues and get away with murder

    Rules such as no cell phones use, apply only to non favored employees.

    You can be taught one way of doing something and then it's changed the week after.

    Employees are written up for the most ridiculous things.

    If you defend yourself or have an opinion, you're most likely to be written up.

    Employees are psychologically pushed out of position in a slow and calculated manner in hope that you will quit.

    Gossip is rampant and managers sweet talk favorite employees to obtain information about employees

    Watch your back and trust no one in management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop having favorites and stay consistent with rules and directions. Stop back tracking.
