I have been working at Aegis Living full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Management truly cares about our employees, and when our employees are supported, loved, and fulfilled, they can provide heartfelt care to our residents. I see room to advance within the company and have mentors who support my personal and professional growth and development. I am well compensated and shown tokens of appreciation for my extra efforts. Aegis encourages new ideas that could enhance the lives of our employees, residents, families, and surrounding community. We hire quality people, making it a joy to come to work everyday. I go home and share with people in my life how much I love my job, which I've learned is very rare!

Cons

I have the experience that our corporate employees and upper management are very removed from the daily, on-the-court experience of working with our residents. I would love to see them more involved in the Communities to guide how they create our programs.

Advice to Management

I invite Dwayne to spend some time in the Communities getting to know the staff, who are the agents of his great vision. Most people have never met him, or even seen him, beyond the family picture on the wall. He's an inspiring man and it would make a difference to connect with him.

Consider offering the Landmark Forum to our employees as a great gift for people's personal and professional lives. Much of our upper management has participated in Landmark courses and have gotten great value for themselves. Also, much of our Aegis culture is steeped in the principles of Landmark education. It could really inspire effective leadership, integrity, self-expression, fulfillment at work, and significantly reduce turnover. Many companies offer the Landmark Forum to their employees, such as Panda Express and Lululemon, and experience significant growth, employee satisfaction, and a rich company culture. I have done it and invited several members of my team to participate as well; they have gotten great value personally and have astronomically improved our performance and creativity as a team here at Bellevue!

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time

    Pros

    Working with wonderful residents and families

    Cons

    Horrible pay and benefits. Most expensive health insurance and deductibles I've ever had. The pay structure for our nurse sides and nurses is very low. A lot of turn over and job openings all the time. All I hear is grumbling a.

    Advice to Management

    Regional nurses and others don't offer support. The organization is fragmented. I've worked at difference communities and they all run so differently, makes me feel sorry for residents in the cheaper facilities. They don't have the same opportunities or safe environments as others. A shame. I've heard Sunrise is better but I don't know.

    I have been working at Aegis Living (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have now worked for the company for 2 and half years. I can honestly say it is the best company I have ever been a part of. The company took its time to train me, more than any company I have ever worked for. I can see many opportunities to grow as well. The company treats it's employees and staff exceptionally well and the caring for us an employees and our residents is absolutely authentic.

    Cons

    We must continue to work on Care Manager Pay. It is a difficult industry- fundamentally the system is broken, Aegis does a fantastic job inside of a system that needs fixing.

    Advice to Management

    Matching 401k is the one benefit I know most of us would love to see.
