No opinion of CEO

Pros

At the Summit employees are treated with respect. I can get extra hours by working in different departments and I feel like my feedback is appreciated by management. It is a very relaxed environment but still professional.

Cons

Health benefits are offered only to full-time employees. The full-time positions are limited and new positions do not open often.

Advice to Management

My only advice would be to offer a better benefits package to part-time employees. Other than that I am extremely happy with the management there.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Pay is good. Non-management staff tries hard to do a good job.

    Cons

    Orientation and staff training is virtually non-existent. Staff are doing tasks for which they are not educated--eg. non-RN's expected to perform RN functions. Serious under-staffing issues making good patient care difficult, if not impossible, for the hard-working caregivers who really want to do a good job. Management does not listen to employees or families of residents.

    Advice to Management

    You may think that by understaffing and treating employees poorly you are helping your "bottom line." Be advised: when you lose residents because of poor management practices, your bottom line will suffer.

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling to accommodate your personal life or further education. Opportunity to advance in the company as they promote from within first before hiring from outside.

    Cons

    Poor training, under staffed, under qualified staff caring for residents. Have staff performing job functions out of the range of their abilities (example : med techs performing RN duties).

    Advice to Management

    Need to send new staff that need to be trained to an actual class instead of training with under-qualified staff..... creates a domino effect of under-qualified staff by training each other which results in lack of good resident care. Need more staff on duty instead of running a skeleton crew constantly.
