Pros

The people that do the work - the staff nurses, orderlies, dietary, and my peers, on up to and including the facility Administrator. They are the only thing that is keeping this company going.

Cons

Just to cite come high level examples:

- Everyone at work was being worked long hours (12+) for the same pay with no overtime.
- Senior staff was provided with cell phones, and told to be available every weekend, and phony calls were made by upper management to make sure they were "obeying" this new law.
- Individual vacations have been revoked by upper management.
- TOTALLY agree with reviewer that said that complete and total lack of respect rules above the Admin level... it gets VERY personal and there is nothing you can do about it if you value your job.
- Again agree with reviewer that said that there was "Systematic removal of capable senior staff." I was one of them. It doesn't matter if you have been there for 3 years or 30 years, whether you have been doing an adequate job, or an exceptional one. They build a false case against you, then push you the door out citing blatant lies about your competence.

These people have no clue as to how to run a nursing home company. The only thing they care about is how much they bring in and make no apology of who they roll over, burn out, or what lives are ruined in the process.

Advice to Management

I have nothing to say to these individuals; they wouldn't listen to me then, they won't now.

    Pros

    Extendicare has excellent Paid time off as well as some good benefits. There are great opportunities for advancement, and a great working atmosphere.

    Cons

    Once you reach of certain level in the hierarchy there isn't many options for advancement. I have gotten a couple promotions since I started 3 years ago but there isn't any more opportunities that I can see in the future. Also, the health benefits have huge deductibles.
