I worked at Extendicare full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Employees care about the residents.

Cons

Management is lazy, cares only about profit, and screws over CNAs

Advice to Management

You should care more about the residents quality of life, then filing each bed. Put enough CNAs so they are not being overworked to the extent of getting injured all the time

    Pros

    The people, my coworkers, are great.
    The work-life balance is outstanding, and the managers are reasonable. I have never felt pressured to work off the clock.

    Cons

    People are promoted based upon tenure, not based upon abilities. I have seen many unqualified employees be promoted into a position because they had been there longer, when a more-qualified candidate remained in their current, unsatisfying position.
    Also, when it comes time to implement a new project or system, the entire process, including potential failures, is not thought through. Senior management tends to put in half of the work that they should, in the interest of getting a project or system implemented asap.

    Advice to Management

    When a position opens, take the time to assess the skills of the internal candidates, and promote someone who is the best fit for the position, not someone who has been there the longest.
    And when implementing a new project or system, don't be in such a rush to get it implemented; make sure you do it right the first time!!

    Pros

    Various things are done throughout the year and/or offered to show appreciation to employees for all of their hard work and loyalty.

    Cons

    Not a lot of room for advancement. No emphasis is placed on career developement for the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Put greater emphasis on developing your employees.
