Pros

Great on site staff in all departments.

Cons

Micro managed to the extreme. Terrible inservice training program. No positivity from the corporate level. Money over people. Top heavy.

Advice to Management

You all need to "bone up" on employee/employer relations. I have seen the moral of the facility I'm employed with steadily decline picking up speed over the last few years with no end in sight.

    I worked at Extendicare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Many excellent, caring employees who want to do the right thing. Good compensation levels.

    Cons

    Management talks but doesn't walk employee empowerment outside of corporate offices. Regional and Area operations are fiefdoms. Penny wise, pound foolish when it comes to investing in properties, programs, people. Many managers are personality vs. performance driven. Clinical services are inconsistent, with poorly implemented ongoing training. Overall culture that doesn't value training or education outside a narrow focus.

    Advice to Management

    FInd ways to hear your employees without the filters of area and regional managers. Invest - with real dollars - in your workforce.

    Disapproves of CEO

    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    - Individual vacations have been revoked by upper management.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.
