    I have been working at Ensign Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working for a organization that believes in their core values. Here it is more than just words it’s felt in the facilities.

    Cons

    None at this point. The job requires hard work but is fulfilling. It has surpassed my expectations. The team work is amazing.

    I have been working at Ensign Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It provides medical and dental benefits and paid major holidays

    Cons

    I cannot think of any at this moment.

    Advice to Management

    I think the hourly rate for CNA is a bit low.

    Pros

    Great team work! The people in the St.. George, Hildale, And Cedar offices go over the top for employees. Benefits for full time employees and HSA available.

    Cons

    Low pay. Home health is hard and unpredictable. We have difficulty getting funds from the state...guess they would rather have people in hospitals than in their homes.

    I worked at Ensign Group (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people, flexibility, great back-up support

    Cons

    Will sell you on their brand of "culture" but once you are on board, that "culture" seems to dissipate over time.

    Advice to Management

    Please value your employees who gave years of their life to help grow with the company. Explain the details of your "flexibility" rule and not just under-value talents and personnel.

    Pros

    Working with the elderly and the employees at the facility

    Working with the corporate office, they say they are anti-corporate but they just like any other organization.

    Pros

    If management likes you, you are in a good spot. Flexibility in some departments.

    Cons

    No work from home. No room for growth or advancement. No processes or concrete guidance for business operations. Almost 20 years old and still flailing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring from your "network", create realistic plan for growth for people.

    Invest more time and money into hiring quality staff!

    Pros

    The Ensign Experience provides an awesome opportunity to exercise your entrepreneurial spirit in an environment that demands accountability and responsibility. I am pushed to be better every day.

    Cons

    The job does not come with a cook book or how to manual.

    Advice to Management

    The opportunity for ownership means so much to so many. THANK YOU.

    I worked at Ensign Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Enjoy working and helping the residents.

    Cons

    The company has a high turn over rate, from administration to maintenance. Management has no sense of core values and no respect for their employees. Under staffed and under paid.

    Advice to Management

    Burning bridges makes for bad PR. Word of mouth is everything and the representation of a company will stand true to its name

    I have been working at Ensign Group part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Most of the residents are so great. The facility is pretty on the inside. Most coworkers are kind and helpful. Management fosters an environment to build up coworkers and to be kind and helpful to each other. I see coworkers being so kind to residents, it melts my heart.

    Cons

    No job is perfect, there is always a downside to every job, with that said, I think the only Cons would be that some coworkers don't take as much pride in their jobs as others. I think my standards are higher than others but it seems management has been weeding out the lazy people and replacing them with good people. There are only one or two left.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation is adequate, but health benefits are not great. However, this is probably due to the federal health care mess and not this particular company.
