    Pros

    Values-based company at bottom of a growth curve. We help people live better lives!

    24-hour operation means you can never have an event for all employees at the same time (picnic, etc.)

    Don't overvalue outside experience. You have a wealth of talent in the organization

    I have been working at Erickson Living part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Typically flexible.
    -Decent pay.(Minimum wage, now $9.25 an hour.)

    Cons

    -Management is very self-centered, it's "their way or the high-way."
    -Doesn't encourage individualism.
    -Doesn't punish those who refuse to work or apply themselves fully, willing to overwork their good employees to catch up the slack.
    -No room for advancing, closest you'll get is to another area of the same kitchen.
    -No communication amongst the teams, I'm often tasked with finding out what's going on myself.
    -Not structured, no sense of "strong leadership."

    Advice to Management

    I've been an employee at Charlestown since March 2015, and I can't help but feel pity for how terrible the job as gotten. I currently do Utility Work, and it honestly feels like I'm on the bottom of the oil drum in regards to being cared about. It's demoralizing and I can understand why everyone hates doing the Utility Work now. So my one bit of advice, to the management team, is to listen to your workers. We aren't crazy, we're human.

    Pros

    Nice residents, great experience, nice co workers, great environment, parties for the staff, raises after a year of working there

    Cons

    Very tough learning environment, you have to be fast, balance a tray, tough supervisors, don't break anything or you will have to take it out of your paycheck

    Advice to Management

    Tell the supervisors to be easier on the new people who come and work for them

    I worked at Erickson Living full-time

    Pros

    For the most part, there are many members who are great human beings and made this place fun. They were supportive and helping.

    Cons

    Many people quit. Expectation was to work long hours. Only half the people in HR seemed to care and that person left. Low salary.

    Advice to Management

    People keep leaving for a reason. Increase the pay yes, but make this place a welcoming environment.
