    I have been working at Erickson Living full-time

    Pros

    For the most part it seems that employees really live the mission "we share our gifts to create a community that celebrates life." it's a friendly environment and the residents are the best part of the job.

    Cons

    The company is growing and it seems corporate makes decisions for the individual communities that don't always make sense. It's starting to feel like corporate is removed from the community side of the business and it puts stress on the front line employees.

    Advice to Management

    be transparent. Let your employees know what's happening.

    I have been working at Erickson Living full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits and employee perks! The rehab team I work with are fun and helpful group of therapists ! If you share your suggestions or ideas , the company actually does want your input! There is room to grow and advance your education.

    Cons

    Departments in the company need to be consistent with following policies. Luckily I work in a good department.
    If you do not have good customer service skills , Do Not bother applying! Customer service is a must!

    Advice to Management

    A person should shadow someone before they are hired! This should be part of the interview process. This change might be helpful with the new hire turnaround. There would be no surprise for new employees once they are on the floors.

    Pros

    great benefits and reasonable pay!

    Cons

    saying there is room for advancement and there is actually none constantly hiring outside of the company and over looking people who have put in valuable years. frequently watch people around me get blamed for poor management decisions they have nothing to do with. people who are there who are lazy and unmotivated get to stay and infect the company with bad habits and practices. Also constantly watching management get switched around, fired, and resign.

    Advice to Management

    Stop asking people to compete task with out all the tools to do it.

    Pros

    Good company to grow, make a difference in the seniors lives and truly service oriented. The company tries to do what's best for the residents. G

    Cons

    New initiatives are not always communicated down to staff members the change will effect the most. Systems and processes antiquated, which puts a strain on staff trying care for residents. Some departments have a challenge with offering competitive salaries. This too puts a strain on current staff and residents. This also creates tension between departments, for there doesn't seem like support is offered during high turnover in dining or continuing care. Everyone has something to say, but action is minimal. Even though a department is struggling to keep residents and staff content. There doesn't seem like the "One Team" attitude materialized.

    Advice to Management

    To push our communities forward one focus this year was supposed to be "One Team". From my perspective that hasn't been happening. We need to revisit this philosophy.
