      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.

      Pros

      Amazing group of people to work with. Made lots of friends as people were very supportive and helped one another.

      Cons

      So many to explain. All one has to do is look at the high turnover rate. Look at how many Managers/Directors have left. They took all of their expertise and experience with them as well. The HR team has seen the only good people they ever have leave the company so there is no one an employee can speak with who they feel comfortable going to. Good people are leaving for a reason, but this place does not seem to care about keeping them or hiring people and learning from their mistakes. More good people will leave and our workload will increase as a result. Very stressful.

      Pros

      It is very rewarding being able to see the residents and how happy they are. Your job really does help them live better lives. The benefits are pretty good such as tuition reimbursement, PTO, and 401k match.

      Cons

      The people who kiss up to management climb quickly, while the hardworkers stay where they are. This leads to cattiness, mistrust, and high turnover

      Corporate headquarters management out of touch with chain of command and current IT systems. Little staff appreciation. Increases by budget, not effort. Pay and benefits below other businesses. High turnover of mgmnt and support employees. Lots of confusion, chaos. Lots of changes. Lots of mgmnt favorites.
