    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.

    Advice to Management

    Try to learn and improve. The turnover rate is not just about compensation. There are many other factors that can be improved to help keep people here.

    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.

    I have been working at Erickson Living

    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

    Advice to Management

    Judge people by the quality of their work.

    I worked at Erickson Living

    Pros

    Attractive setting. Enjoyed the elderly residents.

    Cons

    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.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the 21st century. Allow flexibility in benefits. Hear new ideas.

    Pros

    Good people, and environment. Modern facilities and equipment.

    Cons

    Toxic leadership, and a high turnover rate. Low pay. Many managers do not have experience.

    Advice to Management

    calm down, and pay enough to attract people with better skills. Focus more on resident wellness, and less on profit.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Erickson Living part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Coworkers are like family, double pay on holidays, scholarship opportunity, build valued relationships with residents

    Cons

    Micromanagement, high turnover rate with management and other departments, low pay, stress of pleasing managers outweighs benefits of job, school is not a concern of management, managers and supervisors never on the same page about anything

    Advice to Management

    Employees are part time students - not full time adults, so school will almost always come before Ashby Ponds, improve communication between managers, do not treat workers based on race, do not gossip about employees in front of other workers
