    Pros

    Easy to get promoted because nobody wants to be in management with this company.

    Does NOT pay out bonuses to management. Even with a deficiency free survey they will still not pay. Scandalous company that does not care about their employees.

    Pay out the claimed bonus structure available. Take care of the employees who do their part.

    Pros

    Friendly co-workers who will help you out whenever you need

    Cons

    I've been one CNA to 20 patients at this place. One nurse to 35 patients. Dangerously understaffed

    Advice to Management

    Fix your dangerous staffing. Spending the money on extra employees will mean less fines from the state--why don't you understand this concept?

    I have been working at Extendicare part-time

    Pros

    The residents are awesome. The fact thats its not LTC is a plus

    Cons

    Management is HORRIBLE! The nurses are over bearing and pure LAZY! The treat the aides like dirt. When most of them only have their ADN. Will watch one aide run around non stop while they point to where the light is going off at. Smokers get more breaks than non smokers. Speaking of breaks better a take a lunch. Filling out a missed pumch form is worthless they will find every excuse not to pay you.

    Advice to Management

    Get on your lazy nurses to help out the aides! Instead of having fancy dinners for the new owners.
