    Pros

    Competitive salary. Excellent team members in my department. Lots of neat computer stuff to play with. No micromanagers to deal with.

    Cons

    Company is exiting direct patient care business. Downsizing droids like me. Obviously not a place to consider if you are seeking employment.

    I have been working at Golden Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good - several options to choose from and a lot of additional types to choose from. The people are wonderful and the company as a whole is very community minded.

    Cons

    Wages were great to start but it has been YEARS since any of us at Corporate have received a raise, though we all did receive an 11% cost of living adjustment 2 years ago but if you were salary you only received a lump sum one time payment. And now since Golden Living is about to no longer exist moral is not good at all. There is little to no communication from leadership, especially now. CEO Neil Kurtz did communicate with us quite frequently before the news that we were getting out of the Long Term Care business and is actually a very nice person and well respected - it is the people above him that are not communicating.
