    Pros

    Love LOVE LOVe the patient population I work with

    Cons

    Staffing--don't understand the "mindset" of those who think it is "ok" to just come to work when you want or not show up....this is not "fast food" we are dealing with PEOPLE.:(

    Advice to Management

    Fire MORE...but I DO understand that good help is hard to find---would just like more of a ZERO tolerance policy.

    Pros

    The most ethical and law abiding company I have ever worked for. There is no gray area. It is black and white. This keeps us out of trouble and protects the professional licenses of so many of the employees. The PTO plan is beyond generous, compensating for sick and vacation. Pay is always competitive and market adjustments are made when necessary. I can speak only for my own regional upper management in California, and feel they are supportive.

    Cons

    It is a competitive market and in a market saturated with competitors, we need more localized strategies. We need less of "you can do it" and more of "this is how we can help you do it". PerDiem / PRN Staff are not offered benefits and it makes it difficult to attract. Need something other than competitive wages to offer them.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in local markets. The company has great ethics and mission. Help local markets that are saturated with strategic planning, not just setting expectations and expect results. Invest more in other benefits to retain employees.

    I have been working at HCR ManorCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have worked for HCR ManorCare for 3 .5 years and I can honestly say I work for a company with integrity. Not only do I work with the staff at my agency there is always a helping hand when needed from other offices when needed. I would recommend HCR ManorCare/ Heartland Hospice to anyone looking to make a career change this is the employer to consider.

    Cons

    Insurance options and out of pocket cost

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the support of your line employees

    I worked at HCR ManorCare part-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ample opportunity to work a lot of hours, lots of room for schedule flexibility, multiple educational opportunities within the company

    Cons

    Poor communication from top down, higher corporate tends to give the impression that lower employees are disposable, you have to be a huge self advocate and not easily discouraged

    Advice to Management

    Be mindful of direct care workers-they likely know more than you give them credit for.
    Work on customer service from the inside out-remembering that building employees are corporate customers in the same way that residents and their families are building customers

    Pros

    The patient care and nursing staff is unbelievable. You see people going out of their way throughout the busiest times. This is job can be very easy if you are well experienced, otherwise they are all about training. The staff is friendly, and they will go out of your way to make sure you are doing the right thing. The management is friendly, although if you are breaking a rule, such as on your phone, they will write you up. They are very strict within those guidelines.

    Cons

    The staffing is short most of the time. They do try their absolute best to fill in positions, but sometimes it is not enough.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people that are truly capable of doing their job.

    very nice and helpful coworkers. the med nurses here work as a team. supervisers are great.

    Advice to Management

    stop pinching pennies and hire/schedule adequate amount of nurses. it is so unsafe for the patients.

    Pros

    Nice people and having the ability to help the community

    Cons

    Moving up in the company and applying to move up was a waste of time. I applied to the position only to find out it had been filled.

    Advice to Management

    Post jobs and take them down in a timely matter.
