    I worked at Kisco Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Home office review: this is a company that really talks the talk, and walks the walk. The best part of the company is the people. Everyone truly cares about what they are doing and why they are doing it. At the end of the day it is really nice to know that you are making a difference in people's lives and that the work that you do is meaningful.

    Cons

    I don't really have any true cons to report. Every place has a bump or two to deal with, but over all I think this is a fine company and would be happy to work for them again if the opportunity presented itself.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to value your finest assets and live by the PVBs - everything else will follow. Thanks for a great couple of years!

    Pros

    Little good employees left at this place.
    No pros.

    Cons

    Worst management team. They hide and cover up many things from missing residents, to sexual harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. They also do not pay medical benefits to full time and part time employees as well as tamper with accrued vacation hours. Culture and values installed is a joke!! Top management all not qualified for their positions. Do not bring your loved ones to this place!! They will not be treated well, and also neglected and possibly missing at times!! All the good managers left this facility due to upper management. They were expected to cover up for illegal activities, and also retaliated against if they stood up for their rights.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house starting from the top!! Worst management!! Many good people left this establishment. Employee turnover is extremely high and morale is very low. Very sad because the residents are being lied to and also not treated with dignity. A lot of illegal activities going on and I am sure that former employees contacted local authorities, including the media. They also hide the fact when residents are missing for up to several hours, and police or family of missing residents were not contacted!! Staff has not been in-serviced or trained properly for years!! They cover up so much from corporate and the residents families!! Truly an evil environment to work at!!

    I worked at Kisco Senior Living full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Training, compassion, associate engagement and leadership was the best. I loved working with seniors and their families. The very best programing, meals, choices and standards in living. The culture created by leadership was one of family, caring and doing your best to create a positive place for seniors, families and associates.

    Cons

    There was not as many opportunities for career growth in having only one location in our area of Florida. Our compensation package changed over the years and was tied more to areas of operations and overall revenue. Understandable, however not something we had control over in our department.

    Advice to Management

    A wonderful team indeed. Keep focusing on the big 3- Associates, residents and families.

    I worked at Kisco Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    -many opportunities to do good for the residents
    -free meals
    -fun and rewarding to interact with this generation of people
    -HR and Executive Director are great people and really care
    -vacation hours and benefits

    Cons

    -they hire people who can't or wont do the job of a caregiver, puts a heavy weight on other more capable caregivers
    -very low pay for the amount of responsibility and liability (getting hit by residents or straining back to lift heavy residents)
    -short staffed and high turn over rate, lots of call offs and quitting
    -manager of care staff is quick to criticize and doesn't appreciate staff, very condescending to everyone and fakes appreciation if other management or family is nearby

    Advice to Management

    - focus on team work between management and staff, it always felt like certain managers were against us and always trying to accuse us of something
    -listen to care staff and their suggestions

    Pros

    It is so rewarding to work for Kisco. It is very difficult to find a place to work that is professional, friendly, you feel respected, get good benefits and employer cares about you. I enjoy every single day getting up and come to work to my second home.

    Cons

    There is nothing negative I could say about Kisco.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up good work!

    Pros

    This company takes good care of its residents as well as its employees.

    The majority of other communities ONLY take care of their residents, not their employees.

    Every year, Kisco's corporate office and its employees from different communities would go outside of the US to build houses for those in need.

    Cons

    If you are afraid of change, you may not like to work there.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up with the open door policy. Keep on making the employees feel like family.

    Pros

    The company's philosophy is that if they take care of the employee, the employee will take care if the resident and the profits will take care of themselves. The benefits are phenomenal, the atmosphere is warm, friendly and inviting. They demonstrate integrity in everything they do.

    Cons

    They provide free lunch every day that includes a healthy salad bar, homemade soup, two entrees and a vegetable. I gained 10 pounds! What were they thinking!

    Advice to Management

    Stay steady on the course we are heading for something big.
