    I have been working at Kisco Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

    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.

    Pros

    The work environment is positive and the associates are amazing. The leadership is approachable and willing to listen. I can honestly say I love my job because of how the company is run. Everyone is encouraging and willing to help each other out. I have found a home and family at La Posada.

    Cons

    I can't think of any negatives. This place is awesome and really provides their associates with all the tools they need. Also, the directors are always available and the best bosses anyone could ask for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on being amazing.

    Pros

    Only one - the residents.

    Cons

    Senior and Regional Management are weak, non communicative and unfair; nefarious!

    Advice to Management

    Take a HARD look at the day to day operations at the community level.

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

    Pros

    Benefits, bonuses, good residents and good coworkers

    Cons

    Shorting employees on pay, not getting paychecks out, favoritism, DON is hardly available and turns her phone off, hiring people that are not qualified.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your employees, there is a reason as to why they are unhappy. Administrator needs to be more involved in RA problems, listen and investigate in a HEALTHY way when there are abuse and neglect allegations. DON needs to audit med carts, need more people on the floor especially med techs, more help from administration.

    Pros

    Benefits, serving the residents, family like environment ( if management is good)

    Cons

    Senior Management, Not trusting People in places for opinions

    Advice to Management

    Make an effort to keep the talent and develop them. It's so obvious to spot 2-3 all-stars in each community and help them reach for new goals.
    You have too many roles that are changing in the corporate level and new faces show up (operational leader, sales trainer, etc etc) So many fancy titles and then these people get either reassigned to a new role, move to another community or just leave or their position gets eliminated.
    Still remember the time when Andy Kohlberg hand delivered $500 bonuses to each employee. Money was nice but him being there and congratulating us motivated us for another year. Corporate trainers are nothing but the waste for the community and their budget (yes, corporate charged each community for their visits, as far as I know). Had a blast with Kisco but much happier at a new job because corporate is so much friendlier and trusting.

    I worked at Kisco Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    Best healthcare premiums in California. Unheard of such low premiums.

    Cons

    Directionless leadership. Accounting department is in shambles. If you need help and are in tremendous pain please don't make the mistake of going to HR, they will not help. High turnover of key positions in the corporate. Companies fails to take care of employees and their basic needs to perform their job. Very unhealthy environment.

    Advice to Management

    Please look into hiring leader who can actually manage people and have people skills. Investigate your Accounting department
