    Pros

    Good Compensation and nice office.

    Cons

    Zero job security, unethical practices, and favirotism. They let employees go without even warning or counseling them. You are on the edge about your job because you never know when you are the next to be let go.

    Advice to Management

    Discipline employees and provide them with feedback. Don't just fire employees out of the blue without a single warning.

    I have been working at Legacy Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Legacy is a growing company filled with compassion, talent, and the drive to be the leaders in long-term healthcare as a means to provide the best quality care and comfort for their guests. They care so much about their employees and their career development while promoting a healthy work-life balance. I have worked in the other long-term care companies and Legacy provides a level of care and attention to detail that is completely unparalleled. Team members really come together to support each other and to provide comfort and support to nursing home guests. I love my job and I love the people I work with / for , I wake up everyday excited to go to work and welcome whatever the day might bring.

    Cons

    There are no cons . if you are hardworking ,compassionate, want to make a difference, and want to work with amazing people there is no better place.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A company that takes a chance on younger talent, and rewards employees financially. Solid Regional management team, of very sharp individuals, albeit white male dominated.

    Cons

    Very poor upper management. Very rash rush to judgment, and poor listening skills. Makes decisions based on impulse with little to no rationale or logic.
    Very difficult to "feel relaxed and comfortable" in their environment. Employees never feel that their work/life balance means much to the management team.
    Bottom line: I would not trust the CEO or COO with my career under any circumstances.
    This management style hobbles the otherwise very capable regional directors and saddles them with a bad strategic direction and micromanagement.

    Advice to Management

    Let go, and let your managers do their job.

    I worked at Legacy Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Spiffed up Warren Barr Gold Coast with fancy renovations, furniture, lighting and impractical patient care areas (The patient rooms have dividers that block the second patient entirely. Clinical staff cannot check on patient without going all the way into the room.) Its now a shiny turd.

    Cons

    Disregard for the patients is evidenced by the miserable employees that are charged with the care for those patients. The employees, primarily CNAs, housekeeping and dietary) are overworked (patient to employee ratio), unappreciated and disengaged. The patients well-being is dependent upon the employee morale, as they, the front line staff, are the ones that primarily interact with them. Management is a social club, hires made not based on skill or experience, but on looks or preferred religious affiliation.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so superficial. Skilled nursing is not about looking pretty; its about providing top-notch care, which begins and ends with taking care of your staff that provide that patient care. I would never, ever allow anyone I know to be placed in any of your facilities.
