    I have been working at Lutheran Senior Services part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been a CNA here for four years while attending school. I have really enjoyed being a part of the team. My house coordinator always works well with us and listens to our ideas. The residents are well taken care of.

    Cons

    Some recent budget cuts put too much stress on the kitchens, I wish they would go back to having cooks for each household.

    Advice to Management

    Residents pay a lot of money to stay here and the management seems too concerned with the budget.

    Cons

    the load is heavy. and sometimes upper management is hard to communicate with. things that need to be taken care of sometimes is misunderstood and or overlooked.

    Advice to Management

    To hear the lower position. they are your backbone to the whole operation.trust your eyes and ears to the floor. Most worker are great leader if given the proper and just guidance. quit try to muffle the little guy.
