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

    Pros

    We have an AMAZING core staff and an AMAZING leadership team. We are always working together as a team! When you ask a team member to do a task they all go above and beyond what is asked of them from care staff to culinary to housekeeping to maintenance to front desk! I feel we have a #DreamTeam at Meridian of West Hills!!

    Cons

    We can use a new Salon for our residents to make them handsome and pretty!!

    Advice to Management

    Not much we and they are so caring and compassionate and really cater to the needs of the families and residents!

    Pros

    an "ok" place to work, the Wellness director is amazing.

    Cons

    We were bought by meridian 4 months ago. They have yet to get our direct deposit figured out for payroll.
    They promised big things, nothings been delivered.
    We NEVER see corporate in the building despite their promises they would be very active, we have the same management that isn't worth a damn as past 4 companies that have owned us.
    Yearly evals are a joke, you have to give your 2 week notice to get them to do anything.
    Pay is frequently wrong and is very hard to get them to fix.
    The right hand never knows what the left hand is doing, they hired back someone who likes to talk more about himself than anything else.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the con's I listed and MAYBE just maybe you'd stop the massive revolving door you have, and might even get our census up.

    I worked at Meridian Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I loved starting off on the MC side! It was an amazing experience that has raised me to a brand new person that I never thought I could be. Yes at times it was very trying on everything in your core, because it's new and unfamiliar, but once the storms had passed, and memories flew in, it was absolutely amazing!

    Cons

    The staff that has now been fired was very unprofessional. They would schedule you to work 2-3 days in a row and only come in late by 3-4 hours for your new shift. My shift was evenings and i very often got called in to do NOC shifts because we were so short staffed. Training was NOT taken seriously and become a major problem when elders started getting mishandled and abused by people who only saw them as a paycheck.
    Things and health regulations where not in check up until inspection came down.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people that genuinely care and not just some joe shmo off the street that needs a job and a quick hire. I loved my residents and when I was terminated because of un just causes and saw how much more down hill the meridian i was stationed at got, its just down right heart breaking.

    Pros

    Upper echelon of corporate management is very genuine in their philosophies, business plan, and intention for the company as a whole. WOW Culture is amazing in theory; and given the right resources...do-able.

    Cons

    Unrealistic expectations placed on community leadership teams to accomplish expected workload and to accomplish WOW culture with very limited resources. While not necessarily intentional, many leaders are set up for failure.

     Regional team holds community accountable; however, does not hold themselves accountable to the support they offer.

    Scapegoats are used as needed! Six EDs let go in same region within 4 months?!? Hmm?

    Advice to Management

    Penny wise and pound foolish is not a sound long-term game plan. Stop placing band-aids. Get to the root cause and invest properly of time, resources, and money when necessary.
