    Pros

    Being non-profit feels good. It allows us to put revenue back into making things better for residents and staff.

    Cons

    We are not perfect, but we try.

    Pros

    Amazing coworkers and residents. Close bonds formed with both staff and residents. 8 hour shifts are nice instead of 12.

    Cons

    Administration does not listen to employees and makes employees feel so small. Do not feel like they exhibit Christian values. They talk to you like you are dumb and are not open to suggestions nor do they do anything to help you when it's needed.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees! Make them feel valued instead of a doormat.

    Pros

    Great organization who cares for its employees. The people are amazing and I am thankful for all the good things that I can be involved with.

    Cons

    It is growing with new construction so there is a lot of noise and building going on at the moment, but I can't wait until it is done!

    Advice to Management

    Keep talking to employees!

    Thanks for the very positive feedback! We are excited for the construction to end, too - but this year will be such fun - the new pool, Starbucks coffee, a day spa, and more! Thanks for your... More

    They are very caring, kind, and always willing to help.

    I worked at Messiah Lifeways (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Residents and co-workers were the best!

    Cons

    For being a "Christian" facility, feel management did not show. On a day to day basis, didn't
    know where you stood.

    Advice to Management

    Don't go by some of your staff honesty - do a through investigation!

    Friendly colleagues and wonderful residents. Meaningful work, peaceful environment, great benefits. Feel like you make a difference. Good benefits and helpful HR team.

    Cons

    Not too many. Every job has downsides but ML has been around for 120 years! They do great work. Even during construction they have a volunteer shuttle to take employees around campus. Over and above!
