    Pros

    The pros of being employed by National Church Residences is the mission that some actually believe in and strive for. Being able to go be someone a place to call home.

    Cons

    It is all about who you know and making upper management look good. For an organization with such a name it is the most unchristian like organization there is. The employees out in the field do all the work and it's okay to be dishonest as long as it makes your Supervisor look good so they can get all the accolades. Lots of backstabbing and unfair treatment goes on while the upper management turns a blind eye to many things

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself if you would like to be treated like some of you treat others. While Mark Ricketts stand up at conferences and cries about what the organization did for his father and you try to live and work the mission while you are treated horrible because upper management seems to have huge egos and really don't care about you.and when they do take a moment to speak with you they act like they are doing you a favor. If only the practiced what they preach

    Put all housekeeping staff 5 days a week in their own area. Then more things can get done.

    I worked at National Church Residences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    National Church Residences has a good focus and mission. People seem to genuinely care about the work they do work. I especially liked the fact that they have open prayer once a month that is open to all employees.

    Cons

    The training in the area I was in was not suitable for the time that I was expected to learn the job. I feel like this company has a high turned over simply because they do not take the time needed to train the employees. The workload is so extensive that it takes at least 6 months to 1 year to actually feel comfortable in working in a position. ...Very heavy workload and poor supervision. I don't believe most of the HR staff are educated in their field so the company has slow growth in company goals and high expectations in production. Manager relied on staff to manage new employees.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest the company to simply go through a reorg process and form a Organizational Management Department that determines better processes that work together for the company as a whole to include the mission, goals, finances, best practice research, technology and employees ...etc.

    Pros

    If you have an idea and it benefits the residents, employees and company, then you can implement the idea.

    Cons

    As with all companies, it is sometimes difficult to get decisions made.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful to offer work at home options to some employee groups.

    Pros

    It is good to work for a company that promotes from within and acknowledges good work performance. There are so many opportunities working for a growth company in a specialized field. Good to be apart of this organization.

    Cons

    Expectations are high and the pace is fast, not a good fit for everyone causing turn over in many areas.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the good leadership and add more resources to systems that will improve efficiencies.

    I worked at National Church Residences full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility for nurse case managers
    Not intensely supervised
    Not accountable for daily whereabouts
    Flexibility with creating schedules

    Cons

    On-call rotation tiring
    Lack of updates and not encouraged to update team members
    Other disciplines (than nurses) not valued

    Advice to Management

    Verbalize and encourage importance of team communication about the entire care of patients, treat all members with the same respect as nurses, hold entire team accountable and as equally valuable, speak respectfully to all and value loyalty to improve the reputation of team importance so when there is turnover, this perception isn't known between healthcare professionals on the community, (as I learned when I left) Guide all team members to contribute as the professional experts that are hired versus micromanaging/dictating their roles, decisions and include each expert in clinical/program decisions that are made

    Pros

    This is a wonderful place to work where I've had a great opportunity to help our community's elderly. From the top down, I have found that decisions are made for our organization always with our mission at the top of mind. I couldn't be prouder and more appreciative of the opporutnity I have to serve our residents on a daily basis. We have recently received our new benefits package and one of the items I found to be very positive was the amount of choice each employee had in electing a plan that fit their individual needs. It really showed the high level of priority our organization places on their team members.

    Cons

    None - this is a GREAT organization!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to expand our mission work!
