    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time

    Pros

    Beautiful location, close to the hills of Saratoga. Non-Profit Saratoga Retirement community owned by the Odd fellows.

    Cons

    Bedbugs at Saratoga retirement community, on going issue. Management offers little or no training to new staff. Team doesn't feel supported. Pay less than most comparable RCFE and older adult care facilities in the bay area. High clinical acuity (need), and staff not trained to care for this population. Disconnect between management and staff.

    Pay is way below market. Management is pretty aloof.

    Focus on retaining your good employees.

    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Consistent paycheck
    - Employer Paid Benefits
    -(Left Blank Intentionally)

    -(Left Blank Intentionally)

    Cons

    -Hourly employees are treated like stray dogs by upper management
    -Human resources supports/enables mistreatment by upper management
    -Opportunities for advancement/recognition are awarded based on popularity not on merit (seniority is a joke)
    -And much, much more!

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs serious leadership training. It is not okay to spend six hours in meetings, one hour on break, thirty minutes "doing paperwork" / sending funny memes via group text to other department heads, fifteen (which turns into twenty-five) minutes saying their goodbyes to said department heads, and five minutes listening to their teams issues before they head out for the day.

    If hourly employees are expected to work independently or with little to no management then some of the manager positions need to be cut. Their salary should be used to hire more hourly employees, buy new equipment, invest in the people that make this business run on a day-to-day basis. It makes no sense to have a room full of people with multiple degrees yet no leadership skills or capabilities.

    I have been working at Pacific Retirement Services full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits - best coverage and pricing I've ever had

    Cons

    Management ignores glaring employee issues. All of my coworkers were generally unhappy and nothing was ever done to address any of the complaints or problems. Pay is really low.

    Advice to Management

    Don't ignore the "lowest" employees. They are the foundation.
