    Due to its religious base it tends to be more conservative which I liked.

    Under the skin it was not all it was made out to be

    I have been working at Presbyterian Homes & Services full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent team work, good organization between disciplines, acceptable productivity levels.

    Cons

    Very little accrual of paid time off. Management takes a lot of vacation days while employees are forced to work holidays. My manager takes of at least one day per week and has had 2-3 extended weekends per month as well as several longer vacations. Yet I am always scrimping to have a day off here and there.

    Advice to Management

    Reconsider the amount of paid leave and unpaid leave you give employees and instead of accrual in tiny increment per pay period , give 2 weeks at the beginning of each fiscal year.

    I worked at Presbyterian Homes & Services part-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, PTO, nice co-workers, friendly residences, excellent compensation

    Cons

    Low Census means hours are cut DAILY, poor management at Gracepointe Crossing, HR doesn't reply to emails or effectively communicate.

    Advice to Management

    Touching Hearts at the Gracepointe Crossing campus was confusing. It was a 3 day event and I did not receive all the information I needed to succeed at Pres. Homes. I was not given any phone numbers to communicate with anyone.

    I have been working at Presbyterian Homes & Services part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Reliable schedule, you know when you'll be working. Regular raises (yearly, every 1000 hours). Easy to pick up shifts if you have free days. Like my coworkers. Bosses seem nice and understanding.

    Cons

    I have worked part-time for a year and have earned no PTO. It is also notoriously difficult to get time off requests covered by the staffing office. Often times you have to cover shifts yourself. Can be understaffed at times. I work overnights, and they under staff us a lot.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to earn PTO, even if it is much lower than full timers. Allow for nurses to decide if they should call someone in if another person doesn't show for night shifts.


  10. "Teamwork"

    I worked at Presbyterian Homes & Services full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Worked with a lot of good people.

    Cons

    No merit raises, I was unable as a hiring manager to reward a great employee with a raise.

    Advice to Management

    Listen more at Stand-up and talk less in Stand-up.
