    I have been working at Presbyterian Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the residents and all the activities the community offers to them.

    Cons

    The food is not from this region and the head chef use to work for a prison.

    Advice to Management

    More interaction with co workers. Stop letting other co workers tattle on each other that are meaningless.

    I have been working at Presbyterian Senior Living part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Wonderful residents.Clean. Patient caregivers, such as CNA's, LPNs, and supervisors, truly care about the residents.

    Cons

    Very poor leadership at Greenridge Village (part of PSL). Agency administrative staff member permitted to treat and talk to other staff members with a lot of disrespect, and unprofessionalism. This includes in front of residents. Too many things "swept under the rug."

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow your agency, interim, staff members to mistreat your loyal, regular, staff members, and you will see a huge turnaround in staff retention. Also, stop letting issues that are not only pertinent to staff retention, but also to patient care, continue to be swept under the rug.

    Pros

    Coworkers are great enjoyed working there

    Cons

    Corporate office needs to more involved in training.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention when employees call with concerns and issues instead of letting them go for voicing their issues

    Pros

    Stabile industry with promising growth.

    Cons

    Senior management only places value on middle management complying and killing fires effectively. Very little innovation to respond to the changing landscape of senior services. The organization has not adapted to change and the cycle of growth is crushing the spirit of the workforce that gets the job done day in and day out. This has resulted in the loss of good staff.

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at how compassion is delivered at the care level of seniors and model that kind of grace all the way up to the top of senior management. It seems to be fine to extend care and grace to those who are served but if management needs to step on and crush staff along the way to accomplish it's objectives the mission turns to hypocrisy. Senior management needs to look around and ask questions... it's not that deep of an organizational structure to find the issues and address them.

    I worked at Presbyterian Senior Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    PSL cares for their employees. You get what you give. If you work hard and apply yourself while keeping a positive attitude your only limitations are those with which you place upon yourself.

    Cons

    The work load is at times very demanding. If you do not care to work hard and take your career seriously you will not do well here. Having said that, hard work and dedication does not go unnoticed.

    I worked at Presbyterian Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed the diversity of my fundraising responsibilities and the salary was fair. I did not like working in a vacuum in my territory alone and would like to get together with my counterpart but there was a definite divide.

    Cons

    After two and half years I was dismissed, without warning and without any discussion ahead of time. I was going out on short time medical leave and I could not prove it had anything to do with that timing. I worked very hard achieving my fundraising goals but their were some local executives that did not care for my relationships etc. I still have not recovered from this decision nor did they ever reorganize my department as they said they were going to. It's now a year later.

    Advice to Management

    Before you affect a person's personal and professional career, think before you act and ask yourself is this part of our mission of work to treat an employee in this manner after she has worked and dedicated her life to PSL.

    I worked at Presbyterian Senior Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, little oversight, freedom to find creative solutions. My immediate supervisors were great.

    Cons

    Pay and benefits low for the industry, you better be self motivated, because corporate lacks the ability to motivate anyone. Why bother striving for greatness when it comes back to haunt you. Upper management can be rude to hourly employees.

    Advice to Management

    Managers should be spending their time managing employees and caring for residents, not trying to keep up with worthless scheduling software and constantly changing HR policies.

    I have been working at Presbyterian Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been with the company for 4 years and their mission is outstanding. They truly want what is best for their residents.

    Cons

    They are not fair to employees in many ways, poor pay rate, lack of concern for employees, no advancement, they want you to wear multiple hats but only pay for one oh those hats. Currently I am doing that of four people on other campuses but only get paid for one of those positions and the corp office turns the other cheek because they don't want to hear it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to what is going on at your campuses and ask employees what/how they are doing and feel about their company.
