    Pros

    Very rewarding career, lots of help from management and administration.

    Cons

    AWFUL benefits!!!!! You will likely never give a raise and the pay is not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Offer better benefits your benefits are some of the worst I've ever seen, you offer no help for retirement.

    Pros

    The company honestly cares about the employees.

    Cons

    Nursing management has to work the floor when short staffed.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly tackle the problem with high turnover in nursing management. Stop having the management work the floor and work too darn many hours.

    Pros

    I can't think of any company that is as well "organized" as any sava facilty, the staff (administration) thinks of ppl first and money second, the nurses are treated with respect and honor, everything is fair, the medical treatment is just incredible, there are no cliques, almost zero overturn, no complaints from anyone, the food is way above what the budget calls for, the residents always come first, has anyone caught on yet??? B/C Everything I just said is not only a bold face LIE it's exactly the opposite...Not all, but a LOT of "pseudo professionals" in my opinion should be in jail/prison....

    Cons

    absolutely everything, abook might suffice, of course "dead residents don't talk"

    Advice to Management

    even rats know when to abandon a sinking ship...the torpedo is headed your way...legally.."you can fool some of the ppl all the time, you can fool all the ppl some of the time...but you cannot fool all the ppl all the time...

    I have been working at Sava Senior Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great co workers within the rehab department.

    Cons

    Poor management, no respect, dictatorship, lack of empathy. The rehab department is the worst I have ever worked in. Management is not at all concerned about the therapist. Possibly a trickle affect from corp. This management rather utilize PRN staff then ever think of providing you with a 40hr work week. Never Have I ever had a 6.5 hr day across 3-5 therapists and a PRN is also in the building for 4 hrs. Appears to be a personal attack. Sava needs to provide support to management or hire managers with greater experience. The mood in the gym is lack of a better word poopy when ADOR has a frown all day every day on her face. Utilization of PRN staff are at the cost of the full time therapist at this company. If this is the Sava way then so be it if not Corp should really talk one on one with there dedicated therapists that remain with Sava under these work conditions.

    I worked at Sava Senior Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with my team. Upper management was accessible to those of us working in the field support office and assisted me when I asked. I felt I was given the resources needed to do my job.

    Cons

    I had to report to the office every day, despite being on salary with a job easily done from home. Even being allowed to telecommute a few days a month would have been helpful.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the people who allow you to earn your high salaries are the ones making the least amount of money in the centers. Take care of your NHAs and DONs. The reputation is out there in the industry that Sava is not a good place to work.

    I have been working at Sava Senior Care full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Not very much. At first blush it seems like a great company. Only pro is being able to indirectly impact patient care in a positive way.

    Cons

    They don't walk the talk.
    Terrible culture.
    Lots of cliques and if you aren't 'in' the right one you'll never make it.
    The only people who have remained are either part of the problem or have learned to keep their mouth shut.
    They have no interest in knowing the truth about the way things are there.
    They fail to simply 'do the right thing' on every single level.

    Advice to Management

    Stop protecting a select few. No one is honest about the culture because the truth is you aren't open to actually believe who are the people that are part of the problem.
