    I worked at Shelter Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Home office is a small company - if that is what you are looking for. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Small company, good pay. Most of the managers that have been there long term would never make it at another company. They’re behavior has been allowed to become unprofessional over time, there is a lot of gossiping, rumors and daily drama. The company and the communities have significant turnover and retention issues and hiring practices are a mess. Nothing wrong with taking a job for the money, but keep the resume updated and continue to look for better options.

    I worked at Shelter Group (More than a year)

    Pros

    Assisted living and senior healthcare are certainly services that will remain in demand. There is an opportunity to learn what all goes into different aspects of this business. There are also some genuine good people that work there.

    Cons

    The "Teamwork" component of their STARS core value is misleading. A team, by definition, is a group of people that work together towards a similar goals. At Shelter, nobody works together; instead it's management firing off orders to their staff for what they need to get done. It's also a "Good Ol' Boys" network. Just because they have a woman serving as the face of leadership of the company doesn't mean they are progressive in women's / minorities' rights.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to work as a team member. Learn to work alongside your peers and those that support you. You earn more respect that way. A title means nothing if you do not respect other job functions.

    Pros

    Great benefits, desirable downtown location, convenient to metro if you live along the route.

    Cons

    The executive management's expectations are domineering and tyrannical, intimidated by subordinates that are confident and assertive. You can only play by their rules.

    Advice to Management

    Stop intimidating the staff when you want to show that you are in control. Just because you are in a position of management does not mean you are superior to others.
