    Pros

    Great co-workers, forward thinkers in hospice industry and leadership that is truly dedicated to employees, patients, and families.

    Cons

    Long days, stress from home office on numbers, corporate entities lead by email. Bad apples giving care finally dismissed from team.

    Advice to Management

    Demand more freedom to make the decisions to keep the branch healthy. Past leadership was shunned when trying to make things better for the team. I'm just glad he still stuck around to carry us through under new admin. Things are picking up and growth is phenomenal! Love working here now that all those other toxic nurses are gone!

    Pros

    Flexible Schedule
    Good Team Work
    Great Food
    Great for inside Promotions

    Cons

    Only 4 Holidays Recognized Throughout The Year
    Too Much Stress...Not Enough Pay
    New Focus on Numbers and Money...Not The Residents
    NO WORK LIFE BALANCE

    Advice to Management

    Remember Love > Fear
    Residents are not numbers they are people
    Pay people for their hard work...these wages and salaries are pathetic

    Pros

    The goal of love is greater than fear is fantastic. How it plays out on a day to day basis is often a struggle.

    Cons

    Some changes are needed in the way of doing business. Things have been done the same way for a long time.

    Pros

    Great culture and work atmosphere. We feel appreciated and like family members. The leadership team truly cares for us, same as residents. The residents are wonderful and we have a great time connecting with them.

    Cons

    It is difficult sometimes to separate work and home life. We all are so close and work hard together. When someone is out and we don't find a replacement, the work load gets tough, but we get through it. The job and the residents are worth it!

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

    Pros

    -The desired culture is awesome...giving love and life to residents
    -Beautiful facilities
    -The upper level executive team listens and cares
    -Some helpful and understanding mid-management/regional leaders
    -Opportunity to develop relationships w/ residents and co-workers
    -Pay is at least average, above average in certain fields

    Cons

    - Entitled, lazy, whiny, unreliable associates. It is not one certain group...they are heavily in local entry level positions, some local management positions, and possibly some regional and home office positions. I mainly experienced it firsthand locally in various communities.
    -Everyone whines and complains about their various "grievances", imagined unfairnesses, and perceived too heavy of workloads. The fact is, if the majority of associates would just simply show up on time and perform their job, most issues would resolve themselves and this would be an awesome workplace.
    - The community was constantly short staffed and a mess...not primarily because of residents, but because of associates. Associates would throw trash on the floor, ignore resident alarms, not properly change residents, break-room was always a pig sty, habitually arrive late, always getting "sick", watch tv instead of assisting/engaging residents, roll their eyes if they were confronted.
    -Manager burn out - managers were expected to cover for all hourly associate absences, meaning that the manager was mainly working the hourly jobs, besides trying to perform their managerial duties

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire smart and manage wisely. Otherwise you will be stuck with the poorly performing associates and lose the good ones. Also, failure to do the aforementioned may cost you your job.

    I worked at Silverado full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In theory, it's a good company. They have a bunch of bullies as managers. It will bring back memories of your junior high days....if that is a pro...NOT~!

    Cons

    They treat their employees poorly. They have terrible management staff and they are not fair. They make their $ on the backs of the people they so poorly mistreat! Top management allows this bulling behavior to go on.

    Advice to Management

    Karma
