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

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the employee's but other than that it was a nightmare to work for this company. Things were handled unfairly by management as they turned a blind eye for the #'s.

    Cons

    No support from corporate and local leadership when the office was falling apart, not once but twice, excessive turn over and no one seems to care why good people are leaving.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees, ITS NOT all about the numbers/money. You have great field and office staff- genuinely acknowledge them for their work... without them things do not get done. Get rid of the "bad apples" they are destroying the staff moral and trust in the leadership and company.

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

    Pros

    Competitive pay, continuity of care with Silverado memory care communities

    Cons

    Terrible administrative management at corporate and local level, unsafe caseloads as staff is constantly in flux from nurses quitting

    Advice to Management

    Would be a waste of my time. To all nurses considering a job here, RUN far away from Silverado. Their image is an illusion, the reality is a nightmare of lack of support and poor management.

    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

    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!

    Pros

    Clean, beautiful environment to work in. The administration does all they can to work together and get things accomplished when they are notified.

    Cons

    Understaffing of caregivers to assist residents in a timely fashion is an issue. For ex: assistance to/from bathroom, going to/from activities, and residents who need extra supervision.
    If the service you provide requires you to be hired as an independent contractor, you never have a specific date of when you get paid.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more qualified caregivers who can help assist the residents in a timely fashion. Overall, the management truly cares for the residents and their staff. It appears that they try to make it a pleasant environment for all.
