    Large publicly traded company that treats it employees like a small business would. Ability to move up in the company through many different paths. Opportunities to interface with senior management is abundant.

    Skilled nursing industry is facing revenue challenges. Rate cuts from Medicare and uncertainty about future state and local governments is combined with intense regulatory scrutiny.

    Pros

    If you kow what you're doing with your work and can do it well Sun is a good place to work. Depending on the location and department there can plenty of opportunities for flexibile scheduling and time off. Senior management seems alert to what is happening with the industry.

    Cons

    Terrible middle and lower management, in fact there really is none. No feedback, direction, or guidance. No-one to talk to. No HR infrastructure. Promotions are not handled fairly and honestly. Criteria for advancement is not honestly explained, does not make sense and certainly is not related to performance. Minimal feedback on work (just more work). Annual performance revies are boilerplate. When a problem is identified management is all talk and commotion but they never actually do anything about it.

    Advice to Management

    I wonder if senior management is aware of how some of the VPs, middle managers and directors are running their areas?

    Pros

    Nice accomadations, Clean environment, good support staff,

    Cons

    Admiistrator needs to get in touch with more residents and staff, what they need and want, communicate better, and become more relaxed in her thinking and actions. The success of a company starts at the top and trickles down, this is not happening here!

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to fix things that are not broken. Build better trust among eployees and administration. Suspicion and mistrust is evident throughout. Take a personal closer look at what is going on throughout the facility, to see what's really going on, not just a quick spot visits, attend special events and activities Make yourself visible and kbown to residents. Perhaps rotate having a meal at their table. The residents need to know who you are and what you do!

    Pros

    The pay is decent. If you like the people you work with and the residents you care for, it can be a decent place to work.

    Cons

    The turnover rate of new hires and the way new hires are scared away with little to no orientation. Managers and staff are unprofessional in talking about other staff members. Staff is micromanaged. Managers rarely seem to follow through on plans and initiatives.

    Advice to Management

    Do not throw new hires on the floor without orientation on their first day. Give staff the support needed to do their jobs. Follow through on initiatives.

    Terrible union environment. Union staff make it difficult to manage the facility, and discipline staff. Terrible health benefits, and no room for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    No room for advancement. Listen to employees. Management didn't seem in tune with concerns or needs of staff. Need to offer better benefits, including tuition reimbursement.
