      Pros

      Friendly coworkers and fun working environment. It's always nice seeing your residents everyday and making their lives easier and seeing their smiles.Everyday is new adventure. Always work with the same small group of coworkers making it easier to build relationships and trust one another. Aside from general care, there are many opportunities to do activities with the residents and relax with them. The scheduling is very flexible! No experience required.

      Cons

      Low pay and no significant raises (e.g. 5 years and only a $1.00 increase from $12.00 to $13.00). High stress (angry family members, residents with extreme emotional/behavioral expressions, quick-paced, strict regulations).

      Pros

      Excellent training, pay, benefits and work environment. Good company culture and very rewarding work.

      Cons

      This is a huge company with some organizational flaws that make it difficult to answer to the various demands from corporate while managing one's day to day job responsibilities. Some disparity between high-paying customer expectations and poor delivery of service. Hard, sometimes grueling work. There are some "bad apples" in leadership roles who's behavior does not align with the value statement and mission of the organization. Too much tolerance for bad behavior.
