    Pros

    Good pay for the work.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't care at all about the facilities or residents. They'll cut your budget to ribbons, but expect better quality. They don't support short staffed locations. Their "values" are a joke. No one lives the values that they try to brainwash you into. Programs are a complete waste of time, anyone can come up with the stupid events they offer. Lies when getting the contract lead to unrealistic...

    Advice to Management

    HELP YOUR LOCATIONS! DM's and up offer no local support whatsoever. People can't do anything if they don't have people.

      I worked at Unidine full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Great coworkers. Nice office. Good location. Great concept. But beware.

      Cons

      How does one say this professionally? The CEO, who micromanages everything, is mentally unstable. He yells at employees in public, spies on them using video cameras (even had monitors in his house), actually stole a phone charger from my desk (I caught him red handed). In short, stay clear.

      Advice to Management

      Too bad the CEO owns the company. Nothing will change. Stay clear of this garbage fire.
