    Pros

    Amazing co-workers! Everyone is willing to help each other out even if it's "not their job." We truly work at a great community. The management is really approachable and encouraging as well as open to listening to employee complaints. If they have an issue with you they will let you know, but they also want to help you grow-- they are always talking about career advancement opportunities!

    Cons

    Honestly every workplace has its issues and if I try hard to think about it I would say that Walker Methodist Levande can have issues with communication, but that being said they are always working on the issues and do not ignore employee concerns.

    I have been working at Walker Methodist full-time

    Pros

    Directors are willing to work all shift and in any department that needs a hand. I have personally seen the DOH, HSD, LIfe enrichment Director, and Maintenance Director help or work a NOC shift. Current staff is happy and there is such a positive atmosphere. Love the residents and the can do-can help attitude I see. Residents love it here they share this whenever asked.

    Cons

    New building so there are some kinks to work out and challenges as it continues to grow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up what you are doing we feel valued and heard.

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

    Pros

    The hourly staff members who show up everyday to do the hard work, knowing that they will be short staffed.

    Cons

    Empty promises made by leadership teams to residents. Not equipped enough to handle staff shortages. High turn over compared to length of time it takes to hire. Staff members consistently covering multiple shifts due to a lack of staffing. Human resources slow to source qualified candidates. Low pay for hourly workers that are not competitive with the market. required to generate revenue in order to buy equipment which is needed to operate. Broken systems that do not clearly define the expectation of the employer. Lack of training and poor management.

    Advice to Management

    Give people the tools they need to succeed. Listen to your staff members. Learn to actually implement your vision. Remember collaboration means not being afraid to get dirty, to work next to all of your staff and to empathize with them. Respect means listening, understanding, and having admiration for those who show up everyday. Imagination means means actually creating new ideas, and concepts that further your vision. Creating an environment that is solely focuses on the quality of life for residents as well as staff.

    Help people help you! The greatest asset to any business is your staff! If you make everyone expendable, you will have low employee retention.

    Learn to Care!!!!

    Pros

    The residents were lovely

    Cons

    Older employees treat the younger ones like their slaves while also refusing to help out at all. Most of the nurses treat the NAR’s and residents like they are beneath them and when reported nothing gets done.
