    I have been working at Wingate Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of interaction with patients and family and opportunities to have a positive impact on care given on a daily basis.

    Cons

    Lack of support and leadership from the top on down, staff ratio poor making it difficult to give great care when overwhelmed. Very toxic work environment. Leadership lack vision and focus and are unaware or indifferent that the facility is imploding and the patients are the losers in this equation. Morale could not get any lower, staff leaving the situation for all of those reasons and more.

    Advice to Management

    Realize the staff is the front runners of your facility and their impact should not be minimized.

    I worked at Wingate Healthcare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Has multiple homes..Has its own nursing agency say for instance , if you don't want to stay working in the same building you can apply with that separate part of the company and work in different places. It's a good place to work right after nursing school.

    Cons

    The pay could be better. Administration and the Corporate Office should care more for their employees and show them appreciation for their hard work.

    I worked at Wingate Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Healthcare industry is good. That's all.

    Cons

    Horrible management: always last minute changes and priorities, no proper training, no clear communication. Absolutely zero respect for your personal time - there is no life/work balance. Expect 50-60 hours a week at minimum. Don't care if you'll burnout.

    Pros

    Not much pros unless you were a nurse.

    Cons

    Always understaffed, when you stayed over picked up extra shifts, they never appreciated it. They treat nurse better then cnas. They give them bonus ,a gift card, tell them thanks. Cnas nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all staff the same it takes a team of different jobs to run a great company not just one dept

    I worked at Wingate Healthcare part-time

    Pros

    The nurses were amazing teachers and truly cared for me.

    Cons

    I was treated badly by other CNA co-workers and when I asked management if they wanted to know why I quit they said I didn't get paid enough to care.

    Advice to Management

    Care about each employee to have a good company.

    I have been working at Wingate Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A couple of years ago Wingate was a good place to work.

    Cons

    Now everyone is overworked because of job cuts, everyone is stressed and management doesn't care. The computers don't work and it takes days to get someone to help. It used to be much better.

    Advice to Management

    Get better senior management and make the computers work!
