- Journeycare, Inc.04.May 2016
No encouragement or praise from management. They only point out faults.
Support from management
Some great coworkers.
Freedom to work independently
there is some autonomy with this position.
Very poor communication.
This company is run mostly by women.
Attitude towards older colleagues
Very political. Hire directors from the outside. Many unqualified but trained into their roll. Very top heavy.
The political click will be promoted time and time again. Many CNA's have a background that is overlooked for chances of advancement. CNA's are more often than not treated with respect.
Overall compensation for your work
Company often hires workers with less experience and pay them much more than current employees who have been long servicing and valuable.
Office / Work Environment
Nice facility. Supplies are readily available most of the time.
They pretend to recycle and use styrofoam cups in at least one facility.
They do not care at all about work-life balance and will allow you to work an infinite number of 12-hour shifts in a row if they need you.
Employees will talk nice about the company regardless of their real feelings. This is not a reflection of the reality of how they feel.
There is no sense of stability even though this company keeps taking over other hospices. There is no feeling of company loyalty.
The main office in Barrington was built state of the art and does provide ease in access to building and has an elevator.
It appears this done.
The work itself is less challenging than other CNA jobs, like nursing homes or hospitals.
The challenging part is with the previously mentioned areas.
Inclusive / Diverse
Yes, there is a diverse culture and it is supported by all.
Suggestions for improvement
- Fix the things written above. Stop hiring unqualified friends into upper management positions. Listen - really listen with respect to the staff when they address needs.
What I like about the company
Working with the patients.
What I dislike about the company
Company is unorganized in accomplishing changes. Many meetings without decisions. They don't honor input from staff about the changes they are planning when the changes directly affect the work being done by the staff. They ignore the things that will make the job easier for staff. They often work the staff short-handed. They are disrespectful to staff. The bad culture started at the top.
