Reviews

Company Culture

Employees were only out for themselves. A few employees worked very hard while others took credit for their work. There were many cliques and there were employees that were favored by the Executive Director.

Support from management

My manager was very focused on the big picture, and on receiving bonuses rather than on resident care and concern.

Teamwork

Management fostered cliques and did nothing about staff members who did not pull their weight, even after discussions with higher management.

Freedom to work independently

They stated that you could work independently, but then micro-managed everything you did.

Internal Communication

There was always negative communication - focusing on the things done wrong, but no communication for things done well.

Gender Equality

There were many women in the company, but in the building I worked, the opinions of the men counted more than the women's.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They tried to write up certain staff members who were older for miscellaneous things in order to be able to terminate them "legallly" when in reality they were terminating them for age.

Career Development

There are only opportunities if you are in the clique with the upper management.

Overall compensation for your work

I definitely did NOT make enough money for all of the work that I did. I worked late and on the weekends, but was never compensated either monetarily or with time off.

Office / Work Environment

Rooms were very hot and stuffy - but was due to the seniors wanting it warm. Lighting in the room was inappropriate for the work and for the vision acuity of the residents.

Environmental Friendliness

Did not recycle - was supposedly done "after trash was collected".

Work-Life Balance

Management expected you to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You were not given any vacation days until after working for 1 year, so they expected you to work 1 full year with no days off.

Company Image

I hated working for the company based on the culture and the way I was treated.

Job Security

They fired people regularly, so no job ever felt stable.

Handicapped Accessibility

Some doorways were not wide enough for larger wheelchairs/custom chairs to fit through.

Workplace Safety

Training were conducted on the computer annually. Fire drills conducted monthly, but no one knew what to do during a fire drill or emergency.

Challenging Work

My position required extreme multi-tasking and there was a lot to do every day, including nights and weekends.

Inclusive / Diverse

If your opinion was different than that of the Executive Director, then it was dismissed entirely.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The culture of the entire building needs to change. Staff need to work together as teammates instead of as parts of different cliques fighting against one another. The staff need to place the resident's needs ahead of their own - comfort and care should b

What I like about the company

The only positive personal experiences about this company were the relationships that I made with the residents who lived there. They were wonderful, caring and kind - much more so than the executive team that worked there. I was able to get to know them

What I dislike about the company

I highly disapproved of the corporate team, who had their own ideas and did not listen to anything the executive team in the building had to say. They fired people for no reason (and illegally) just because those people didn't "follow the party line". The
