- The Holmstad Inc04.May 2017
Support from management
I work well with my supervisor, often sitting down to discuss my job and asking for my input.
My team works very well with each other, each person assisting the others and using our different strengths to help each other.
Freedom to work independently
I am allowed to make many of my own decisions, asking for help from the administrator or supervisor as needed.
Communication within the company could use improvement. The tools are there, but they are not being used.
Everyone has same opportunities. All depends on the level of your skill, not race or sex.
Attitude towards older colleagues
We have all ages working, from high schoolers to employees who have been there 35 years.
Scholarships are offered. There is tuition reimbursement. HR will cover costs of things with will enhance your job, such as classes to increase your computer skills if that is something you use in your position.
Overall compensation for your work
I feel that the pay is under the national average.
Office / Work Environment
I find the environment good. My only comment, and this is relating to just me, I find the temperature of the facility too warm. However, this is a residence for seniors who usually are more comfortable being warmer. This is their home. I was provided with a fan to help me stay more comfortable.
They recycle and also residents donate items which they no longer want to a local charity.
Families are taken into consideration. Depending on your position, hours can be altered. I have never felt any pressure to work additional hours, although to be fair, I work 40 hours per week and they do discourage overtime.
We have a good reputation, both locally and our corporate image. Our skilled nursing receives 5 stars rating.
There have been some job cuts recently.
Very good due to the population we serve.
Very concerned with workplace safety.
I am happy with the amount of challenge, although each day can be different.
Inclusive / Diverse
There are suggestion boxes in each breakroom for your ideas. My supervisor encourages out of the box thinking on situations.
What I like about the company
Treated as a well respected employee. Suggestions for improvement are taken seriously. Friendly coworkers who work as a team.
What I dislike about the company
Communication could be better. Salary could be improved.
