Support from management

I work well with my supervisor, often sitting down to discuss my job and asking for my input.

Teamwork

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.

Internal Communication

Communication within the company could use improvement. The tools are there, but they are not being used.

Gender Equality

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.

Career Development

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.

Environmental Friendliness

They recycle and also residents donate items which they no longer want to a local charity.

Work-Life Balance

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.

Company Image

We have a good reputation, both locally and our corporate image. Our skilled nursing receives 5 stars rating.

Job Security

There have been some job cuts recently.

Handicapped Accessibility

Very good due to the population we serve.

Workplace Safety

Very concerned with workplace safety.

Challenging Work

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.

Company Culture

Managemet was good about taking care of their own but rarely did the pat on the back make it down to the employees. Management was non very non transparent, everything was a secret.

Support from management

Inexperienced leadership learning their way as they go making many mistakes along the way.

Teamwork

They profess the concept but fall short following through the with it.

Freedom to work independently

They never asked for input or involved you. As long as you did your work they let you do what you wanted.

Internal Communication

The communication was terrible. With all of the technology available you would think it would have been much better.

Gender Equality

They used to have more women in management but started declining about four years ago.

Attitude towards older colleagues

They encourage youth. It seems anyone who left the company that was 50+ was replaced by someone in their late 20's early 30's.

Career Development

If you were in management they supported your growth. Employees had to better themselves by taking classes on their own. They did offer tuition reimbursement but you had to get approval on the class and your boss had to have the funding in the budget to reimburse you.

Overall compensation for your work

They were always good about paying you on time but wages were lower than the industry average.

Office / Work Environment

Nice working conditions, they have the funding to buy the latest and greatest.

Work-Life Balance

They were flexible in letting you take your time off.

Company Image

Image was a philosophy that was strongly supported but they didn't live it out.

Job Security

It used to be more stable. When new management came in I was told they didn't know what they were going to do with my position and my department was going to be eliminated eventually.

Handicapped Accessibility

They are very conscious about accessibility.

Workplace Safety

They are very conscious about safety and staying under budget for workplace accidents.

Challenging Work

I was proud of the work that we did though it wasn't very challenging. When I asked for more responsibility/challenges I was told they didn't have anything more for me to do.

Inclusive / Diverse

They were not diverse at my level. They did not encourage a philosophy of group input.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Become more transparent and diverse. Live the mission statement and not just profess it.

What I like about the company

They are trying to make changes to remain competitive in a declining senior living market.

What I dislike about the company

They do not encourage diverse opinions from those who actually perform the work.
