10 very good years
Administrator (Former Employee) –  Dallas, TXJanuary 15, 2018
Fundamental has a great business plan and a very good future. Over all support was excellent through the my ten years with Fundamental. Nursing Home business is a very tough business and long hours are to be expected if you really care about the residents.

After many supervisors over the ten years I finally got a micro managing supervisor.

I had many great managers over the years. Over all the company did a very good job hiring regional managers.
Pros
Very Nice Buildings for the most part.
Cons
Medicaid in TX is low paying companies every were are struggling.

Horrible back stabbing management and no teamwork
RN (Former Employee) –  Las Vegas, NVNovember 13, 2017
The nursing supervisors are trifling. If they don’t like you they will go on a witch hunt to find things to write you up for- even sometimes just making stuff up.
The nursing staff is horrible at working like a team. And they really need it. It’s every man for themselves.
Terrible place. Only go if you are desperate for a job and have an exit plan! Keep looking for a different job!

Hard work and dedication doesn’t pay off
Administrative (Former Employee) –  MarylandOctober 15, 2017
The company and people I work for and with are great. They are hard working dedicated people who truly care for the residents and their family members. The staff itself is like family. The corporate side of it... fundamental only care about the bottom dollar, not the employees and providing them wages they are due. They do not pay PTO out based on weeks given though it’s at will and only states it’s common courtesy to give a notice and when you try to fight them on the wording to receive half of your hard earned time after being in your position for years and leaving on good terms and giving a three week notice they handle it by not answering your questions and brushing you off. Punishment for leaving.

Just don't do it.
LPN Charge Nurse (Former Employee) –  Chambersburg, PASeptember 19, 2017
Management is a joke. The sad part is upper management use to be "floor staff" but has obviously since forgotten what it's like to work the floor. They promise to be understand and supporting but in the end, it's all what makes them look good to the outside. Patient to staff ratio is out of this world and don't you dare say you need help, you'll just be told "you need to learn to work." 15-16 residents per one CNA is outrageous and blame was always passed as to why they couldn't staff more on a unit. Understaffed, overworked, and staff is constantly promised things that just never happen. Stay away, no matter what they promise you or how much glitter they throw on it.
Pros
None
Cons
Management, poor staffing.

Stressful place to work
Billing Specialist (Current Employee) –  North Richland Hills, TXSeptember 18, 2017
They do not give raises and don't value their employees. Some of us do two peoples job and do not get compensated for it. But if we make a minimal mistake, we get called out on it.
Pros
Two 15 minute breaks
Cons
No pay raises

Think hard about this one.
RN (Former Employee) –  Inman, SCAugust 29, 2017
Two and half years = 5 Administrators, 5 Directors of Nurses causes a stressful unstable environment. Per upper management they are a 24 - 7 facility therefore they own you 24/7. It's all about how they can save a dime, and not what's best for the resident or staff. Management will do and say whatever they need to to make themselves look good. Being a team player means not being able to get the job you were hired to do completed in order to pass meds. Dropping whatever you have planned on your time to fill in for their shortage of nursing staff bc they allow multiple employees to be off at the same time and wonder why they don't have staff.
Pros
Some of the best residents!
Cons
You are owned by the company, never asked just told to do.

Stay away
Nursing Supervisor (Former Employee) –  South CarolinaAugust 4, 2017
This place has a negative work environment. Management has no idea what's going on or how to correct it,it is a shinking ship. There are people in positions that should not be. The administrative is weak. There's no incentive. The CNAS call out regularly. The building is falling apart. Corporate does not help, and has no intentions. With DHEC survey they don't attend, and after, they don't make an effort to help fix it. My advice is to stay away.

Terrible place to work
Support Center Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sparks, MDJuly 26, 2017
Very stressful work environment. Under staffed and micromanaged. No matter how hard you work it will never be rewarded. Company is less concerned with patient care and more worried about making money. Benefits aren't the worse.
Pros
nice coworkers, paycheck
Cons
inadequate staffing, environment, workload, no work/life balance, poor management, no training

RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Rock Hill, SCJuly 12, 2017
Not the best place to work, benefits are better than before. Usually management team is pretty good, administration is not the greatest. Not sure what it would take to get this company up to par to be productive company.

Worst job ever
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  MarylandJune 28, 2017
Benefits were promised but never obtained. Management sat behind closed doors, provided lip service and wouldn't step foot on the floor when needed. Management expected a nurse to cover 60 patients when staff called out.

Worse place I've ever worked
LPN (Former Employee) –  Spartanburg, SCJune 21, 2017
* DON/management - self serving, ill informed, money hungry, two
faced. They hide mistakes, change
charting, and don't answer their phones.
* Always short staffed ( No RN in the building at night, Management
rarely works a cart to help staff, they help spread gossip, they
promise two nurses on rehab but really one nurse attempts to care
for 30-34 patients alone with 1 CNA, The job is stressful and
unsafe.)
* Not enough Supplies
* No food,snacks, or nourishment for patients
* No organization
* No consequences for poor care or med errors.
* Little if any staff development
* Short and incomplete orientation
* Poor breakdown of paychecks/stubs hard to read and verify
* Night shift has little to no resources or access to management
* All staff is passive and refuse to assume responsibility.
but...The pay rate is awesome!
Pros
The pay rate is awesome!
Cons
just about everything but the pay is horrid

Horrible!!!!! Extremely horrible!!!
LVN (Former Employee) –  Richardson, TXJune 21, 2017
As a part of administrative staff and a nurse this place is horrible. No improvements can be made because nobody wants to work towards improvement. Staff nurses are lazy and entitled. But this appears to be the trend because administration is lazy and entitled also. Floor nurses and cna's are overworked and certainly underpaid.....and it shows. Administration is comprised of bullies. They bully the staff and the residents as well. The ADON has been accused on several occasions of abuse but this is accepted. This is not a place that is at all interested in providing excellent care to residents and families. Heads in the beds.....that's it. Severely and critically understaffed at all times. Has no regard for resident safety or the safety of their staff. Floor staff will at times work 17-18 hour days several nights in a row. They are exhausted and management doesn't care as long as it does not affect their day in any way. If you decide to work for this company.....God bless you. You will need it.

Managers were rude and it became a stressful and toxic environment. They expected you to do more than you could during the day and were upset if you couldn't get it all done.

Administrator (Current Employee) –  Lancaster, SCMarch 9, 2017
No healthcare employer is perfect, but the staff works together here and keeps the patients best at the front. Stable company with ok benefits. Overall a fun place to work. Most of the bad reviews are not from the Lancaster location as the company is nationwide.

Administrator (Former Employee) –  South CarolinaFebruary 23, 2017
Dont plan on a long term career as an administrator with this company. They have a high turnover for administrators. They have a hotline that staff use and take advantage of making lies on the Administrator to get rid of them. They are not supportive of the Administrator. Money focus more important then quality.
Pros
Clinical programs
Cons
No sense of job security

Unit Secretary (Former Employee) –  Charleston, SCFebruary 23, 2017
Loved most of my coworkers management was terrible they couldn't careless about the over worked and under paid employees the only thing management cared about was filling up the beds some of nurses and cna's did generally care about the residents but for the others it was just about the money which makes for a bad work environment the company is not ran on principles it's ran on personality also the turn over rate is at an all time high my suggestion this is a place to gain experience not to retire from

Activity Director (Former Employee) –  Lubbock, TXJanuary 16, 2017
If you desperately in need for a job can't get hired anywhere then this job still would not be for you it has been sold 3 times they can't pay the bills of the company or just won't your job is in jeopardy. If you get a 1 percent raise that's all it will be if that since they have a new owner. If you a department head you get other people trying to run your job instead of thier own they can't even keep an administrator that's how bad this place is . If state come in the building your expecting to lie on your paper work to save corporate behind putting your license on the line. To much back biting and administrators in on it. To many sticky fingers I've had things bought for the residents stolen nothing done. Do not waist your time going here.
