Where do I start.. I lasted 3 years and I dont know how!
PCA (Former Employee), Pittsburgh NorthsideMay 20, 2013
Pros: great pay and benefits, good if you are in school or have a busy home life. room to advance within the company
Cons: too many chiefs not enough indians, constant turn over!!!!
The company is ran by its MANY bosses. There is a boss for a bosses bosses bosses boss. You never know who to go to and who truly is your boss or which way the chain of command goes. Too much bickering and hostility at the work place, People do what they want when they want. If they like you, you will get away with murder, if they don't you will get – more... fired for ANYTHING. In my first 6 months I probably saw 4 different people in a position. It is not unusual for a person to only last any where from a day to a week before they quit. Orientation provides you with a warm welcoming, but once you are sent to your post its another story. You kind of have to get in where you fit in. This job WILL follow you home and consume more than just your time at work. If you want to make a easy couple of dollars, and can mind your business and stay out of the way its a great stepping stone!!!!! Use it to your advantage! – less

Its not aplace dedicated employees in healthcare have tenure if you are compassionate hardworking enjoy life respectful this is not the company
Center aide (Former Employee), Pittsburgh, PASeptember 30, 2012
Pros: decent pay wage at the beginnig lots of perks doing your tenure
Cons: not respected as a employee no chance for growth make a difference
It was the first job i ever had that I didnt miss I enjoy taking care of people You in out in the cold assisting people on and off the van which can cause you to be sick It is a position you are not appreciated not addressed or spoken to respectfully.You assist with meals dressing showering stimulation remind medication medical appts in home care dealing – more... staff family members managers who are not quailfied but by school for there positions.The worst part about the company is the have no compassion for important things life I enjoy life so my most enjoyable things I know I can be forward and stern but to address adult able people with respect dignity is what make healthcare work respondible reliable hardworking dedicated to getting the best care possible in the safest way following osha hippea laws with the same respect you give you own family members why to to you like a baby if your not let you still have the dignity to be respected and treated like a adult fully explain what is going and let you family with a civil mind make the decision instead of a company just to keep as a client because the insurance will pay but your not getting the care its paying for.Work for a company your proud of respect instead of a check and weekends off. – less

A place where I can mix fun with a day of productivity
Facilities Manager (Current Employee), Greentree, PAAugust 30, 2012
Pros: my schedule is flexible to a point and determined by me, i enjoy making a difference in the life of an elderly person, there is a need for a person with my skills there.
Cons: i haven't been moved in to more of a managerial position as promised, the physical demands are making it difficult to continue the maintenance repairs.
No day is typical at LIFE Pittsburgh. That may be the most interesting part of the job. One day I may be working on participants' equipment. The next day I may be working with contractors to repair damage that occurred over night; and the next day I may be repairing the washer or dryer or painting a room. I learned how to work in an environment with – more... people that depend on my help. I learned to care more for the elderly and how to balance taking time to talk to someone that needs an ear and getting the job done. I work for several different levels of management and learned what it takes to individualize their requests and their needs and see that each one is taken care of the way they want it done. I work with over 200 employees and enjoy seeing them every day. I learned how to communicate to many different ethnicities and to find common threads that links us together. The hardest part of my job is dealing with some people that do not understand what my function is and how it fits in to the larger puzzle. Most people are understanding and are able to cooperate with all of the demands that are put on me. But, there are a few, as in any company, that have a hard time seeing things from another person's perspective. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing that the participants are happy to be in a safe, clean environment. – less

poor management
aa (Former Employee), acJanuary 3, 2013
Cons: everything
If your a hard working dedicated employee DO NOT apply here. I have seen some of the best employees I have ever worked with be driven out due to management. They frown upon fun and comrodery between employees. The bottom dollar is more important than care of the participants. Stay away!!
