Tech Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – February 26, 2014
A typical day in the Service Desk here consisted of back to back phone calls from the moment you login to your phone til its time to leave.
Since this this position specifically for myself was dual role, I provided on site support as well as maintaining some of the server infrastructure. This was much more enjoyable, as I enjoy interacting with individuals face to face and the clients seem to respond much better to a face rather than a voice.
There were two types of co-workers in this environment: those that showed up to excel and move on, and those that came to collect a pay check.
Manangement initially was difficult to work with because they were hired after the fact and didn't have much experience with the systems we had in place. After much training things settled after time and there was a healthy cohesion between the engineers and management.
LPN (Current Employee) – Mystic, CT – September 14, 2017
this is a horrible place to work. The management is terrible as well. they have a DNS who has relations with nurses and The scheduler is having relations with a nurse and she is married. Nighttime nurses are intoxicated on the job . they have 1 cna per floor at night, which means the residents are not getting changed or turned .
stressful and management does not appreciate or support employees
Physical Therapist, per diem (Former Employee) – Thornton, CO, and Boulder Co – August 25, 2017
there was a crazy amount of staff turnover due to stressful conditions, including unreasonable productivity expectations. The facility is not always clean or pleasant. There is lots of Medicaid, and difficult patients, who are not really good rehab candidates. Some of the staff are good, but they have lost lots of good therapists due to poor management.
there was a congenial staff in therapy before staff turnover, lots of windows and light in therapy room in Boulder
patients do not always have good rehab potential or motivation, Lots of pressure from management, I heard a doctor once refer to it as "chamber of horrors."
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Palisade, CO – August 23, 2017
It is hard to work for them, it doesn't seem like they are about their residents or the care the residents receive. employees are over worked because they seem to be under staffed. No team playing. seems to be just a business not residents home.
Health Care Provider (Former Employee) – Georgia – August 19, 2017
Turnover high. Favorotisim. Understaffed. Poor training. Poor morale. When reading these reviews, I am saddened. Those who suffer are residents. Health care should never put profits above patient care. It is not a cold hearted buisiness but the purpose is care and compassion for residents. The resident comes first.
The best part of my job here at Sava is the residents I get to take care of every day. They are more like family than a job. I would love a better benefits package and the opportunity to move up in the company.
Staff Accountant II (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – August 9, 2017
It was a very cheerful environment. Brightly colored walls, monthly birthday celebrations in the main lobby. They really focused on employee achievements and the employees in general. We all felt respected and valued. They were very nice people. I miss working there.
Nurse (Former Employee) – North Carolina – August 7, 2017
They brought in this interim DON from hades like seriously from hadesl!!! All she ever did was bully staff and be unrealistic about things. Ran decent staff away only wanted the staff to kiss her tale and bowdown to her. Her favorite saying was "i will report them to state" "that is abandonment" nobody wants to have to feel defensive every shift because they dont suck up to the DON!! weekend supervisor daytime is a psycho!! There are some good people on night shift that work mon tues and wed i miss them so much!
This was my ideal job as well. I worked hard to get the job and wroked hard to keep. The residents loved me and some only wanted me to deal with them. Sometimes they wroked excessive hours but i didnt mind
Social Services Assistant (Current Employee) – Greensboro, NC – June 24, 2017
I learned to provide Social Services through ambassadorship, conducting care plan meetings, providing medical clinics, conducting & coding various patient assessments, investigating & resolving grievances, and discharge planning.
I would say the hardest part of this job is watching those that you have become so attached to decline.
I most enjoy the friendly staff and the gratitude that residents and family pay you for providing outstanding care that they themselves cannot provide.
Friendly environment, opportunity to learn a variety of jobs.
I have been running skilled nursing centers for 17 years. I can honestly say the Sava Senior Care is the best company I have worked for to date. Sava has developed an employee culture program that far exceeds anything any other company I have worked for in the past. Wages are competitive, at least in my market. I don't know that there is a more compassionate elder care organization out there. The motto this year is "Do the Right Thing" and this company means it.
Care connection program for CNA's.
Working in a LTC has all the same cons. Sava mitigates those cons.
