Management (Current Employee) – Niantic Ct. – March 22, 2013
False promise's and poor management. The Admistrater makes the rules up as she goes. Let me ask you this. How can you have a Dietary manager that's sleeps with his staff and gets called out for being drunk on the job still continue to work here. WHAT!!! Stay away from this company they support the bad and don't even want to here about the concerns you may have about these kind of situations. Not even if it was the last job on earth is this place worth working for. RUN!
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.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – June 6, 2017
Total and complete lack of leadership, vision, planning and execution. Amazing CEO who deserves much better. A great place for third party firms to stalk. They hemorrhage cash because the majority of their recruiting team is awful and the hiring managers in the field are totally frustrated.
The best long-term care company I have worked for in 17 years.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Plano, TX 75075 – June 2, 2017
The best long-term care company I have worked for in 17 years. Sava has outstanding employee cultural programs. There are excellent opportunities to advance for those who are willing to put in the effort. Pay rates are very competitive on all levels. I am very fortunate in my region that we have outstanding regional support. I would highly recommend getting into this Company, if you can.
competitive pay. Great ownership . Outstanding support structures to facilitate success.
Special Resident Care (Former Employee) – GA – May 16, 2017
The top managements are great but they have no clue what's going on there. The night supervisors are bullies & very mean. They're always short staffed & the residents suffer that. There's a lot of favoritism going on there, you have to kiss there behinds all the time. They don't appreciate good workers & even when a resident compliments you, they wave it off.
Can't think of any but they're still good passionate ones.
They just don't care about the CNA's or the residents as they imply. The breaks are not actual.
Director of Nursing (Former Employee) – Burbank, IL – May 16, 2017
I learned daily in my position and grew professionally. I enjoyed going to work each day, the people I worked with were like a second family to me. I had resources at my hand whenever I had any issues. I will be always grateful for the opportunity I had working with Sava.
The hardest part of working for Sava Senior Care was administration/DON turnover. During the time I was employed there I had approx. 2 regular DON's in about 1 year period. The rest of the time interim Acting DON's lasting about 6 to 8 weeks. This making constant changing and confusion. Very clickish.
Administrator (Current Employee) – Fort Worth, TX – April 12, 2017
I have worked for Sava Senior Care for several years and I have always been treated with kindness, respect, and support. After working for other national long term care companies I can honestly say that all employees in Sava have a voice. The programs for staff are outstanding. The President/CEO of the company always listens, CNA's have a council where they go to Atlanta once a year and share ideas with the CEO/President of the company. All healthcare companies have their challenges but I have always been treated well...when I'm having a successful run and even when I'm struggling with a challenge that affects my performance. The company encourages a balance between personal and professional life more than any company around. I feel that this company cheers me on and really wants to see me be successful. I can't say enough good things about Sava Senior Care.
Positive Culture, support, and kindness from top to bottom
the expected stress when working in long term care
Employee (Current Employee) – Rather not say – March 23, 2017
Never worked in such a negative environment as is here. Management daily threatens to write you up for anything and everything they can think of. Its scary coming to work, you will get degraded and disrespected regardless of how hard you work. Worst job ever, no team work, no job security, and no respect for their employees.
Director of Admissions (Former Employee) – Wilmington, NC – February 20, 2017
The overall experience with this company was that we are expected to spend 80% of the time in the field in front of referral sources, yet a majority of your week is spent on conferences calls regarding WHY you aren't building referral source relationships.
LPN (Former Employee) – Pleasant Prairie, WI – February 16, 2017
Difficult for nursing to complete work assignment on an 8 HR shift, you have at times 35 residents to one nurse, you are responsible to do wound care treatments that at times take 35-40 min. to complete, often you do not have time to take a lunch break, and administration expects you to complete charting, also no help with admissions that generally take 3-4 hours to complete due to interruptions, there is no receptionist, calls go to rehab unit where the floor nurse has to handle all calls on top of everything else, not to mention short staff and frequent call-ins.
Often have 50 patients with two aids, work on the rehab unit so patients are more demanding and require more time and attention. Have to start last dry round at 430am and patients don't get checked again till after breakfast which is sometimes after 9:00 am!
Love my patients
Wish I could spend more time caring for a patient but have to rush to get done!
I love the patients, they all have my heart. Management sucks and don't care about anyone but them selves they don't care if you're short and show favoritism, the more unprofessional you are the better it seems. That is the reason they always got a sign out front they are frequently hiring. Anyone with any sense doesn't stay there long
Management could care less about you. Unprofessional environment. Poor pay.
RN Charge Nurse (Former Employee) – Birmingham, AL – December 21, 2016
If they call you for an interview, just say no. Manamagent is weak, Mostly staffed by agency nurses because regular nurses have walked out. Reprehensible work demands. Insurance not company, negotiated rates through the marketplace and premiums.
Enjoyable place to work, great residents, families, co-workers.
Part Time Receptionist (Former Employee) – Germantown, WI – December 2, 2016
A typical day at work was taking phone calls and transferring them, or providing information to callers, admitting new residents into the computer, discharging residents, setting up resident trust accounts for residents, receiving and distributing mail, giving a tour of the facility, especially to walk-ins, filing, assembling new resident folders, and making sure welcome baskets were available for new residents. I learned a lot about the whole nursing home culture, and working with a lot of different people (management, aides, nurses, residents, and their families.) I enjoyed being of assistance to co-workers (available to do projects for them whenever needed). My supervisor was amazing--was always available to answer questions, assist whenever needed (even on weekends), personable to everyone, and always a back-up for us. The hardest part was when residents had to leave, the most enjoyable parts were residents and their families as you got to know them well, and they were always happy to see a smiling face and sometimes words of comfort.
The people I worked with, great atmosphere to work in.
Sales (Current Employee) – Maryland – October 28, 2016
Very, Very, POOR culture for employees. There will be many openings in the near future as the whole sales team is looking to move on. It's one thing to have goals but another to try to meet the goals when the facilities deliver poor care.
It's a paycheck
limited unreasonable bonus. NEW COO pretends culture, and respect are important however its not the truth. Very unethical company to work for, never used to be that way.
Therapist (Former Employee) – Henderson, NV – October 13, 2016
Avoid this company if you can. They will hire you as full time then only have part time hours leading to a loss in benefits. They want to push a caseload which dosent exhist or have you keep on patients which are not appropriate.
