Pros: love working with the elderly
Cons: management is the worse i have ever seen!
Terrible place to work! Turnover is extremely high amongst the staff of the interdisciplinary team:3 site managers, 3 directors of social work, 2 directors of activities and 2 nurses in less than 1 yr. Entire social work department changed over 3 times in past yr. Management sets workers up to fail through lack of adequate training and insufficient staff and then retaliates against staff for failure to follow policy/ procedure and time frames for service delivery. Communication is extremely POOR, mostly due to inadequate staff. Lack of support amongst coworkers, Some undermining amongst coworkers mostly by one person. Bottom of the barrel morale amongst employees. Questionable ethics from management. If your standards are high you will not be comfortable here. Work environment continues to deteriorate. Anyone who can is looking to get out! Due to management style, day is crisis oriented in work production. Work salary staff to death. Plan to work 60+ hours per work week to meet management’s expectations and to keep from drowning in the overload of work due to inadequate staff. Why hire adequate staff if you can bully your workers into doing it without pay? Management turnover has left center in constant chaos as new hires reinterpret policy and procedures and redirect staff, who are often left undoing/redoing same tasks at direction of site manager. The only enjoyable part of the job is the participants. Of course when you are dealing with the public expect that some clientele are manipulative and not entirely honest. Know that management will not back you.
