Would not recommend
Rehabilitation Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INApril 12, 2018
Benefits are not good, pay is low, workplace culture is hostile and unfriendly. No teamwork or communication in the building among employees. Management does not listen or care about employees.

CarDon is a great company
Executive Director (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 29, 2018
The company is a family-owned business with fair practices and incredible people. I have enjoyed my time serving others as a CarDon associate. I feel they have a genuine concern for their associates.

CNA/Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMarch 14, 2018
When I first started working there I didn’t like it at first probably because it was a little different to what I was use to but after a while I started liking it. If I was certified I would go back.

Atrocious company to work for!
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INMarch 7, 2018
DON'T DO IT! You have been duly warned!
This is the most uncaring, cold, ruthless management I have ever encountered in over 20 years in healthcare. They don't give a whit about you as a person. You are just a worthless worker for them. They have no Scruples about treating you anyway in any time even without any justification and, as their excuse, they will claim that you are hired at will .
I have over 20 years of healthcare experience, I have an outstanding work record and no history of problems with my employers, but this one, I assure you, over time you will find it impossible to work for. And that is because the management of this company does not care about you or about the patients, but they care about is lining their pockets.
Pros
None
Cons
Everything!

Interim Unit Manager/Registered Nurse/Charge Nurse (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INFebruary 7, 2018
This is a great work environment, management encourages team work and helping you to build upon your profession. This is a great place to work for both a "seasoned nurse" and a brand new nurse new to the nursing profession.

Terrible culture, terrible employment and business practices, under the foot of tyrannical management
Manager (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INFebruary 4, 2018
Employees are expected to work long hours and are treated very poorly. As a result the workplace culture is is not pleasant, and morale is very low. Many employees are completely miserable but need their income so they try to get through it. Management does not value input from employees and does not address employee concerns. Employees are made to feel like they are expendable and treated as such with no appreciation for anything they do. It is very broken and good people pay the price.

Understaffed and employee’ s are treated unfairly if your not in the managers click
LPN Unit Manager (Former Employee) –  Richmond, INDecember 28, 2017
If you aren’t in the upper management’ click than they will make your job very hard and stressful on you so that you will up and leave and/or Quit. The pay is good but there is always shortage in staff and you have to work long hours.
Pros
Good pay
Cons
Management are two faced and bully’s

Census driven under-staffing
Unit Manager/LPN (Current Employee) –  IndianaDecember 13, 2017
Nursing - Nurses and CNAs are not individuals at Copper Trace. No regard to acuity versus census when staffing. Staff blamed for mistakes when not enough help. Often nursing has to do dining work, while nursing needs required bc of lack of kitchen staff.
A typical day in rehab is exhausting and completely dangerous to patients who require treatments, medications, special attention, due to admits, discharges, high acuity at all times.
Shifts are cut to save money when low census on rehab, even though other units are full.
Company should have HUGE income, yet they treat employees like they are penny pinching. It's terribly stressful for staff.
Pros
Dementia unit allows for time to get to know your patient
Cons
Other units allow no time for breaks, thinking about patient as individual

Hard work here. Not always appreciated.
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Bloomington, INDecember 12, 2017
I worked in assisted living area of the community. It was very hard but rewarding. The patients tend to be demanding and think of staff as privately hired servants at times. Some of the patients should be in the nursing home as they have so many needs but pay to stay here. The acuity level is way too high for being AL.
Staff is friendly and direct upper management is great. Some nurses are inflexible and try to run the show if they have been there a long time or have personal issues.
We lost a great DON because of one of them.
There are always problems finding good workers, just like other places, they don't want to stay. The pace is not as bad as at the skilled care or long term care areas.
The big guns have no idea what home care is supposed to be and have no way to help. They keep applying LTC regs to HHC in assisted living and slow down progress.
Pros
Great meals, supportive direct management.
Cons
Corporate doesn't get it. Staffing issues.

The Company Culture is Less than Desireable
Miscellaneous (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INOctober 5, 2017
I was so excited by the opportunity I ignored some of the early warning signs......Leadership had poor leadership skills, depending on your dept. you were made to feel unimportant, and the company is dysfunctional. The pay is mediocre. Do your homework......Also there is no work life balance.
Cons
Company Culture, pay, and management

Great residents and co-workers, poor management
Dietary Aid (Former Employee) –  IndianaSeptember 12, 2017
Management does not listen to employees concerns. Employees are not receiving enough training to properly do their jobs. Schedules change randomly without asking or notifying people. The job may be to keep the residents happy, but unhappy employees aren't going to stick around for long.

Poor upper management!
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Lyons, INAugust 7, 2017
Would not recommend as place of employment or facility to place loved one! Poor upper management. Not enough on the job training for new employees before you're placed on schedule with your own assignment!

Loved the residence
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Greenwood, INJuly 28, 2017
Always need more employees on the floor to give better than limited care. They deserve the best and nothing less. Had plenty of good memories working for 2 facilities.

Save yourself the trouble and stress
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Greenwood, INApril 28, 2017
Short staffed. Hire good people, then work them to death and they leave. Very high turnover. Burn out. Poor patient care due to under staffing, poor staffing (putting people on a unit to work just to have a warm body). High patient load. Often don't get breaks. Ask for help with staffing to actually give good care and met with stonefaced looks. Management only cares about the bottom line and how things LOOK to State, not how they actually are. Management daily goes over charting and will make recommendations on retroactive changes to be made so it looks better. Lousy food. Facility I was at for less than a year went through 3 DONs and 2 Administrators. Almost everyone I had been hired in with had left by the time I did. Job culture: it's all about the money. Health insurance not worth a dime.
Pros
none
Cons
just about everything
