Company took over when I left. Filed bankruptcy within a year
Director of Social Services (Former Employee) – Coeur d'Alene, ID – July 4, 2018
Very cutthroat business. Many people trying to stab others in the back as they tried to protect their own jobs. Very stressful environment. Company was sold from the previous owners and the new owners did not have the financial backing or the right employees in the management positions.
Enjoyed doing a good job
Employees and managers were so afraid of losing their jobs
LPN (Licensed Practical Nurse) (Current Employee) – Beloit, WI – May 12, 2018
Management staff is very helpful, and our new DON is fantastic. Everyone works together well to give the best possible care to our residents. We are making big changes at this facility, which starts with great employees.
Former Supervisor (Former Employee) – Beloit, WI – February 24, 2018
You only get raises if you are friends with or sleep with corporate management. Good loyal employees are not valued. There are some amazing staff there but the horrible ones that their union protect make it a place I would never put my family!! The good employees can't make up for the poor leadership in the building with an executive director and director of nursing that continue to stab each other in the back to make themselves look good. NO team atmosphere in this building because of their poor management styles. I feel so sad for the employees and more importantly the residents!!
Dietary Aide (Former Employee) – Traverse city michigan – January 12, 2018

Unsure (Former Employee) – Michigan – December 14, 2017
Very poor management. Concern and care for employees is very low. Instead of using situations as training and educational, they terminate. Very poor working situation. New executive director is AWEFUL!!!
Always short staffed, no concern for employees working conditions
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Coeur d'Alene, ID – November 20, 2017
Working at Lacrosse was stressful, fast paced, pressured and all around hectic. You would have 15-20 patients per aide, and sometimes 5-7 of them would need a Hoyer or 2 person transfer but finding your partner was sometimes nigh impossible to be able to do them safely.
Free lunch/dinner because the kitchen would make a soup pot for the staff
Understaffed, and over worked, underpaid for the work
RN Unit Manager (Current Employee) – Beloit, WI – September 25, 2017
Have worked for several months and saw people promoted to management positions solely based off of who they knew in upper management. There is constant bullying by staff towards others that is overlooked and encouraged by upper management. Complaints towards morale are overlooked and you are expected to do the job of 2 because staff don't stay because of treatment. Pay is excellent. That is the only benefit of working for this company. Nurses are allowed to bully other staff they don't like and get away with it. Drama and gossip is a favorite among staff here
Stressful , no team players, negative, toxic environment
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Oconomowoc, WI – September 24, 2017
vile, negative staff. Not team players. Sum wer ok Illegal shortcuts , creepy work environment . Nurses expect u to do illegal activities because they're lazy and Dont want do paperwork.although not all. My first day was met with so much negativity and other staff ripping g on others behind their backs in the break room. They were extremely vicious some cna even told me to run away cuz the place sucked and I would end up leaving. Lots of staff treat new people like they're a. Bunch of dummies, and have a hard time helping you out. Very sad to see so many people treating g others so poorly. I lasted 6 weeks and then found another job.
Culinary Assistant (Former Employee) – Wausau, WI – September 19, 2017
I loved working at Wausau Manor Nursing Home. I have nothing bad to say about the work that I did as a Dietary Aid. However, I worked there two years with awards of doing good work and not ever once got a single raise and the managers were either always busy or not in their office.
Loved the eldery that lived there, co workers, and the work.
