401k Analyst (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – April 2, 2018
Some management use very outdated techniques, but they are catching up with modern times. Top of the line benefits and pay but very little room for advancement in many areas. Be sure to ask about career path if that is what you are interested in.
Executive Assistant (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – August 13, 2018
I loved working there and was disappointed when my position was eliminated due to budget cuts. I worked on my own as well as part of a team effort. My skillset and creativity were utilized and appreciated. I worked for several Executives, so my daily duties were always varied. I extensively coordinated travel, business meetings, luncheon events, entertainment events, etc. I also initiated electronic data management, and several other office procedures.
Accounts Payable Specialist (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – May 24, 2018
Promises of promotion and advancement, but when the time comes, someone else gets it. When taking concerns to HR, you’re ignored and told the manager is “Justified and has reason to react in unprofessional ways.”
Overall a very hostile, stressful company to work for, many hours of overtime expected, but not enough work to fill said hours.
Regional management is about promoting themselves not working with team.
Manager (Former Employee) – United States – April 30, 2018
LCS management is about promoting themselves, charging their clients and minimal to no hands on with communities. LCS has a mentality that the communities and owners work for them not the way the contracts read.
Great company to work for- competitive environment but overall very satisfied at LCS
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – March 21, 2018
I started in LCS a PDP, I work in Minneapolis and when to New Mexico to open a new community. I enjoyed the opportunities to move to different states. Although I was a PDP, I already had experience managing assisted living, and I acted more as an interim ED than a PDP. I left LCS because I wanted to advance much quicker than what LCS can offer me at that time.
Accounting Assistant (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – February 28, 2018
When I first started, it went well but then they “re-structured” and promoted managers who were under experienced and did not know how to train. Power went to some of their heads which made work difficult and caused many headaches.
Sales Associate (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – January 6, 2018
You do NOT want to work at this company. Look somewhere else. Nothing with this company is as it seems, or as they say. The management team are only in it for themselves and will lie to you and everyone else to get their bonuses. Bonuses that "management" only gets. And yes, it comes off the back of all the true worker bees. Run and never look back. You do not want to put yourself through the turmoil and back stabbing that goes on in this "home office".
Consultant (Current Employee) – Remote – October 26, 2017
LCS is a great company. In my experience, I have met some great people all over the country that work in different LCS owned or managed properties. We serve the residents with dignity and respect and customer service is one of our number one priorities. I truly believe each person who works at LCS has a passion to help our senior population live full and productive lives.
Education opportunities, great people
No or very limited career advancement opportunities.
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Open – August 23, 2017
LCS could be a great company to work for, however their Regional Management Team is nothing short of a joke. There is no objectivity with the Regional Team and they absolutely DO NOT support the Executive Director. They totally trash the Owner group and then act totally amazed when it is brought up. Worst experience I've even had in a working environment. Beautiful community -- the residents deserve far more!
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Florida – August 16, 2017
I worked at LCS and enjoyed the structure. Unfortunately some of the senior management are very unethical and unprofessional but this does not smudge my opinion of the company's day to day professionals that work had.
Great Regional Team
Vice President Level Executives in the Rental Division
Unethical company does not support executives and leadership
Executive Director (Current Employee) – Florida – August 1, 2017
The most difficult day was interacting with regional directors. Disrespectful to leadership team at the communities. They frequently lied to owners and corp re issues. Worst place to work in 20 years employment. How do they get away with lying to owners The community was beautiful but that was because of owners not this management company. Great residents and staff (until the regionals treated them so poorly and they got frustrated with them) I had to do a lot of clean up overtime they left. Like the tazmania devil when corp came in.
Finance Analyst (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – May 8, 2017
They really care about their employees. They have activities to help keep moral up. Fund raising such as United Way and Alzheimer's research are made fun with variance activities planned out by thoughtful committees.
NYHR Assistant Internship (Former Employee) – Brooklyn, NY – July 3, 2016
I got great experience working with people from different, authoritative culture and ethnic background, and I have learned a lot dealing with a little conflict and getting solutions. It was really important experience.
Impossible to be accepted by authoritarian team, felt myslef outsider
