LIFE Beaver truly cares about their employees. They have new management in place that is making a difference. it's good hours and not as hard as a nursing home.
Pros
new management
Cons

Best nursing home to work at but..
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Zelienople, PAFebruary 14, 2018
The staff can be worse than high school girls, especially daylight staff. You can move around as many jobs as you want after 6 months, unless they do not like you. They will make up a b.s. excuse as to why you aren't getting the position or just not tell you hoping you find another job and quit. Aside from that the supervisors are great and very understanding, the nurses and aides that were "cool" have quit or went casual because of the b.s. or daylight staff.
Pros
The residents, some staff
Cons
No longer a christmas bonus, daylight staff, poor management

Stay Away From This Place!!
Maintenance Technician (Former Employee) –  PennsylvaniaFebruary 7, 2018
I recently left Lutheran Senior Life and the local, regional and upper management is extremely poor. They have no clue what they're doing. They put the blame on the lowly employees.
The pay and benefits are HORRIBLE!
I was there nine years and got a total 50 cents raise in the entire time and I was a good, faithful employee.
Fair warning: DO NOT TAKE A JOB HERE!!!
Pros
None
Cons
You name it - there are many!

Stressful and Unforgiving
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Mars, PAFebruary 7, 2018
The residents are wonderful, all of them are unique and grateful. Staffing is and issue along with the fact that everyone talks about everyone. There's employees that like to store the pot and push away the good workers.

CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Mars, PAJanuary 5, 2018
Management was terrible!!!! They always had people leaving, they could never hold onto the good workers. Some of those nurses were horrible, treated everyone like they were nothing. Definitely one of the worst places to work!

Lack of communication from superiors
driver/helper (Former Employee) –  Rochester, PAOctober 7, 2017
Applied to this company and had an interview and drive experience delivering meals. Please with number of hours and salary but never heard back from management after phone calls and emails to the appropriate people. not a nice way to be treated as an applicant. Not upset about not getting the job - just upset that no one ever let me know one way or another.

Unappreciated and very stressful
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Aliquippa, PASeptember 27, 2017
The mission of this company is amazing for the elderly. But being an employee here is very hard. Management is never there when you need them. When you address them with problems or issues they are ignored and never get resolved. Very unorganized, lack of common sense and do not value good workers. They overwork their employees causing them to quit. A lot of favoritism. Constant drama! This is the only place I have ever worked for that does not show any care when family or personal emergencies occur.
Pros
Helping elderly who really appreciate the help
Cons
Poor management, unorganized, drama, constantly talked to and treated like a child, pay, constant driving and ruining your car.

Disorganized
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Beaver, PASeptember 10, 2017
This company has a great mission for the participants but very very disorganized. You as a nurse are micromanage to the max. You spend a lot of time in pointless meetings rather than caring for your clients. On a weekly basis more and more jobs are added to the nurse. This company is very short staffed. You are not respected as a nurse. I have never worked for a company that is as big of a train wreck as this one. The staff turn around is unreal and it's a'll related to management. You are not permitted to work autonomously as a nurse.
Pros
The clients
Cons
Manager

Used to be a wonderful place to work, no longer is.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) –  Zelienople, PAAugust 25, 2017
Residents are great people who deserve so much more! Management is awful! They are always right , therefore, you are always wrong, but will look you in your face and say they want your opinion...but they actually dont. Taking everything they are able to from the employees, until it just isn't worth it anymore.
Pros
Not sure if there are any.
Cons
To be treated with disrespect.

Profit is the bottom line
General (Current Employee) –  Zelienople, PAJune 28, 2017
For a non profit organization it's all about money. They will change your job description without notice and you are expected to smile and agree. If you don"t you have a bad attitude or you are out of a job. Management is poor. Company goal was to work on employee retention but it seems like they have been working on this for years. Turn over is high.
Pros
Great reidents
Cons
Poor management

Caring Organization
Administration (Current Employee) –  Mars, PAApril 20, 2017
Working at Lutheran SeniorLife is very rewarding. Being part of an organization committed to helping those in and around the community where we live is part of what attracted me to apply here. Working in healthcare things are always changing, no two days are the same but I wouldn't have it any other way.

The team atmosphere is wonderful, everyone pitches in to get the job and we put the patients first!
Pros

Great Organization
Caregiver (Former Employee) –  Zelienople, PAApril 16, 2017
Abundant life is more than a tag line for this organization. It's what they want for their residents and participants. There are long-term employees who truly care about the residents they serve. There is opportunity to grow in the organization. Is it tough work? Yes, but it is rewarding and you do good things for the residents there. At the end of the day I always felt good about the work I did there. It may not pay as much as other organizations because it is non-profit. But they don't throw out residents who can no longer pay to stay there. You make a difference here!
Pros
What you do makes a difference.

Honest opinion
Nurse (Former Employee) –  NursingJanuary 2, 2017
Stress is beyond belief. Family and residents are angels. CNA are the hardest working people anywhere, that I have ever seen. And one thing they are consistent about is the zero tolerance of resident abuse.
Pros
Coworkers
Cons
Unrealistic management

Great Corporate Culture
Anonymous (Current Employee) –  Mars, PAJune 6, 2016
I left a very large hospital network to come work for this organization. I am so happy that I did and have not looked back ONCE! The corporate leadership truly cares about their staff and are unwilling to compromise the integrity of the company, their staff, or themselves to try to get ahead. The amount of programs and benefits that the company is able to offer to those which they serve is staggering. I am so blessed to have found a team that functions with such integrity and passion towards caring for others.
Pros
Great culture that is innovative and always developing!
