Poor work environment, low morale.
Health Care Worker (Former Employee) – Topeka, KS – July 6, 2016
After working for Presbyterian Manors of Mid-America in Topeka, KS, I would not recommend employment with this company.
This company is more concerned with staying in 'budget' than the direct care that their residents receive. When there are staffing cuts, it's always to the staff that directly cares for the residents.
There is an excess of management at this facility. The management staff are not friendly, and rarely come out of their offices, unless State inspectors are in the building, or there is an employee that needs reprimanded.
They cannot keep employees, because the pay is not competitive with most other long term care homes in Topeka, and the health benefits are too expensive to afford for a family on the low wages being paid. From what I was told by some of the veteran employees, the few perks that used to be offered, ie... free lunches, company Christmas party, paid inservice day yearly, have all been stripped as a benefit, leaving little to nothing offered as a positive.
The management certainly will not appreciate you in any way, as they can't even be bothered to offer you a kind word when you're doing a good job!
There just isn't any reward for working here, other than the residents that appreciate and love you.
The amazing residents, any other 'pro' to employment has been stripped from the staff
High resident to staff ratio, large corporation with values that are not always 'resident' centered, more concerned with 'budget' than resident care, poor staff morale.
