Tech Support Specialist (Former Employee) – Sterling, VA – February 26, 2014
A typical day in the Service Desk here consisted of back to back phone calls from the moment you login to your phone til its time to leave.
Since this this position specifically for myself was dual role, I provided on site support as well as maintaining some of the server infrastructure. This was much more enjoyable, as I enjoy interacting with individuals face to face and the clients seem to respond much better to a face rather than a voice.
There were two types of co-workers in this environment: those that showed up to excel and move on, and those that came to collect a pay check.
Manangement initially was difficult to work with because they were hired after the fact and didn't have much experience with the systems we had in place. After much training things settled after time and there was a healthy cohesion between the engineers and management.
Dirty, outdated, and poorly managed. High turn over of staff. I would not put a dog in these facilities and trust that they would be ok. Therapy is a factory for obtaining minutes to make the company as much as possible with little regard to the patient’s well being. No incentives to work harder or better yourself as a clinician. I was physically getting ill prior to my departure. The high stress levels raised my blood pressure and I developed acid reflux. The rehab staff was good, but all the good nurses moved on because patient care became mission impossible. Sava was once a decent company, but has fallen victim to an ever deteriorating health care system. Thanks Obamacare.
Good team of rehabilitation staff
High stress. Poor working conditions. Just a cog in the machine.
Executive Director (Former Employee) – KS – March 22, 2019
Great organization to work for. I felt valued. Excellent compensation and achievable incentive program. Great regional support. Excellent policies and supportive data. Culture is positive and uplifting. Very supportive staff.
Excellent organizarion and knowledgeable senior management team.
Overall i enjoyed my job. Its a very fast. Paced environment..Got to keep up.. The turn around for employees is low.. More like a family environment.. Every place has that ONE employee... Every place has issues..But i feel all issues were handled promptly and fairly..Benefits are good..Pay is decent.
CERTIFIED NURSE AID (Former Employee) – Danville, VA – March 13, 2019
We had to learn to work with patients with all kinds of sickness. We also worked with patient so they cam get back to walking, doing things for theirself again. Also showing them love. The most enjoyable part about the job is working with older people specifically if you love elder people
Business Office Manager (Former Employee) – Annapolis, MD – March 8, 2019
I could not have said it better than this review, “Lack of training, knowledge hording, in order to make themselves look superior, very clickish, questionable ethic in upper management, one way communication“ Upper management had a way of making you feel very uncomfortable and “beneath them.”
Admin and DOR need to be replaced. Focus on cost cutting to the detriment of food service and housekeeping . Too many patients per nurse, too many restrictions on supplies needed to care for residents.
Poor nursing, Poot budget management, no advancement, Poor hours, high census low staffing
This company is an absolute atrocity! The management had no idea what was going on with the patients we never had any supplies, the communication was terrible and the patient care suffered because of it! I felt my license was in jeopardy because the amount of patients they gave us and the high acuity of the patients was unbelievable and unsafe! I would have a lot of patients with behaviors as well as Fall risks etc and they were never willing to help! They could never keep nurses because they were unprofessional and they talked to their staff any kind of way! Do yourself a favor and stay far away from this place! It’s a lawsuit waiting to happen.
CNA - Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Rome, GA – February 17, 2019
Management has gone down, they get rid of the best employees and keep the bad ones that just sit around on there phones like the nurses do because they’re too lazy to pass out meds, or they personally take them. Most CNA’s are rude to the residents and man handle them. One side is supposed to be rehab and the administration only cares about numbers so both sides have become total care and they don’t realize it because they’re never on the floor offering help. They only care of the beds are full and food. The unit managers couldn’t care about anything as long as you don’t come in there office and bug them. I see the awards on the wall every morning when I walk in, but still don’t see how we got them. Majority of the faculty don’t care, when administrators don’t care the CNA’s don’t care and now our building looks like pure garbage because no one seems to care.
LVN Nurse (Current Employee) – Tx – February 2, 2019
Your job & your life is what you make of it. Don't be negative. Stay positive! The resident's of our Snf/Ltc units deserve our respect & diligence. Commit to excellence! I've been with our Snf/Ltac for 18 yrs...14 with Sava. Good times & in want...plant that seed of faith/positivity/& encouragement to our God 1st ..then resident's 2nd ..then our co-workers. Stay positive!
Special Project Manager (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – January 29, 2019
Company leadership is built off the buddy system, there are many leadership roles filled with folks that demonstrate unprofessional conduct and it's never addressed timely or fairly by executive team which creates legal concerns for organization, which leads to repeat layoffs. Job commitment or tender with company is not a factor of how you are termed. many team members have work with superior service for over 15-35 years whom continue to be laid off for an unqualified buddy or family member, and friend to fill the role for less pay. Over all if you are not part of the BUDDY system you will be very uncomfortable until company RESPECT ALL their employed regardless of their job titles. A TEAM make the dream work (TEAM)
However, It's not a bad place to work! Career growth is avaiable in orginazation.
Flex work schedule
Lack of respect, between leadership team and team members
Fulltime Managed Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Houston, TX – January 19, 2019
Sava is a Great Place to work, I really enjoyed working with the managed care team, My Supervisor was very understanding easy to work with. Unfortunately the Job Security is low you do not know if your coming or going, but a great place to gain experience.
Nursing (Current Employee) – Newport, TN – January 19, 2019
I have worked for this company for 10+ years, and have seen an amazing difference in staffing and management in the last year. The staffing is better than ever and New management have truly made a difference. No matter the level of education they have, the staff is always willing to help. House keeping is better than ever, each resident is taking care of in a loving, respectful manner. You don’t just feel like an employee but FAMILY! To me that’s important to have people willing to cry and laugh with you, they don’t just look at you when you’re down they help lift you up. Truly an amazing building with the best staff ever! Truly blessed!
Co-workers become family, residents are family.
new staff want to complain about things, and quit without bringing it to the table to discuss. New ideas are always appreciate.
