Management is not involved at all. There isn’t any room for advancement as all of the accounting staff are 50+. Unless you are close with Kelly they will find a way to push you out.
Pros
Pay was decent
Cons
Poor management

Not family-friendly! The company will run you into the ground. You will not see your family if you're a salaried employee. Super stressful work environment. Anywhere is better than here. Do not be fooled by the first three days.
Pros
None
Cons
Not a company you want to grow with

They made it seem like such a great place to work when I first started. I had planned to work here indefinitely, as I genuinely liked the routine with some flexibility.
But as soon as budgets cuts came rolling in; You, a lowly hard-working employee who is surviving off a measly 1600 dollars a month, gone. Typical corporation. Don't waste your time. Find a place that cares about you and your work.

The company’s leadership has shifted and changed, and not for the better. Once a group that was flawed but supportive, now is unrecognizable and a significant disappointment. Does not walk the walk of its own claimed culture any longer.

The ADMINISTRATIVE, DON AND NURSE. They are very clicky, if you don't do all the dirty work for them, they retaliate and let you go! The admin is racist and favors her own! They make someone who knows what isn't right take yhe fall for the one nurse who is favored! They don't like strong nurses, they want puppets! It's always you against them!

Poor management and toxic culture. There are many other companies out there that have higher standards and morals.
One of the many concerns that disgusted me, too many to list, was when I witnessed two employees making fun of a handicapped individual who was actually one of our nurses. These are the same people that are

supposed to be advocating for people

that have struggles. I found that low character was common in the community, so I quit after three months.

No management support. As soon as a family was unhappy the management company looked for a fall guy and they put numbers above cares or programming. Watermark gives too much power to their Executive Directors and allows them to act in their behalf in falsely accusing employees to satisfy families that are upset at not getting their way. They act in fear of a false review versus good cares and the truth.

Med tech pay is under 16$ per hour !! they ask your salary requirements as if they are any where close and invite you for a interview knowing they can’t afford to pay you even close to what you’re asking . They should disclose that before having people rush in for a second interview wasting everyone’s time.

Very thorough training. Culture feels like a family and values their associates.
Our Executive Director makes sure that we are on track and communicates regularly and effectively. She truly cares about her associates!

I was welcomed into the company and given the tools needed to make my job successful for me personally and for the company. We worked together daily to provide an extraordinary environment for the resident to grow and thrive.

Despite self sacrifice and extraordinary results, new "leadership" with their own agenda can minimize and dismiss those sacrifices and results. Committed to the bottom line for themselves, these new "leaders" care nothing about what once made the company a positive environment. Those days are long over, never to return.

The residents here are wonderful and truly appreciate everything you do for them. But the ED is a bully to employees and directors she doesn't like. Quick to point out when she doesn't think someone is doing their job, but everyone is supposed to overlook her clique of mgmt friends that hang out in her office braiding each other's hair. The Dir of Nursing is a young girl in over her head, that lacks leadership skills. The Sales Dir treats residents like dirt once she gets them in the door. The Community Life Dir passes all her work off to her assistants, is so disorganized, but thinks she knows everything, and never misses the chance to remind you she's in charge. The amount of turnover at this place is crazy, but nothing is ever done about it. Think twice before coming to work here.

This is a good job for people who are just starting out. The are very helpful and it is very easy to make friends. This job does not have the best safety circumstances and can be a little dangerous as management does not do there job to keep the place safe all the time.
Pros
Great place to work, nice people, great pace.
Cons
Safety hazards, some rude people.
