    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I believe that there is a very supportive work environment. They believe that employees come first and it shows! This philosophy translates to better performance from staff which residents see and appreciate.

    Cons

    Training can always be enhanced but overall Aegis works hard to make it happen with quality effort.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to protect the culture that the company was founded on.

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've never worked harder in my life, but I love coming to work each day. My residents and my team feel like family, and I truly enjoy being with them daily. I like that no two days are ever the same. There have been various challenges throughout the years, but I do feel like hard work, talent, and passion have been recognized and rewarded, and the company has been increasing it's efforts in this area. It's not a job you can do half-way. You have to pour your heart out to be successful, but working with other driven, passionate people is what gives me the energy to come to work each day.

    Cons

    In the past, I do feel that the company struggled with adequately supporting staff in their roles. More recently, I have seen huge strides made in improving the support and appreciation given to staff at all levels.
    Due to the nature of the industry, days can be long at times.

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I wish I would have joined Aegis years ago. I have the opportunity everyday to do something that matters in this world and really makes a difference in people's lives. Aegis also compensates well and offers good benefits so I can take care of my family. The company is managed well and offers career opportunities. It's also a really fun place to work.

    Cons

    It is tough to see residents and families go through such difficult scenarios.

    I have been working at Aegis Living as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    There's a strong sense of mission here. Aegis Living is a thought leader in the assisted living industry. I noticed that KING 5's "Evening Magazine" ranked Aegis Living as the Best Place to work in Western Washington. That meant a lot to me in choosing where to apply. They're not afraid to try new ideas and innovate. Senior leadership seems interested in constructive feedback. There's a strong corporate culture here. People seem to like working here. You can tell by the tenor of water cooler conversations. I could stay here for a while.

    Cons

    I'm willing to provide something negative to balance this review but I just haven't found anything. It's a good place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay passionate. CEO Dwayne Clarke literally wrote the book on the personal toll that Alzheimer's and dementia takes on family members in "My Mother My Son." I'd just ask Dwayne and others in senior leadership to stay the course and keep innovating. It's rare you find a CEO who believes in his service as much as Clarke does.

    I have been working at Aegis Living full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Good medical, great coworkers, enjoy time with residents, great lil benes-$1 meal etc, seems to really work at pleasing families

    Cons

    Admin doesn't keep his word- promised staff certain amount to do 1:1 with needy resident then after a few weeks of very hard work by employees he says: OH SORRY ONLY time and a half-nothing I can do. UNTRUE.
    SEVERAL ROOMS HAVE BEDBUGS & their dragging their feet getting rid of them, just sprayed, now reappeared and still biting residents.
    Frankly I'm disgusted.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider honoring and respecting employees and keep your word. Respect residents enough to stop the infestations, just leads to poor care.

    Pros

    Employee focused, uncompromised resident services and care, innovative with focus on what works. Trail blazer, leader in assisted living and memory care.

    Cons

    I Don't know if there any. Personally, I hope the founder/CEO will continue to guide the company and oversee the planned/anticipated grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus on reasonable grows of the company.
