Terribly managed company
Manager (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON20 April 2017
Expectations are astronomical and pay is far less than a position with much less responsibility in the public system. Expectations to be on call 24/7 with little to no money for staff and budgeting to run a building that should be five star. Non-stop complaints from residents that are paying huge sums of money. Corporate has placed the management in these buildings in a position to fail by providing zero budget. Terrible place to work. Most managers only work to gain the experience and then leave - leading to a revolving door syndrome.
Pros
Staff and managers who are working hard to attempt to keep company afloat.
Cons
Everything else!

Reception (Current Employee) –  North York, ON17 April 2017
Management tries their best to keep employees happy: however, because its unionize employees that are better workers don't get the opportunity to advance and excel in their abilities and skills. now enough growth and opportunities within the company if you are a good worker because they want to hold on to the better workers.
Pros
you can talk to management one one one
Cons
not enough meetings for staff

Terrible place to work, not client centred!
Personal Support Worker (Former Employee) –  Renfrew, ON30 March 2017
Terrible place, when providing care for people you want to work for a company that cares as well. In my eyes Revera does not care about their employees and/or clients. I would say some of the psw's care, but when you go to upper management they are all paper pushers and just hacking away waiting for their day to end. Very unorganized.
Pros
Met some wonderful clients in my community
Cons
all around horrible place to work

Not the greatest place to work
Technical Support Analyst (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, ON22 March 2017
If you are starting out in health/elderly care this place is ok to get experience. Not the best pay unless you work higher up in executive offices. Most of the execs are overpaid and treat the company as if it's their own to do with.

Encouraging Environment meant to allow employees advance and learn.
Communications Intern (Former Employee) –  Mississauga, ON21 March 2017
In August of 2016, I interned at Revera Inc. with their communications team. The internship was designed to allow interns to explore different divisions (external PR, internal communications, Innovations division etc.) We were responsible for small jobs (putting together statements for the company's internal website, creating excel spreadsheets on Revera's homes, PowerPoint presentations) and were given the opportunity to sit in on communication team meetings. It was an amazing opportunity in an environment that fostered and encouraged growth and personal incentive in its employees

too heavy workload
Nurse (Former Employee) –  Ottawa, ON17 March 2017
you dont get a meal break just go straight to 8 hours without break, otherwise the tasks cannot be done within your shift.

it is busy but seldom learn anything new or valuable. it is not full scope of practice. not a good place to learn new things. Too many residents for medication pass.

pay rate is too low.
Pros
8 hour unit shift, no travel
Cons
low pay, heavy workload, too much"dirty" work

Brutal management, understaffed, lovely residents
Dietary Aide/Cook (Former Employee) –  Saskatoon, SK13 March 2017
residents are terrific like they usually are, and it's a pleasure to be in their home, but the management is not worth it. they do not care for any staff other than management themselves and they don't care if you quit they don't value anyone, everyone is replaceable. concerns are not heard or they are dismissed or else swept under the rug. the amount of work you have to do is not equivalent to the amount of time you have. you can be perfect in every way but still would never be treated the way an employee should be treated.
Pros
Food, great coworkers
Cons
Missed breaks, low pay, hard on the body

Hit and miss
Manager (Former Employee) –  Mississauga5 March 2017
Revera is very hit and miss at their support office. There are great people and some wonderful managers but too much inconsistency and preferential treatment in work/life balance and job security. Very high turnover and lack of commitment to strategy means a lot of knee jerk reactions and long lapses in direction. Very poor communication between departments means a big disconnect between senior management and the front line worker. No one is being heard.
Pros
Social committee activities
Cons
Communication, make-work projects, lack of vision

lots of drama and cut throat
Nurse (Current Employee) –  Ottawa, ON28 January 2017
The team is always devided by department. Never enough staff to cover shifts. Corporate always cutting hours and not giving the tools we need to do the work. Residents are left alone for long times if we are busy with another resident and we can not spend the time needed to take care of the resident properly.

me and my coworkers are looking for other work.
Pros
free sandwich and soup for lunch
Cons
everything else
