      Working for Athena can prove to be rewarding, providing you work hard and follow instructions.

      Cons

      Management is not necessarily fair and reasonable. They make decisions on what would benefit themselves first before considering their patients, employees and family members.

      We're pleased to see your 4 Star recommendation of Athena Health Care Systems, however we must point out that we have been in operation since 1984, and our President and C.E.O. has been with us since the beginning, in the same role. You may have us confused with Athena Healthcare, ...

      Pros

      I worked for the company for quite sometime. When I first started it was pretty good and they actually seemed to care about their employees. Now that Uma is in charge you can expect to be walking on egg shells all of the time. The corporate robots are all nasty people that cannot be trusted. Be prepared to rip that knife out of your back. These people should be in jail for the risk they put their staff and residents...

      We are very saddened to read your review. Athena was established in 1984 and has a great reputation for not only the care of our patients and residents, but of our staff. From "Taking Care of our Own" (our employee "sick" fund) to the many employee recognition programs we run in ...

      Corporate management is unabashedly derisive, dishonest, underhanded and unethical

      Advice to Management

      Stop being derisive, dishonest, underhanded, and unethical; your personal insecurities are negatively impacting the overall success of the company. I am disappointed in the direction in which the owner is allowing this company to go
