    I worked at Silverado full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It focuses on the dementia residents and looks for ways to try to be innovative but lack execution process.

    Cons

    I can count in one hand those that truly live the Love> fear philosophy all other are good folks mean well but they can't get motivated enough by those in power who lost their mojo along time ago. Culture audit performed are bias and 360 reviews by independent are water down so that uppermanagement can target those who speak up. VP are cloned like and even some associates who have drank the koolaid seem to robotic like that the true mission is distorted. There training on normalization so that front line staff don't lose the sight that residents are people is weak they havent learned at all from their issues from the past that haunt them.

    Advice to Management

    Loren and investors the next years are critical to you all your 47 million growth into the company is remarkable and can truly lead to making Silverado what it was once but reinvested in your people I mean the day to day workers your 24/7 Administrator that are open to change. Kick the fear out and process your Love for those inside your walls. Truly look at those in power in your company ask them to change those cult like behaviors or send them packing and let new talent with great vision come in and restore what once worked with the founders.
