    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, flexible hours and does a good job promoting a good culture. Throw monthly deck parties and celebrate holidays, especially Halloween, very well.

    Cons

    I've only worked for them while they were going through a merger so chaos reigned. No one was/is sure what the chain of command is. The established processes are falling apart and management is doing an awful job giving information out. Basic questions, like how to do transfers, are still being sorted out.

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are relationships formed here where the residents become like your own family and that part of the job is very rewarding. There is also the ability to move up as they will hire from within you just need to be willing to put in the time.

    Cons

    The pay is average at best and for most positions the work you put in is much more than the compensation received.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider going back to the bonus money earned for that allowed all employees a chance to make extra money each and every month or pay the positions what they are worth in the first place for the jobs that they do each and every day.
