  8.  

    Successful community due to the efforts of a visionary Executive Director

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living

    Pros

    Hands down, this community's greatest asset is their Executive Director. This person is a visionary leader with innovative ideas for improving assisted living communities based on the combination of latest technology and old-fashioned human warmth.

    Cons

    Micro-management tendencies by less-experienced managers combined with budget cuts due to an impending takeover (merger) restrain me to giving only a 4-star rating. High stress levels are often evident in key employees due to heavy workload demands.

    Culture! Emeritus has been a wonderful company to work for - they are supportive and encouraging of growth.

    Cons

    Pay. You have to love what you do to work at Emeritus (or in the senior living industry in general). Its a matter of the heart, not a matter of the wallet.
