Emeritus vs Brookdale

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living part-time for more than a year

ProsFriendly staff, nice facility, team approach to caring for the elderly

ConsI work for both Emeritus and Brookdale and I find my work experience at Emeritus far superior to Brookdale. The Emeritus facility fosters team work and caring; the Brookdale situation is all about intimidation, threats and the profit margin. Emeritus respects the professional's opinions and recommendations; Brookdale does not. Right now, I really dread having Brookdale take over Emeritus operations. Could be my work situations are isolated instances; and, it depends on the bonus structure and who is more aggressive about obtaining it.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo away with the bonuses because it breeds dishonesty and contempt in an industry geared to caring for the elderly.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
