    Pros

    The company culture is focused on our residents and employees. It's supportive and challenging.

    Cons

    Emeritus is merging with Brookdale Senior Living so the majority of the Seattle presence is being eliminated.

    Pros

    the residents Some of the staff

    Cons

    Below average pay, ridiculous hours to the point of zero work life balance, ripping off the residents. Emeritus, 2 billion dollars in debt buying more buildings, while simultaneously under staffing buildings, underpaying employees, & neglecting buildings Rent is raised multiple times a year but the budgets for each department declines on a regular basis. They pay more to get less. Emeritus & Brookdale both, would happily operate buildings with one caregiver if they could legally get away with it.

    Advice to Management

    Go away and stop stealing from old people!

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health and family focused culture. I always had fun, felt supported and learned quite a bit. Upper management was approachable. Never felt and us vs. them mentality. Not a lot of turnover in upper management in my region at least, a lot of longevity. Their Join Their Journey Memory care approach is likely the best in the industry in my opinion.

    Cons

    Some of their buildings are older and could use some extra $$ put into them. The company is huge so easy to get lost in the system if you allow it. Recent sale to Brookdale is disappointing. Lots of travel for trainings that could have been done via conf call or webinar, appeared to be wasteful.

    Advice to Management

    none

    Pros

    Co-workers are awesome and it is very rewarding working with Seniors

    Cons

    It is mentally and physically demanding work. This is a job for a workaholic and not for someone who is looking to slack.

    Advice to Management

    Look carefully at staffing to make sure we have enough pepole to care for the seniors.

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is my first position at an Assisted Living company and I never want to leave! I have met some of the most positive, intelligent people and I finally feel like I am a part of something bigger. Employees work here because they have a passion for seniors and caring for others - this is so refreshing compared to other industries that I have worked for. My team has been so supportive and I feel that I have the autonomy to make creative decisions that positively affect our employees and residents.

    Cons

    Emeritus is such a large company and I have heard that other employees have not had the same experience that I have had, so I just wish that my positive experience could be everyone's experience regardless of position or location. Consistency in company culture is hard to regulate, but starts with passionate and supportive leadership, which I know we have at the higher level...it just needs to be consistent at the community level.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in employees.

    Pros

    Friendly, supportive and helpful co-workers. Pleasant environment. Competitive salary and benefits. Room for growth. ED is supportive, accommodating and allows for creative input.

    Cons

    Skilled nursing department is unorganized and needs improvement. It would be nice to have more vacation. One week after the first year is not enough.
