    Stop overlooking the efforts of hardworking employees they are what makes the community succeed. Stop the gossiping and the childish behavior that creates unnecessary drama

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The great things about this company is the atmosphere. It provides a very homey feeling for both residents and employees. I love the activities they have for the residents and the all house events as well.

    Cons

    I really don't understand why full time employees don't get a full 80 hour paycheck. It takes a long time for things to get done and privacy for residents and staff should be enforced more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees better. We work too hard.

    Pros

    Great work environment, of course, depending on the team members. The residents are what you really strive for.

    Cons

    They've always expressed their interest in promoting from within but as of the past couple of years in the Northeastern NJ region, there seems to be little if none of that happening. I've been an employee with Sunrise for 7 years [on and off] and in serveral communities with much experience but after my fourth try at a managerial position, I've yet to get the tools or advice I need to professionally grow in this company.
