    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (less than an 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.

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    People are nice, residents are mostly nice. Opportunity for new grad LPN

    Cons

    Schedule is always mess up. They would put me to work every weekend, even if you ask for a day off, they may still schedule you to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect people's schedule.

    Pros

    The staff works as a team at the facility I am at. I occasionally help out at another Sunrise and the staff there are not as friendly.

    Cons

    No letting the job get to you. The residents are getting older as we all do and its hard to see them pass.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire within. I was told in the beginning that Sunrise hires within. I was hoping to get more hours but was told that another person would be hired to share hours.

    Pros

    I love the residents they are great but a few residents aren't polite and are rude to staff and residents.. But this resident is still allowed to be there-- not cool

    Cons

    The staff isn't always available to help residents
    Management sometimes lacks direction
    Facility as a whole the communication is not great

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire and train people properly especially the care managers- most come to work with friends and socialize.... Residents are not being put first
