    Pros

    They pay well for the job you are expected to carry out. The people we serve are amazing. And, it's completely professional.

    Cons

    Communication is horrendous, so it's hard to fully know what's going on in the building at any given time.

    Advice to Management

    Continue trying to improve, but constant change only creates confusion.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lovely residents, beautiful communities, and excellent training at corporate in Louisville, Ky.

    Cons

    Poor pay, some good management but many incompetent people are promoted. Adequate resources aren't given to communities, not set up for success.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to be more in touch with what's going on at the local level, especially communities with high turnover rate. Pay care staff better.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Much freedom to create your own menus and foster the type of kitchen culture you want. You can, for the most part make your own hours

    Cons

    Elderly residents are picky and also very rude. Lack of structure in management makes getting things done difficult. Oppressive hours.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a better recipe database and a better training program for new directors.

    A skyrocketing industry and really smart leadership.

    Long hours and no culture that cultivates leadership (no training, etc.) you either be it or you are gone.

    Attract better talent with a culture committed to clarity, wellness, and growth.

    Pros

    You get to make a difference in the lives of other, to the best of your ability. It's currently feeding my children, and putting clothes on their backs, one free meal a day. So many people quit, you can always pick up hours if you need the money.

    Cons

    They just pack people in here, and it seems like they cannot care for them. They do not make sure they are cared for. They are so concerned with making money, that they do not staff correctly, or make sure the residents are cared for, and they pay so much! I will be doing showers on the floor, and our pages aren't answered. No one is available. The maintenance man doesn't let me use enough soap to get laundry clean, we buy our own. :( They have high turn over, they can't keep a Nurse.

    Advice to Management

    Before you hire an Executive Director, make them work the floor so they have knowledge about what they are leading. Make sure you hire good leaders, that build people up, not bring them down. That CARE about the residents. Quit being so greedy, make sure you are staffed appropriately, and that residents are taken care of. For goodness sake, appreciate your employees. They work their tail off to make you your money, and most importantly, (resident care should always be number one) but most importantly, fragile seniors are dependent on your care. You shouldn't be so dependent on the income you make, They are much more than dollar signs. They are living human beings, that are about to exit this world, and have lived much longer than you. People before money, even if all you care about is money, if you have better care you will make money! We had an excellent executive director, and they asked her to leave. In my honest opinion, that wasn't a very smart move. They are treating their good employees like dirt, they are going to lose some good ones! I've been a care giver for 7-8 years, you're going to lose a good one, and then some.
