    Pros

    I work for atria because of the residents and location....

    Cons

    Management not so good here they are to young for one and they have no respect for you or themselves... Also Atria raises the residents rent but not the line staffs pay but managers get a raise go figure. Or how you say a BONUS that's bogus... Where we get 2 to a 10 cent raise. Your benefits suck they need to go back. There is nothing but favoritism in are community. People that been here for long get pushed to the back burner appose to someone who been here a year maybe two gets a promotion. Because they are gd friends with a regional. No matter if your on here or them surveys they don't listen..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up they need to train you people on how to communicate with staff and residents and family members. Stop pulling the favoritism card. Do some work.

    Pros

    There is potential for growth within the company

    Cons

    I was once told and I think the company truly believes once you are at management level "Atria Owns You". After being promoted from a line staff member to a management position and was working 50+ hours a week a higher up once told me "this is not a 40hr a week position".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better support for staff

    Pros

    Excellent autonomy of my own department. I am impressed with the possibilities of teamwork in the building.

    Cons

    All monetary and other perks are for employees other than department heads. It would be nice to have some perks to strive and work toward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Department heads have passion and skills, find ways to appreciate them too. I know there is a the possibility
    for a bonus, but I need to learn about how that is earned. I appreciate how time-off and time worked is given with my Executive Director. She is fair.

    Pros

    Residents are wonderful, but little time spent with them at the director level because so much is required of you behind the scenes.

    Cons

    Low pay, long hours including weekends and holidays, high rate of turn over.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Top level management ideas & strategies are extremely removed from day to day process.

    Poor Work-Life Balance, Insufficient Resources, Low Morale

    Pros

    Knowing the mission of the company is to provide excellent care and independence to aging populations--although not always perfect, I could always take pride in that!

    Cons

    For perspective, I was a high-performing, respected employee. I was promoted twice in under 4 years. My less-than-stellar review of the company is due to: poor work/life balance (24/7 work expectations without 24/7 pay), average/unremarkable pay in general, reactive rather than proactive operating practices, low employee morale, unwillingness to invest in human and capital resources needed to keep up with company growth, and apparent lack of employee appreciation from senior leadership.

    The poor work-life balance was the primary issue that drove me to initiate my job search and ultimately resign for a higher paying position with significantly fewer required working hours and no required travel.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Evaluate & improve work-life balance expectations.
    -Dedicate appropriate, sufficient resources to meet growing demands.
    -Improve communication in every and all possible respects.
    -Engage in more proactive strategic preparation rather than reactively scrambling to solve preventable issues.

    Pros

    Value in helping older adults. At the direct community level a good feeling of team work. The caregivers really put " care" into their working with the residents.

    Cons

    Constant pressure to keep " heads in the beds". Questionable admissions with those who should be placed in a different level of care or when they need a higher level of care to discharge them. Corporate down to Regional management do not have a sense of what is needed at the local level. Just corporate policy.
