    LOVE my boss!

    Activities (Current Employee) Germantown, TN

    ProsI love the atmosphere we have here at The Solana, it's happy, energetic and FUN! I honestly don't think "ugh, I have to go to work today"....more like "Yes! I have a fun job and the people I work with like me and I like them, the residents are happy to see me every day and I feel like I am making a very big difference in their lives. I am constantly encouraged by my supervisor, she has so many great ideas and loves to hear mine as well. I feel like this will be the company I ultimately retire from......many, many years from now!

    ConsI wish the facility were larger, we are almost at capacity and I feel bad for people living in less than optimum communities.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining needs to be a little more cohesive and up to date.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Director of Sales (Current Employee) Dallas, TX

    ProsI am very happy to be working for a comany that has such a passion for the people we serve, I truly feel like I make a difference in people's lives. This is not just a "job" it is a calling.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to facilitate a culture that places the resident's needs first.
