    Pros

    Freedom to run your own business for the most part. No corporate policies and procedures that are ever changing, etc.

    Cons

    Hardly any support for management in the buildings. You are on your own. Capital offers benefits to some of their buildings and not others. Offered no insurance whatsoever in the building I worked in. Salaries are not competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in the people who take care of your assets.

    I worked at Capital Senior Living part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job. You can get assisted living experience.

    Cons

    Some facilities are very poorly ran. Paychecks are often incorrect and it takes a long time to be corrected. Bed bugs went untreated in a Ohio facility. Also very low paying and the acuity of some residents is higher than what is appropriate for AL

    I have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Getting to know the residents and caring for them is so rewarding! Knowing you're needed and someone is thankful for you is great!

    Cons

    Sadly, the management is awful, absolutely dreadful and only care about themselves. No management on weekends or nights, over 200 people have walked out in TWO YEARS, can't keep staff, mandatory meetings every two weeks.

    Advice to Management

    BE A TEAM PLAYER!

    Pros

    Working with Residents who are respectful and considerate. Getting to know the residents who have a lifetime of experience and knowledge to share. Working with staff members, as a team, focused on providing quality service.

    Cons

    I am surprised a Company this size can not offer a better Benefit Package. The Health Ins. is very expensive and does not cover much. Dental Ins. is not available. Nepotism allowed within department creates friction and impedes teamwork.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication, and be responsive to resident and staff concerns. Provide adequate staffing for contracted services to ensure quality of service.

    Pros

    Loved the residents and staff, In the beginning I had a lot of autonomy to run my building. I was treated like I knew what I was doing and was able to use my years of experience to do the right thing for my community.

    Cons

    Changed Regional Directors often, I had 3 in the 1 1/2 yr I worked there. They lost focus and I lost the ability to do what was right. It was all about the bottom line

    Advice to Management

    Get to know each community and their staff. Every community is different, cant be cookie cutter.

    Pros

    Worked for a family owned facility. It was amazing

    Cons

    We were bought out by CSL and I eventually left because they cared so little for staff or residents.

    Advice to Management

    Do not allow your qualify of care to fall so low in the name of maximizing profits. Hire and retain hard working, caring workers.

    I worked at Capital Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Senior Housing working with the residents and familes is wonderful.

    Cons

    Corporate office is very disconnected and does not react to problems in a timely fashion. There is no team spirit and no direction. No Planning, no training, no motivation.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to basics - PEOPLE. Build strong teams, and empower them to do their job. Motivate your team and reward them.

    Pros

    Residents, DON and nursing staff are awesome

    Cons

    Very poor pay. Administrator runs all departments, she leaves little to none to management in other areas. Preferential treatment towards a particular resident. Aide will spend 1-3 hours with resident, while others get very little care. It is about the money. It has turned more into a nursing home than an assisted living, though we are not provided equipment that nursing homes use to properly lift residents off the floor, (this is supposed to be a 'no lift' facility). New residents brought in are at a level 3 or 4. (4 being the highest an assisted living can take). Moral is down in all departments because of how the new administrator runs things, lack of leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Trust that your nursing and dietary staff can run their own departments. Better pay if you continue to accept level 3 and 4 residents and proper equipment to properly care for these residents and staff.

    Pros

    If you are an ED they pay well for the market

    Cons

    NO TRAINING, very poor systems. No support staff. No vacation for 1st year. HR rson never has an answer to any of your questions.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a training program and have more support staff.
