    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The culture at Emeritus is incredible.

    Cons

    The pay for some departments is low.

    Advice to Management

    Don't join Brookdale.


  2. Most efficiently run community ever, smiling residents and coworkers, until Brookdale buyout!

    Pros

    Resident care was awesome! Impressive coworkers who had been there 5 plus years. Loved coming to work. More like family than a job and I believe the residents felt the same.

    Cons

    Different rules for different coworkers. Mistakes and/or inappropriate behavior is ok for "pets" but a major issue for others. Absolutely no appreciation for those employees who give 100% plus and report those who don't. Unless you are a "pet" you are labeled a troublemaker and your days are numbered. Since news of brookdale the management has morphed into bullies and there is fear in the air. "What happened here, no one smiles anymore?" Quote from a family member.

    Advice to Management

    Need policies and procedures, written and verbal, for training. Trainers should have a check list to follow to be certain everyone is trained the same. It is essential that management knows that all major issues have been addressed. Weekly progress evals should be given to new hires. Workers are going to talk about the buyout, it's not gossip, it's human nature. If management makes a big deal out of it....it will be. Really good staff but some of the higher ups need to leave their misuse of power at the door.

    Pros

    Office atmosphere is very supportive and does a good job pushing out toxic energy. There are a lot of different directions to go within the company to diversify your skills. Most managers/directors seem great to work with, very friendly and hands-on with their staff. Very helpful in helping us move on now that the merger is coming to an end.

    Cons

    We are told this is a merger, but it's clearly a buyout. Brookdale seems to have bit off more than it can chew--their office is a mess and they can't make a decision. There are so many people involved that no one knows what to do or if it's their job to do something. Coming up with a new process involvesd emailing multiple people, but no one responds. We spend most of our days waiting for Brookdale to figure it out. It looks like the merger definitely should have been the other way around.

    Advice to Management

    Figure something out fast. Most of your office is gone at the end of the year and they won't be there to hold your hand.

    Working at the corporate office has been great. The people here are very supportive and fun to work with. There are monthly events to help ease the work environment, so that everyone is having fun on the job.
