    Pros

    You can't help but to fall in love with residents, they can make you entire day worth being there.

    Cons

    Low staff, underpaid, crappy management, I work at the Emeritus in Fort Wayne ,IN and personally the only thing management is concerned about is filling rooms, they put people who are full healthcare residents in assisted living, it's about the check, as long as they keep getting the check they don't care about how much a resident is declining . They fix none of their issues with their staff . Poor environment!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change your family values, because all it's worth is the words printed on the paper. Your facility in Fort Wayne paints a to die for picture for the residents family , but underneath the surface it's a complete disaster!

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    When I started we had a wonderful management team. The staff are very dedicated to taking care of the residents.

    Cons

    The regional, division and corporate managers are not accountable to anyone. They seem driven to get their quarterly bonuses without regard to consequences.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow up on what you promise.

    Pros

    Very flexible for schedule and personal life. Communication is open. Coworkers are great, no drama. Everyone does their best to provide excellent service to our communities and vendors.

    Cons

    I wish growth was a little more available.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep your values strong if you want this merger to be successful. I fear you'll be too big and your employees will no longer respect upper management or truly believe in the company.
