    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.

    Pros

    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.

    Cons

    We merged with a new company. There was plenty of room for growth but then the merge happened

    Pros

    Company was decent until Brookdale takeover was announced. It was at one time a great place to work.

    Cons

    Middle management had no time to deal with their own pending layoff while trying to manage their teams during the transition. Agree with others that there was a very clickish environment which increased toward the end and black balling does occur. Brookdale mismanaged and botched the transition in many ways, but at the end of the day they are just people trying to survive a very big mess.

    Advice to Management

    Show respect to those who chose to move on, those who came from Emeritus and those who take a chance to join the mayhem.

    Pros

    Seniors residents free meals close parking.

    Cons

    Lies and cover ups. They want to rob Seniors of their money and have us pretend it's a great place to work. We do what we need to, so as to make a living. It's hard when we know the company is not delivering on the promises they make to families. ALL ABOUT The Bottom Line AND dollar! Do yourself a favor and don't move into an Emeritus or Brookdale company. Go to the small mom and pops, they still care. My VP team don't even pretend to like Seniors.

    Advice to Management

    Pray for forgiveness you are going to need it!

    I worked at Emeritus at Southpoint and love it, wonderful co-workers

    Met and made a lot of friends both co-workers and residents and their families

    Advice to Management

    I was the Business Office Director and felt the Business Office Directors have more than enough on their plates without having to do marketing work.

    Pros

    Everyone who likes their job here seems to have a calling to accept an help seniors. Great benefits and flexible scheduling.

    Cons

    They need people on call for when others are sick as there's too much burden on the workers that are there. At minimum they could pay an extra short staff payment, especially when more than one are absent. Far too much is expected from employees for $10 an hour when they want the residents to be totally catered to so the apartments can be fully occupied. It's impossible when many residents full need nursing home care.

    Advice to Management

    You would have less turnover in staff if the pay was higher and extra pay was given when workers are absent.
