Pros

A Place For Mom represents 'the right idea at the right time' - the company mission is to help families find senior care options that are right, both for the family and for the senior. The Senior Care world is growing rapidly as our population ages and life expectancies increase. Working at A Place For Mom represents an opportunity to really help people, and to at the same time, to work for a successful, growing company that is expanding and hiring, even in the present difficult economic environment. Since I began working here a little over 3 years ago I've had the opportunity to work in several different departments and have been promoted twice! I've had an opportunity to learn and grow with the company and my experience base and income have benefited accordingly - I feel very fortunate to work for this company!

Cons

I believe we as a company have learned a lot in recent years, and management has made significant improvements in the areas of training & development, and in compensation in the last 9 months - unfortunately there was a time when Eldercare Advisors in the field were paid on a comission basis and that did not work well for a number of folks. I feel like, based on what I've seen in the last year, that the 'cons' are behind us and that things will get even better going forward.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I feel like Management is pretty transparent and I believe there is great value in continuing and even expanding that transparency.

    Pros

    APFM is a great place to build experience, network with amazing people, and offers a vast amount of opportunities for growth for those that work hard and show that they are reliable. I have learned so many valuable lessons during my time here, and I was able to take advantage of the growth opportunities through my own promotion from the call center to learning and developement.

    Cons

    Every work place has their cons, but nothing about APFM stands out to me as a major con. There are many more pros!

    Pros

    A Place For Mom is a growing company in downtown Seatle that is revolutionizing the way people search for assisted living and memory care for their Mom or Dad. The employees really care about helping people and the new management has improved the environment and culture of the company to make it a great place to work and help people.

    Cons

    It's still a small company, so if you are looking for corportate luxuries and perks, you may want to look elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the communication and the openness about the company strategy.
