I have been working at Brightview Senior Living (more than 3 years)

Pros

On the positive side, Brightview offers better than average benefits, especially for PT workers; almost unheard of in today's workplace. Management, more so than other such companies, at least pays lip service to listening to employees. For the most part, there isn't the authoritarian heavy handedness and ruthlessness so prevalent in the 'caring" professions. Overall, the work environment is decent. Call outs aren't tolerated, a welcome change from most tertiary health care facilities.

Cons

Pay is below market and the company doesn't offer shift differentials. The corporate culture comes off almost as a cult; with endless retreats and pep rallies for managers that creates an us versus them of insiders versus outsiders. There is also a disturbing lack of diversity, with the majority of management middle-aged suburban white females, which acts as an informally exclusionary good old girls club. Front line staff are forced to carry the internal cell phones with them even on the unpaid lunch break, meaning many people work without getting paid for that half-hour since meal times are constantly disrupted with resident calls. Staff levels aren't always up to resident acuity,

    Pros

    Pretty building? They sell a pretty picture that's the best I can come up with here. I'm stretching a lot.

    Cons

    There are no substance to the "leaders" of this company. They are hired if they know the right person. Higher ups turn a blind eye to blatant disregard for policy if you are in the in crowd. Buildings are pretty but the care is subpar.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are actually qualified for the position. Break up the rampant cliques throughout the company.

    Pros

    Friendly associates, nice buildings, thats it

    Cons

    Executive Director is known to treat his managers badly, yet he is allowed to do it. Those who complain to upper management, get targeted as "difficult."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your managers and support them instead of condemning them. Why is it ok for the executive Director to behave very poorly towards others, yet if someone is struggling in their role, they are targeted and told it is "personal."
