    I loved BSL and was proud to work there, until I was (I believe) wrongfully terminated

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living

    Pros

    I like working there because I did something different everyday. It was a very stressful, but rewarding position. The CNA's and CMT's where great to work with. I worked well with 95% of the nurses and the therapy department director was awesome to work with. I had a huge office/classroom downstairs and across the hall was central supply and she was a great person.

    Cons

    They are more about the money, than customer care. The Integrity Line, which is suppose to help employees, is a huge disappointment. The lack of communication is terrible in all aspects. If the upper management wants you gone..... Your gone no matter how much you do to cover yourself. They will question every employee to find the smallest problem and turn it into a reason to fire you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop terminating good employees for no reason, except to save money. Appreciate what they do and tell them they are doing a good job. Give them a bonus...they deserve it. Give them more to let them know their hard work means something to you.

    Good pay, but the job is sometimes all consuming.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living

    Pros

    Competitive pay, good co-workers, good patient geographical perimeters.

    Cons

    Need to improve orientation, organization, and communication to associates. Payroll is a very disorganized process. Good pay when we get it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The hiring process needs improvement. When help is needed, good people are still trying to make it through the "HR bootcamp" to get started.
