I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

Pros

Beautiful Building with peaceful surroundings. Frontline staff is amazing.

Cons

All about the revenue and not about the residents.
Daily calls on how to get more residents on services even if they don't need it.
Unfair billing and assessment practices
Pressure, pressure and more pressure to perform.
No Regional support at all.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become more involved in the PEOPLE that work for you. Management by fear is no way to work when you job is to care for our seniors. It IS about the residents and not about the bottom line.

    Pros

    The people that work there are great! Most residents really appreciate the services that everyone provides. Alot of people work well as team players there. Many facilities all over the U.S.

    Cons

    The managers need to care more about employees. Some of the residents should be in dementia care, or a skilled living facility. Some residents treat the staff badly, as if you are beneeth them. Managers gossip about staff to much. Managers feel anything they say is ok. Managers talk about staff to other staff. Most managers are very unprofessional. Not many options to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come talk to employees one on one withouthouse managers there, and you will get honesty from staff about what is really going on there. Make managers take management classes at least once every two years! Take the confidential employee hotline into consideration, if you have more than a couple employees calling and complaining, then it is not just "discruntled employees". After every complaint no one from corporate came and spoke to any employees, and it doesn't change, just gets worse!

    Pros

    Great residents, like visiting your grandparents every day, some good employee's if it can keep them.

    Cons

    Lousy pay, worked too death, complaining up & down the chain of command does nothing, you live in fear of losing your job, with upper management looking for any opportunity to get rid of you for someone cheaper despite never having enough people in some departments & jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit treating people like they are a resource that needs to be striped mined.
