Former Employee - Department Manager in Wilton, CT

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.

    Former Employee - CNA in San Antonio, TX

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the elderly.

    Cons

    Bad management with no idea of what it is to value your employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take the time to listen to your employees instead of being quick to discipline when it is not warranted. Mangement needs to be well versed on running a skilled nursing facility before passing judgment to its employees. Very low staffed. If you work here you will not have an outside family life. They are very low staffed and will work you to the bone without hesitation. You will be used and abused. Not a professional environment. No opportunity for advancement here.

    Former Employee - Dishwasher in Huntsville, AL

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 5 years

    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.
