Pros

Brookdale sells a product I truly believe in....licensed AL with 24 hour nursing services on site, not just on-call! Big difference!

Cons

The only downside to working for Brookdale is that you can get really attached to the residents you serve and due tot he nature of our business, they pass away eventually and you never know when you come into work every day if someone you really like may have passed away overnight....very sad.

Advice to Management

Make an effort to familiarize yourselves with the competitors in the markets where you have buildings so that you can understand the challanges of the sales team. Also attend some of the sales events to understand their good efforts.

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the elderly.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    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.

    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 Management

    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.
