    Pros

    The residents are awesome and they have some very hard working employees.

    Cons

    Run from Brookdale! If you are unlucky enough to work there, fight to TAKE your PTO because when you leave, you don't get paid for what you weren't allowed to take. Their regional directors are bullies and do not support their team, they place all kinds of blame on them instead. When I suggested that there was a hostile work environment, I got chewed out and told to get that word out of my vocabulary!

    Advice to Management

    Spend time in the communities and get to know your employees. Your regionals are unrealistic and bullies. You are losing a lot of very good employees because of them being inadequate.

    Pros

    The residents are the best reason to work for this company. I felt very priveleged to be in their home every day. They loved me and I loved them very much.

    Cons

    As a salaried manager, I worked an average of 60+ hours a week. When I was not there, my phone was going off non stop. I loved my job and was devoted and loyal. I had some issues with staffing shortages and was pulled to the floor to help cover shifts. I had some concerns because my job duties were not being completed. I asked my ED and 2 regional managers for help on several occasions. I was terminated 2 months later.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to you is to listen to your managers, and I'm not talking about regionals. We are the ones working the hours and running your buildings. The regionals, in most case, do not know what its like to work in the "trenches". In my opinion they are worthless "fat " cats getting paid way too much money for educated guesses.
