I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I have nothing good to say about this corporation.

Cons

Worked to death. No appreciation. No training or education. Thrown in to a job and expected to sink or swim. Divisional personnel will make certain they are not held responsible for anything. Will make certain you are held responsibile. No feeling of security. Always waiting for the foot to drop. Witnessed many personnel being walked off the job. Favortism abounds. There is so much wrong in so many ways. When you voice a concern, you are out of there. If you want to be a "favorite" keep your head down, work yourself to death, kiss butt, and keep your mouth shut. Budget, budget, budget is shoved down your throat. Heads in the bed, not dead.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get a clue. I saw many good people walked off the job, and many others just quit. What is left is not too many you would feel comfortable working with. Educate and train your personnel. Don't expect them to do things via instructions from google.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The management staff is likeable, friendly and easy to work with, I consider all of these people my friends

    Cons

    too much micromanaging by the people that I claim to like... too much pay going to the people that don't do the work that the clients are paying me to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell us what we need to do when you already know that we are aware of some immediate need. instead ask if you can help us or lend a hand in dealing with the immediate crisis

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living

    Pros

    residents lives are inspiring and life changing.

    Cons

    Too many programs to actually care out with detail and success
    Big Boy Club in Regional/Divisional
    Cut all sales commissions by more than half.
    "Cornerstones" are chanted but none are really followed. Upper management does not follow.
    Communication is very poor.
    Executive Directors get very little training (3 days of class 6 months into their job)
    High turn over

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen and care about your employees. It is obvious you don't care.
