I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

Pros

Residents, front line associates - ability to enact positive change in one's life

Cons

Too many layers of middle management; totally inept and out of touch with the day to day operations of a given community.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Top heavy, new CEO should look at overhead immediately, trim all layers upon layers of fat.

Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    You get experience with all the levels of senior care. You have a choice to relocate in many places.

    Cons

    mandated corporate programs that sometime seem out of realm of resident needs and abilities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the talents of the your current employees to create programs without spending money on 'outside experts', when current front line employees are the most updated experts on all resident needs.
