I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You do get a paycheck every two weeks

Cons

Resident who ppay over $4000 a month are budgeted around $160 a month for all of their food. Corporate and Regional management squeeze every penny that they can. Residents are short changed at every aspect of their life. Employees are overworked and underpaid. Residents get minimum treatment and not enough money for suitable food. Corporate profits are huge and level of care and feeding are bare minimum.

Advice to Management

Get off of your high horse. Try treating your employees with respect. Salaried managers are so understaff they need to work 60-70 hour weeks while getting paid for 40. Managers treat employees with such a level of disrespect it is criminal. Hourly employees are so underpaid and overworked to try and drive corporate profits. Management should try and treat thei employees like they are human and not treat them like dirt

    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 Management

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

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living part-time (Less than a 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 Management

    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.
