I worked at Brookdale Senior Living

Pros

none but a few smiling faces (they don't know the word on the street yet)

Cons

Very extreme ignrance on the many who think they are management (they are but they too don't 'get it') One piece of advice; Don't wait for your Gold watch! Upper management has that all covered! They could all care less. With the reviews they have someone should fire them all and start over!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop what you are doing-Wait! You aren't!

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    great residents, nothing else to say

    Cons

    over worked, underpaid, understaffed, lacks adequate resident care, major turnover in staff as well as management, no communication between depts, some managers either have no clue or do not care about what goes on in building, rude, disrespectful, constant threats of termination, promotions based on friendships and brown nosing instead of performance level, not given any chances for advancement, worst company I've worked for-RUN!don't walk, I would never refer anyone for employment or refer anyone for care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Integrity Hotline is a joke(not confidenticial) take complaint seriously and investigate. Corp should not be calling the person you are complaining about resulting in management to retalliate against the employee and ultimately termination. Corp should be making unannounced visits to communities and also talking to various employees and residents during each visit. How else to know what is really going on. Employee surveys are also a joke. Management has access to these to read and can easily discard bad reviews or replace with a new survey filled in by themselves. Make surveys online so they are confidentcial and received by corp. Make all classes available to every employee so we can advance within the company. Uphold your Mission Statement. Teach you ED's how to listen and respect employees.

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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
