I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Residents and family are a joy to work with.

Cons

Memory care unit managers and associates were outside smoking every hour for 20 minutes.Leaving only one care provider many times working with 27 end stage residents. Documented and reported daily episodes of neglect and abuse to Director and was bullied by Director for reporting. Ended up having to report neglect and abuse to HR and things started to be watched. Residents were denied food and fluids everyday and it made me sick to watch residents be treated so poorly.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get out of this line of work if you don't have what it takes to manage staff and provide the needed care for the residents.

    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!

    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.
