I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

The residents were the best part of the job.
Associates worked well as a team.

Cons

TOO MUCH REGIONAL MANAGEMENT
Regional Management Team was ineffective.
Regional VP micro managed the community
Regional VP never acknowledged the associates when walking around the community.
Regional VP never had a smile on her face; always looked mean.
Regional VP followed the "Peter Principle" rise to your level of incompentence. Regional VP was the poster child for this concept.
Regional VP always misplaced emails and got upset because they were not sent; sent the original email; no apology ever was returned.
Regional VP showed favoritism to certain communities
Communication with regional management team was very suspect; phone messages and/or emails were either never returned or returned after the issue was resoleved.
Long term associates had the feeling of entitlement.
Too many clicks around the community

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Replace the Regional VP with someone who understands the business more

Doesn't Recommend

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