    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of great co-workers, decent pay for what I do, working in an industry where you can positively affect people's lives

    Cons

    Lack of advancement opportunities if you don't kiss up to the right people, favoritism, lack of diversity among upper management, not enough positive feedback from supervisor

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The mood on the all-company call that was held just days after many long-time employees were demoted or laid off was too cheerful and joking, and it was disrespectful to those who were going through a very difficult time. I know we are supposed to have fun every day but more decorum was needed. Also, post positions that are available before granting them to whomever kissed your butt the most. You open yourself up to lawsuits by not giving everyone a chance.

    Pros

    Great place to work when it was the original Brookdale.

    Cons

    Now too big, too beauractatic and too clicky...Kiss but to get anyway or they fir you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together...Replace upper management with people who know the business and can relate to their employees and their residents. You guys grew TOO big, TOO fast and kept the WRONG PEOPLE in positions of POWER! f I'm sorry to say I would NOT recommend the NEW Brookdale.
