    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Culture errored at regional and corporate level. BSL needs to walk their talk...

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great culture at the community level frequently. Great dining standards. Strong administrators in some locations. Some communities have nice remodels. BSL does care about its residents. Great sales training program.

    Cons

    Rude, disrespectful regional and divisional associates. Do not treat subordinates respectfully. Unacceptable rudeness and "THREAT" driven culture. Milwaukee associates are frequently rude to community associates. Culture can feel very "McDonalds" of LTC. Promotions based on good boy network and friendships rather than "performance based". **Large $ investment in sales director training (BSS). No investment in RN director training. Hmmmm.... This clearly defines, in monetary investment terms, BSL priorities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review the culture you create with your directors. Do YOU uphold the mission statement statement? What are your interactions with your ED's? Are they respectful. Create the culture you preach.
