    Now I know why I was required to sign a binding arbitration agreement prior to being hired....

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I had the opportunity to work with some outstanding clinical staff. People who were smart, caring and went above and beyond for their patients.
    I appreciated my next job SO much after blessedly being terminated.

    Cons

    Some of the most hypocritical and dishonest persons I've encountered in my 20+ years in the industry work for ISC - and have risen to the RVP and SDO positions by bullying and manipulating their way. The Corporate Compliance attorneys seemed genuinely interested and appreciative when allegations (which were ultimately substantiated) were reported. However, even Corporate Compliance attorneys cannot protect one who Senior Ops folks want to terminate.
    Financial performance trumps all - including descent, ethical behavior - despite all the hollow claims of it being "about the resident" and a "culture of caring".
    Avoid this company (ISC) like the plague.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to require new associates to sign binding arbitration agreements prior to employment. It is a very cost effective way to keep the company out of court.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Location convenient, variety of experience at different levels of care, good internal rehab team (minus nursing),

    Cons

    Up and down hourly with no guarantee of hours or they will send you out to cover at other sister facilities or HH/OP. Poor corporate management with little investment in clinical supplies. Lack of true rehab approach beyond the rehab dept at SNF (nursing very LTC oriented). Productivity pressure with little to no clerical back up and assistance for nonbillable patient intervention. Vacation during holidays has to be requested months in advance and approval is based on availability of coverage. Not enough PRN staff and company refuses to use agencies so frequently NO coverage available and expectation is that staff will just handle it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support the rehab team and program by providing needed supplies/equipment, seeking rehab nurses for rehab units and not just LTC nurses; show staff you value them and make effort to retain good employees, not just let them become frustrated and then leave. Put your money where your mouth is......invest in hiring a LARGE pool of PRN staff or bite the bullet and agree to work with a therapy agency to be sure pts get the care they deserve and staff get the chance to take off time.
