I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (more than 10 years)

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.

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    It's a quiet place to work. Decent pay.

    Cons

    It's too quiet in the office (Depressing). Gossip circles abound. No respect for long-time employees. Change happens at a snail's pace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper-managment is part of the problem. Some of the long-time managers have burned out and become ineffective.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    Professional wages are good; staff are patient oriented and caring toward residents.
    Benefit menu good; costs excessive..

    Cons

    Caregivers poorly educated/supported and underpaid. Corporate culture is command and control...top down directives; very demotivating environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offering SNF level care requires properly trained caregivers! Retaining staff should be a higher priority for company success. Corp. culture is outdated and will dwarf company success in new healthcare environment and workforce pool. Employees don't feel valued, trusted, or trustful of management. Programs are great on paper, but not supported with enough properly trained staff to implement them.
