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

    Pros

    You can make your own schedule.

    Cons

    Soon to be former employer.
    So beurocratic you will think you are working for the federal government.
    No communication between staff. Good old boy system.
    Paid travel between buildings is dependent on if your regional manager wants to reimburse you. Mine told the physical therapist not to tell me he is paying her.
    Crooked business practices. Only focus is the numbers (productivity)
    You must sell your services to family members to keep your caseload.
    They talk about a proactive approach to therapy but they wanted me to treat people who were so inappropriate for rehab due to the severe dementia just for the extra money.
    NO CEU reimbursement at least for my region.
    Home health visits are not paid as home health. You may as well be working in a SNF at least you will get paid more.
    If you are ready to retire, have no morals, and have no motivation this may be the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None...all they care about is their bonus anyway.

    Employees strive to learn and assist in respecting each others differences, discussions should not involve name calling or evident mistreatment in public surroundings.
