I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than a year

Pros

The employees that I had the pleasure of working with. The love of the residents they cared for and the families.

Cons

Poor training. Need to provide more time to make sure the employee is able to complete tasks before putting them on the job. Poor rate of hourly pay for the amt. of work that is expected.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe the CEO, Mr Smith should visit Emerald Crossings and be an undercover boss for a day or two. Also managers need to be trained and understand the responsiblity. Also the 24 hour on call for one person is totally ridiculous. It burns a person out so that they can not function as well in their job responsiblities.

    Pros

    Work with the right people and you have awesome teamwork. Therapy staff is great with ADLs, most nurses are awesome. Take or leave unit managers.

    Cons

    Money as with other companies isn't that great. They fire people at the drop of a hat so you have to pay careful attention to who you trust, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No point in this... they do what they want.
