You work with a great group of people who really "care"!

We do a lot of work and not paid as good as Florida.
There usually is NEVER any time to finish all of our work on one shift.
Disaplain is a little harsh for the low pay we get.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    The Independent Living building is tastefully decorated. Working there gives charter school access for my kids. It is in a good location.

    Cons

    I have overheard the man in charge mocking some of the residents who live there. He is a very smooth talker who is very dishonest. Staff seems to change constantly. I often wonder why Brookdale doesn't see that the problem in our community starts at the very top? Your residents are not happy. Believe me. I hear them complain constantly. Sometimes I won't admit that I work there. That's sad for such a pretty place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have worked there since it opened. The problem has always been the same...change the executive director. Things are worse now than they have ever been.

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living

    Pros

    Conveniently located in beautiful Sarasota. Building updates in progress.

    Cons

    company executives/administrators looking out for their best interests and not for the residents' best interest. Staff members in administrative positions not qualified for their positions. Evidence of abuse of residents in the form of neglect, roughness and nutrition. Not enough activities for residence in memory care unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review qualifications of directors and heads of departments as well as ancillary staff members.
