Pros

You can transfer anywhere where they need the extra help.
You have wonderful benefits & PTO time.
You work with a great group of people who really "care"!

Cons

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

Have companstion when talking with a "worker" and don't make it always sound like we are idiots.

    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.

    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.
