I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

Pros

They have a great number of resources on a regional and national level. There's always someone you can ask questions of.

Cons

Dealing with the day to day pressures from residents, families and staff and then having to implement new initiatives being pushed from regional and national leaders.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really observe and listen to the community level leaders. Hear their concerns and help them solve the staffing issues. Set up more regionally available training in dealing with Memory issues and schedule it so that overnight and weekend teams can attend.

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Learned a lot. The company has the best interest of the patient at heart.

    Cons

    Too many cooks in the kitchen. Way too much corporate company that dictated what you were to do in your building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Once you hire the right people...let them do what they are good at.
