    Chaotic. Schedule, duties, & responsibilities would drastically change daily.

    It is all about the money for the company and not the residents.

    Pros

    Pay was competitive for some positions. They make certain they get every red cent out of their employees. Healthcare benefits were reasonable. You can eat in the community if you are lucky enough to be in one with decent food.

    Cons

    Executive Directors are hired puppets and are afraid to take a stand for themselves or their team. Regional management are rude and ruthless and do not care about anyone except for having themselves look good. They have their favorite communities and employees in each facility and the rest of the people and communities are lacking which hurts the residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get over yourselves and have confidence in the people you hire. Do not hire people you want to control. Hire people who will do the job and appreciate them. The industry is for the residents, who pay your salaries, so how about treating them with respect and acknowledge them when you visit the communities. It is not about you. It should be about the residents. I would never move any of my family into a Brookdale community after knowing and seeing what really happens in a community.
