Disappointed with my experience at Emeritus

I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living

Pros

-Promotions are easy to obtain.
-Little to no structure or guidelines (as far as how you do your job), so there is a lot of autonomy.

Cons

- Because it's easy to obtain promotions there are a lot of inept managers.
- Pay is considerably lower compared to similar jobs in Seattle (hence why they promote from within rather than hire from the outside).
- The benefits offered are embarrassingly bad (unless you're a VP or higher).
- Nepotism amongst executives and upper management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Advice to Executives:
- Your work force reflects the amount of resources you put into them. Free pop/ bagels and deck parties in place of real compensation has spawned low productivity and a large group of under achievers. This will continue to be the case now that the economy is getting better and there are more options.
-Stock options/bonuses shouldn't be given when the company continues to have such poor earnings.

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living

    Pros

    I worked with some wonderful people and the residents are great!

    Cons

    Low pay, high staff turn around, terrible benifits! The 'Our Family is Committed to Yours' slogan is a bunch of BS, they don't care if you are sick and need a day off, and they are always cutting hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect!

    Pros

    -Great company culture includes deck parties (drinks provided), weekly free raffles for sport tickets
    -Building is near Seattle Center, on the water.
    -Relatively easy to change departments after the 2nd year.
    -Employee stock purchase program, 15% discount.

    Cons

    -Poor parking options.
    -Difficult to advance to more "white collar" positions.
    -Not allowed to discuss wages(cause for termination), meaning same job but very different pay within some departments.
