    Decent place to begin a career and move on from, but be prepared for low pay and poor benefits

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    - Casual work environment
    - Laid back atmosphere
    - Flex work hours in most departments

    Cons

    - Low pay
    - Terrible benefits. I had superior benefits at my part time college job.
    - Great disparity between executives and employees. I understand that VPs and the like will always make more money, which is justified, but this company is ridiculous in this area. Emeritus executives are some of the most highly compensated in Seattle while the company has never once turned a profit. Emeritus went through a period of layoffs and increased the cost of benefits while executives were receiving millions of dollars in bonuses for having negative net income yet again. Should the execs at this company have more extravagant offices than Steve Ballmer, Zuckerberg, Gates, etc.? Seems ridiculous and completely unnecessary when they're underpaying all of the staff
    - Very low annual raises
    - Turnover has been increasingly drastically as this company cut wages during the recession and now has a bunch of intelligent, qualified employees working for pennies. People are bolting in waves now that the job market is improving

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your employees. Human capital can actually be a valuable asset and possibly a competitive advantage. Deck parties with a little beer once a month don't make up for the poor wages and benefits. People aren't happy and will continue to leave unless things improve.

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    *The residents and their families
    *Making a difference

    Cons

    *Management is too disconnected from rest of staff and difficult to approach
    *Little to no training
    *Understaffed and overworked
    *Duties described in interview process different than reality.
    *Treated more like wait staff than RA
    *High staff turnover rate
    *Residents' needs not being sufficiently met in my opinion

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employees. Resident care should always be more important than the bottom line. Realize that by not equipping your employees with adequate training and time to perform duties sufficiently, resident care will continue to decline.
