I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great location in downtown Seattle, monthly barbecues, Starbucks machines, free gym membership and highly discounted ORCA (public transit) card.

Cons

AP department is toxic and chaotic, with no sense of direction. Manager is inexperienced and very much a micro-manager. The people within the department try to make the best of it, but it is a sinking ship.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look more closely at AP, particularly the AP management.

    Pros

    you get to help people, suggest different ideas, be able to be a family to the residents.

    Cons

    If something you don't like dealing with the family you just have to accept it there is nothing you can do. You can't just have one favorite person to love you have to love everyone the same and do the same for everyone. example buying things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    See what people would like to do or see more cater to their needs a little more

    Pros

    At the community level, most staff are dedicated and try to do their best with limited budgets. Emeritus hires people who care.

    Cons

    Staffing is at a minimum, always, no matter how high your census or how much revenue you are pulling in. Divisional VP always sending down message to put your community on a spending freeze at the end of each quarter to inflate numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Emeritus would do much better if they actually used the budgets they made us prepare each year. Unlike other large A.L.'s, Emeritus refuses to give communities a clear capex budget each year, so communities become run down. Create a staffing formula and actually use it.
