I worked at Enlivant

Pros

The pay is ok. Working with family and residents is great.

Cons

Senior Management is horrible. The industry is very 'dog-eat-dog'. You must have a very thick skin to work for any of the Senior Living communities. ALC is very mean spirited and very cold hearted.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Laurie, go work a different industry.

    I have been working at Enlivant

    Pros

    The poor sweet residents that are stuck living there.

    Cons

    The company in of itself is making great money. However, they do not give back to the residents, the community, nor do they care about anything except how much money they can screw people out of. This is one of the worst companies I have ever encountered. They are also still affiliated with the nightmare corporation Extendicare.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What goes around comes around. Bad management begins at the top.

    Pros

    For the residents and house staff

    Cons

    If you want to spend every waking hour working with no down time, work HERE. No consideration for the fact people want a lfe outside of work too. Micro-managed to death! If you love to do reports, you will fit right in, this company reports on the reports, if you know what I mean. Then just as you are tring to get your residence under control they have you travel to some convention for MORE training on the reports. When you do find good staff, they do not want to pay them well, just work them to death. In addition they never get the billing right for the residents and their families, which makes you look bad. Your title may be residence director, but they do not really give you any authority to manage your building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read "First , Break all the Rules" and learn how to manage real people, not machines! Step into the the 21st Century of management by learning your employees are your assets and should be treated as such. Lastly, get a new accounting system in place for proper billing!
