Great the first two years, hell the last two years

Community Manager (Former Employee)

ProsIt really is a good place to make a positive impact on the lives of seniors. That much of what Holiday promises is true.

ConsIn the past two years, the corporate emphasis has gone from focusing on the seniors we serve to sales, sales, sales. There is no longer any opportunity for advancement, and many of the more experienced managers have been fired, demoted, or offered part-time positions. Policy changes constantly--the running joke is that if you don't like a policy, wait a day and it will change! The "old" Holiday promoted an atmosphere of camaraderie among the managers; in the new Holiday, the managers are essentially cut off from each other, and there is constantly a sense that you have to watch your back. Two years ago, Holiday announced a pilot program to replace the current management model of two live-in management teams with one team and a General Manager, who would be brought in from the outside. Although the project never quite got off the ground, and Holiday insists that they remain committed to the live-in manager model, many managers fear that it is only a matter of time before their positions are eliminated.

Advice to Senior ManagementRehire many of the experienced home office personnel who were let go about two years ago; return to the original concept of the "Holiday Touch." Consider freezing rents in this sluggish economy, or at least hold the increases to the rate of increase for Social Security benefits.
