-Underpaid, I was promoted twice and given three raises and it still didn't compared to other companies in the same industry & area, Sunrise paid the lowest. About 50 cents over minimum wage.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try to add more employees to the schedule to prepare for call offs or no shows. Overall, keep up the great job, you made everyone feel like part of something bigger, and made work a second home. Not and employee but an individual. Also was kept up to date about the overall status of company. Were very solvent with employees, of companies affairs, which I thought was great.

    Pros

    The facility based teams are compassionate and caring people who truly enjoy their work. Many of the residents and families show their appreciation for care they receive 24/7.

    Cons

    The long hours, the lack of communication from area management and the favoritism that goes on regionally among managers is disheartening.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your facility based teams to do the jobs they love and provide them with the tools they need to do the work

    Pros

    Love of people. Working with Alzheimer residents.

    Cons

    poor management, mean people to work with (co-workers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Follow through on complaints about other employees- Gain some actual structure in how the day to day operations should work- Don't have "bad" staff train new staff. Being a private facility shouldn't keep you from running a nursing home in the eyes of a public facility. There should be an actual manager ensuring that jobs are done properly by the staff and if someone isn't doing their job- let them go. Especially if they are running off the good staff.
