I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I met so many wonderful team members that I am honored to have worked with. The residents were all amazing and had wonderful stories. The family members were unbelievably supportive and great to work with.

Cons

I really do not have anything negative to say about my experience. The only slight challenge that I ever faced was the speed at which some things go done. But that was only due to the fact that Sunrise is a large publicly traded company.

Advice to Management

Make sure to make your presence felt in the field on the front lines. Keep trying to listen and learn from the feedback you get from the front line team members.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The residents will change your life. Everything positive about any job at Sunrise concerns the wonderful people who live there.

    Cons

    I worked at Sunrise for years and at many locations. When I began with the company it was more resident-centered and upper management really cared about nurturing their employees and keeping them in the company. When I left it was because I was heart-broken by the way I was treated, the way my staff and fellow employees were treated, and I no longer felt the care was resident centered. I felt decisions were made based on census and what was financially better for the company. Employees are no longer valued at Sunrise, and the people now running the company are money hungry corporate business men and who see Sunrise as a way to nickle and dime their clients and persecute their employees. There are so many wonderful senior facilities to work at that truly care about their residents and staff. Please consider all options before working for Sunrise. Upper management has become slime car salesmen ever since the original owners stepped down.

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The residents are wonderful, warm and very appreciative.

    Cons

    MANAGEMENT!!!! The turn over is one of the highest at Sunrise all due to the management. The employees are treated horribly. The pay is bad, and the way we are treated is bad, which trickles down to how the residents are treated. No one smiles, because no one is happy. I have never worked in a place where employees are treated so bad.

    Advice to Management

    Need to get people in there that care. The pay needs to be better so employees can feel like they are worth something.
