I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than a year

Pros

Relaxed atmosphere. Can be fun at times.

Cons

Corporate culture. Let low level employees hold a lot of power and control. Little chance to improve "bad apples". Allow dysfunction to perpetuate for fear of unionization and lawsuits.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I love the older people that I was working with, they are what makes the place at Sunrise. They do a lot of activities with the residents to keep them busy and overall it's set up really nice.

    Cons

    They keep employees around that are abusive to residents and just give them a slap on the wrist, but they fired a lady because they said she fell asleep. They have just recently put in pull alarms in the bathrooms for resident safety and camera's in the hallway. It seems like the only reason they have started to improve was because of multiple complaints to the state. Also, employees need to be paid what they deserve, and now I hear they are taking away some of the differential pay for working overnights...not fair.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to get rid of the people who are a danger to the residents and stop listening only to one shift tattling about another shift. Maybe actually hear both sides before coming down on hard working people and show more appreciation...not just in giving tshirts

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The atmosphere is homey and friendly and the Residents are special people.

    Cons

    Is you lose some special loved ones along the way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not let Corporate come in and do audits and let employees go who for 5 plus years have done an excellent job and all of a sudden they are doing nothing right. You do the math.
