I have been working at The Bristal Assisted Living full-time (less than an year)

Pros

met a few nice people that didnt last very long due to other job oppurtunities.

Cons

low pay, benefits take most your pay, supervisors dont follow the rules set forth by management, HR department agrees with what ever supervisor says its a dead end job also they hire mostly jamaicans..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

work pay and benefits need to be fair for the job your doing and train your administration staff to follow the rules and regulations, white plains ny just opened up and employees are coming and going like a revolving door with all the money your charging the tenants families who reside there i cant see why theres such a low pay...

    Pros

    Working with passionate people at the community level. Making a difference in the every day lives of seniors and family members. The role is rewarding whenever you have the opportunity to empower people and solve problems.

    Cons

    Engel Burman is the management division for The Bristal (corporate team). The Corporate folks lack vision, any knowledge of the industry and very rarely did you get a feeling that these folks had any idea on what was going on. Training was often talked about by corporate folks however never existed. A sales culture that utilized bully tactics and gossip to create fear and a hostile environment. A wellness team that had unqualified people (no RN's or LPN's). Overall disfunction and what do you expect from incompetent over paid folks that are content making 6 figures and no interest in changing how seniors live. Worst Culture i have ever been around.

    I worked at The Bristal Assisted Living full-time

    Pros

    SOME of the staff are very helpful in getting you settled, helping you to learn the routines, and how to deal with certain things. They offer some bonuses year round, little to nothing.

    Cons

    Morning shift people are severely overworked, all HHA's & Med Tech's are underpayed. Management does not care about you, or your well being, they are deceitful, direspectful, rude, and do what they feel like when they feel like. They are constantly watching, and following you. If you don't wear a suit, or are an RN you are treated as dirt. You pay for meals, that you dont get to chose, you eat whatever they give you basically. Theyre means of communication i.e beepers/pagers do not work, then they try to write you up/ blame you for not having known things. They allow their residents to disrespect you, and give them the impression that you are their own private aide. They tell you the patients have Dementia etc then when the patient complains you stole something, or you yelled at them, they start investigating and believe them, which typically occurs in patients to have memory loss. Horrible work environment. Some staff have to be avoided, some people dont want to do their work, and somehow everything gets blamed on the person who is visible. No room for growth at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stand behind your employees, we work for you, we represent you, we do the "dirty work", while you all collect the big bucks, and treat us like garbage. RESPECT your staff!
