    I have been working at Enlivant full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility is offered for salaried members of the trifecta team. Regional Directors are receptive and work well with the community managers.
    Fun is one of the core values.

    Cons

    Being on call 24 hours a day and having to cover any position if no other employee is able to work.
    Management staff at the community level are not able to make decisions on their own.
    Low rate of pay for direct care staff.
    No reimbursement to further your education. Unclear on opportunities to advance/grow in the company.
    Care of residents need to be first priority. More training is spent on sales than on improving resident care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow community managers to make more decisions on their level. Develop a plan to eliminate 24 hours a day on call.
    Mainstream paperwork to a minimum.

    Pros

    There is comradely throughout the company - however, it is bonding over the horrific management

    Cons

    Dishonest, unethical. A complete mess of a management system where abuse is fostered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees.

    Pros

    Building a strong culture and overcoming many of the old ALC mindsets!
    Hiring the right folks as Executive Directors in the building - can see the difference.
    Exciting new changes - Findly, Selling Solutions are a great start.

    Cons

    Still figuring a couple things out - corporate office needs to be measured on their support of the field organization. Accounts Payable in particular is a mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have to focus on the field and your investors both to be successful in 2015! Make sure we're creating a corporate structure to support the field and not simply settling for "good enough". Corporate teams need to be accountable much like the regional/divisional teams are.

    Pros

    I have been in the senior living industry for almost thirty years and have worked for a few of the industry's best providers of care to our nation's elderly. My previous companies evolved over time and, unfortunately, lost sight of their core purpose and strayed from their mission statements. For those of us in the senior living field for a long period of time, you have likely experienced the same. I joined Enlivant a year ago after meeting with the new executive leadership team who shared with me the journey Enlivant would be pursuing to reinvent the former Assisted Living Concepts. The more I listened and learned, the more this opportunity touched on every reason why I chose to make a career in senior living: care and service to the elderly, the ability to champion a culture I could embrace and help establish, a strong commitment to people and an avenue to make a remarkable difference in the lives of residents, families and employees. After a year, I can only say every single aspect of the new Mission, Vision and Values of Enlivant has become a reality. The employees at Enlivant, whether community based, field based or at the corporate support center, are forming bonds and relationships that create a feeling of family with a true sense of belonging. This is what people in our industry want and need to make their careers as rewarding and meaningful as possible. When you have a culture the evolves to where Enlivant's is today, the possibilities are endless and the rewards too many to count. If you work for one of those senior living organizations that lost their way, know that there is a company out there that offers everything you want, expect and deserve. I look forward to continuing this fantastic journey as we make Enlivant the most trusted senior living provider in the country.

    Cons

    There are no cons, only more upside as Enlivant continues to evolve and grow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It is clear that you are staying the course and are 100% committed!! Keep it up!!

    Pros

    The residents are really the only pro of this job. They were the reason I went to work every day.

    Cons

    No time off, on-call 24/7, no holidays off, no vacation, not enough help, upper management is very "clicky", you are expendable to them, they don't care about their employees, pay is terrible, poor training

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect, actually spend the time training your employees, give your employees time off- I was so burnt out with this job, don't have an employee on-call 24/7 and never give them a break- this is brutal!

    Pros

    Residents are given the best care possible, floor staff and management want what is best for them. They are treated like family. Facilities have all been recently updated most are beautiful inside. Benefits are great and very reasonable in cost compared to other companies I have worked for.

    Cons

    Going through changes in regional management, but all I have seen are changes for the better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please keep going forward, keep the lines of communications open.

    Pros

    Lovely families, residents, great care is given. Training and motivation are improving. Company vision, mission, values and goals are clearly communicated. Regional and divisional support very involved. This is not be afraid, corporate is visiting culture. Excellent benefits and upward mobility.

    Cons

    Old attitudes, but those can change. I recently read a very poorly written review by a person claiming to be a nurse in my community-I am the only current nurse in our Enlivant house and our residents are well cared for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay the course.
