    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 Management

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

    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 Management

    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 Management

    Stay the course.

    Pros

    I have had the opportunity to work for Enlivant for nearly two years. I started as the Community Relations Manager at a community and 7 months ago was promoted to Executive Director at a sister community. Within days of accepting the Community Relations Manager position, TPG Capital announced the future acquisition of Assisted Living Concepts. In July of 2013, TPG Capital announced the complete acquisition and we became Enlivant. As the Community Relations Manager and now the Executive Director I have seen first hand the embrace of the Mission, Vision, and Values from the CEO, Jack Callison, to the divisional team, to the regional team, to the community managers, to the line staff and on to our residents. It is an atmosphere that has become contagious and very easy to live and breathe the Mission, Vision, Values. This type of atmosphere as also made it easy to communicate with the regional team and even the divisional team. We all understand that we have one common goal and that is to become the most trusted senior living provider. And we do this by enriching the life of our residents through meaningful relationships and vibrant communities.

    Cons

    Just like many things in life, there are growing pains to rise above as Enlivant continues to move forward and grow. It is easy for people to get frustrated and loose sight of the goal when things don't always seem to go their way. If you don't recognize this it can definitely be a con as it will slowly begin to pull you down.

    Advice to Management

    Be understanding that in order for a new company to grow they have to start by crawling. And what might not always seem like the right or best way, may in fact be the right or best way. Embrace the Mission, Vision, and Values.

    Pros

    This company has been AMAZING for me as an employee. I have been working for this company since their acquisition of Assisted Living Concepts. I have never found more personal satisfaction in a career then I have with Enlivant. They are constantly recognizing our achievements, promoting our strengths, and providing on going training and support to aide us in achieving our maximum potential as individuals, but most importantly as a team. As a whole, Enlivant stands by it's mission/vision/and values and we are truly working towards becoming the nations most trusted senior living provider. I feel as though Enlivant has stood by me as an employee and I feel the possibilities are endless! I myself being a Community Relations Manager have never felt as though I am working. I feel as though my daily "job" is just SO much more then just a job. I have created not only working contacts, but friends, a second family if you will. These residents are truly remarkable individuals and they have so much to share and teach us all. The residents and their families have become an extension of my own family and everyday brings a new adventure! With that being said, I can only hope that the next person who embarks on an employment opportunity with Enlivant, puts as much heart into their job as they can because Enlivant certainly puts their heart into each and everyone of their employees.

    Cons

    Truthfully I feel as though this career I have is the perfect fit for me. This company allows me to be a mother and a full time employee because Enlivant focuses on balance between work and home. I honestly have no cons at this time.

    Advice to Management

    I truly believe that every policy set forth for salary and hourly employees are extremely fair. I appreciate that Enlivant is moving in the new wave of times with their vacation/sick time for salary employees. Enlivant has offered me great insurance coverage and that is more then I can say for MANY jobs in our small area! Thank you Enlivant :)

    Pros

    Support from our regional and divisional team is outstanding. It is so nice to come to a workplace that does not even seem like work. The community that I am working in is a family; from employees to residents.

    while making sales calls, meeting new contacts and building relationships is so rewarding.

    Cons

    as a sales manager we need to, "hand off" the residents to the executive director and Care Service manager so that we are able to get back out into the community. If you get to attached to people this career may not be for you.

    Pros

    I have worked with this company now for almost two years. In that time there have been many positive changes, one being the overall culture, i.e attitude, outlook ect.. I have never been more impressed with what I have witnessed. The leadership before was too caught up with politics, but now with the new leadership, I can honestly say, they really do care! They have put so much into training and mentoring staff and promoting within the company to give those hardworking employees a chance to move up, and most of all support! The loyalty they show to there employees is overwhelming. Yes, there's big expectations and yes, there is hard work, but that's with any company you work for. This company has extreme potential to be the best at what they do, because they have the drive, determination, and the heart to make it succeed.

    Cons

    It's a work in progress, but hang on for the ride of your life. It's going to be good.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for the ongoing support. You all work long tiring hours and worry like crazy, but the time and effort you put into "us" your employees will only pay off in the long run. We are all in this together.

    Pros

    I had the pleasure of spending some time with Jerry this past week during our Leadership Conference and this man has to be one of the most humble men on the face of the earth. Jerry was recognized as an outstanding member of one our divisional teams and I can sure see why.....Humility!

    Cons

    Need more Jerry's! Keep up the great work! This type of person will most certainly attract similar types of people who will value this great company and the amazing residents we serve.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for bringing people like Jerry into our lives and recognizing his amazing qualities.
