    I have been working at Golden Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really good job for people who love freedom and the ability to own there work. The facility's are nice and everyone is friendly.

    Cons

    If there was one thing that is a down side it is very hard to find. I am making stuff up to get to the twentieth word. I just wanted to see a salary and now I have to write a review ughhhhh.

    Advice to Management

    I am also going to ramble in this small text box until I slowly work my way up till I don't have to do this any more. Chicken car and I will be in the morning and I will be in the morning and I will be in the morning and I will be in the morning and I will be in the

    Pros

    The people you work with are generally great people. The benefits are competitive.

    Cons

    If you resign and want to go back for some reason they won't hire you back. You kind of have to know someone to get your foot in the door. All the depts. don't always work with each other like they should.

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

    Pros

    Facility is nice and clean. Company events to spur morale. Some pretty cool people. Good pay, Good PTO

    Cons

    Double Standards. Tattle tale co-workers, nit-picky managers. Make big deals out of nothing. Fear of losing your job or getting written up. I got written up for going into a locked room with security, who allowed me to follow them and they did not get written up. How messed up is that. Afterwards my Manager says she questions my morale judgement........REALLY!!!! Most of the people I talked to said that in order to move up you have to leave and come back because department managers have to release you (at their discretion) from your current position before you can go to another. Also if you like to try to change things to make them better or do things differently you will get blasted for it over email while everyone is nice to your face and is all smiles. This is also a Razorback, Republican, Conservative, Overly Religious Christian SANCTUARY! IT's NAUSEATING!!!! They under utilize company assets such as many people having expertise in configuring networks or building programs or databases and they only use them for tech support, changing passwords! Companies across the US would pay double if not TRIPLE for the knowledge some of these people have. If you are in IT, I would look elsewhere. unless you can get into the Engineering positions. Otherwise its not worth the headache.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being stuck in your old ways, unwilling to change with the times, and try new things. Don't fret over the little things.

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

    Pros

    Great hours, nice immediate supervisors. Hours are recommended for the 9:00 - 5:00 workers, and or parents. Immediate supervisors seem to really care.

    Cons

    Poor pay, and poor administration. The pay is chump change given the expectations of employees and high-volume work. The administration just doesn't care.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what the employees are saying.

    Pros

    Opportunities to work with a lot of different people and a lot of different projects. Some directors are great, some are awful.

    Cons

    The corporate office is not competitive with their salaries and you have to "know someone" to get anywhere in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Make internal recruitment less uncomfortable and provide more competitive salaries for the jobs.
