    Pros

    Sunrise is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. They offer top-notch training and do everything they can for you to be in control of your own success. The residents and families make even the most difficult days worth it! If you do your job well it will not go unnoticed and you will have opportunities to move up within the company. The management team in Frisco goes out of their way to work as a team and support one another as well as the entire team. We always strive for perfection in what we do, from the care we provide to how the community looks...some employees may not like that if they do not take pride in what they do and do not like to work hard! This is not just a paycheck, it is a rewarding career.

    Cons

    There is an emotional aspect to working in senior living, you get very attached to the residents and their families and it is hard to lose someone. Just like working for any company there can be office politics or drama from time to time but it is minimal and stomped out quickly. (It isn't nearly as much as other companies I have worked for!)

    Pros

    You get attached to the residents and some of your coworkers

    Cons

    - Your duties extend over that of a CNA, such as making plates, setting tables, activities, laundry, light housekeeping . Quality of care is diminished

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap and hire more people for more jobs instead of overworking your short staffed care managers

  7. It's ok pretty easy get to meet elderly people

    Pros

    Working with amazing residents. Working with good team members who strive to make a difference every day

    Cons

    Overworked 10-12 hours 5 days a week. Plus being on call 24/7. No compensation for expected overtime hours. Overwhelming from assessments, Adressing resident issues/concerns, family concerns and follow ups, new move in assessments, pharmacy issues, team member issues and hours and budgets, etc

    Advice to Management

    If you want high quality of care, give the nurses more resources to push for highest quality of care
