    Pros

    Pay and benefits good. Middle management good to work for.

    Cons

    The upper management are overpaid and extremely dysfunctional. Back stabbing was the norm at the Denver HQ. Outside of Denver was fine, as long as you didn't have to interact too much. Looking at Denver? Stay away!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people outside of Denver. Listen and work with each other. Get rid of the hidden agendas in upper management. Why do you have an HR director who is proud of her ability to fire people???

    Pros

    Pay and stocks are good. Some of the mid-level managers are fantastic if they can keep them there. The problem with good employees at not so good employers is that they do not stay for long. Their morale goes way down, The benefits and time off is good, but there is no team work or communication between groups so all work stops when you are off.

    Cons

    Poor executive management -- they seem to have a management style akin to a blind man feeling his way around a new room. There is not a single new construction project that is not massively over budget. There is no accountability for those employees above VP and they are given full rein to wreck havoc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The BOD should replace the CEO and all executive managers from the SVP level and up with competent managers who care about the stock price, the employees and the residents and not necessarily in that order.
