Current Employee - Executive Director

I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Good leadership with a lot of longevity. Company works hard to do the right thing. Great systems and technology compared to other long term care companies. Their philosophy is that good people make... the difference and they definitely practice what they preach.

Cons

Doesn't help pay for Master's degree.

Advice to Management

No company is perfect but I do feel like Brookdale tries to improve things when something isn't working. Would like to see more/better benefits to support working mom's and women as a huge part of... company is made up of women.

Current Employee - Case Manager

I have been working at First Step House full-time for less than a year

Pros

I have worked at First Step House for a month and a half now and have loved every minute of it. Not only do the staff I work closely with show genuine care about helping me succeed in my job, but the... Directors are always available and checking in as well. The Arbinger “way of life” that FSH has based its culture on is INCREDIBLE and has been such a positive experience. I am never less than amazed in how the staff advocate for the clients we serve and helping them succeed in their sobriety and self-sufficiency.

Cons

Although I'm sure I will at some point, as every company has cons, I have not yet experienced any within this company.

Advice to Management

Continue showing your staff the support you already do.
