"Great company"Sep 3, 2019

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 - Credentialed Veterinary Technician

I have been working at PetVet Care Centers full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

My prior clinic owner retired and sold his practice to PetVet. I have seen no major negative impacts from the change in ownership; in fact the only changes I have seen have been positive ones. ... Being a long-time employee, I immediately got 4 weeks of PTO which was nearly double what I had before, and CE PTO outside of that. Health insurance ( a little pricey, but better than nothing). 401k (the match isn't great but heck, it is SOMETHING). Our regional manager has been nothing but helpful and responsive (thank you Emily). We have not been a PetVet hospital for a full year yet so I cannot speak to the review process at this time, but I remain hopeful that it will be fair and timely: My last formal review was more than 3 years ago!

Cons

None at this time.
