Featured Review

Current Employee - Lead Care Manager

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


everyone works well together, a lot of team work. If there is anything we need to help with taking care of the residents our coordinators will try to provide it. There is a lot of opportunities to... rise in the company.I really love that Sunrise understands that we have personal lives and helps the best way possible


Hiring process takes too long they need more incentives

Former Employee - Executive Director

I worked at Brightview Senior Living full-time for more than 3 years


I just completed an almost 4-year run with Brightview senior living. I was an executive director at two properties that were start up’s. Start ups are very challenging, but the Brightview philosophy... and start up support was something that was stellar. In particular, Anita R. is an individual whose precision and attention to detail made my job easier. Brightview’s director of talent acquisition may not only be one of the most intelligent individuals I’ve ever encountered, but she is relentless in finding the organization top quality individuals to help run the communities. The design and construction team constantly look for ways to modify and improve upon their last project… Which only enhances the lives of the residents that live there, and makes the job of the people that work there that much easier. Finally, the culture of the organization is top notch. You really know that the leadership of the company care about you as a person first, and as an employee second.


In any company you will have a con or three. While there will always be the occasional bad apple… It certainly does not spoil the bunch and the good of this organization incredibly outweighs the bad.... And there is very little bad to be said.

Advice to Management

You all should be very proud of what you have created. It was an honor and a pleasure to be a part of the organization and while I have moved on, I am a better administrator and a better person... having worked at Brightview Senior living.
