    I have been working at A Place for Mom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A Place For Mom is a fast growing company that dances the balance between acting like a startup that needs to grow fast as well as a real 'company' that realizes that growth is just hype if it doesn't lead to profit. The company is also working hard to develop a culture that you'd want to be part of - one that treats everyone well.

    Cons

    With as many opportunities in front of it as there are, sometimes the company tries to do too much at the same time leading all projects taking longer than you'd expect.

    Advice to Management

    Thing through the cultural differences between remote, Seattle and Austin locations.

    Pros

    I came to APFM looking for real work/life balance, and I definitely found it. Coworkers are smart and genuine. Senior management trusts employees and doesn't micromanage. Compensation is fair, and it's refreshing to be part of a company that helps so many. Working here has reinforced how unprofessional and stressful my last few jobs have been.

    Cons

    None so far. Have only been here a few months, but no complaints! I truly enjoy working here.

    Pros

    I have worked with employees of A Place for Mom for several years, and I now work for and with them! Every interaction I have had with employees and staff of this company has been comprehensive, agenda oriented, you always know what the next step is going to be and what direction you are headed in. I was so impressed with this company I looked for employment with them myself. My application to interview to hiring process was well organized and seamless. You are never left wondering or guessing. The employees both as partners and now fellow employees have always been responsive, professional and friendly. I am thrilled to now be a part of this amazing organization.

    Cons

    I have been working at A Place for Mom full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The most satisfying part of working at A Place for Mom is the scope of opportunity that exists to help families and seniors looking for the right senior living option. The resources and training are top notch and really prepare senior living advisors to begin assisting families capably very quickly. Every day brings new challenges that help senior living advisors continue to develop their skills and form new business relationships in the industry. The ability to earn top dollar absolutely exists for those really willing to put in the time and effort to become successful.

    Cons

    Many coming in think working from home will offer great "work/life balance", but advisor and manager positions really require a full time + commitment, including some weekends and evenings. There are high expectations to succeed, and the advisor and manager roles are very fast paced - those that are very driven to succeed do really well, but be sure that type of fast paced environment suits you before joining this team.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop more career paths for senior living advisors and regional managers that are interested in advancing within the organization.
