    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time

    Pros

    I worked at APFM for several years. In my experience there was lots of opportunity to grow that I was able to take part in. The corporate culture was great and made the environment fun and inviting. There was always something going on from Day of Service, monthly corp happy hour and yoga.

    The company does surveys semi regularly to get the pulse of office and management was always supportive (in my experience).

    Management is very transparent and change happens with great frequency keeping.

    Cons

    If you don't like transparency and change, this is not the place for you. There is a history of mass lay offs.

    I worked at A Place for Mom full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are very good. Team I was on was wonderful to work with. Training is grueling at the beginning.

    Cons

    Quota system is something that is difficult to deal with every month. Can be very stressful especially since much of the quota achievement is out of your hands (people die, family has loved one move in with them or they change their minds, etc.)
