    Current Employee - Senior Program Coordinator in Vancouver, BC
    Recommends

    I have been working at Amica Senior Lifestyles full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Amica is a good company to work for if you are looking for ways to advance. They have done well to deal with the current COVID crisis and are supportive of employee health and concerns. Lots of new communities set to open in the coming years.

    Cons

    There is risk of burnout in salaried and management positions, an unspoken expectation for overtime and long hours, especially if you are looking to advance or be promoted. Newer buildings were seeing high turnover in management positions I believe for this reason as well as low salary offerings for skilled positions especially in areas like West and North Vancouver where the cost of living is high.
