    Pros

    Taking care of the elderly is one of the most rewarding careers you'll ever have.

    Cons

    Miscommunication between upper management and staff. High employee turnover rate means a lot of work for a little staff.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline the hiring process to get qualified people and faster. Cut down on paperwork.

    I have been working at Atria Senior Living part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The residents are amazing. The staff (who stick around) are great. Benefits are great.

    Cons

    Hey, Kentucky (HQ), the Bay Area cost of living DEMANDS that starting pay is minimum $20/hour. Your Foster Square startup has people quitting left and right because 1) you don't pay them 2) they weren't hired to wear all the hats that you do ask them to wear because you're short staffed 3) The ones who literally know the ins and outs of operations you don't recognize, thank, promote, or give a raise to.

    Advice to Management

    1) Use temp agencies in times like these 2) Open your eyes 3) "It's all about the money" ooozes from management's pores. It's tacky. Take care of your people better and the money will follow. 4) Don't tease staff with a promise of a promotion and then take it away because people who make hiring decisions come from other locations. 5) KEEP HIRING LOCAL and customized to the needs of that ATRIA. 6) If profit is really all you care about, find all the single dads who got tricked into being dads and have child support because they NEED this job.

    I have been working at Atria Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    Most the benefits, from the 401k to the CCR additions and the Wage Works affiliation. Also, they train their staff every month on necessary workplace information.

    Cons

    There is not much room for growth and dedicated employees are sometimes overlooked within their Employee Appreciation culture. Merit system is does not add any value but just a score on a paper.

    Pros

    They are very good at getting people to quit they don't like.

    Cons

    They are some of the worst employers you could possibly have.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to who you hire, because they may just replace everyone with people they're friends with.
