    I have been working at Atria Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Atria Residents are amazing! So many of them have unique life experience to share- entertainers, military, artists, corporate leaders, women who were pioneers in their industries!

    The company is growing so the opportunities are limitless.

    Cons

    Front line employees turn over a lot so it can be challenging to get momentum.

    Working with older adults can tug at your heartstrings- it’s hard not to fall in love with them but losing them as part of the natural circle of life can be hard.

    Advice to Management

    Develop leadership training opportunities so those who want to gain skills to help them as they advance are better positioned for advancement.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fellow employees really cared for the residents there
    Very clean and well kept place

    Cons

    The retention rate of keeping employees wasn't very good. A lot of people would leave or a lot would get hurt so we were short a lot of the time

    Coworkers were great, and the hours were decent. It was a good first job.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    Fell in love with residents

    Cons

    Became a nursing home. Management lowered expectations of residence health and abilities in order to fill vacant rooms. This compromised care of those residents

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees. If you choose to change the prerequisites of the abilities and overall health of the residents it is your responsibility to see that the ratio of caregivers and nurses are appropriate. Be the patient advocate not corporates pocketbook.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Residents and their families, great Business Office and Life Guidance Directors

    Cons

    Minimal leadership, both locally and corporately.... needed to improve overall cleanliness and attitude of 1/3-1/2 Of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Seek new leadership and go in each day with your eyes open...as if your parent lived there....notice the details...constantly...because it matters and the example has to start at the top.

    Pros

    Residents are the ONLY reason I’m still working for this garbage company. Other than the residents, there are no pros for this lousy company.

    Cons

    Management is horrific, always short staffed, don’t have the appropriate tools to do your job, bully type atmosphere, make promises they can’t deliver, I could go on and on.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying employees and forcing people to leave, stop being fake when you have a tour and making promises to families you know you can’t keep.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    pay and benefits pretty good, that's how they get you in.

    Cons

    when you first start at atria it seems like this awesome company. Once you are in it you see who they really are. From corporate to community they operate on a bully level. They will try to push you out if you are not what they want and are not nice about it. Nobody really feels secure with their job no matter what your position. At the community level the Executive Directors are very well compensated and they will do whatever it takes to be sure they look good, meaning look out because nobody has your back. I am one of many who feel this way as you can see with other reviews. It is not a place for long term employment unless you are a higher rank and buy into their bully culture. There is little respect and value and they do not care about work life balance at all. In addition, they charge astronomical increases to their residents 10% without blinking an eye and they do not care. Not a company to be proud to work for. If you need experience get it and get out.

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason why Atria has a 50% turnover employment rate
