    I have been working at Brandywine Senior Living full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company philosophy for care is validated every day when we make a difference in the lives of our residents, and our employees. We have the greatest team members, and they pride themselves on success. I'm proud to be a part of this company and this team!

    Cons

    While not really a "con," a job at Brandywine is not for everyone. We are the trendsetters for assisted living and we expect a lot from our employees. If you want to stand with the best, stand with us! If you are satisfied with putting in an "average day of work" then you will not find reward or longevity. We are the best because we are ALL on the front line.

    Advice to Management

    Thank you for caring about us too!

    Pros

    The directors and managers at Brandywine Howell are truly customer first! They ensure that the staff has all of the right tools to make sure the residents are properly taken care of and satisfied. I've never seen an Executive Director or Director of Nursing pitch in the way that they do here. There is no job that I haven't seen them help with. Standing on the front-line of customer service along with your employees sets an amazing example. They make themselves available to our residents, families and staff. All of the changes I've seen them make since joining 1/2016, have helped build a stronger team and supportive work environment! I love it here so much, that I've brought 5 of my friends to join our company.

    Cons

    I haven't had real any negative experience distance being there the benefits are slightly high on the pricey side. The directors are easy to talk to and quick to address issues.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to standby your staff and lead by example it will take us to amazing places.

    I have been working at Brandywine for nine years in the Howell building. Thru the years this has become another home and family for me.

    Pros

    I have worked for Brandywine Living for 11 years. It's more then just a work place or a job; it's my second home. I am lucky enough to work with some amazing people who strive to make a difference in the lives of others.

    Cons

    When working this industry we know that eventually we will lose and have to say goodbye to some wonderful people we have cared for and connected with. Although this does not get easier as time goes on it is still a very rewarding and fulfilling career

    Pros

    The directors and managers at Brandywine Howell are very proactive and support all of the residents needs. They are truly "customer first". They are quick to ensure that the employees have the tools and support needed to appropriately take care of the residents that live here. They encourage and acknowledge the staff when they go above and beyond. They are consistent with communication meetings and make themselves always available to our residents, families and employees. Its awesome to see an Executive Director and Director of Nursing that will pitch in wherever is needed, working side by side with the staff. All of the changes I have seen them make, have lead to a better work environment. I enjoy my job, the support I receive and the residents so much that I've brought 5 of my friends to join our company!

    Cons

    I haven't had any negative experiences since coming on board 1/2016.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to strive for excellence! We appreciate all that you do and standing on the "front line of service" with us sets an excellent example!
