    Pros

    Good location, Residents are very nice, Clean, Professional Atmosphere, RAs care and are compassionate, Very active community, High level of care provided.

    Cons

    Food may not be consistently good, schedules and hours are cut due to census in the building.

    Advice to Management

    More Computer training for staff is a must, breaks for nurses need to be in writing and accomodated according to the state law, management needs to better communicate schedules and treat everyone the same, when you say their is room for advancement pave the way because if you block the way no one can travel in there career, be that positive mentor.

    Pros

    Culture, culture, culture! Brightview should be the model for all companies. High caliber of talent. Great leadership. Excellent benefits. Tuition reimbursement and other perks. Passionate people doing what they love every day.

    Cons

    None at this time. The company does an excellent job to ensure associates are happy, which is why our turnover is so low.

    Advice to Management

    Continue just as you are. The president of the company is absolutely incredible. Highly visible, and all-around an incredible leader. The company has an incredible leader ship team, and I couldn't be more excited to work with such incredible talent.

    Pros

    Fantastic benefits for those that can get them. Some awesome employees and the residents are great to work for. A mostly happy place that allows for promotions.

    Cons

    Not everything is as great as it should be. Some how and for some reason terrible employees and bosses are hired. Some locations are so much better then others.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be a way to make each location the same.Some are so incredible while others are not.

    Pros

    The benefits are excellent and the pay is mostly competitive. The company makes a good effort to keep employees satisfied.

    Cons

    It's a for-profit so they can't completely get rid of that underlying desire to minimize costs and maximize profits.

    Advice to Management

    You can never get away with anything in Senior Living. Management needs to listen to the individual needs of residents and respond appropriately. Happy residents contributes significantly to happy associates in a Senior living setting.

    I worked at Brightview Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a really fun environment to work in. Residents and associates treat you like family. Everyday its laughs and fun.

    Cons

    Managers and directors have their picks. Your constantly being written up for small things. Directors are very disrepectful. Corporate doesn't do anything when you call them. Residents care is always being in jeopardy. Pay is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who cares for the residents and its community instead of someone wanting to always lick butts and be friends. We need a leader with mind of his/ her own.
