      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

      Pros

      A clear mission and a plan to achieve it. My Executive Director is one of the best bosses I’ve had.

      Cons

      In sales, it’s always based on the move ins. Which makes perfect sense.

      Advice to Management

      Thank you for caring about my success with Brookdale

      Disapproves of CEO

      I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      The Seattle office had great leadership (no longer there) and they really cared about their employees. They showed this by putting a lot of effort into team-building, career development opportunities, and employee engagement. They also fought hard to give their staff as much work-life balance that was feasible.

      Cons

      Benefits were decent, but could have been better. The offices in other locations didn't feel tied in to the corporate office. There was a notable lack of consistency and cohesion from office to office.

      Advice to Management

      Find something that will unite your workforce and make them feel like a part of something bigger and more impactful.

          None except for increasing pay but this company is phenomenal. As big as they are, you feel like this is a small family.

          Pros

          The residents are great! The staff cares and takes great care of the residents. The Leadership Team has had some great changes recently. Both communities are clean and are wonderful places for your loved ones to live.

          Not as up to date as brand new communities, but gives the best care around.
