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

    Pros

    I get to live the mission everyday. To be in a sales position can make it difficult to feel as though you are helping someone. I get this feeling each day.

    Cons

    It is incredibly hard to manage all aspects of this role but worthwhile.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to long term successful advice for direction on company culture. Reward what is the most important. Exceptional care and service.
