    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    The environment of the community was a great place to be. The workers, the residents, and everything in between was a wonderful atmosphere. I would go back if I wasn't advancing in my career.

    Cons

    Sometimes we were short-staffed which made for more work but it was easy work if you have done something like this before. Some staff have no passion for this kind of job.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The residents! Love them! I work in a memory care unit and they make my day every day. Most of the staff is great. A few bad apples, but I try to not let them spoil the whole bunch.

    Cons

    Consistency is key!!! Regional directors (so we've been told) are cheap. I think it's most of management.

    Advice to Management

    Stop worrying about the bottom line and focus on what we do....taking care of the residents. They are most important!!! Direct care staff should be next. Pay attention to the cornerstones!!!! Put the residents first and the bottom line will take care of itself.

    Everything has to go up 2,3 or 4 levels for approval or change. The residents and staff in the communities are the ones that suffer.

    After working in LTC, the assisted living assignment is more manageable.
