    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.

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay was comparatively high for the field of work

    Cons

    Upper management was constantly changing, in the 14 months that I worked there, they went through 3 different Directors. This left little accountability for other members of management. Also the care the residents received and the conditions of the facility itself were abysmal.

    Advice to Management

    Hire upper management that are going to stick around. That leadership role effects everything below it and if there is no one to hold various managers accountable for their jobs then there is also no one to hold the lower staff accountable as well.
