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

    Pros

    Working with seniors is rewarding.

    Cons

    I have been in healthcare for 25 plus years. I thought I have seen it all. I am broken at what I have experienced during my years at this company. It starts at the top with allowing facilities to be run be uncaring and unknowledgeable staff. Unable to go to HR or supervisors with issues and if you voice your concerns there is retaliation. The Compliance line is a joke. Don`t bother. Your are valued more if you smooze or know all the big wigs. But, if you work hard and are dedicated you are treated awful.You are better just being average and no reason to be go above and beyond.Leave with your pride before you are beaten down.

    Pros

    Fun work environment for the most part. Pay is above minimum wage. Most management seems to really care about the people who work for them.

    Cons

    They make a big deal about "The Incentive Program", (a peice rate system) but it doesn't work, because they always have people working as fast as they can and there is no way to do extra to earn extra money. Plus, you get half the pay for over time if you join. Many people lose money.

    Advice to Management

    Promote teamwork and give clear instructions.

    Pros

    Great staff, amazing residents, opportunity to work with and cherish our older community members

    Cons

    The amount of work can be overwhelming compared to time allotted to complete the task. Management at times is very disconnected

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your office, get to know the residents and the staff at the bedside. If you are on a regional level---get out of the management offices and go out and see the community, work alongside some of the staff and get to know what the real feel of the community is
