      Pros

      Good culture and values in individuals. However, the one cornerstone that I truly believed in was "Take care of the resident and the bottom line will take care of itself" was removed from all handouts. I no longer can ethically or morally support this company, which is a shame.

      Cons

      Top heavy management Lower management and associates do all the actual work while regional managers and other upper mgmt swoop in occasionally to criticize. Then they give you a fake smile and leave. Then you're left wondering if your job is in jeopardy. Usually it is. Career opportunities abound if you know the right people. Brown-nosers are very well received.
