    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great residents... That’s it. The company doesn’t live by it’s values.

    Cons

    Zero ramp up time for sales. Middle management pressure is borderline harassment. They have no problem letting someone go if census is not up, yesterday.

    Advice to Management

    Empower your people with training. Don’t harass with unrealistic quotas or deadlines. Do the right thing by your residents. Stop sending prospective resident’s away because it is not profitable to keep them there . Check in with lower management staff to get the real scoop on why turnover is so high. It is a shame to see the old ways of Brookdale have not really left the company...
