    I have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    The residents and the team are great.

    Cons

    The Regional for the East only cares about numbers. No care for the residents or the employees. It is totally about money. Integrity issues.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. Doing things right will make the company grow, not only worrying about the numbers. Think of the residents and the employees

    Pros

    Great residents for the most part. I wish there was more I could put here but it was a horrible experience working for them.

    Cons

    Terrible pay, terrible management. Expect you to care for 30 or 40 residents with special care needs and dementia at once. Work short handed constantly they break state laws and cover them up when state comes out to inspect

    Advice to Management

    Horrible

    I have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people that work here are nice and everyone gets along. The residents are all nice and it is fun getting to know them. The work itself is not too hard, some days are crazier than others but overall its easy.

    Cons

    The pay is very low for what other companies in the same industry pay. The benefits are not the greatest. Vacation time, sick time, and 401K do not go into effect until after the first year. They do not do a 401K match. Management is very bad, they treat employees badly. The building is very run down and has many health violations.

    Advice to Management

    Update/fix building issues and treat employees with the respect they deserve.

    Pros

    Helping residents , CO workers and families

    Cons

    Corporate doesn't care about how employees are treated at the community they work at. All they care about is filling the building at all cost.

    Advice to Management

    Check in with employees, these are the people in the trenches that make it all work.

    Pros

    Working with seniors is rewarding

    company is so concerned with penny pinching many corners are cut and the staff and residents suffer. Low moral from dismal anual raises (2% max) and no bonuses whatsoever. Pay is low to begin with. Started compeltely new at a competitor at 10k more than my 5 yearsa at csl.

    Advice to Management

    care about your employees and seniors in some way.

    Pros

    The residents are worth going to work every day for. They make your day feel so great

    Cons

    The administration is the worst only cares about money . Not the residents well being or the staff. Also has favorites and let's certain staff get away with anything

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so selfish. Open your eyes and who really does their job. And not kissing upper management butt

    I have been working at Capital Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    I cannot think of one positive thing to say about this company other than the people I work with at the actual community. We work well together without corporate interference.

    Cons

    Horrible insurance for medical and no dental plan at all. Payroll is disorganized as well as accounts payable. They all seem scattered at corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Train your employees...all of them. You need a better training system for directors in their new position. It's not fair to throw someone in a position with absolutely no training or maybe a day of training and expect them to do an excellent job.

    Pros

    Ok pay. But don't expect the residents nor the staff to be treated well.

    Cons

    The executive director is not bright. Only cares about money and her friends in the office

    Advice to Management

    Fire your executive and pay attention to what the people are saying. Treat thy residents better
