    Pros

    Caring for the residents and getting to know them.

    Management is sexist, racist, and wants to cover up any problems. Residents are neglected. Not a socially responsible company.

    Pros

    I enjoy the residents. Some of the local staff actually cares.

    Cons

    Poor management. Rampant neglect. CSL could care less until they get caught by the state. CSL management practically avoided our nursing home; until they got sued for a negligent death. Very sad that companies like these have 700 million dollars, and spend less than $2.00 a meal on a resident. I’ve seen homeless shelters with bigger budgets.

    Advice to Management

    More advice to the country, don’t put your family in a nursing home, these places are sick.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

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

    Pros

    The flexibility in my position. The residents and other staff appreciate my contributions. All of this is at the property level within the company.

    Cons

    Capital Senior Living owns another property in town offering the basically the same options as the ones offered at the property I work for. There is often confusion between the two, especially given the demographic of our market. Corporate is not willing to allow marketing and name recognition at the property level.

    Advice to Management

    When delegating tasks, please provide the authority to complete the assigned task without consistently being rejected on an idea. The micro managing at the property level is intense. They request fresh ideas and creativity and then reject all ideas that are presented.
