    Pros

    Great employees and Management. If you need help on the floor the supervisors will get on the floor to help. Your fellow employees don't leave you in the weeds, they will help. The residents benefit from teamwork and it shows!

    Cons

    The only thing I can complain about is there are a lot of people who call and it makes the staff who comes in have a heavier work load. But, that is anywhere you work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you do bc it is working. Reward the ones who are there every shift and who do great work.

    Pros

    Working to improve the lives of senior citizens can be very rewarding. Most of the other employees were pleasant to work with and. Overall good work environment.

    Cons

    A lot of broken promises and empty encouragement. As a cook it was hard to work with such minimal and low quality products. The pay was not to satisfaction either.

    Pros

    What a company! They lived and breathed their culture every single day! Residents came first! Employees came first - from the CEO to the division president to the VP "our family is committed to yours" was absolutely true! My 4 star rating is for Emeritus!

    Cons

    They merged with Brookdale and sadly Brookdale didn't have a culture that even came close to the Emeritus culture.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to the CEO at Bookdale - the culture you talk about is not what the representatives you put in charge believe or live. They've developed their own culture that is not inline with your vision for the company and your seeing the effects of that! My optional ratings are for Brookdale!
