    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Brookdale Senior Living is the largest Assisted living community in the United States. If you have to relocate they will accommodate you, if possible. Advance from with in. Reimburse for college coarses..

    Cons

    Currently Brookdale Senior is not offering very good insurance coverage for employees at this time. High turn over for resident aides.

    Advice to Management

    Find better / more ways to recognize your lower paid employee's. You should consider something like company sponsored picnics, with team building exercises.

    Pros

    Lots of support and training. Good potential for growth within the company. Did not get to work with them after Brookdale merger, but hear good things.

    Cons

    There were way too many conference calls. Took a lot of time away from getting to do your true job responsibilities.

    Pros

    Brookdale has brought a lot of great new ideas to former Emeritus communities. They also spend a good amount of money on collateral materials which look very nice

    Cons

    24/7 even if you are hourly. They give too many chances to employees even when they are under performing.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more staffing, this will improve quality of care.

    Pros

    Make a difference in the resident's lives.

    Cons

    Can contract illnesses and health issues while working with the clients. Not the most sanitary of work environments.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees more. Too often, we were required to put work above our home and personal lives, without consideration.

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a decent company to work for nothing too fancy in regards to benefits. I left the job primarily because of the location in terms of commuting.

    Cons

    At that time the manager was a little crazy. Besides that it was an ok experience. The residents were mostly pleasant and fun in getting to know them.

    I worked at Emeritus Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Working here was a challenge, but it did teach me how to be a leader and also how to fulfill some nurse duties, such as assements

    Cons

    Management was in shambles, they were more friends than my superiors. I did not receive adequate training, and when I told them I was not ready they said "you'll figure it out". Since I was passing medications to approximately 55 people whose faces I had not memorized yet, this was a dangerous situation. Their charting system was outdated and time consuming. the hours that I spent with that could've been used toward resident care, but they didn't seem to mind. Also was always calling me in, despite me already working 40 hours a week because their staff was already unreliable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your new employees when they say they're not ready, especially after only 3-4 days a training. Update your systems. And when you repeatedly have unreliable staff doing no call no shows and being late, fire them.
