I worked at Atria Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Saught long & hard for PROs and could not come up with a single one

Cons

Work you to death directive comes from Regional leadership
Managers are promised bonus and oppty to advance - neither are a reality
Every day is crisis mode and you're expected to be OK with that - they call it sense of urgency.
A use you up and spit you out sort of employer

Advice to Management

To Regional & above management. If you truly wish to grow in the marketplace take a long hard look at how you treat your community managers. They have no loyalty to you because you treat them like slave labor and issue threats on their jobs

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

    Pros

    Tuition reimbursement
    Training, CEU and continuing education opportunities paid for by employer

    Cons

    Salary employees are subject to unrealistic expectations and have little support from upper management, who seem ill experienced on the day to day functions/realities of working inside the community
    High department head turnover rates
    Line staff become overworked, budget restrictions and poor pay discourage talented professionals from working for/staying with company which leads to under staffing in departments forcing the department head to work excessively long hours with no compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time in your communities. See what a day in the life of a department head is like and use that experience to base your expectations of them on.

    I worked at Atria Senior Living part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Do offer good facilities and activities for the residents.

    Cons

    Staffs at the facility I was involved with seems to be steadily reduced. Most expensive facilty in the area ( eastern Massachusetts ) and typically have the highest annual rate increases even with the struggling economy. No flexibilty in resident agreements.

    Advice to Management

    Management has become desensitized to the strain their costs, increases and inflexibility in working with the residents and their families. Learn to treat them like customers . Several years of ongoing residence will cost hundred of thousands of private pay monies. Show some respect to those that have incurred that costs......
