    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The residents and family members were the best reason to work at Brookdale. The facilities are usually very nice on the outside, relatively clean.

    Cons

    No orientation/training/support, no assistance with tx materials-no tx materials, untruthful, all about $, not about care, no balance

    Advice to Management

    Look at skilled nursing department, there's nothing. Equip your tx's to do their jobs, care less about $ + productivity & more about patients + tx staff.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Almost all employess generally care for the Seniors, which keeps everyone's morale high.
    Employees are generally happy and there's a great team environment.
    Residents appreciate your help - very rewarding

    Cons

    Employees underpaid and overworked
    Such a large corporation that your job often deals with beauracratic requirements, trainings, etc.
    If you don't have an interest in helping the elder you will not like this job.

    Advice to Management

    With the merger of three different companies to make brookdale what it is today, I think it hurt company working conditions and in turn, resident conditions. My grandma lives at a comprable senior living home, however it is more locally owned compared to a major corporation and you can notice the difference for both residents and employees.
