I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Brookdale sells a product I truly believe in....licensed AL with 24 hour nursing services on site, not just on-call! Big difference!

Cons

The only downside to working for Brookdale is that you can get really attached to the residents you serve and due tot he nature of our business, they pass away eventually and you never know when you come into work every day if someone you really like may have passed away overnight....very sad.

Advice to Management

Make an effort to familiarize yourselves with the competitors in the markets where you have buildings so that you can understand the challanges of the sales team. Also attend some of the sales events to understand their good efforts.

    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Residents are great. Some staff very hardworking. Pay is not too bad.

    Cons

    A lot of coworkers call out at the last minute. Management needs better organization. Sometimes it is expected for you to do a lot more than time allows.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more reliable staff. Get organized.

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

    Pros

    Enjoyed working with the elderly.

    Cons

    Bad management with no idea of what it is to value your employees.

    Advice to Management

    Take the time to listen to your employees instead of being quick to discipline when it is not warranted. Mangement needs to be well versed on running a skilled nursing facility before passing judgment to its employees. Very low staffed. If you work here you will not have an outside family life. They are very low staffed and will work you to the bone without hesitation. You will be used and abused. Not a professional environment. No opportunity for advancement here.
