    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There is a positive employee focus that shows in things like pay scales, benefits, and culture. I have great support from my superiors and have been given the autonomy my licensure indicates. I am fortunate to have a wonderful team of nurses, CNAs, cooks, housekeepers, and even management that continuously go above and beyond for our patients. I love that I can focus on nursing in a way that satisfies my need to take great care of people. Most of us in this field aren't doing it for the pay. Honestly, we aren't paid nearly enough for all the things we do. I am fortunate to have found somewhere that enables me to do what I love.

    Cons

    It's a big company, and it's easy to get lost in the mix and feel like just another number in such a system. The insurance has been going up steadily, by small amounts the last few years and I am concerned that those at the bottom pay scales will have difficulty affording insurance benefits soon. I work in an assisted living setting, and there is a lot of focus on sales training without enough focus on care training. Getting them in the door is not enough.
