    I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nothing great about the company itself, rather the pros come from being able to help people and their families through the aging process.

    Cons

    Complete lack of understanding of what happens at the community level.
    Unrealistic expectations of line-staff and management.
    Tons and tons of wasted money on endless 'pilot programs'
    Understaffed EVERY SINGLE DAY
    Low wages, awful benefits.
    On call 24/7...even when you're off.
    Not being provided essential tools to do job...ie. cell phone, or cell phone reimbursement
    Training is an absolute JOKE, if you even get it.

    I think I've said enough. If you are intelligent, driven and want a life, please look elsewhere. Brookdale does not practice the values they shove down your throat on a daily basis. Brookdale exploits the elderly with their high rates and increases. Money is not invested in better quality staff, food, care, services,etc. Brookdale cares about the bottom line. Period. I have worked in various aspects of this company and I am simply disgusted and what I've learned.

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of the clouds and come back to earth. Spend some time in the communities, speak with your care staff and community leaders! We are the people who keeps things going, yet you treat us as though we don't exist. Your business decisions are poor and thoughtless, at best. Why don't you start investing in the people who make Brookdale a reality?
