    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The residents were the reason to keep coming back

    Cons

    The care managers are not required to be certified as nursing assistants but the population included MANY seniors with skilled facility needs. I found it unethical to have uncertified staff caring for total care residents. Staff are required to do the jobs of three people and get paid pittance. The communities seem to prioritize workers from other nations as they traditionally have been willing to accept less pay and work hard. This is unfair to the residents whom are often hard of hearing, can’t understand a heavy accent, and are cared for by people who don’t understand the cultural values of the seniors because the care managers are from a different culture. The pay is embarrassingly low. Hours are also micromanaged to ensure no overtime is possible. They are constantly short staffed- which is dangerous for worker’s health and patient protection. People who work there seem unhappy. It is a stark contrast to the vibrant surrounding of each community. There were so many unethical things that happened that I left because I was so grieved for the seniors. They would also promote the “second paycheck” of feeling good about the work being done. Eye roll! That statement is so out of touch with the needs of workers today and the cost of living in most areas...

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Sunrise takes care of their brand well, it's good. I believe that they have a phenomenal vision and on their way to continue to make things happen. I love working for this organization.

    Cons

    Chain of command and communication tend to fall off the crack. The corporate sense and being such a big organization, the flow of messages and communication needs to be looked closer. Maybe review tasks and responsibilities to get a more organized process. Otherwise - all is well.

    The care provided at Sunrise is top notch. Residents always look their best and are encouraged to do activities. You can definitely see a difference in a Sunrise resident and other assisted livings.

    Cons

    Working with Seniors is hard but very rewarding. You have to love what you do in order to do it well.
