    I have been working at Enlivant full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Walker Place in Shelbyville has "grown up" with Enlivant. We have the strongest team ever with great wages and excellent benefits. It greatly concerns me that people write painful reviews to try to undo success because they chose to leave and did not do it appropriately...thinking the grass was greener on the other side and because they were not professional in their exit, they cannot return to what they know was the best job they ever had. The staff is appreciated! The residents are loved! And the best part...we are backed by an amazing company that stands strong on their mission statement "To be the most trusted senior living". Walker Place lives this every day!

    Cons

    Only concern is how hard it is to attract good people into this amazing industry. Sure you work hard. That's why they call it a job.

    I wish I would have joined this company a long time ago.

    There are no pros. All of it is lip service. Micromanagement at every level. Horrible reputation in the industry.

    Cons

    Micromanagement, Low Pay, Lack of Respect, Workplace Harrassment, Unlimited Vacation pay is a flat-out lie.

    I have been working at Enlivant full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Enlivant is an excellent company to jump start and grow your career. The culture provides an opportunity to learn and grow and most importantly, build confidence in your leadership. This organization provides talented individuals opportunities to expand their skill set regardless of role. The culture is supportive and fun and most importantly, the people are great. There is a sense of team work and camaraderie. During COVID 19, the leadership team stepped up in countless ways to ensure the teams were safe and supported. I continued to be inspired by our teams and how they have responded during this unprecedented time in our country by keeping our residents safe. I finally have find my purpose at Enlivant.

    Cons

    More contemporary systems and finding ways to continue to support our teams so they can spend more time with their residents and employees.

    Pros

    Even during this time of change and a global pandemic, Enlivant continues to put its best foot forward to do what's best for their employees and consistently brief their employees bi-weekly on company-wide town halls. Communication has increased 100% and employee engagement has improved to stay connected with colleagues. Enlivant looks out for their employees and it stems from the Executive Team.

    Cons

    None to mention at this time
