    Pros

    Residents are great. Grass root employees are great but management is horrible. Do not place relatives or loved ones here.

    Cons

    Management does not care about residents. Food service 1hour behind. Poor food choice.
    Corporate does not care about internal issues. Only wants census. Makes residents provide own transportation for dr appointments.

    Advice to Management

    Close your company. There are many horrible reviews on your company. OWN UP TO IT.

    I worked at Frontier Management (OR) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The industry may offer long-term growth.

    Cons

    Extremely poor corporate leadership as well as investor relations. Overall and based on my experience, the company does not take responsibility for properly mentoring or training staff. They are on the very low side of salary and had no clear example for employee growth. I was extremely disappointed that management did not build internal relationships with me and others, and did not place people in positions to succeed both personally and professionally. Highly disappointing and was a waste of time for my career growth.

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at Frontier Management (OR) full-time

    Pros

    An incredible company to work for. Frontier is seen as an example in Senior Care; delivers consistent, elevated service.

    Cons

    Because of longevity of Management staff at some communities, growth from within may not come by very often.

    Pros

    The elderly residents are terrific. Very gratifying to work with them and add a measure of happiness to their lives.

    Extremely high staff turnover due to poor management, competing priorities, and poor pay for a lot of management induced stress.

    Management needs to place quality care before revenues. Invest in your staff to reduce turnover.

    Pros

    Great leadership from real people who genuinely care about what they are doing and the people they serve. I'm very excited about the future in Senior living with this company, they are focusing on the future in a positive way and not stuck in the old way of doing things.

    Cons

    None so far. The company and community I work for has not shown any negatives that could not easily be overcome.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on making it purposeful, elevated and relevant to today's seniors.
