    I worked at Silverado full-time

    Pros

    Fantastic training, great philosphy, beautiful community, good budget, good staff ratio, great residents, great programming, wonderful food, great networking with local Silverado communities

    Cons

    Poor leadership, management and care for residents. Unrealistic expectations, poor communication, regional level confusion-everyone who visits tells you to do things differently-no consistency, no clear direction

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people. Hire people of integrity. Pay attention to the details. Rude people do not lead well. You have some very rude people in upper management.

    I worked at Silverado full-time

    Pros

    Nice and supportive colleagues, attempts to have a Love > Fear environment, pets and children welcome, good pay and PTO

    Cons

    Upper management stuck in their ways and not open or willing to improve processes, need to hire more staff at the home office many departments are short handed. If focusing on expanding, make sure to align manpower to handle the growth or things will fail and quality of work will be lacking. Begin to recognize hard workers not just their VP and above, after all the employees working in the weeds are the ones with the most knowledge on how things run.

    Expensive health insurance and out of pocket expenses, no 401K match for employees

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to ideas from associate who aren’t in a VP level or above, there are many great talents but you have to listen or you will continue to lose good associates. Many are feeling the pressures of being short staffed, grow the home office like you are growing more locations and things will run more smoothly.
