    Pros

    Their mission is to champion the quality of life for residents but they do the same for their employees as well.

    The hardest part is loosing a resident you have really bonded with.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cutting edge technology, care analytics to continually improve ways to improve resident care, CEO Chris Winkle visits the communities and is very down to earth and truly cares about what the teams thoughts, feelings and ideas are. Great systems for providing care to residents. Great team member training, in person, job coaches, leads and department coordinator.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of paperwork which takes away from the ED being able to be more productive in other areas. Such as being able to work along side mentoring a struggling coordinator. Make a difference in the marketing efforts or calling family members. The list goes on and on of all the ways a ED could be more productive delegating or automating a lot of the paperwork.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is amazing! Always trying new cutting edge ways to improve team member and resident experience!

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    It is one of the nicer assisted senior living homes. Every year get a merit based raise. The shortage of employees means you are always welcome to get rehired or PRN.

    Cons

    Very high turn over rate. Often over worked as due to staff shortages.

    Advice to Management

    Need to more incentives to keep people from leaving or develop a better method for finding new employees.
