    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I love the face that the set up of the building is warm and welcoming. I also like the fact that there is a small cafe right when you walk in that offers coffee, water and home made cookies regularly. The best part is how warmly everyone greets you.

    Cons

    I just started working here so I can't yet speak to anything negative.

    Advice to Management

    Nothing yet. Keep doing a great job. Management seems to really care about everyone's well being here.

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked for Sunrise for 7 months. It has been one of the best decisions I've made. I completely changed my career when I joined the Sunrise team. We ware so many hats it makes my days fun and go by quickly. I enjoy working with the entire team and I miss the residents during my weekends. We are all there to make the residents home feel like home.

    Cons

    The benefits are expensive, not enough matching to the 401 and TOO much training on areas that done pertain to your job. It took months to get hired, no real recruiter and yes we are always running short on the shifts.

    Advice to Management

    Get a recruiter for ALL positions to keep a full staff, match more to the 401k, less expensive health, dental, vision and all the tac on insurances.

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are some great people that work in the communities.

    Cons

    Care managers are way to over worked. I an loosing them to competitors that do not require their caremanager to clean dining room and do activities.

    Advice to Management

    Lighten the leading caremanagers or there will be no one left to hire but the rejects because all the good people went to competition to work with more pay and less responsibility.
