    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Sunrise has a family feel. We all have a passion for what we do.

    Cons

    Many of the staff members have been employed for years, so it takes time to get the schedule you want/need.

    Pros

    Well structured company. Easy to grow internally. Corporate guides you so you're trained well.

    Cons

    The lower positions make less. On the other hand the higher positions make great money. Responding to Corporate is time consuming and annoying but in the end they help.

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    The culture of Sunrise is great. The team at the corporate office in McClean are good people. I had the opportunity to work with one of the best Regional Director of Operations in my career. My Sunrise Recruiter was experienced and very upfront.

    Cons

    You don't really have the opportunity to hire your own team. It's all about who knows the regional team and who is friends with who.

    Advice to Management

    Take pride in knowing that you have hired some exceptional directors and allow them to do their job. But keep doing what you are doing because you are the leader in Senior Living.

    Pros

    A loving place for seniors and you can tell the staff really cares. Every other weekend off for full timers and sometimes part timers as well. Full time position hours are set. The company does things to appreciate staff members and my R/C is awesome. I love working here.

    Cons

    The most problems that I have had working at this facillity is with other co-worker. I have not been the first one with these complaints. I believe its lack of communication and different views on how to get tasks done. The coordinators have been trying to resolve these issues, but it is always a recurring problem.

    Advice to Management

    I think there should be some kind of intervention with staff and communication skills. Some of the workers maybe set in their ways and it maybe more difficult to work as a team.
