    Pros

    Helping seniors
    decent pay
    food made from scratch many times
    clearly defined expectations from management

    Cons

    Like most large companies if you're seeking creativity as a chef or upcoming cook you will not find it here as their menu is strictly defined right down to every ingredient. The reason is that they are serving a sensitive population (senior usually 80+ years old)

    I have been working at Sunrise Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    I love working for SR. Its a great family like environment. The company overall is pretty flexible, but each community is different Im sure. The company does put the residents and their care needs first.

    Cons

    The benefits aren't the best. You end up having to pay for things out of pocket.
    Since each building is opened 24hrs, they do not close for snow days. Each employee regardless of their role/position is an essential employee. Therefore if you cannot make it into work you have to use a vacation day. And vacation/sick time is accrued, not given.

    Advice to Management

    The care manager position is an essential role in every community. However it seems that with in the communities that the people hired for this role are not "the best of the best" Often they are young sassy girls, that don't understand the importance of their jobs, or they don't hold a lot of accountability.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    Relaxing environment, friendly coworkers, holiday parties, etc. Most of my coworkers felt like family!

    Cons

    There were not many promotions available. Every job had their own section and ran differently from other sectors.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work! I would suggest training programs or something to help out the people who want to advance at Sunrise or in their career.
