    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved working with the residents and their families. Personally, I have a heart for the elderly which made this job worth while.

    Cons

    Overworked and completely unorganized. There is no system for when people call out sick and if you do not come in when you are asked to, management begins to treat you poorly. I am a very hard and dedicated worker, but I was never treated worse than when employed at Sunrise.

    Advice to Management

    Some sort of on-call service in case co-workers call out sick

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living part-time

    Pros

    The residents and co workers

    Cons

    Upper Management
    Condescending and rude management

    Advice to Management

    Do not act unprofessionally without asking for an explanation or know the employee's situation. "Wish you all the best."

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

    Pros

    Good residents and Scheduling. Was able to work another job.

    Poor management and working short from the first day hired.

    Listen to employees when they complain.

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

    Pros

    Lots of training and time spent developing newcomers to the company

    Cons

    The people that have been with the company a long time (even though they may report to you) run the show and their opinions about the boss are never questioned. They only want Executive Directors who started with the company in high school answering phones then did every position on their way up. No patience for outsiders coming in with "other" ideas.

    Advice to Management

    When hiring from the outside for senior positions, put the person in an environment (and with a team) who welcomes new ideas. And have an Area Manager show up more than once every two weeks!

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

    Pros

    Working with the residents and families are the most rewarding. They made you want to give them the best care possible. It was hard to leave them behind.

    Cons

    Management is messy and unorganized. Too little pay for physical demand of work. Assisted living implies employees assist residents in ADL's instead, you are required to do much more than the job description entails.

    Advice to Management

    Work to improve overall morale for employees. Choose wiser when hiring - some employees lack the skill and personality to work there which makes the workload on good employees more demanding and less excited to work.
