    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.

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

    Pros

    If you love senior care and the science of the aging process Sunrise is the ideal employer

    Cons

    Their talent management sucks.

    Advice to Management

    Re-visit how you recruit and harness your talent pool. Make it so that staff that buy into your mission statement grow with Sunrise and not just be at the mercy of the ED who likes them or not to invest in their professional growth. The ED must be held more responsibile for the culture of their community as corporate does not run the community, they just set guidelines that are NOT followed

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

    Pros

    The residents, ongoing training, staff meetings.

    Cons

    Salary, short staffed, turnover, mgmt.nontransparent

    Advice to Management

    Pay a fair living wage of at least $15/hr. on your employee's to reduce turnover of star caring, hard working employees.

    Get rid of purchased, pre-packaged pureed food that most all residents do not like and many refuse to eat. Go back to manual puree of fresh cooked food made in house.

    We have a dress code and continuously need new shared staff aprons or we have had to rig it with safety pins, ribbons.

    Reduce the Coordinator's & ED salaries to raise staff salaries. There is a lack of balance, respect and priority in regards to the regular staff which is evident in the misguided salaries.

    Purchase needed supplies in a timely manner as well as maintenance issues.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    Meeting different people (residents)
    Relationships with residents. You grow to love them

    Cons

    Management is not the best.. the company is more about the money than the employees or residents

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved in the every day lives of the residents. Also take advice from care givers as they are more involved and they truly want what's best for each resident
