    Pros

    The management cares about their residents and associates. The Reminiscence Coordinator went out of her way to make all of the associates feel accepted. The residents were encouraged to pursue life skills. They trained their associates to progress in the field. I would recommend this position to anyone who would like to advance in the senior living field.

    Cons

    The cons are the same as any other senior living community. You work weekends, storms and holidays. This is to be expected in the field.

    Pros

    The philosophy of care is wonderful. Many team members work very hard to provide excellent care and do it in a way that a family would care for a loved one at home. There is a real commitment to a homelike environment. Front line team members are everyday heroes!

    Cons

    Reactionary senior leadership. Chicago market is a disaster and they cannot keep EDs. It's unclear why they cannot see the problem, but they seem unwilling to act on it. Regional and VP level leadership for this market lack the ability to develop a successful operational structure. Supporting relationships and positions have changed numerous times over the past couple of years and the reality is that there is almost no support to the communities. With a large presence in the market, there should be strong ties between EDs but there is almost none because they lack stability in leadership and are disconnected from the work that is done in communities day in and day out.

    Advice to Management

    If they want to "fix" Chicago and retain EDs, they need to make a change in the leadership that oversees the market. If they continue to allow leadership to continue the "throw it all against the wall and see what sticks" approach to operations, they'll never be the employer of choice for EDs in the market. Reactionary decisions and trying every random idea that pops into your head isn't leadership. It's desperation. And it's obvious.
