    I have been working at Ventas full-time

    Pros

    Successful company, well regarded female CEO, competitive compensation, excellent benefits, collaborative employees, challenging and rewarding work, good tools and resources, training and development opportunities

    Cons

    Work environment can sometimes be intense but what successful, publicly traded company isn't similar? Lack of established flexible work guidelines is problematic for managers who feel like they have to have permission to run off road. In departments where managers effectively manage, flexibility isn't an issue.

    Pros

    Decent benefits; pretty offices; many loyal, hardworking employees

    Cons

    The company is resting on its laurels. The executives love to tout the company’s long term performance but the real outperformance occurred years ago - just look at a stock chart. The dirty secret is that the leadership hasn’t done anything valuing enhancing in years. The CEO is a masterful deal maker, but has surrounded herself with sycophants and yes men and gets involved in every minor decision. The executives slap each other on the backs and hoard oversized pay, while the next layers of employees do all the real work and provide the creative ideas, with little credit. Serious talent has walked out the door, new hires rarely stick, and those tenured employees that have stayed have become too damaged from years of mind games to know any better. The HR function is out of step and focuses mostly on spinning employee engagement results to look positive.
