I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for less than a year

Pros

The staff takes good care of the residents and being able to interact with the residents is a huge bonus! Negative behavior by employees is not tolerated which makes teamwork more prevalent--only people who work as a team stay employed.

Cons

The pay is comparatively low, working on holidays as an hourly employee, benefits aren't as good as most other companies, every employee is extremely busy and stretched thin.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

My personal experience has been very good with Management. My only advice would be to reward employees with moral-boosters (pay increases, appreciation, nice employee facilities). I believe these things would help reduce turnover and truly keep good employees.

    Pros

    Some managers are good, I'm lucky to be working with one of the better managers.
    Great work hours and work life balance at the corporate office.
    Helping Seniors is a great cause to work for.

    Cons

    Some managers are not that good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on keeping the good managers and letting go the bad ones. This will lead to better overall performance of the company

    I worked at Brookdale Senior Living full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place to work when it was the original Brookdale.

    Cons

    Now too big, too beauractatic and too clicky...Kiss but to get anyway or they fir you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together...Replace upper management with people who know the business and can relate to their employees and their residents. You guys grew TOO big, TOO fast and kept the WRONG PEOPLE in positions of POWER! f I'm sorry to say I would NOT recommend the NEW Brookdale.
