    Pros

    The residents are truly the reason the employees of Sunrise go to work; we enjoy giving and providing a comfortable home for these respectable elders of ours. The general care managers and staff truly work together to help one another and this can be reflected in the care they provide; the best.

    Cons

    - The higher positioned staff or so called Coordinators have a definite lack of care or acknowledgement of the work being done by their employees. Those who have worked there for years are not given proper incentive to be giving the care they do.
    - Wages are a huge con
    - Such strict policies and budgets in the dining area cause problems with ordering and sufficient food supplies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turnover rates at my current home have drastically increased, indicating there has been some negative changes. I have noticed a huge different in the way things have been done in the past year and see residents unhappy with these changes. Maybe truly ensuring your coordinators, not just ED's, are performing to the best of their abilities should be mandate for your company.... because I truly see they are not performing as headquarters would hope.

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Excellent training, pay, benefits and work environment. Good company culture and very rewarding work.

    Cons

    This is a huge company with some organizational flaws that make it difficult to answer to the various demands from corporate while managing one's day to day job responsibilities. Some disparity between high-paying customer expectations and poor delivery of service. Hard, sometimes grueling work. There are some "bad apples" in leadership roles who's behavior does not align with the value statement and mission of the organization. Too much tolerance for bad behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not qualify someone for a promotion just because they have seniority within the company due to longevity. Apply the "Peter Principle" and place people in positions they can manage well.

    Pros

    Home-like atmosphere for residents and staff.

    Cons

    Poor budget planning on staffing needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consider spending more money on staffing and less on beautification. It's beautiful and doesn't need to be constantly updated.

    Pros

    Initial encouragement lasted about 2 months.

    Cons

    Training was not adequate. Management does not recognize any contributions that are made by employees. Understaffed! Too Nuh pressure with added responsibilities because management is not organized.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employee input and treat us with respect. Provide ad square training.
