    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Sunrise is one of the best companies I have ever worked for. They offer top-notch training and do everything they can for you to be in control of your own success. The residents and families make even the most difficult days worth it! If you do your job well it will not go unnoticed and you will have opportunities to move up within the company. The management team in Frisco goes out of their way to work as a team and support one another as well as the entire team. We always strive for perfection in what we do, from the care we provide to how the community looks...some employees may not like that if they do not take pride in what they do and do not like to work hard! This is not just a paycheck, it is a rewarding career.

    Cons

    There is an emotional aspect to working in senior living, you get very attached to the residents and their families and it is hard to lose someone. Just like working for any company there can be office politics or drama from time to time but it is minimal and stomped out quickly. (It isn't nearly as much as other companies I have worked for!)

    Pros

    You get attached to the residents and some of your coworkers

    Cons

    - Your duties extend over that of a CNA, such as making plates, setting tables, activities, laundry, light housekeeping . Quality of care is diminished

    Advice to Management

    Stop being cheap and hire more people for more jobs instead of overworking your short staffed care managers
