Great employees to work with.

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

ProsThe 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.

ConsThe 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 Senior ManagementMy 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.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Short sighted company

I have been working at Brookdale Senior Living full-time


Pros: Professional wages are good; staff are patient oriented and caring… Cons: Caregivers poorly educated/supported and underpaid. Corporate culture is command and… Advice to Senior Management: Offering SNF level care requires properly trained caregivers! Retaining staff should be a higher priority for company success.
