Exploited, taken advantage of, expected to work 7 days per week!

Community Relations Director (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA (US)

I worked at Emeritus Senior Living

ProsThey have an excellent national sales director. On paper, things could be great!

ConsThe company micromanages everyone including salaried professionals. They expect you to execute external marketing goals/tasks and stay out of the building to accomplish these goals, however, the internal manager expects you to be in the community all day to do internal community tasks, tours, phone calls, meetings etc. I have never worked for a company that tells you they don't believe in flex time and that your job is a 7 day per week job (after you start working of course, not during the interview!) Rather than focusing on the positive accomplishments and results of their staff, they focus on micromanaging the process. They expect you to complete forms for every phone conversation and document marketing tasks in their database. At the same time, the regional director and VP harp on you for not being out the building most of the day. They underpay their worker bees and overpay their management. Management is constantly sending out self-congratulatory emails to one another yet ignore basic courtesy and respect to their workers. Expect emails 24 hours a day from management including on Christmas! I wish I had never accepted employment here.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo some research...micromanagement doesn't work. It may work in the short run for your stockholders but exploited/unhappy workers and high employee turnovers will hurt you in the long run.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Overworked, underpaid, and exploited

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living


Pros: All of the good reasons revolve around the other employees and residents, not the management or atmosphere.… Cons: Employees (and possibly management) are exploited, overworked, etc. I have seen pay raises and evaluations forgotten, employees feeling compelled (but not told) to work… Advice to Senior Management: Learn basic management skills such as communication, appropriate positive feedback, goal setting and coaching.… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
