    Former Employee - Care Manager in Barrington, IL (US)

    I worked at Sunrise Senior Living full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    A long-term care facility for memory challenged individuals that actually really care about the well-being of their residents and respects and rewards their employees who exemplify kindness, dependability and responsibility.

    Cons

    Pay rate is average and hours can quickly turn into overtime if scheduled staff don't show up for work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. It's a rare thing that long-term care facilities put their residents first and the bottom-line second.
