Pros

There are loads of Pros if you manage to be a member of the good ol boys. Benifits are ok.

Cons

Upper management cannot be trusted, especially the good ol boys in Milwaukee and Wisconsin areas. I retired mainly due to the back stabbing that was part of the every day way of life, The Regional staff is a joke, they spend more time in gossip and hearsay then bringing communities up to standards. Human Resources is of no help, compaining to them is a sure way to get fired, Maintenance of buildings is left to amatuers,who consider duct tape and caulk major repair tools, this is not entirely the MT's fault as they are being led by Regionals that are only concerned with cost.. Dining Services is consumed with cost per meal, needless to say the product served is below standard, bottom line Brookdale cares more for the almighty dollar then the health and welfare of residents and staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the dead weight in Milwaukee and Wiconsin areas, you are to top heavy and it is hurting your company in the long run, have seen way to many great employees leave. Time to reverse this trend.

    Pros

    If you like to be treated like a slave then its the place to apply and you dont mind washing dishes caregiving and doing housekeeping for $8.00 hr then hurry up and apply.

    Cons

    very poor benifits low pay for all the jobs you are assigned to do no matter what dept your in they watch you like a hawk tell you your not allowed to talk to other employees no matter the circumstance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a brain and learn how to make this place not about the money but about the people who live and work there.Stop bringing in people who belong in nursing homes or dementia people who dont belong in assisted living. Learn how to have respect for people and quit thinking its all about you and your bonuses.

    Pros

    The residents are awesome and they have some very hard working employees.

    Cons

    Run from Brookdale! If you are unlucky enough to work there, fight to TAKE your PTO because when you leave, you don't get paid for what you weren't allowed to take. Their regional directors are bullies and do not support their team, they place all kinds of blame on them instead. When I suggested that there was a hostile work environment, I got chewed out and told to get that word out of my vocabulary!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time in the communities and get to know your employees. Your regionals are unrealistic and bullies. You are losing a lot of very good employees because of them being inadequate.
