    Employee Reviews for Brookdale Senior Living

    3.06 out of 5 stars. Based on 1000 reviews

    Employees of Brookdale Senior Living generally have positive things to say about the company. They appreciate the free parking, paid orientation and training hours, and nice residents. However, they have noted that the health insurance is expensive and the deductibles are high. Additionally, CNA's PTO for the first year is nearly nonexistent and the pay deposit system is unusual. There is also a lack of work-life balance, as employees are often called in on days off due to staff shortages. Employees have also reported that management does not advocate for them and that communication is not always good. They have also noted that the pay rate is low and that the facility is often understaffed. Employees have also reported that the security system is an issue and that the training is too automated. Advice to management includes improving communication, fostering staff development, enhancing benefits, and stopping taking credit for work that the front-line workers conduct.

    The facility is beautiful but more importantly, the staff were so wonderful to my Mom during her stay there. I always felt she was in such capable, caring hands. On top of her care, I always felt that the staff were so supportive to me as well. Beautiful people all around.
