Residents the only good thing
Assistant Manager (Former Employee) –  Cambridge, MDApril 30, 2017
Management cut you down every chance they get. The residents are treated like children instead of adults. They'll give them something and post a note about it then say but if you do this well take it away.
Pros
Loved the residents
Cons
Management one person can ruin it all not professional at all.

Sr Project Manager (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYMarch 30, 2017
I approach each day with a list of important items to complete then am diverted to other projects due to other employees/departments needing information immediately. I've learned to set boundaries while still being helpful to co workers if I am the only person they can rely on for assistance. I am able to accomplish my responsibilities by utilizing methods that assist in prioritizing my work while still being an effective collaborative colleague.

Management is supportive when asked for assistance.

I enjoyed my direct interactions with the majority of the employees.

The hardest part of the job was not seeing any opportunities for career advancement nor an appreciation for a job well done. Not enough laughing at the daily events or collaborating with other colleagues.

The most enjoyable part of the job was learning from and working with my direct report.
Pros
Fabulous kitchen facilities and onsite cafeteria
Cons
Parking

Community Manager (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYDecember 6, 2016
The job itself was great. I learned how to handle all ages of residents. Management was pretty bad. They never answered their phones or returned emails if I had a question. It would usually take few days to get my answer. Their expectations were over the top. They tell you on a Monday that they need things done and give a deadline for 1 or 2 days later.
Pros
Meeting new people all the time
Cons
Micromanaging

All kind of for cares about is getting the job done with minimal help
Supervisor maintenance (Former Employee) –  Elmira New YorkOctober 14, 2016
Conifer has a great training program for safety and you are mandated to take safety courses but they don't expect you to abide by them and they don't abide by them themselves all they care about is the incoming rent
They don't like to spend money on materials and don't follow safety policies and procedures that they have installed
Pros
They spent $3 to buy you breakfast once in awhile
Cons
The health insurance is very expensive and it sucks

Not very good to work for
Manager (Former Employee) –  Rochester, NYAugust 25, 2014
Owners and upper management had a plantation mind set. Employees were a means to an end. That being the wealth of the owners first and foremost. Their leverage was a tough economy in up-state NY. Consistently misled, lied, took advantage of employees, reneged on promises and bonuses. Engaged in some questionable business practices. Co-workers were pretty good overall
Pros
self directed, travel allowance
Cons
