Regional Director of Sales and Marketing (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – September 26, 2017
Top Managers at Corporate office live and breathe culture of Compassion, Humility, Integrity, Excellence and Fun, however- this is completely lost on Divisional Marketing Director. Internal sales directors are not typically experienced but expected to perform above bar and are pushed hard to move volume rather than quality. Product is cheapened by constant deals to get residents in by end or month and the pressure is unbelievable for Executive Directors to keep community running - often with months between key manager replacements.
Great corporate culture
HUGE disconnect with corporate and Divisional managers
Life Enrichment Coordinator (Former Employee) – Tx. – October 13, 2017
I have never seen a company where sales and marketing trump An Excutive Director or operational staff!!!!...... should of been my first red flag, unfortunately I stayed around long enough to watch them tear a thriving community APART!!!..... at the expensive of all our beloved residents!!! BUT hey they complished becoming a "key bank"community!!!..... If you TRULY have Compassion, Humility, and Integrity you won't last!!!!!
Sales Executive (Current Employee) – PA – October 6, 2017
This role is very fast paced and requires dedication outside the normal 9-5 hours, but it is rewarding with pay, kudos and career opportunities. I've seen caregivers get additional training for med-tech positions due to team player, positive attitude and awesome care giving skills. Our residents are #1 priority. Enlivant expects you to work hard, be responsible and accountable and have a team attitude-if you can do those things, you will excel here. From the Regional managers to our staff, we have a great team. Every day, you have the opportunity to have fun, make a difference and grow professionally.
Care Provider (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – October 4, 2017
There were a lot of great things about working here. Coworkers, including caregivers, cooks, housekeeping and nurse staff are all awesome people who care alot about the residents. The problem, like with most senior living places, came from the ED who was fake nice, didnt care about the staff and repeatedly talked down to female staff. Other than that particular ED, it was a great place to work.
Executive Director (Former Employee) – Wisconsin – September 26, 2017
Enlivant is forward thinking overcoming past obstacles of the company they purchased. The team leaders were amazing to work with and really dedicated time to helping the buildings out. There was a great sense of togetherness amongst the communities and support for the management team.
Care Services Manager (Former Employee) – Fort Wayne, IN – September 13, 2017
They tell you that you'll get "unlimited time off." What they don't tell you is that you will work 90-100 hours a week, sometimes over 24 hours at a time. The residents are often not appropriate for AL but are accepted anyway. Staffing budgets are very low.
Housekeeper Supervisor (Former Employee) – Indiana – August 17, 2017
When working with this company I expierenced being taken advantage of in many forms. My pay and hours were cut while I did half of the CNA's jobs and went over and beyond the expectations of my then current position. Managment was honestly laughable. I was greatly disappointed with this company.
Too many layers of Management and lack of direction
Management (Former Employee) – Dubuque, IA – August 9, 2017
This company has layers upon layers of upper management, making it near impossible to figure who to report to, who to listen to and where to turn if there are issues. HR is broken down in regions but has way too many buildings to understand what is happening at each one and can't stay updated on staffing issues unless the staff member themselves reaches out to their specific person. No job seems to be secure as they tend to hire/fire people quickly and without notice of poor performance. Residents constantly complain about understaffing. Work/life balance is mediocre at best, supposed to be able to work days, nights, weekends, holidays at the drop of a hat and if you say you are unavailable then the management takes it out on you. Upper management is quick to judge performance and believes that everyone is replaceable. When hiring new staff members upper management does not let the building staff know status of hiring process and if they are making progress, have no answers for residents and families. Actual building staff and residents are wonderful.
PTO for management in building, staff and residents make it semi-enjoyable
Executive Director (Current Employee) – Western States – August 9, 2017
I have been in the workforce for more than three decades; I find Enlivant one of the few privately held companies, to support, and well, their staff. They are honorable and driven - work live balance does matter and does happen - sometimes you have to be the one to draw the line.
Follow through always happens, while it can be slow does happen
Housekeeper (Current Employee) – Tucson, AZ – August 6, 2017
Stressfull in the sense that there is no support from management team when problems arise with caregivers and daily task. Resident prsonal laundry being lost. Nobody picks up after themselfs in the break room. No solid laundry or shower scheduling.
RCP (Current Employee) – Clarks Summit, PA – July 12, 2017
I love my job when it comes to my residents but management is a joke I think my two year old could run it better than the people who are. I am a RCP but they have us do it all from house keeping, nursing and dietary aids. Truth me told they don't pay me enough to do nursing let along all three.
Chef (Former Employee) – Sandy Springs Place – July 11, 2017
Management has no idea of what's going on in the facility short-handed everyday people calling off firing people because they will stand up for their rights stay away from this place worst company ever to work for
Too many layers that do not provide support. Division doesn't support Region and Region spread too thin to provide adequate support to facilities.
Regional Director (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – July 11, 2017
Culture professed at CEO and COO level does not carry down through all levels. Impressed at interview; unfortunate that I did not find what I heard to be true in practice. Restructure of divisions in April doesn't seem to be helping. Most enjoyable part of the job is the residents and trying to provide support to direct caregivers because they work very hard for little pay. Might be better to pay less at upper levels of management and pay direct caregivers more and provide more education, training and support for them.
Lack of support at Division and Regional level, high turnover in facilities, poor pay for caregivers.
Community Manager (Former Employee) – Nebraska – July 10, 2017
Terrible Management, too many layers of Regional Executives that created busy work taking time away from work that could be accomplished. They claim they are residents first not at all, it was all about the numbers. The area Management is truly greedy & always on us to be 100% full with a waitlist if you're not they come down hard on Marketing. Even the Regional VP would come down on us when we were 100% full & would have a resident pass away. No sympathy or compassion. The Executive Director of our building was very young, friends with many staff & would be unprofessional going partying to the bars the night before their early morning shirts. Run from this company! The owner of the company held webinars regarding their longevity employment statistics were poor with new hires quitting before their 1st year anniversary.
Benefits but not good enough for me to stay under the negativity of management
Management, greedy all about the numbers first not patient care
