Pros: great budget, high standards, excellent training
Cons: very demanding job, little support, poor management, and high turnover
Sunrise as an organization (and at the corporate level) is a leader in the senior living industry and wants the best for its residents and employees. They have very high standards and many quality initiatives or "signatures" as they are referred to (although some are unrealistic and very difficult to maintain without a true team effort), are very policy-oriented. and provide excellent training. They have significantly improved their operations in recent years, but have a ways to go to truly be the employer of choice.
However, this particular community (Newtown Square, PA) is absolutely horrific, with very low census, high turnover (particularly with department heads/coordinators), a very weak and inept Executive Director and fractured management team, a highly stressful environment with little support when it really is needed, low employee and resident morale, and a building that needs some major cleaning and upkeep,
I would strongly advise anyone who is considering a position at this particular Sunrise community to STAY AWAY and save yourself from a miserable and agonizing work experience!!
