Left to struggle, eventually to sink

They do not guide you with proper training, abandon you in a heep of back logged tasks, and then they are on to the next fire. Allot of back biting and gossiping. Everything is chaos!
Pros
Paid weekly
Cons
Very clickish.

Worst place I ever worked
Management (Former Employee) –  New York StateFebruary 9, 2018
There's so much to say. This really is the worst place I ever worked. Between the constant change of management to the inconsistencies in their procedures, you couldn't get anything done and it was a constant run around. Upper management was not readily available and it was like pulling teeth to get responses to simple requests. And, it seemed like everyone was cramming up someone's butt trying to keep their job. HORRIBLE environment!!!
Pros
Benefits were good.
Cons
Rarely got to take full breaks, constant change of management

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

Too many to list

They remodeled for more updated units and office.
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
