For a huge corporation, it is fine. Local leadership is great. Upper management is tolerable.

EmployeeWorked in Administration at Brookdale Senior Living Communities, Inc. in Milwaukee, WI at the time of review.

What I like

Local management has always been great. I still get to work and collect a paycheck during the covid-19 crisis, and I feel safe here.

What I dislike

I do not get paid nearly enough. I get treated like a manager for all the bad things managers have to do (work weekends, work late, go to unpaid meetings and parties) but I get none of the perks (I still punch a time clock, must take unpaid lunches, get no annual bonus, and I am paid less than any other manager by a large margin).

Suggestions for improvement

Higher pay for all front line workers.
