    I have been working at Amedisys full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    they are always hiring because turnover is so high, so if you need a job, this is the place. patients and families are wonderful. Good staff in field.

    Cons

    wasteful of time and money. poor decision-making. take on too many patients when not enough staff. was encouraged at one point to break a regulation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    there will be greater profit if good employees are retained by being given appropriate number of visits. Check NHPCO for typical visits per day and week then work to hire appropriately. IT is very expensive to be constantly hiring and training.

    I have been working at Amedisys

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility, company car, good pay

    Cons

    Poor upper management, lack of communication, never know who to answer to. Things change on a day to day basis. Multiple daily emails outlining what you have failed to accomplish. Bonuses are held if you fail to force a Dr to complete face to face.

    Pros

    Fast paced, never boring. If you're in a good care center with good leadership then it feels like family. Get to make a real difference for very sick or elderly people.

    Cons

    Too much work required of every person based on the staffing model. Unrealistic expectations from senior leadership. Lower pay rates for clinicians and office staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more understanding of the pressure and staffing shortages.

    Pros

    More work than you will ever accomplish in a day. You will not be bored every day is different. There is career mobility.

    Cons

    Compensation is the lowest in the industry. Depending on your director and area Vice President you can be hen pecked about possible overtime. Stretches the nurses too thin with unrealistic productivities. LPN's required to see 35 patients in 40 hours without going into overtime and to provide "quality" care. RN's have to see all the Oasis visits plus regular visits -some LPNs we're making more money than RNs because LPNs could work the ALFs And see 12-15 pt's a day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Every clinical manager and up should know how to perform home visits. Every director, avp, vp should be required to do 5 home visits every quarter so they do not loose touch with field when they make business decisions that impact the field and patient care
