    Pros

    I thought it would be for growth and training but I was lied to. So I have no pros at this time other than a couple of the BD members that I met.

    Cons

    Empty promises, poor upper management. Daily conference calls for BD team that takes way to much time out of the field, they are liars about their expectations. I was miserable after my first month there.

    I worked at Amedisys full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -Meet and spoke to some interesting folks; there are still peers from this place that I still keep up with.
    -Gained needed experience.

    Cons

    -Very poor communication among management amongst teams intra-departmentally and across the board inter-departmentally (i.e. Operations pushing out updates with out informing tech support, tech support receives an overwhelming number of incoming phone calls and complaints, nobody knows why the day's volume is so high so they finally start asking questions, Ops. confesses to an update, a message is sent out via national support phone line making staff aware of issues, metrics are so poorly flawed from the volume of the day that management then turns to their own support staff to point the finger, berate, and question us as to what the problem was).
    -Blatant distrust of employees despite numerous times of stressing during on-boarding that mgmt. has your back in a heated situation.
    -While processes are always changing to try to keep their heads above water, if a support tech forgets any minor details of the new policies, then that employee is berated for not keeping up, or accused of not taking good enough notes. In essence, it's assumed a problem is never fault of management.
    -There is way too much trickle down in this company; the little man doing the everyday work never gets the credit deserved.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Management should remember that the employees have lives outside of work and can't stay late all the time because you're short-handed.
    -Don't make the people that make you look good angry.

    Terrible place to work! This company only cares about the management team and money!

    I worked at Amedisys

    Pros

    The patients are the only good thing about working for this company.

    Cons

    I have attached a copy of my notice turned in on 9-15-14. It should tell you what you need to know. I worked at the office in Homewood, AL. They posted my previous position today. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone! You will ruin your financial stability and vehicle! They don't care! They talked bad about the other aids! They also asked me to lie to another aid about how much they paid me because they didn't want to have to give her a raise. Terrible terrible terrible!!!

    Amedisys, I had my faith in this company. I quit a faithul job I had previously to work here. Everything was all in well at first. I had a few typical problems during my journey at the Tuscaloosa office but, nothing unexpected. Work is work. Although this office has completely destroyed my faith in the company all around. Ater the first few (what i thought where mistakes) paychecks missing $200-$350. Which took 4 weeks to be refunded the first couple of times. Although now i'm not so sure that it was a mistake at all. I tried my hardest to be a respectable employee. I put my financial stability down the drain working here. It caused so many problems in my life, from negative equity on my vehicle to near depression. I was thinking there may be a possibility working for this company would lead me to bankruptcy at the age of 21. Every dime i have earned here nowhere near covered the gas to work nor, damiage on my vehicle. (If you have'nt been around latey maintnence is extremely expensive.) Not to mention i was promised to have been paid mileage from the time i left my home until the the time i arrived home at the end of my day, because i travel over 100 miles a day for this company. That promise was the only way I could stay. Slowly they took both from me on the sly. Convienced me that I would "equal out" by switching to hourly pay. I was worried to death about putting myself in the hole. I thought this company had more respect for such a loyal employee. They didn't and, never have. I know that it is my situation but, If we didn't have to work to live noone would be here anyway. I was later promised that i would be getting the BOS position in the office by the DOO and BOM. They informed me that i would be trained in September. Time went on and I never heard anything about training dates. I was completely counting on that position to get my life back together. Today, September 8th 2014 I was informed there was never a position for me. That position was not to be filled at this time. When the time came i would have an opportunity to apply but not gaurantied the spot. I was also informed " If I wanted to get a second job to put more money in the checking account on the days wasn't needed here, feel free." Are you serious? I have never been so insulted in my life. This company has been stringing me along and has been nothing more than a bourdon to me. This my notice that I will not be back.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule-when you are allowed to follow your schedule and not cover other employees who can not maintain THEIR schedule. Decent but not great pay-especially for the amount of work expected.

    Cons

    Inexperienced managers with poor leadership abilities, documentation process is redundant and long, extra work/hard work not appreciated, bottom-line aka money is the most important to the company NOT patient care, Nurses expected to get referrals when this job belongs to account executives, mangers do not support employees, often work after hours due to extensive documentation on poor working laptops.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire qualified leaders-DOOs and Clinical Directors, SUPPORT the FRONT LINE EMPLOYEES-without them you are NOTHING! Additional training, in person training-the online junk does not cover important topics. Care about more than money these are actual PEOPLE that are being cared for NOT products.

    Pros

    I love taking care of my patients!

    Cons

    Management is terrible. Things are constantly changing and completely chaotic. No matter how much you do it is never enough and you are never recognized for the good you do, only that they need you to do more. The job that was presented during the interview did not turn out to be the reality once hired. Very little training and rarely anyone to answer questions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. They wouldn't listen anyway

    Pros

    pay rates for oasis is high.

    Cons

    Management is very cliquey, unprofessional, and untruthful and bully their staff!
    Office staff is unhelpful, gossip with management, and show no concern for staff or patients.
    Pay rate is good but considering amount of documentation it equals minimum wage!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Out with the old, in with the new!
