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

    Pros

    Most of the employees I know, both admin and clinical, really care about the patients, and strive to provide them with ethical, quality care. Good benefits and room for advancement. Lots of LONG-term employees (20+ years with company) show its stability and attractiveness to potential employees.

    Cons

    Because Gentiva is a Home Health & Hospice company, we're limited by process regulations and funding from CMS (Medicare/Medicaid), which creates some annoying blockades from providing quality care quickly and efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review salary packages and branch spending habits - instead of occasional holiday parties and lunches, we'd rather be paid more!

    I have been working at Gentiva full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good team; good camaraderie; good support.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork -- but of course it's healthcare! Also, raises seem to have been non-existent the past 2 or 3 years according to one associate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer paid professional advancement opportunity/continuing education to each employee at least 1 week every 2 years. Also, we are wasting an extreme amount or resources, both in terms of raw materials (paper) and personnel (hours of effort), charting on paper what should already be an electronic charting operation!

    I worked at Gentiva full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This company has excellent benefits. They offer paid time off days as well as seven additional paid holidays. Gentiva has an outstanding compliance department. They offer education and training as well for each employee.

    Cons

    Although this company offer tuition reimbursement there is not a lot of flexibility from management in regards to your schedule.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each and every employee that work for this company must be dedicated and a hard worker so i would ask that management would honor employees with kind words, thoughts of appreciation, bonuses, and pay increase ect.
