    Great pay, benefits and support from team members.

    Cons

    Company grew too fast but didn't plan accordingly. Some employees didn't want to follow policies and procedures. Management and Board wanted to make profits in not so legit ways, a lot of legal issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be legit!! Plan accordingly, don't try to grow so fast.

    Pros

    tablets worked well. colleagues were great

    Cons

    Had you driving all over in your territory and asked to cover other territories in same day. Multiple phone calls during the day. Patient care suffered due to all the driving, phone calls, documentation, meetings

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    don't ask your only PT to cover other territories on top of a 50 mile territory

    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.

    Former Employee - Physical Therapist in Tucson, AZ

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

    Pros

    Flexibility with scheduling. Good electronic documentation system. Good initial orientation training to home healthcare documentation and legal requirements.

    Cons

    Staff not notified when office procedures change, then reprimanded for not following appropriate procedures. Bullying of specific employees that performed well, ultimately resulting in less work being given to those employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Critical conversations with management and more involvement of the Director in the daily activities of the supervisors is needed. Inconsistencies in communication between the office staff and field staff lead to significant errors and re-work. Excessive travel time between clients is a significant issue with this company, and should be addressed in a meaningful way not only for improved employee satisfaction, but for improved company productivity.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Chicago, IL

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

    Pros

    The company had great benefits and good field nurses were allowed to make nursing decisions and carry out what was needed for their patients.

    Cons

    The company managed to find supervisors that were somehow embedded in their job with no to barely any supervision from the main office - these were supervisors that made undue hardships and burdens upon the field staff in the most ridiculous way - such as asking us to see impossible numbers of pt's a day, or to see pt's in cities tat were miles and miles away from each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get better supervisors in your Chicago area offices, esp the one on Lake Shore Drive, you have people that have been in the same job for years and have no one overseeing their miserable work that they assign to their staff nurses. Don't you ever wonder why there is so much turnover in your Chicago offices?
