    I worked at Amedisys full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Very,very helpful and friendly group of people. I immediately felt at home. The office was well located, clean and well appointed. Adequate and easily accessible supplies. Much support and education additionally provided by corporate sources. Rewarding to meet patients and determine their needs and make provisions to assist them.

    Cons

    Spent a lot of time driving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the support of new employees.

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

    Pros

    Staff is like family, very supportive & caring. I love the clinicians & office staff.

    Cons

    Pay per visit, easily burned out as the only focus is on productivity. No pay raises, no time for professional development, you must take PTO to do this, high turnover of staff. Company is squeezing the employees financially to make more for the shareholders & upper management. Stressful job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work in the field to see what it is really like!

    I have been working at Amedisys part-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company has full benefits: health insurance, PTO, 401k with match, and decent continuing education opportunities. Can make decent money if you are willing to work a lot.

    Cons

    Large amounts of paperwork that your time isn't reimbursed for, high levels of productivity required. To meet productivity you will end up with overtime every week. Not a good choice if you have a family or outside obligations. Computers frequently crash and support is not available onsite and this wastes a lot of time as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to spend more time working in the field so they have more realistic expectations of what clinicians can accomplish in an 8 hour day. Need to find ways to better support the clinicians in the field and cut down on paperwork and wasted time.

    I worked at Amedisys full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Never a dull moment when working in home health. The visits were diverse and I really enjoyed the home health setting. The pay was good and included mileage.

    Cons

    When hired they state "5 visits minimum per day, beyond that you get to choose how many visits you want" which is a lie. I would easily have 10-13 on my schedule with 100 miles drive for the day and management's response was "It is what it is. I don't have any help for you. Be thankful you have a job"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be compassionate to your employees and appreciate those that work hard. Leave your personal problems at home and be professional at work. Upper management- consider taking the employees seriously when multiple employees from one location are all reporting the same problems.

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time for less than a year

    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.
