    Very sad to say Bayada has lost its focus on client compassion and care and has become solely profit driven and greedy.

    Pros

    The only pros are one to one client care, and the ability for field staff to manage and schedule their own clients...But if you have a productivity commitment this can work against you.

    Cons

    Field staff with advanced educational degrees/experience, ie occupational, physical , speech and nursing professionals are treated like drones.who are expected to see as many clients as possible regardless of productivity/contract commitments.Office Staff is BONUSED on field staff labor.!!!! Professional Clinical judgement is constantly challenged by nonclinical management staff who are compensated by FIELD STAFF productivity. The company is being run by bean counters who have NO idea about patient care...
    Field staff who are purported to be the company's " greatest asset" are treated like second class citizens..Yearly elaborate Award's Weekends, Holiday Parties, Holiday gifts, Quarterly Bonuses,Ongoing Company Paid Continuing Education/training is solely reserved for office staff. PTO time, health insurance and pay vastly differ for office and field staff.. Its as if you work for TWO DIFFERENT companies... Its a shame..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    PLEASE , PLEASE STOP with the " BAYADA HIGH FIVE! " BS...ITS OFFENSIVE , and degrading. Reward and respect your staff for their time and professional capabilities. . Compensation should be commensurate with degree and experience. Grant the field staff the opportunity to participate in corporate sponsored educational seminars, awards weekends and all the bonuses made available to office workers. Shift or spread out your bonus and incentive structure to include your productive field staff , rather than just your office staff...This may actually promote more of a "TEAM" environment! Stop taking PTO time from guaranteed staff that don't meet productivity commitments b/c the census is low!! This creates a very negative mindset and we don't want to help when the census is high....Its a give and take in homecare...PAY field staff for their time!!! .Don't ever forget your original focus which was client care.."Pursue Excellence and Success Will Follow"....Sorry to say, Bayada has truly lost its focus ...
    To Staff reading this review... PLEASE do not answer with your pat and disingenuous response... Try to effect some real change instead..Ac

    I have been working at BAYADA Home Health Care full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Pay rate is better then other agencies. My supervisors are great! Allows family I work with to schedule nurses (we are all regulars)

    Cons

    Communication isn't always up to par. Not many skilled cases. Rents on emails to much to ask for help covering openings due to call outs. Benefits such as PTO could accrue at a much better rate especially after the first 2000 hours(which is when employees become eligible for PTO)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate better, make employees feel appreciated more often, better training for office employees especially for processing payroll, upgrade benefits

    I worked at BAYADA Home Health Care full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only good person to work here is that you get to help people in need and make a difference in their life.

    Cons

    HORRIBLE Benefits
    No support from upper management
    They promote opportunities to advance when in reality that rarely happens
    Over worked and not enough office staff
    They hire a lot of directors from competitors and hence bring that style to BAYADA when that is the style that drove clients, employees and families to leave.
    Some offices do not have on call managers so that means you are on the clock 24/7
    No raises
    It's all about who you know and not your work ethic
    Average life span of a clinical manager at BAYADA is 2 years and going lower

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please wake up and realize what is going on in the service offices. Everyone is stressed out of their mind and want to leave BAYADA. I recently just left BAYADA and know of at least 6 people that have left in the past 2 months. That might be why your job openings are through the roof for office staff. Also please promote directors from within.

    Pros

    Can set my own schedule

    Cons

    Office staff high turn over with poor leadership. Field staff must educate ourselves. Visits are added without advance notice with no ownership of issue by office staff. Emails, requests for help to office nurses go nanswered No education tools for clients. Poor pay rates for visits. Very expensive insurance with high deductables/copays. Paperwork frequently lost after turned in to office staff with field employees being blamed for disorganization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get educated on patient equiptment brfore telling field staff to use said equiptment. Know computer programs so you can train new employees timely.
