One of the worst companies to work for

  • Comp & Benefits
  • Work/Life Balance
  • Senior Management
  • Career Opportunities
Current Employee - Agency Director
Current Employee - Agency Director

Pros

Compensation and benefits are fair. Reputation in community is neutral. Close to home. There are some competent people in middle management.

Cons

Unbelievable mis-management! Complete lack of communication throughout organization. Micromanage you every move. You are responsible for SOC's, yet sales reports to sales and has zero accountability for not meeting their goals. All of the executive management, with the exception of Mark Heaney are new.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop! Think for a minute! Perhaps the reason that these HH agencies have been unsucessful is the barriers that management puts out in front of you, that does not allow you to do your job! Regional Directors should have the opportunity to work one on one with their agencies and stop global micromanging

    Really depends on your managers and clients.

    Pros

    I worked there for two years and first had a really crappy case manager and then a really great one. Just depends and it seems it changes often. The rest of the staff was awesome. They do try to make sure you enjoy your clients and there's always opportunities to pick up shifts.

    Cons

    Some of the clients can be frustrating. Some of them are really great and easy too though. Can be kind of difficult to get time off and you have to keep reminding them to have some one cover your shift.

    I have been with Addus for many years. Seniority counts for nothing here. Raises don't exist!

    Pros

    I love taking care of the clients, and offering them the services they need to better their lives. That is the ONLY pro to working here.

    Cons

    They can't provide full time, or even much part time work to long term employees more often then not. I haven't received a raise in over 5 years now, and they say it is due to Health and Welfare not increasing our pay rates? I am sure that is not the case, not for this long anyway. The supervisors do not do their jobs, the client paperwork in the files is never current, nor do they do the employee evaluations on time(once every 2-3 years) but as there are no raises being given, I guess it doesn't really matter that they ignore that part of their jobs as well, right? There is no holiday pay, even if you work major holidays, it's not even time and a half pay rate. There is no paid vacation, even after 10+ years, and there is no paid sick leave, and worst of all, they do not have any kind of insurance or retirement benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give yearly raises to the hard working care providers, even if they are only .25 cents a year. Offer insurance, even if there is a co-pay for employees. Pay time and a half for holidays if a care provider works the holiday. Offer 1 paid sick day every 3 months, which seems totally reasonable. Figure out how you can get the office managers to get their supervisors do their jobs.
