Pros

The employees are friendly for the most part.

Cons

**No raises in 3 years for most employees, despite the fact that the company has made profits.
**Don't keep promises to employees.
**Upper management (VPs) show very little concern for employees.
**Vacations are "unofficially" frowned upon.
**Little room for advancement.

Advice to Management

**stop micromanaging
**get some training for your managers so they can at least attempt to manage well.
**Regular raises would go a long way toward helping morale and retention rates.

    Pros

    mission statement, they do believe in this and pay attention to complaints and try to resolve
    friendly co workers
    flexibility

    Cons

    corporate greed
    no raises in three years, retention bonus based on nine months salary for one year of work.
    won't pay for clinical excellence in manager positions, as a result, sub par line level management compromises quality

    Advice to Management

    Use the continual 20 percent increase in profits each year to give your workers a raise. Listen to them in regard to clinical issues and praise them more, give them incentive to further their education. Offer tuition reimbursement. Stop being greedy

    Pros

    They treat their therapists well so it's good for them. They're always hiring so you can get a job. They're very structured and strict if you like that. They do take care of their patients and will do more for those patients than other home care agencies.

    Cons

    No raises, difficult to get anything accomplished as everything is approved by upper management who micromanages everything. Maybe that's why they make so much money, they control everything. Bonus plans for sales staff and managers is so poor, and they fix it from year to year to make sure the carrot is difficult to get. Field staff, office staff and directors and clinical managers work so hard and deserve more than they get. Virtually no retirement so there isn't a lot to keep you here as an employee.

    Advice to Management

    Your employees are your best asset. You need to have them in the conversation. They have been and will continue to be the key to your success.
