Pros

Senior Advocacy platform makes it easy for referral sources to differentiate the services offered from those competing home health agencies are selling. Great sales training, and support (depending on your director).
Lots of education on senior care issues is offered to clinicians and the CEU's are free. This is a nice place to practice as a field clinician; you will gain knowlege and experience.

Cons

The Senior Advocacy platform is viewed as marketing gimmick to attract high-paying Medicare clients. The branch employees, in general do not buy into this platform, which counteracts the sales effort in the communities we serve! Once the new sales reps realize this, they are disenchanted and sorry they came to work here. Few reps last more than 18 months.

Also, there is a terrible culture at this company, and it seems to start with top brass.

Advice to Management

Listen to your employees, and show them respect when dealing with them. Sales reps feel as though they are the lowest form of life.

It is common knowlege that poor manners and unprofessional behavior from senior leadership and management at the regional level is tolerated by officers of the company. It does have an effect on performance and results. It really does trickle down. Hire a consultant to address the culture.

Consider paying incentive/bonus on non-Medicare patients.

    Pros

    Company offers very good services. Clinicians are well-trained. Training at headquarters is good. Good industry to get experience in due to aging population.

    Cons

    No room for advancement; terrible health benefits; poor management; terrible mileage reimbursement; non-competitive salary; very poor bonus structure. Lack of tools available to Account Executives that are standard in industry-- expense account; decent auto reimbursement, computer reports to track sales. You work very hard for very little reimbursement; bonus is awful!

    Advice to Management

    Sales reps should report to someone with sales esperience. You will lose more money due to high turn-over of unhappy reps.
