Pros

Company is quality care focused and promotes an emphasis on regulatory compliance. Company has a strong core competence and is stable.

Cons

Some departments/areas are great as the executive management of those areas are competent and have a focus on getting the job done well and are willing to dig in and help. However, there are some areas, which you will find in all large companies, where the upper management is allowed to perform outside of the norm and/or there is not enough oversight of that area that others really know the extent of what goes on in those areas. It is those areas that need the most scrutiny.

Advice to Management

Perform random and anonymous peer and management reviews in all areas to determine if there is a consistent pattern in particular areas that needs to be addressed. This would apply to your corporate as well as subsidiary entities. Although retaliation is not tolerated, it is still a real concern as there are ways that it can be done and made to appear non-retaliatory specifically in subsidiary entities where corporate is less involved.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for some departments. Some people get assistance in time of need if they are well known/liked. Open door policy for some management. Company constantly tries to improve efficiency.

    Cons

    *low pay
    *favoritism gets promotions instead of skill
    *incentive plan not favorable to employees
    *attendance policy stricter than most area companies
    *poor leadership/management
    *insurance too expensive

    Advice to Management

    Make improvements to benefit your hard-working employees instead of benefit people in management. Change your "culture" to remove the favoritism and the cliques.

    Most unorganized Home Care company I have ever worked for. The management did not listen to concerns of its employees.

    Pros

    The pay and benefits were excellent. The package they offered was far better than anywhere at the time. They did not miss the mark here.

    Cons

    The company had no commitment to their employees. They had poor management staff.

    Advice to Management

    Trust the group of employees and the feedback they give. When 10 out of the 12 staff have the same concerns, then the concerns should be addressed.
