Low pay for employees, low rent behavior by managers

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)

ProsExperience working under all kinds of adverse conditions, all kinds of management out to cheat you of fair pay for work performed. It will teach you a lot of the underhanded ways corporations take advantage of workers in health care, by using their good nature and willingness to help people, to trap them into working for almost nothing. Sadly, they succeed in this for awhile, until the employee wises up and leaves. Experiencing this kind of treatment can be good, helps you to recognize it when it happens again, so you can get out faster.

ConsLow pay, no benefits, no-brained management or worse, scheming management. Tons of paperwork for no pay. The per visit pay scale is a joke. The office staff can make it unprofitable for you to work by scheduling your work visits way far apart so your driving time isn't compensated. Pay for being on call is ridiculous. Did I mention low pay?

Advice to Senior ManagementMake an honest living instead of spending your time scheming how to get out of paying your workers a fair share of the profits you make from milking the Medicare program and private insurance companies out of money meant to go toward health care. Share more with the people who actually do the work. They deserve it, not the shareholders. If someone is going to profit from health care funds, if more funds are going to be paid out than need to be, then people in direct care should do at least ok. NONE of your nurses or home health care aides are earning a decent livng.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
