Pros

- With a Degree, it's easy to get a job here, and the experience looks great on your resume.
- The services provided to the community are needed, making your job feel somewhat relevant to the greater good.
- Very generous with titles.

Cons

- Overall culture of fear due to micro-management of the CEO. Everyone from the bottom up throw each other under buses to avoid backlash.
- Management seem blind to the fact that company culture is what leads to their 90% turnover rate.
- Office gossip is overwhelming, at every level.
- Salaried individuals are taken advantage of. There's an enormous disconnect between low wages and the overtime one is expected to put in.
- Although the services provided to the elderly population are important, many of the physicians have malpractice suits against them.
- The culture of fear, gossip, and being taken advantage of will ultimately lead you away from this company. Managers that tolerate the treatment they receive by the CEO are generally the types of people that like to pay that type of treatment forward. Also, many managers don't hold the people skills or education that their staff does. Talented, professional people generally use their roles here as a stepping stone into another company.
- Everything that is beyond your control will be your fault.

Advice to Management

The market has changed. The unemployment rate is falling. There is no way you can retain talented staff unless management behavior and the low salary structure change.

    Pros

    Almost impossible to get fired unless you stealing money from the owner. Incompetent? Rude? Apply here! The pay is OK. There are a lot of companies out there offering worse.

    Cons

    Unprofessional. People being condescending to patients on the phone. Yelling at each other. Petty gossip. Doctors with drug and alcohol problems and malpractice suits. Management plays favorites usually towards the newest people so you might think you have a good job for the first bit before they turn on you. Management deliberately pits employees against each other, promising the same promotion to more than one person to see how much extra work they will do while in suck-up mode, and then hiring from outside anyways. Constant promises that it's not always like this and it will be better as soon as whatever happens. If you don't work overtime they accuse you of not valuing your time as much as some people but if you work too much overtime they accuse of you stretching your hours. You'll see things happen that are just plain wrong (like violating labor laws and stuff) and they'll tell you that this how everybody does business so just deal with it.

    Pros

    - Rapid expansion of branches (new offices)
    - Jobs are easily acquired by college grads
    - Full time employees are eligible for benefits after 90 days
    - Interviews are simple

    Cons

    - Job descriptions promise advancement and management training, but that hook line is used to attract recent college grads. Advancement may come sooner than with other companies, but is due to the fact that the turnover rate of the company is about 90%.
    - Management is very young and inexperienced; only out for personal gain.
    - The office environment is very negative.
    - Gossip within the work place is in over-abundance.
    - The company is not as invested in the quality of care that they claim to provide to seniors. Many of the doctors have malpractice or harassment actions against them (which can be easily be found because it is public record).
    - CEO uses scare tactics
    - Very unprofessional. After an employee is fired, a "30 second dance party" is announced over the PA system.
    - Anything that you share with management (example: reason for being out sick, personal problems) are not kept private. That information is openly shared with all employees.
    - Employees are severely overworked and underpaid. If you log too much overtime (which often happens), the company puts you on salary. Since going salary, I have increased my weekly hours by 10 hrs per week. They definitely take advantage of your time.
    - The company promotes alcohol consumption. If you do not drink, you will feel extremely isolated at company events. We had an employee who did not consume alcohol because of a religious background and management was not accepting of them. In fact, they made that employee the butt of their jokes.
    - The company has a high turnover rate and because of this, employees are often responsible for the work of 2+ positions.
    - 100 day reviews are not completed on time by management.
    - HR has now moved in-house which benefits the company because they are able to get away with/sweep more issues under the rug.
    - Cold calls are made to seniors who have illnesses that affect their memory. Appointments are pushed on them even if they are reluctant. Sometimes the company will do drive-bys to the seniors homes if they were unable to confirm an appointment over the phone.
    - The company is concerned more about the number of patients seen (Medicare reimburses based the # of visits) and not the quality of care these patients are receiving.

    Advice to Management

    Realize that a high turnover rate indicates a problem from within. Take a serious look at how your branches are managed... and hire more experienced employees starting from the top down.
