I think of my position at Odyssey as a vocation not as a job. The pay is just an added bonus.

Pros

You are working with the patients and families when they are at the hardest crossroads of this life and it is an opportunity to help the family and patient let their loved one go on to the next life. It is the most rewarding experience to be part of the last things in this life. It really gives you a new perspective about how much family means and how little material things mean. The benefits are great for those who are full time.

Cons

You receive a schedule but you really can't go by that as your work hours. There is not always a case going when you are scheduled. The upper management tries to give everyone equal time but Crisis Care is not a real sure thing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Maybe Management can give the Crisis Care team office hours in filing or stocking the supply room or helping others that work in the office that may be behind and would welcome a day's help from one of the Crisis Care team.

    Cons

    Horrible company for care provided to employees.

    Unbearable caseload.
    Constant changes without explanation or training.
    Micromanaged by CEO and CFO who have never done this job.
    Ridiculous cost for health benefits.

    No room for promotion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve morale. Go back to having values. Need to provide care and concern for your employees. Quit the corporate world buy outs and focus on your employees needs. Not every office in the country can operate under one "model." Understand that each office has needs unique to their area. STOP the blitzing. It is a waste of time and takes precious time away from my patients.
