A place to conform to, not to thrive in.

Pros

VITAS gives a lot of time off, and does have good tuition assistance if you're looking into using that. I have built a strong relationship with my coworkers.

Cons

This is definitely an "us versus them" environment between management and non-management. The culture is to conform to the way that they are doing things, even if it sometimes means violating their own policies. There are quite a few practices that non-management gets scolded for, while supervisory and management think it's okay for them.

Advice to Management

Lead by example. Remember that we as employees will absorb how you conduct business and treat people, and adopt that ourselves (whether good or bad).

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits and some very dedicated employees

    Cons

    disorganized management, no career path for non-medical personnel, lack of established processes, little documentation for M&Ps, no formal training program for non-medical staff. Raises have been frozen 2+ years but sales just received new Ipads, Iphones and new applications to sign patient consents.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page. Share information will all areas of the business. Show your employees respect. Stop acting like a small company that wants to play in the big boy sandbox. Share the vision with your employees, get a united purpose and achieve the goal.

    Pros

    Good electronic medical record system
    benefits good

    Cons

    Too big
    No support to staff

    Advice to Management

    Go back to the thinking and support that you had when you were small. Much better place to work then. Allow people to make mistakes and turn it into a learning opportunity. Stop writing people up behind their back so if you can decide on a whim to get ride of them.
