I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care (more than 5 years)

Pros

Good working enviroment. Paid time off is very good in the industry. Managers are flexible with their staff. The company offers good benefits and working hours. Opportunities for advancement are available to those with initiative.

Cons

Too many managers coming and going. Too many wage freezes. Lots of favoritism.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen better to the people at the front of your business. Compensation needs to be improved. Very low at many levels

    I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There are none anymore. When Hugh and Esther sold to the plumbers quality and ethics went away and we're replaced with money hungry sales rep and inappropriate admissions

    Cons

    They do not follow their values. If you know what is the right thing to do you will be treated terribly and retaliated against for trying to do the right thing

    Taken for granted, without any appreciation.

    I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care

    Pros

    The only thing I can think of is the actual experience of being a hospice nurse. Although extremely challenging, it is the most rewarding work I have ever done.

    Cons

    Not feeling supported by management
    Working 3 weekends every month
    No advantage to having "seniority"
    No loyalty to employees
    Poor communication between mgmt and employee
    Minimal yearly wage increases
    Huge travel expectation w/o adequate mileage reimbursement
    Obvious discrimination by mgmt
    Unfair work practice

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Vitas has changed dramatically in the 6+ yrs that I was there. I use to be proud to work for Vitas and always passed that on to our patients and families. But that changed in the last year. We were no longer about "patients and families first", only about the dollar and whom could be taken advantage of to get it. I have never worked anywhere with such poor employee moral. It really is difficult to do a great job for our patients and families feeling so unsupported. Talk to your staff!!! At least "act" as if they matter!!!
