    Pros

    Good benefits and vacation time.

    Cons

    Never enough employees to do all the work that needs to be done in a day.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring upper management and hire more employees for work in the office of the branch.

    Pros

    The positive relationships/mentorships established during the duration of my career.
    The variety of benefits options
    Flexibility of hours
    PTO

    Cons

    The company as a whole is a good company but management is horrible specific to HR. They only care about themselves and not their staff. Many think because they have an executive title it gives them a right to speak to others in disrespectful manners.

    Advice to Management

    Attn HR management: Stop thinking about yourselves and see the potential in hard working employees and allow he/she to grow within the organization versus blocking them because you feel some type of way.
    Think before you make irrational decisions because at the end of the day it will come back to bite you! WHAT GOES AROUND..COMES AROUND (M.T)

    Pros

    Compensation is great, the co-workers are great, benefits are great. The company values are excellent. Office environment was pleasant and free coffee,tea,cocoa was provided.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was terrible. Managers would expect you to put everything you had into your job but would then turn around and screw you over. Technical management had no loyalty at all to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Review current technical directors and replace with better models.

    Pros

    I worked in IT for 6 years. Most of the people here are friendly, but there are a lot of miserable people here too.

    Cons

    Completely disorganized. Projects never complete. Scope creep city. Peter Principle case study.

    Advice to Management

    Quit

    Pros

    Flexibility, professional development, sense of community within certain work groups, compensation and benefits.

    Cons

    Disconnect between executives and office/field staff, perceived lack of transparency and internal politics

    Advice to Management

    Get to know the employees better and be more open about the things that impact them. Good or bad, they're more likely to accept changes better.

    Pros

    Workload is not too heavy. Get to work on some interesting projects. Some people are really good at their jobs and you can learn from them.

    Cons

    For a services company, it's shocking how little they value or invest in their employees. Corporate in particular gets the shaft. We are considered completely replaceable. The IT department is incompetent, with outdated systems and a lack of integration across the company. The company is an old boys club, hiring friends to do jobs they aren't qualified for. This company is ripe for a gender discrimination lawsuit.

    Advice to Management

    Quit chasing the share price, think long-term and invest in human capital.

    Pros

    full benefits, 401k match, paid time off (but you'll have to fight others for the specific time)

    Cons

    Operations didn't understand how to be sales minded and approach customers from a customer service perspective to ensure a positive experience. Constant battle between sales and ops. Numbers were set based on prior year performance and production was based on ability of clinical staff to perform. Fast moving environment with many moving parts. Not everyone on team able to work to the demands placed by corporate.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone in branch is so over worked, they are stretched beyond capacity and it leads to burn out and frustration of everyone. Have to allow people the PTO they request... Ridiculous to have to fight for requested time off

    Pros

    It is centrally located off 285 for easy access on and off. Their color is wine.

    Cons

    Once a position has been dissolved, or there is some down-sizing, this company lays you off despite positions open in another location or even in the same location. You must apply as if you were not a former employee to be considered.

    Advice to Management

    How is not relocating current employees who have already gone through a 4 week orientation and know 'Gentiva's way' being fiscally responsible? You'd rather spend the money to orient others for a month before they can actually start work? Hmmm.

    Pros

    Hard working staff that wanted to do a good job for the company.

    Cons

    You will be 'let go' for bringing things to their attention that they don't want anyone to know about.

    Advice to Management

    You can't hide bad business practices forever...the issue caught up with you, didn't it?
