    Worked directly with absolutely Great people but Corporate management seems completely focused on their balance sheet.

    RN Case Manager (Former Employee)
    North Atlanta, GA

    ProsThe character and compassion of the (disposable) people who you work with. ...... And if you like being used, lied to and then unceremoniously discarded with one day's notice & a two week severance package, Gentiva is a wonderful place.

    ConsCorporate Leadership's history (and future) of closing offices and terminating employees because last month's plan is changed to not being in this month's plan. ..... One day you're told that you're doing a great job and the next you're told that you're no longer needed. Gentiva has become a company that makes money off their employee's compassion but has no compassion for it's employees.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou're on the path to move from being the "biggest player in the market" to becoming a business school "case study" on how to completely loose sight of what made you successful. .... And changing your name to try to avoid the bad reputation you're building in the market is not "a fix".

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    No Pay raise in over 2 years, now cutting pay

    Physical Therapist (Current Employee)
    Baltimore, MD

    ProsDid have stable staff, but now heavy turn over. No incentives to stay with company

    ConsAll management cares about is money, poor communication. HR support is worthless. No response for promised employee referral bonus, no raises and now they are talking about cutting pay so they can buy up more agencies. They should invest in their employees and grow responsibly

    Advice to Senior ManagementGrow responsibly, Too top heavy with management and programs that don't work. Administration doesn't listen to clinical needs, they are more focused about rolling out trendy programs that don't work, so marketing has something to talk about.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hostile working environment - for me

    Care Team Coordinator (Current Employee)
    Roseville, CA

    ProsAt first, it was great, and I created my own niche as being in charge of the medical records room, as no one else was at the time. I made sure we were in compliance with all laws

    ConsThey set me up to not get my work done on time by asking me to do a lot of other things. one gal that had been there a long time apparently felt threatened by me, she was about my age and we had both gained 40 lbs. I lost mine, but she didn't. She told everyone that I was doing illegal drugs - soooo not true.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI had an excellent relationship with my boss until after 3 1/2 years, I went on a vacation. When I came back, he had somehow been turned against me and interrogated me for at least an hour about doing drugs. I am a 56-year-old grammy!!!!!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Inconsistent Management

    MCP (Former Employee)

    ProsGood benefits, a lot of days PTO, Salary good

    ConsThe squeaky wheels get taken care of but those that go over and above to be team players get taken advantage of. Not enough discipline for those who do not do their job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsistency among management team in the office.

    ProsRapport with patients/families; flexibility of schedule; not stuck in an office all day.

    ConsHard to be productive due to number of staff meetings and distractions from chatty coworkers; no private office space for phone calls, etc.

    Very stressful environment with constant staffing changes. Learned a lot about HR administration but too many chiefs.

    Human Resources Administrator (Former Employee)
    Overland Park, KS

    ProsInformation learned was very valuable for HR career.

    ConsToo much turnover and confusion of benefits for staff to administer and understand. Technology vendors hired were not competitive for this department's needs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit blaming the contract staff for all of your fulltime employee's past mistakes. 2007-2008 contract employment.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
