    Pros

    One on one patient care. Great working team of OTs and PTs. Geographic treatment area.

    Cons

    Heavy repetitive and duplicative paper work. An evaluation with Safe Strides would require 2+ hours of just writing.

    Advice to Management

    Add a professional therapist to the documentation team with the goal of reducing paperwork burden to health professionals. The documentation could be MUCH more relevant and effective and MUCH less burdensome. Don't simply keep adding new forms to the job requirements.

    Pros

    Large company... lots of areas for growth... many programs to get involved in. They have a career track if you are degreed.

    Cons

    Not making enough of an impact in the market where I live. Strong nationally, weak in my geographical area

    Advice to Management

    Make a big deal over accomplishments of the employees who go the extra mile...

    Pros

    Helping people get Home Health services. I learned how to use electronic databases: ROI, Allscripts, Epic, ProviderLink & how to upload patient information into GentivaLink.

    Cons

    Had to work more than I was at home & I had just gotten married. The hours kept increasing with no sight of relief.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to be a precense & not holed up in their offices. They need to be open to suggestions & have meetings when there are changes instead of sending out emails & assuming everyone has read them when there over 500 or more emails a day.

    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

    Good benefits, pay and good software to do paperwork.

    Cons

    Management very disorganized; Unrealistic Expectations for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Need to recognize the importance of staff who create the company.... the ones in contact with patients and that bring in the money! Requiring too much brings low patient quality of care and poor outcomes. Bottom line seems more important than patient care.

    Good Company; Fair to Poor Management

    Cons

    Heavy Management Disorganization; Unrealistic Expectations from Employees.

    Advice to Management

    RECOGNIZE VALUE OF EMPLOYEES/STAFF. REMEMBER, WITHOUT FAITHFUL EMPLOYEES NO PATIENT RETENTION. TOO MUCH FOCUS ON BOTTOM LINE PROFITS. NEEDS TO REFOCUS ON PATIENTS FIRST ALWAYS.
