    Pros

    Gentiva is growing. The company holds a lot of opportunity for anyone with a great attitude and strong work ethic. They have offices all over the country so there is opportunity to move anywhere you like to advance your career. The pay and benefits are good and the management cares about the employees. The culture is good and focused on providing caring compassionate care.

    Cons

    This company expects a lot from its workers. The industry is in a difficult economic environment due to Medicare cost cutting. The company is facing declining income and is in a cost cutting state so pay increases are not as good as I would have hoped.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay in touch with your employees in the local offices.

    I have been working at Gentiva

    Pros

    Our office is run by a talented team, from the branch director to the scheduler everybody works well together. The local and area managers are always promoting from within and encourage professional development. Recognition is given for hard work and the office even recognizes us for providing great service or care. You can tell that the management team truly care about clinicians and want us to be happy. I love our team and know that together we deliver great patient care.

    Cons

    Paperwork is difficult. Need a computer system that improves efficiency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get rid of paper records. I hear life smart is not good, there has got to be something better than paper.

    Pros

    Everyone works as a team & the manager cares about each of her employees. The PTO is great. Work hours are flexable and everyone is so nice.

    Cons

    Because the company is so large communication can sometimes be an issue. It's a challenge making sure everyone is on the same page.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep an open mind, and make sure you try to visit as many locations as you can. It is very important that employees can put a face with the name.

    Pros

    Thoughtful leadership that balances good business. Good employees are what they desire and are willing to provide for in order to retain them.

    Cons

    Your biggest customer is the federal government; reimbursement for the great job you do is annually devalued.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hesitate to eliminate a game player when you find them.
