    I have been working at Gentiva full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Most of the employees I know, both admin and clinical, really care about the patients, and strive to provide them with ethical, quality care. Good benefits and room for advancement. Lots of LONG-term employees (20+ years with company) show its stability and attractiveness to potential employees.

    Cons

    Because Gentiva is a Home Health & Hospice company, we're limited by process regulations and funding from CMS (Medicare/Medicaid), which creates some annoying blockades from providing quality care quickly and efficiently.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Review salary packages and branch spending habits - instead of occasional holiday parties and lunches, we'd rather be paid more!

    I worked at Gentiva full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent training. good insurance health benefit package.

    Cons

    Too large a territory to manage. all decisions must go through an unseen corporate office. no way of really evaluating what patients should be taken on...central referral expects all to be. branches do not help each other

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Smaller areas of territory would lead to seeing the nurses more often and allow them to have a sense of being a part of something bigger.

    I worked at Gentiva full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    None, unless you count the occasional plate of cupcakes brought in by one of the nurses who obviously just smoked half a pack before she came in

    Cons

    Change of management every other week, upper management were clueless especially regional manager, flippant with policies, no solid method of documentation, did not pay for mileage in full. Expansion with no business plan laid in place, and no raises for clinical staf despite upper management recieving raises every year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit! You are pretentious and about as down to earth as the International Space Station. What you lack in managerial skills you make up for in badly fitting business-casual attire, Jesus fishes and Rapture bumper stickers; if you were on fire I'd drink my own urine rather than put you out.
