    Pros

    The only thing i can say is helping the clients if you can is what's good but thats about it.

    Cons

    The pay is low and it seem like you work for nothing the work you do is not taken seriously. Have PTO but can't use them really.

    I worked at Gentiva full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Making a difference in patients' and their families lives as they go through their end of life journey, Being able to spend one on one time with the patient.

    Cons

    There is no work-home balance. Case managers stay late at the office in a poor area of town to finish their admission paperwork so they will get paid for the hours of work.(No security guard at office.) If the work is completed at home it is their own time and not reimbursed for pay or comp time. The managers expect too much from the case managers, not caring how many hours they have already worked and continue to pile on more work. This is a dangerous job as nurses must travel two counties at all hours of the night in remote areas by themselves with no protection. This office has not been able to keep a director for the past 2 years. Promotion comes through knowing someone in upper management not by merit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Hire more nurses
    2. Let the case managers get paid for completing their work in the safety of their home
    3. Get on board with EMR and ditch all the handwritten charting
    4.Treat your staff with respect as people rather than just a warm bodies

    Current Employee - RN Field in Pensacola, FL

    I have been working at Gentiva full-time

    Pros

    They do have good benefits, PTO is good for those who have been there greater than 10 years.

    Cons

    Pay per visit is good as long as there are visits. Buzz word now is to "pass off to the paraprofessionals" which means more money to the bottom line. Branch is cyclical in referrals and for RN's and PT's during some times of the year, visits can be low. This means you do not make your productivity nor do you make enough money to live on. Again, it is all about profitability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop a more concise working model that will allow your clinicians to continue to work and get compensated even if referrals are not there. It is very difficult to work daily and then worry if you are going to make "ends meet." Passing off all of the visits to a lesser paid clinician is great for your bottom line, but discouraging to ours. I am forced to look for work elsewhere.

    I have been working at Gentiva full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    People caring for the patients (for the most part) do a great job under stressful conditions.

    Cons

    Communications from Corporate on policies and procedures are rare and not well thought out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remember that the people on the front line are the face of the company to the patients. Make sure they are happy and taken care of. If they are happy, then it will translate into stockholders being happy - not the other way around.

    I have been working at Gentiva full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good team; good camaraderie; good support.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork -- but of course it's healthcare! Also, raises seem to have been non-existent the past 2 or 3 years according to one associate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer paid professional advancement opportunity/continuing education to each employee at least 1 week every 2 years. Also, we are wasting an extreme amount or resources, both in terms of raw materials (paper) and personnel (hours of effort), charting on paper what should already be an electronic charting operation!

    Pros

    It's a paycheck! Good people who enjoy what they do that make work environment enjoyable.

    Cons

    Bad management on all levels: branch and executive directors don't do nothing, corporate office managers/supervisors don't do much. Hourly employees suffer the most. A lot of work for little pay and appreciation. No raises and high health benefit plan. Too much turn over!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Grow up and take some managerial classes. Lose the selfie attitude when you get a upper management job title.

    I worked at Gentiva full-time (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.
