    I have been working at Hospice Advantage part-time

    Pros

    Administer and Director are great people to work for. Got hired on right after office opened and the Green Bay office made fantastic strides, by having a caring and loving field staff and office crew.

    Cons

    To work any hopice agency, you really have to dot your " i " and cross yor " t "s, to ensure any success.

    I worked at Hospice Advantage full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    So much care and help from the corporate staff. Employees generally care that I knew how to follow procedure and helped me learn. People are so genuine and down to earth. The vacation time and benefits are outstanding! The nurses are amazing. These people give their heart and soul to their patients day in and day out. From the aids to the clinical directors, these people are in the business of comforting other in their time of need.

    Cons

    Since it is a hospice agency with many offices, some are stronger than others. It is definitely apparent that not all offices are well-run and well-managed. They don't have the right staff running the show or caring to learn all that the corporate employees are there to teach them. Unfortunately, I think this causes some to have mismanaged offices and finger point down to their employees below them.

    Advice to Management

    The executive directors and clinical service directors in local offices really have to be stellar leaders. They need to be accepting of the company's processes and ways of doing things. Once they have that it is much easier to lead a team and build a successful office. Hire Leaders. Promote Great Team Leaders from Within!

    I worked at Hospice Advantage full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The money was great! Uniforms are provided. Given most of the supplies needed to perform your job. My manager (one of two) was on leave when the events described below occurred. She had integrity.

    Cons

    Completely disrespectful of nurses. I left when I was ordered to both see my 5 or 6 patients and also perform home health aid care to 12 other patients, living from Roseville to southern MN, in a single day. The HHA who left gave a 3 week notice--plenty of time to hire a replacement. Also, it is a for profit company who either bends or breaks the rules regarding HIPPA. Their sales team sits in on team meetings, where patients are discussed. And I was with the then-president introducing the hospice program to a potential client who was promised service that we did not provide. For instance, there was a paid volunteer coordinator but not a single volunteer.

    Advice to Management

    Try honesty, integrity, and respect your nurses.

    Pros

    Competitive Salary and benefits, and bonuses, although they are hard to get

    Cons

    This is a very greedy, heartless company. Extremely micromanages. Intentionally tells the administrators to create a sense of urgency in the staff. You are guilty until proven innocent there.

    Advice to Management

    Develop some heart and realize that you cannot keep good employees when you treat them like slaves
