    Pros

    Case Manager's have a lot of autonomy. The Registered Nurses are a close knit group and are the backbone of the organization.

    Cons

    Lowest pay in area, pay raises when corp gets around to it, expected to work off the clock (work 60 hr wk paid for 40), Adminstrator abusive and states all employees are expendable, Hire good per diem staff, then have no hours to give them, Show favortism among staff. Laying off staff when we are management heavy. In all the years I have worked at HA I hardly ever hear that I am doing a good job, CSD appears like she is depressed all the time, she never smiles and she disciplines employees in front of others!

    Advice to Management

    Do not hire so many free lance staff, that you are not able to give hours to the long term free lance staffers! Stop showing favoritism of employees, Smile once in awhile. Tell your staff they are doing a good job. Discipline employees in private.

    Pros

    A lot of good people work for Hospice Advantage, unfortunately the upper management only cares about census growth and not their employee's.

    Cons

    The company philosophy is trade up, if the Executive Director cannot grow their office census they will be traded out in 6 months or less.
    The new management is from Southern Care, just read about their past experiences with the OIG.
    This website is a joke, Hospice Advantage tells their employee's to go on this website to write positive things to offset the negative truths that have been written by past employee's.

    Advice to Management

    Why give someone advise, when they don't care what you are saying?

    Pros

    The companies foundation is right on-its about the patient and their journey and encompassing everyone around them. The pay is compatible. The clinical staff can be the best around! They have a training program when used that has show to be very successful in helping you provide the best possible care. There is leadership that cares and makes every effort to meet the need, even when corporate has not been supportive.

    Cons

    There have been some bad apples in the group from an administrator, clinical director to clinical staff and it has brought the company reputation down. Sad to say, good people have been forced out from all levels because corporate step in too late. The company is set on building a better team and uniting to provide quality compassionate care.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the office. Hire up. Keep training. Support your leadership team and offices when they ask for help.

    Pros

    Flexible with schedule and competitive pay. There are not many pros to this job. Great job if you want to work 60 to 70 hours a week a d get paid for 40.

    Cons

    Will work you to death and not care. Corp will not have your back. Way to much micro managing. You continue do your job without making sure with 5 other people it's ok to do your job.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Nurses HHA and FSS team members. They know what it takes to do this job and burning them out is hurting you more than helping. Give the CSD some help. How do you expect to keep anyone if the office secretary has more power then the actual bosses.
