    Pros

    I received a ton of experience, a good education on everything related to home healthcare. The entry level pay was better than anywhere else I applied. The hours are very flexible, and the staff is nice and helpful with any problems you have. They always seemed to call to ask if I wanted to pick up and they always have plenty of pick up hours available which is cool if you want to pick up extra money here and there.

    Cons

    The initial hiring process is a marathon of signing and education, before you begin working. When I was a new nurse the training was welcomed but the paperwork is monotonous and just downright brutal... The pay level didn't change during my time there, but this may have been my fault for not asking to get a raise, but you would assume there would be some sort of pay increase the longer you are there automatically - but there wasn't. Sometimes the calls to pick up hours can be annoying, when you are having some personal time with your family and you are receiving calls deemed as urgent, and you break away just to find out they want you to pick up hours kinda sucks sometimes. The RN supervisors seem to nitpick a little on various minor things regarding documentation or things that aren't very pertinent to care. You have monthly evaluations and you are required to complete monthly CEUs on their website (free) and sometimes meetings are called that are just borefests with no real content, but these things go along with the job really... I experience these things alot as an LPN.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing a good job! But I would recommend, for someone like me, you may want to evaluate how to give employees incentive to work long term with your company, otherwise most will only look at their employment with Maxim as a stepping stone to a more fulfilling, permanent position with obtainable benefits and pay increases that are satisfying.

    Pros

    Everyone was always very friendly, very understanding, and helpful. My supervisor would always give me the option of choosing the patient I'd like to care for. I was always offered more hours, specifically the wellness fairs they'd send me to. Great place for entry-level nurses.

    Cons

    Payrate.
    Mandatory Meetings that were not paid for.
    They lost the school cases.

    Pros

    The work is easy. Hours are flexible. Paycheck is direct deposited weekly. Working with children is a pleasure and a joy.

    Cons

    They don't always have the hours that you want. You might have to travel 45 to 1 hr to get to clients home. If a client is gone for the week you don't get paid. You might have to take several different clients in different areas and different shifts just to get enough work.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe more recruiting for clients. Possibly less employees so there are more options for them. Careful not to get to many employees from one area.

    Pros

    Care about their employees and clients. Numerous opportunities among different lines of business. Pay and benefits good as well as a reasonable bonus structure

    Cons

    Busy Business! Somewhat sluggish hiring process for internals. Working on greater opportunities for external staff now. Nothing else.

    Advice to Management

    Just continue on recent path with great leaders and more recognition of external staff. Continue with all lines of business to afford a variety of opportunities for employees

    Pros

    Weekly pay is great, direct deposit is awesome, hours are great, and clients are awesome

    Cons

    If your direct deposit hasn't kicked in yet, there might be instances where your check is "held up" in another state and they won't tell you about it. Some of the co-workers are VERY unprofessional and do not adhere to the policy of calling off in advance. Staff does NOTHING about this. Lack of communication between staff and nurses.

    Advice to Management

    Enforce your policy and fix the communication
