    I worked at Maxim Healthcare Services

    Pros

    I had a great time working for this company. It help me get away from the nursing home ring to a more challenging roles in hospitals in the Los Angeles area and later expand to the San Fernando and antelope valley.

    Cons

    Lots and lots of driving to your hospital shift each day. One day you could be at a drug rehab in Malibu with a great ocean view. the next day you're working at a hospital down the street from staples center in downtown LA. The pay is very poor for the most part but at time it was a bit higher what most nursing homes pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great incentive program for recruiters who are on call and for Healthcare personel who takr assignments more then 50 miles from their home.

    Pros

    Good company to learn some skills. They stay up to date with current healthcare topics and try to keep employees up to date as well.

    Cons

    Healthcare Benefits, salary for certain positions below average in surrounding area compared to other healthcare companies with the same job title. Certain departments have no room for growth/advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fix healthcare benefits for employees. A lot of employees cannot afford deductible for their family on the salary they have. Research other possible healthcare benefit packages to give employees options they can afford.

    Pros

    Recruiters/schedulers are usually very supportive and friendly with the field nurses. Patients and families are great, as they are with most home health care patients. Once you have been hired and completed the training, the company makes it easy to work in different locations/states as well as taking time off or wanting to work "right now" , i.e. very flexible. In most cases, the nursing sups and local management are supportive of the nurses who perform as they should. The training has improved tremendously in the past few years. I have worked with Maxim for over 6 years.

    Cons

    Problem with maintaining office/management staff in some locations. Recruiters are aware of when a patient is on medicare or gov't. funding vs. being a private pay patient -- the private pays more per hour to the company, however, rarely does a recruiter pass this along to the nurses - unless the nurse is aware and pushes the issue. The wages through medicare are very low to begin with, so nurses make a substantially lower salary than if in a hospital/care facility/doctor office, etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Determine what is the problem in some office management situations. One office I have worked in has had a revolving door of nursing sups/manager/recruiters. One never knows who will be there the next time you call in.

    Pros

    Pay was above what other new grads got, mind you this was 5 years ago. I was trained for three days, effectively. Learned a lot by being by myself, so had no choice but to take deep breath and figure it out. Could work as many hours as you wanted, $$ WAS ALWAYS THERE IF YOU WANTED IT.

    Cons

    all paperwork had to be dropped off at office by Saturday, or you wouldn't get paid following week. Sometimes was way out of the way to go there. This was 5 years ago, so maybe by now they, hopefully, are on computer. No benefits, ones offered, way to expensive.

    Pros

    You will receive some of the best training in the industry. Sales and management style is aggressive, preps you for top positions elsewhere.

    Cons

    NO commitment to retention. Personnel are expendable, internal or external. You will work more than you are paid to. I was scheduled 8a-6p and was usually in by about 7:30 and gone by about 7p. Not to mention on call weeknights. Turnover is unreal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promotions shouldn't be dangled like carrots with no intention of follow-through. Prior work counts for nothing at the first sign of disappointment.

    Pros

    You will learn a ton about management and how to manage an office if you are fresh out of school. The company definitely invests a lot of time taking care of you to make sure you learn what you need to be promoted.

    Cons

    Long hours and on call makes a work/life balance difficult
