    Pros

    Corporate leadership team is very down to earth and friendly. Keep busy, play as a part of the team, and be accountable and you will go far.

    Cons

    Small stuff that was annoying - LOTS of busy work. Accountability software takes a giant chunk of time, which is expected to be done on your own time. Expense reports were not very streamlined.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on growing and teaching your sales team, not on repercussions of not making your numbers.

    Pros

    The best reason to work for Odyssey is the service that they provide for people in the end states of their life.

    Cons

    They are a corporation and forever making staff and policy changes. There does not seem to be any consistency.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees

    Pros

    They have good insurance coverage

    Cons

    Management is unreliable. A Hostile work environment. Disrepectful and paranoia are key to their management style. Upper management ignores request for help and backs even bad management. You have no where to turn for help. A compliance hotline only made things worse.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If employees who have been with your company a long time tell you that there's a problem with management, you should listen.

    I worked at Odyssey Hospice

    Pros

    They are the most professional medical service that I have ever known

    Cons

    Sometimes there are a lot of patients on Crisis care and sometimes you may not have a patient for a week or two at a time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I loved working with Sylvia Marcantel. She is one of the most devoted woman I have ever metin the health care industry.
