    Pros

    The job was extremely rewarding. Patient care was always number one. Some of the most compassionate and brightest people I have ever worked with at the office level.

    Cons

    Long, grueling hours. Challenging on call expectations. Much responsibility and hard work and always having to be asked for even more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Office management was very involved and supportive. Corporate management was largely absent. It would be beneficial for them to be present and engaged when they do visit instead of on the phone or computer the whole time.

    Pros

    They truly do care about there patients.

    Cons

    Benefits are way to expensive for such a large company. They is no room for advancement with the company unless you are a nurse. It seems that the nurses get all the glory as if no one else works here and that make morale very low. When things reported to management that are of a ethical nature nothing is ever done they pretend it never happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the little people that are working there tails off and making the company what it is today. Show them more appreciation.

    I enjoyed my position as a Hospice Worker but company benefits and Local and Corporate Management were weak.

    Pros

    "Great Interdisciplinary Team support towards the care and concerns of the patients and their families."

    Cons

    Corporate Management had several complaints dealing with serious office issues.with No real
    satisfactory results or resolve. "Swept under Rug.."
    Benefit Packages were too high.
    Office Directors were biased towards Nursing Staff which often diminished office morale.
    Salaried positions, excluding Nursing,, were overly worked (ON CALL) with NO MONETARY COMPENSATION except mileage reimbursement. which was NEVER the government standard
    rate per mile.
    Little to NO room for career advancement,, again, except for Nursing Staff.
    Little to NO MINORITIES in management positions --SEEN OR UNSEEN--including CORPORATE OFFICES--OVER 5000 EMPLOYEES IN 14+ STATES. WOW !!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    SouthernCare is a '"FOR PROFIT" COMPANY.
    "Trickle down" the enormous profits and bonuses given to Management and Corporate "Big Wigs." INVEST IN YOUR PEOPLE! THEY ARE THE ONES THAT ARE BUILDING YOUR COMPANY!!!
    PROPERLY Follow through with complaints, AND Wise suggestions!
    Formulate CAREER ADVANCEMENTS FOR "ALL" Disciplines.
    "JUST SAY NO" TO DISCRIMINATION!

    Poor management and overworking the RN's with no compensation

    Former Employee - RN All Positions
    Former Employee - RN All Positions

    Pros

    The patients and their families

    Cons

    They hire RN's as salaried and then after working 40 hours or more, usually at least 50 a week they expect 150 hours of call a month with no call pay for CTC or backup. I received $60 a month in call pay for the 150 hours of call a month. If you complain they tell you that you do not have a hospice heart and need to quit. They do not care about their employees only increasing their patient numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your Nurses better and they may stay with the company.

    BEWARE- very high turnover rate- for a reason

    Former Employee - RN All Positions  in  Lafayette, LA
    Former Employee - RN All Positions in Lafayette, LA

    Pros

    Being able to care for the patients

    Cons

    Ok where do I begin? First of all beware all of you job seekers! Management will NOT disclose working conditions and the job description you will sign will CHANGE. And I'm not talking changes like fill out this new form or a change in a policy here and there. I'm talking about MAJOR changes and expectations about being on call, horrendous working hours and patient loads. All of the reasons you would take a job to begin with will not remain the same a month out from hire with this company. Get ready for management who do not truly care for their employees. You are just a number and the entire focus of this company is on getting a higher patient census regardless whether or not they have the staff to Care for them! Bottom line is management will NOT help or get in the field when short staffed. Staff is responsible and do not get compensated for extra time worked. The on call pay is the worst I have ever heard of from any company. This company services a 50 mile radius but again beware! You will be on the road from one end to the next and back again!! Upper management at the corporate level comes in to find out the scoop from employees and issues you have with management in "confidence" then betray you and tell management everything you may have said. Then corporate leaves and the office is left in shambles and friction among coworkers. This is probably the most awful working environment ever. Serious issues here- everyday there is a new posting for clinical director in other offices- something is going on here- I do not see this company doing well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your high horses and remember what it's like to be a person.

    Pros

    Work/life balance and management. The company cares about it's patients and that was pleasant to find. I would like to work there again in the future.

    Cons

    Management moved some departments to Dallas recently and displaced several people. But this is part of growth and offered to move several employees to continue their jobs. This is not really a con, but the company is moving to Texas.

    Overall has been a very good experience

    Current Employee - CRS  in  Mansfield, OH

    Pros

    There is a great deal of compassion for the clients that Southerncare serves. I have served the company soon to be going into my 7th year.

    Cons

    Serving in my first position with the company there was not someone who I would consider qualified to provide experienced direction. Although there was support, in many cases it lacked. I understand since I have left that position I understand there has been pier mentoring program developed.

    In my current position there are a lot of hours one is expected to work without any comp time or addtional pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the possibility of restructuring Community Relations making its employees Non-Expempt Status

    Pros

    Very ethical setting, ture patient and family advocates, longevity of clinical staff (some for over 12 years), clinical team believes in doing what is right by the patient; corporate works with you and your director to help meet professional goals.

    Cons

    Being in Marketing you are judged on your goal for the month, but you are not fired for not meeting those goals.
