    Pros

    Flexible hours, dedicated employees who work hard despite a lack of respect and input from managers.

    Cons

    Horrible management. Managers would insult patients and employees behind their backs; President of company prefers to hide in her office rather than address employee favoritism and morale issues; marginal HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees and address real problems in employee favoritism, teach your managers how to manage employees.

    Pros

    free ice cream on occasion

    Cons

    micromanagement, long, drawn out, over done and ridiculous orientation. Depends on who your manager is. Terrible computer system. Timed charting. No independance. Home health is not supposed to be micromanaged, they are overly insisting the clinitions attend stupid inservices over and over. Pretty much a 12-14 hour day.

    Advice to Management

    Assist with lab values, notifying MD’s, notifying patients, finding ways to help the clinition instead of spending the whole day chatting and auditing charts staring at the computer into space. Jump in and assist with daily needs, allow some freedom of the RN taking care of the patients, don’t sit and micromanage the whole day. Give some room to people, don’t be so stuffy.

  8. Lacks Leadership
