    Great team atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Miami, FL

    ProsVITAS has been around for 30+ years and it shows in the way they train their employees, offer vast resources on how to perform your job better and how to problem-solve. I work in their corporate office in Miami and they have Town Hall meetings with the President that keeps you informed on the company's growth and achievements. Also, they have a nice recognition in place for outstanding employees and even recognize you for the length of time you've been employed by the company.

    ConsI can't think of anything negative, everyone that works at VITAS is very nice.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Awesome experience at a place I know I'll miss.

    Accounting Intern (Former Employee)
    Cincinnati, OH

    ProsWorked with some of the nicest people that I think I'll ever meet. They seemed to love every second of their job. Outstanding work culture

    ConsNot a very diverse set of employees. Seemed as if just about everyone was a middle aged white woman.

    VITAS Innovative Hospice ... a Great Service to its Patients and Treats Employees like Family

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    La Salle, IL

    ProsVITAS Innovative Hospice Care is a corporation which started very modestly in Florida and has expanded across America. Sometimes there are some growing pains and stress with growth, but overall it works. I have worked for other hospices, and this one gets it right! Patients and their families do come first!

    ConsAs with any employment, it's the team you work with that determines how much you enjoy or do not enjoy your time at work. Thankfully at VITAS Hospice in LaSalle, our team cares about each other!

    Advice to Senior ManagementCelebrate and reward the great team you have already, more! Team building / bonding means less cost in money and time to hire and train new individuals. Give more bonuses, more luncheons at team, etc.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
