    Pros

    VITAS 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.

    Cons

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

    I worked at Vitas Innovative Hospice Care as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Worked 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

    Cons

    Not a very diverse set of employees. Seemed as if just about everyone was a middle aged white woman.

    Pros

    VITAS 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!

    Cons

    As 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 ManagementAdvice

    Celebrate 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.
