    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Pathways Home Health full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I'm the kind of person who thrives knowing that my actions have meaning. That's why I joined Pathways. I need to know that my work life is spent doing something that I can look back upon with a positive sense of accomplishment. Pathways gives me that. They have competitive salaries for the marketplace (and for being a non-profit). Recent hires are bringing with them a sense of professionalism and background that is truly improving the overall functioning, with better policies, communications, and more staff training. I'm feel very hopeful of my career growth potential and professional opportunities here.

    Cons

    As a small non-profit operating in the SF Bay Area, staff members are each doing the work of three people. (Definitely never a dull moment!) However, there is the overall feeling that the organization is in "reaction mode" (fighting fires) instead of "proactive mode" (effective planning), which can lead to frustration. A lot of decisions made are questioned and changed or reversed later--either by the originators or someone in senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Trust that your staff are professionals and have a vested interest in the success of your organization. Review policies and procedures that may be out-dated and revise as needed. Conduct more thoughtful planning, reviews, and follow-up of all projects to ensure that successes and mistakes are tracked and effectively communicated. Continue training opportunities for managers and staff to ensure they can compete in the ever-changing landscape of home health, hospice, and private duty care.

    Senior Director of Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sunnyvale, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Pathways Home Health (Sunnyvale, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It seemed like a long time--more than two months--but I hear that is getting more common in the current job market. First interview was with my future boss and another from my department. Second interview was a panel with future co-workers. Third interview was over the phone with a consultant. Final interview was again with my future boss and another senior manager.
