    I have been working at Addus Healthcare part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company has been around a long time will give you clients if you ask for them if you can afford to work full time

    Cons

    Unorganized meetings nasty attitudes from supervisors who hold the meeting meetings could be held online but not done some things that I important I refused to be discussed and you are told this right upfront nor is the time or place to discuss whatever is on your mind only what's on the company's mind

    Advice to Management

    There should be vacation for someone who's worked over 14 years at your company it shouldn't matter how many hours they have at one time your employee could have worked full-time and had to drop down to part-time but they work for you for 14 years so that should qualify them for vacation time raises should be given on time with your review once in awhile you should talk to your employees face to face for the interview them see if they're due for a raise.

    I have been working at Addus Healthcare (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Love working with my people and they have no complaints about me.

    Cons

    Getting the supervisors to return a call to myself or a client is nearly non-existent. Getting staff to help with the quality of care for a client is like pulling teeth. Always sent to voicemail and 99% of the time they do not return the call. Personally, I have repeatedly told them i am open for hours...The website says they are hiring for immediate employment, yet I can't get another 4 or 5 hours a day. No respect for a worker who always does their job with minimal complaints or call ins.

    Advice to Management

    This office needs more help. Supervisor is always out doing intakes. I was in office one particular day, the supervisor was in according to the in/out magnet board as well as visably sitting at her desk. A worker who called was told supervisor was out of the office for the day.

    Pros

    Fun people to work for. Better pay than other agencies in town. My clients are so sweet and amazing. They have a union.

    Cons

    Maybe less paperwork and less driving. I worked for a different company that had click in and out with a phone. Ad you could write your reports in it too, so you didn't have to fill out as much paper.

    Pros

    I have worked for Addus, springfield office, for 1 1/2 years. The last 6 months have been very trying with physical issues and driving set backs. The girls in my office have assisted me in every possible way and always been there to support and understand while keeping the clients needs always 1st and for most and show me the utmost respect and concern while doing so. These women care with their hearts for the entire team.

    Cons

    You have to have an open mind with the director. She is harsh at times but this is not a con or to be taken personnel. She is mother like but very stern for all the right reasons

    Advice to Management

    Push for more in office staffing. I know personally that these ladies work non-stop in making this company a success and always using heart 1st for clients needs and just the same for their employees
