    I have been working at Almost Family full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I love my coworkers, definitely alot work to do.

    Cons

    Pay - which is why i am currently looking for a new job.

    Advice to Management

    Employees should be paid by years of experience, i have over 15 years experience in healthcare and being paid as a new employee with no experience. The company is constantly buying new homecare offices around the country. It is your employees that do that work, you should pay them appropriately.

    I have been working at Almost Family full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This company obviously cares about the patient first! I've sat in many meetings where senior leadership brings back the focus to the patient when resolving issues. For a nurse, this is refreshing as many businesses seem to have forgotten about the true reason for what we do.

    Cons

    Pay could always be better

    Pros

    Almost Family has a strong commitment to their employees and patients. They promote integrity and ethics at all times. Management is responsive and supportive.

    Cons

    Need to continue to work on improving their technology. Orientation could be better, provide more structure to the on boarding experience.

    Pros

    In three short months I will be celebrating my 10th anniversary working for Almost Family Inc. I have enjoyed working with wonderful coworkers. I have watched the company more than double in size over the years. The management is focused on expansion and progressing their technology. This year (2017) the company is planning to move from paper data collection to an electronic point of care system. Almost Family has also contributed $250K to the Red Cross Home Fire Campaign. I work for a company I believe in everyday. I believe the company's values and mission to make lives better through home care and to help enable people be able to stay in the homes longer.

    Cons

    My only con is the employee health insurance could be less expensive.

    Advice to Management

    The management here works to grow the company and make it prosperous. This is good for every employee. It means if you work hard you will always have work to do in a prosperous company with a stable future ahead of it. My advice to management would be to keep improving and keep innovating.

    Pros

    I have a flexible schedule and I am able to complete my job duties within scheduled time frame.

    Cons

    On call in for 7 days and nights when I am on call.

    Advice to Management

    I think one call should be broken into weekend and during the week to allow staff time for a day off or a couple days off.
