    Pros

    Good people to work with got really close to management, they were nice people to talk to. They seem to care and worked hard at the office

    Not fair compensation , odd hours. They were a lot of times when I would not work because there was no clients available and it was very unpredictable

    Advice to Management

    You need to organize your Systmes better in order to be more organized with the clients with the aids and for intakes. I felt bad at times for my boss

    Regional office out of area so at times regional directors not aware of challenges faced in this market place. Acquired my former company.

    Pros

    The full and part time staff are very nice people and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Corporate is not very responsive to staffing needs. Also, we still do mostly paper charting, but should go to computer charting within the next year.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough people to manage the caseload effectively.

    I worked at Almost Family (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pros to working for almost family/patient care was working autonomously.I find hand written paperwork easier as well.

    Cons

    No one to back you up, lots of finger pointing, revolving door of nurses.long work days

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff, give credit when credit was earned. Don't be so quick to fire the many dedicated nurses to replace with inexperienced nurses. Behavioral health is a passion of mine, and the patients need advocates.Not buses that go in pop them some pills and walk out.

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

    Pros

    Almost Family cares for the homebound seniors and enables them to live in their homes for as long as they wish. The mission is special. The field staff really care about the patients. The company values integrity and always strives to do the right thing for the patients.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the culture is terrible at many levels. Senior management is dysfunctional, meetings often involve bouts of yelling, there is lack of professional respect and trust, and that behavior tends to roll down hill to operational leaders and down to the branches. Although they have hired a culture change agent, senior mangement shows no sign of adopting new behaviors or taking it seriously at all. EQ i(emotional quotient) is seriously lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Please put your egos aside and begin to care and listen to those in the trenches. People do matter and putting people over profits will actually improve the profitability of the company because results will improve. If everybody is on edge then performance suffers.

    Pros

    Enjoy taking care of patients and making a difference in their lives. Flexible schedules allow for life outside work when needed.

    Cons

    Micromanaging too much. Upper management out of the loop and not realistic with expectations. Pressures to not spend too much money at the branch level have significantly increased while they continue to add positions at the corporate level.

    Advice to Management

    Try a day in the life of a clinician and see how hard they work!!
