    I have been working at Almost Family full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy working with the field staff and office staff. I enjoyed taking care of our patients and and well supported by the staff.

    Cons

    Scheduling can sometimes be difficult. I am looking forward to electronic medical records. I would like to see a little more of an ability to earn seniority.

    Pros

    Fast-growing company with job security. The management and staff are very patient-focused and dedicated to providing excellent care to our seniors. But mostly, the great working environment is a huge plus. Management and employees are warm, helpful and friendly, always eager to assist our patients and support fellow coworkers. There are even fun corporate events planned throughout the year, in which some even include bringing the family! If you like helping others and enjoy a challenging job offering opportunities for self-growth, then you may want to consider coming aboard. When you're here, you're family!

    Cons

    Technology. However, improvements are continually being made in this area!

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

    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.

    Pros

    Almost Family has best work environment. Upper management listens to recommendations. Company now will be on point of care electronic system. Improving benefits and PTO structure. Constant reinforcement for clinical excellence and educational opportunities.

    Cons

    None to report at this time. Possibly improvement with communication for all levels of management. More timely responses from corporate service departments. Otherwise very pleasant experience.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to embrace employee recognition and incentivize when appropriate

    Positive company culture - always doing things to make employees feel rewarded - company outings at Churchill Downs, Christmas Lunch with entertainment, free suite tickets to various events.

    Corporate structure can sometimes make it more difficult to get actions accomplished due to additional paperwork or "hoops to jump through."

    I have been working at Almost Family as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, pleasant staff, good pay. I have been a therapist for over 20 years. We take good care of our patients and I can't tell you how many courtesy visits I have done and gotten paid for while the company did not....because a patient needed something.

    Cons

    Medicare is the challenge for me, not almost family. The requirements become more strict so the paperwork is more. I am prn so I do hear the benefits are expensive...but my husband's insurance almost doubled again this year as well and that doesn't have to do with his employer...that's new healthcare. It is a large company and decisions are made by those higher up...not always easy.
