    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.

    Pros

    Excellent company with high ethical standards for patient care and employment. Employees are valued and integrity is at the core of company values.

    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 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a genuine care for serving the elderly...day in and day out, employees strive to live out the company mission of "Making Lives Better Through Home Care." This is seen in almost every department.

    Cons

    Not necessarily a negative thing to all people, but people who do not embrace and thrive amidst change, will struggle to find a cultural fit.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to reinforce the company mission, vision, and values through story-telling.
