    Pros

    Autonomy, career growth and development opportunities, strong team with sales and clinical alignment.

    Cons

    It's healthcare, and not a com, but on occasion, weekend and holiday work is necessary. You are well compensated financially and with time off.

    I worked at Almost Family full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the patients you come across are great. Coworkers are kind, you aren't stuck in an office all day

    Cons

    Poor management, ridiculously high turnover, very high quota, company is constantly cutting the pay rate for visits. No regard for patient centered care. Company is still documenting on paper which means visit sheets and medication profiles are always lost or not filed. Very unsafe work environment

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your nurses

    I have been working at Almost Family full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some good people work there. The patients are great, the therapists are great.

    Cons

    Management is abusive and disrespectful....just found out the office manager and supervisors are writing falsely positive reviews. The cliniciand, patient and their families used to be important. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Get new management, supervisors especially. The current 2 need to go.

    Pros

    Honest, fair and caring home office staff that are all very helpful when needed. The company truly does put the patient first.

    Cons

    Health coverage is a very high cost for the employee, and many cannot afford it.

    Continue doing what you are doing supporting our offices; we truly do work for the best home care company there is!

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

    Pros

    I've been with Almost Family for 3 years and love working for a company that offers stability. This company is the only company I've ever worked for that really values their employees. Patient care is really good.

    Cons

    A lot of hours. But we are short staffed and they are interviewing so it will get better.
