    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Flexibility after you get experience to manage case load, pay is competitive, small areas to case manage,

    Cons

    Training is non-existent, corporate focused, family/work life is hard to maintain balance, 401k matching program is lower than industry standard

    Advice to Management

    Better training with hands on preceptors vs all online computer based training will decrease turnover rate allowing for continuity of care!! Nurses and patients are tired of a revolving door of new and employees.

    I have been working at Amedisys

    Pros

    Hospice is a calling and I am fortunate to be able to have a career as well as answer my true calling. The local care center has a gifted team. The patients and teammates are the best part of the job.

    Cons

    Balancing home and work life. Hospice is not like home health- visits should take more time since these people are dealing with end of life issues. It is not and should not be task driven. These individualized patient needs and time allowance for this should be considered.

    Advice to Management

    Employees have to be taken care of and valued in order for quality care to be upheld. Prepare for future growth.

    I worked at Amedisys full-time

    Pros

    The only pro is some of the patients

    Cons

    Office staff are constantly gossiping about employees. You are on-call constantly! Seems like you never have a day off. Schedule changes and patients are added frequently. Not enough hours in the day to complete required workload. You will be charting all evening after work!

    Pros

    Absolutely nothing positive to say about this company!!

    Cons

    Do not care about the patients or the staff. All about profit. They bought out Compassionate Care Hospice and turned the whole program in to a nightmare. Don't waste your time even considering working for this company!!!

    I worked at Amedisys full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Pay is reasonable. It started out pretty good there, got worse after a year.

    Cons

    Negative zero work/life balance. Too many visits scheduled in a day with 100+ miles. There is rarely time for lunch or a bathroom break. After all that, there's still 4 hours of charting and other paperwork that needs done. After hours nurses are seen as another body for routine visits that really should be done during the day. A typical work day ends up being 12to14 hours once all the paperwork is done, no overtime... because of salary status. The office staff does NOT care about what's going on in the field, communication from the office is seriously lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop adding meetings to days that are already overscheduled. Don't assign support staff to those who don't really need it. Actually LISTEN to your staff instead of just wondering what you should order for lunch.
