    "Frustrated."

    I have been working at Amedisys full-time

    Pros

    Most of the patients are precious.

    Cons

    Want you to work endless hours and not get paid for it. Constantly add more charting/work to be done, papers to be filled out. Redundancy. No work/family balance for field staff. Don't want to pay fairly for mileage. It's all about numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Put some focus on field staff and their struggles, rather than your numbers. Quit trying to get out of paying what field staff are worth.

    upper management is very knowledgeable

    Cons

    they expect you to work extra when it benifits them, but when it benifits you, forget it, they do not care about their employees, are always messing up payroll,

    Advice to Management

    look at what your employee needs, stop them from going elsewhere by giving them the incentive to work extra to make extra pay.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    I have worked for Amedisys for over eight years now in multiple roles. Previous to this, I have worked at other home care companies (larger and smaller). Amedisys has continued to prioritize quality of care while navigating an ever-changing health care environment. The pros to this company are a focus on quality and an understanding that, due to the shear size of the company, no improper billing or documentation practices can be tolerated.

    Cons

    Amedisys is working hard to innovate in this industry where increasing pressure from payers and regulatory bodies. This means that we must change the way we practice, the way we continue to ensure quality care delivery. Not all of these changes are fun or welcomed by staff.

    Advice to Management

    The expectation of leadership at Amedisys is extremely high and demanding as well as gratifying to a point of being a leadership team that would make one desire to succeed.

    Pros

    They are very appreciative of the job we do.

    Cons

    They don't distribute pay raises often enough

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more options for profit sharing.
