    Pros

    Bayada Nurses is a home health care organization that looks to hire those with shared values. That is what makes Bayada Nurses unique. Whether you are a nurse or an office employee, they are looking for the best and brightest with compassion, excellence, and reliability. The CEO, Mark Baiada, is a very smart,down to Earth guy who makes a point of meeting every new hire during the new hire training. He is a very visible CEO within the organization and it's not unusual to see him chatting with all levels of workers. Working for a company that truly believes in living out their mission means that decision making is based on "doing the right thing," Expectations are high so don't expect to rest on your laurels and get by in this organization. They take their work and the reputation of the company very seriously.The work environment can be intense at times because it is a customer service centered industry, but it is a company where you can feel good about what you are doing for others, no matter what capacity you work in at Bayada. It is also a company that rewards you for good work and shows its appreciation to its employees. Understanding that there is no perfect job or career, as we are all human and issues will come up, I would rate Bayada Nurses as a great place to work. It is a great team environment with a lot of giving people who care about one another. If you enjoy a family friendly work place, Bayada is the place for you.

    Cons

    As previously mentioned, working in healthcare takes a special commitment. Health care doesn't take a day off. As such the offices have coverage 365 days a year. Vacations need to be staggered. You need to be flexible in home health care, especially if you are working in a service office.

    Advice to Management

    While nurses are offered opportunities to attain CEUs, it would be great if there were self-directed learning opportunities for office employees. Allowing office workers to attend outside seminars and professional development outside of what it takes to just do the job would be enriching for these workers, as well.

    I have been working at BAYADA Home Health Care full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Being able to provide care to another human being in need.
    The Bayada Way - the company (its people) has a strong set of core values. These core values are not only stated, but experienced in the field and in the office.
    Amazing people - could not work with nicer people.
    Awesome field staff - RNs, LPNs, Hab techs, and HHAs.
    Entry level start provided me with a solid foundation to grow 4 more levels in 18 years.
    Excellent training- leadership and job-specific- developed and led by a dedicated support office
    First-class, accelerated leadership development program - ALDP.
    Leaders in the home care industry.
    Debt-free, privately held company since 1975.
    Practice specialties such as pediatric, adult skilled and personal care, home health and hospice, and habilitation, each provide opportunities to provide care in your area of expertise and passion.
    Entrepreneurial spirit encourages those with the abilities to expand business and create more and more opportunities for others, and help more and more clients.
    Feedback is encouraged, therefore, I have grown more because of it and I've witnessed a ton of promotions (very few in leadership roles are hired from the outside)
    The high expectations have pushed me to be a better person, personally and professionally.
    Outstanding support offices who help with a lot of the administrative type work, allowing the service offices to focus on connecting with the clients and employees to deliver the care the client needs and wants.
    The offices in each region work closely together to support and help one another daily.
    We work hard, but we play hard too! Just returned from an inspirational and amazing award's weekend where heroes are recognized. It's emotional to watch the work we do daily and its impact.
    Having fun in the office is encouraged. An open "pit" leads to excellent communication among team members, leading to excellent coordination of care.
    Excellent benefits package for a single individual.

    Cons

    Extremely tough work, not for everyone. Not everyone chooses to stay at Bayada, and it's sad when we lose one of our team members because we get so close to each other.
    Can feel under-appreciated at times.
    Turn-over rates due to the demanding nature of our work.
    Family benefits package is expensive.
    Clients need care 24/7, so we are often needed after hours and on weekends to make sure they are taken care of. That can sometimes lead to an imbalance in work and family time and can lead to burn-out. Not everyone, including myself, has the ability to keep that in check.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for the opportunity to grow with such a wonderful company. Keep supporting your people and listening to their needs. There is no "easy" job at Bayada. Make sure everyone feels valued, so we can continue to help others.

    I have been working at BAYADA Home Health Care full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I am just completing the 6-month ALDP program with BAYADA. My experience here has been nothing short of excellent. The opportunities that I have received in the past 5 months have exceeded all of my expectations. While learning the job of a Client Services Manager, we have traveled numerous times to the learning centers in both NJ and NC for various trainings. We have also been able to interact with the top management on multiple occassions at various events. There aren't many companies around in which the President and CEO has conference calls, meetings and dinners with a small group of new employees many times and allows them to ask him anything they want. Additionally, he is as kind and warm as one can be. He inspires you to want to work and work hard for the company and our clients.

    The support I have received from my peers and the management team throughout this program is unmatched. I truly feel like everyone wants me to succeed and go as far as I can in BAYADA. I feel like I have grown so much personally and professionally in the past 5 months. I'm grateful for this program and cannot wait to see what the future holds at BAYADA.

    Cons

    The job is not easy. It is high stress and there can be some long days. But with that, you are making a difference in so many people's lives makes it worth it for me.

    There are high expectations in the ALDP program. There are projects and presentations that you have to do and not everyone is up for the challange.

    Pros

    Lengthy and comprehensive training period with dedicated, knowledgeable and caring mentors. Amazing company that is leaving a fantastic legacy.

    Team concept where all work towards common goal of quality care for all clients.

    Most amazing group of professionals that I have ever had the chance to work with.

    A rare gem of a company that truly lives its value of 'our employees are our greatest asset.' Work is hard at times, however, Mark and the company want to reward those that work hard and excel!!

    Cons

    I didn't come to work for this organization right after my under grad program.

    Advice to Management

    Let's continue together working on our goals of serving millions with the most qaulity care available. So glad to be part of the BAYADA family!

    Pros

    They have a lot more benefits for CNA's than other home health agencies. You can really tell they know how valuable their work is. They will accommodate your work schedule without making you feel guilty and give you more hours when you need them. This is a great introduction to the world of home care for a new CNA.

    Cons

    There were no cons here.
