    Pros

    Nationwide company. Many avenues of employment, from communities or home health.

    Cons

    New into the Home Health world. Job is consistently changing. They are trying to figure out how to sell and how they want their employees to do it. Its the "fly by the seat of your pants" approach.

    Advice to Management

    Believe in your sales team. When you rollout a new approach, give it time to work before changing it again. Also be patient, relationships are built overnight.

    "RN Case Manager for Brookdale Home Health"

    I have been working at Emeritus Senior Living full-time

    Pros

    NONE! Actually being able to resign!!

    Cons

    The current DCS newly hired will micro manage you right out of a job! She is a control freak! Watch your paycheck...wrong every 2 weeks. Promised certain amount of $ for points but not delivered and corporate is very one sided always agreeing with manager. Turn over is ridiculous and nobody cares about the actual reason we are in this practice which should be the patient!!!

    Advice to Management

    Fire current DCS and listen to the hard working nurses out in the field that actually work. Support your nurses, listen to them, and pay them what they deserve and worked so hard to get!
