I have been working at Almost Family full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are some really great clients. There is really nothing else good to say about working for this company it has the potential to be something great but that is not what it is concerned about.

Cons

Poor pay, unclear expectations, little to no training, abusive managment, no room for growth, obscure bonuses that are impossible to obtain, they strive to provide the least amount of care while pushing for the maximum profit. No raises have been given in several years to any field staff or lower managment. All staff hired PRN but expected to work full time. No mileage paid to HHA's. Nurses paid very low mileage but expected to travel great distances. PRN benifits availible at a cost much higher than is actually made you would have to pay them every week.

Advice to Management

start at the bottom and work your way up. Without a competive rate of pay it is impossible to find quality field staff without quality field staff you cannot provide quality care. The business would really explode if clients were satisfied with their care and would stay with the company for services. More hospitals and physicians would give the company referrals if they could trust that their patients would recieve the care that they deserve.

    The employees are friendly for the most part.

    **No raises in 3 years for most employees, despite the fact that the company has made profits.
    **Don't keep promises to employees.
    **Upper management (VPs) show very little concern for employees.

    **stop micromanaging
    **get some training for your managers so they can at least attempt to manage well.
    **Regular raises would go a long way toward helping morale and retention rates.
