Disapproves of CEO

I worked at American Hospice full-time (More than a year)

Pros

You will meet a lot of nice people that do grunt work like you do
25 cent drinks in the break room
Fair to good benefits, but they don't outweigh what you will sacrifice to remain employed with their company

Cons

Senior management is only concerned about money and has no compassion for patients/families or their employees. They will screw you over in a heartbeat. Upper management is incompetent in their leadership and clinical skills leaving those in the field nursing supervisors in the office with no support and condemning them when things go awry.
They also say there is no money for annual raises but fly their corporate people around the country frequently putting them up in full service hotels, eating at five star restaurants, and getting their own rental cars. All of this profit coming from people that are dying.

Advice to Management

Get (and keep!) good managers and let go of the bad ones. Unfortunately, you run off the good people and promote the lousy ones.

    Current Employee - On-Call Nurse in Atlanta, GA
    Doesn't Recommend

    Pros

    Clinical competence of on-call nurses

    Cons

    Total clinical incompetence of clinical mgmt - no recent clinical experience; poor clinical judgment
    Untrustworthiness of administration and management
    Harassment and micromanaging of professional staff
    Too much "passing the buck" - managers do not communicate process/progress in resolving patient issues
    Pass over employee concerns - no support
    Administrators "on-call" pass the buck and leave nurse unsupported

    Advice to Management

    Replace current clinical mgmt with C-O-M-P-E-T-E-N-T, more recently clinically-active RN
    Survey your professional staff about above concerns - will HAVE to be anonymous
