    Pros

    Satisfying career caring for people who really need help, with very reasonable support from the company for supplies and medicines. No one was ever deprived of anything needed for symptom control, and even most "nice to have for comfort" supplies and assignments were approved.

    Cons

    Knee-jerk reactions to company stresses such as memos from headquarters or a decline in census. Power for any change was in the hands of the people who were in the program when it started, regardless of their current position or authority.

    Advice to Management

    Follow the chain of command. Consider problems and requests from a "program value" perspective instead of the two most common: "we have never done that before" and "we insiders don't like the idea because it (isn't ours, may inconvenience some of us, may make one of us look less-competent, . . .)."

    Pros

    The hospice industry will have tremendous growth in the near future.
    Executive Management at VITAS are all very well educated in hospice and business.

    Cons

    Some of the non-core competencies of VITAS are poorly managed. The IT function is slow to innovate, and correct issues. The HR policies for staff are not enforced consistently. The Benefits are mediocre.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with your staff, and do not play passive agressive political games.
    Be honest and forthright so that everyone involved knows the expectations and how they are or are not being met.
