    Pros

    nurses and CHHAs,social workers,chaplains are great team and honor to work with

    Cons

    management unprofessional, play favorites. If you don't agree you are written up. Pay stinks for the work you do. Make it about the patient and family not the $$.

    Advice to Management

    Family and friends should not be able to work along side you in the same office, very unprofessional. Dress like your management.Care about the staff and patients, not your bonus.

    I have been working at VITAS Healthcare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Vitas offers 240 hours of PTO, which starts accruing after your 3 month probation period. Patients are well cared for. The Sacramento location seems to make a point of hiring a diverse staff, including management staff, with many ethnicitys represented and they are gay friendly.

    Cons

    Heavy caseload. I was hired to work Mon-Fri, and after 4 years, told that I needed to work 2 out of 3 weekends. We used to be able to start our visits from home, but now have to start from the office, which adds a 45 minute commute to my day, when I already drive hundreds of miles a week, seeing 6 patients per day.
