I worked at VITAS Healthcare full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good electronic medical record system
benefits good

Cons

Too big
No support to staff

Advice to Management

Go back to the thinking and support that you had when you were small. Much better place to work then. Allow people to make mistakes and turn it into a learning opportunity. Stop writing people up behind their back so if you can decide on a whim to get ride of them.

    I have been working at VITAS Healthcare full-time

    Pros

    Fulfilling, yet "a lot of work", work with paitents and families in a very intimate time of their life. I feel understood and supported by my in-the-trenches co-workers.

    Cons

    I find managers stressed and often with their hands tied by corporate policy. low salary, poor 401k and health benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Money does speak appreciation and value; words of support and ears of understanding as well as a willingness to work alongside when the load is overwhelming speak volumes also.

    I have been working at VITAS Healthcare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good vacation benefits and some very dedicated employees

    Cons

    disorganized management, no career path for non-medical personnel, lack of established processes, little documentation for M&Ps, no formal training program for non-medical staff. Raises have been frozen 2+ years but sales just received new Ipads, Iphones and new applications to sign patient consents.

    Advice to Management

    Get everyone on the same page. Share information will all areas of the business. Show your employees respect. Stop acting like a small company that wants to play in the big boy sandbox. Share the vision with your employees, get a united purpose and achieve the goal.
