    I worked at Gentiva full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Freedom of flex schedule

    Cons

    If the office staff didn't like you, they wouldn't give you enough visits. Or they would send you far away where you could only get 2-3 visits in.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing favorites.

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

    Pros

    I enjoy working in the Hickory branch. Flexibility in setting schedule, plenty of opportunities to grow, tons of resources available for patient care and education, great benefits, love my coworkers, everyone is helpful, best team I have worked with!

    Cons

    There is a lot to learn and it takes about 6 months to really feel confident. Good thing is there is always someone willing to help.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff, provide honest feedback, be flexible

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

    Pros

    PTO is generous.
    Pay is competitive.
    I love the job I do. Not necessarily the company I work for.

    Cons

    Insurance benefit options are subpar and most employees cannot afford deductibles required before insurance starts paying. Coinsurance is not insurance!! Bring back insurance with copay options!!
    Like most corporations, bottom line is the most important focus.

    Advice to Management

    Truly listen to your employees and stop thinking what you are doing is the best way, without finding out what the people who have to deal with it think. Many processes are repetitive or unnecessary.

    I worked at Gentiva full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible with taking PTO , they provided iPads so it was easier to work from home on weekends if you were behind on paperwork

    Cons

    Always being called in to work weekends or pull on call duties after working 40+ hours. They expected your job to come first then family . After they got bought out from Kindred, things really started to get micromanaged.

    Advice to Management

    Consider your employees and work with them. They will lasso the moon for you if you do
