    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 8 years)

    Pros

    Chances for advancement. Not stuck in an office all day. Always enough work to go around. Clinicians are really there for the patients.

    Cons

    In my case, those above didn't know how to tell the truth, & was barely in the office, yet upper management was blind to the problems this presented. Frustrating that across the board raises were given ...when obviously some didn't even do their own work on time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention when you're being told there's a problem. Quit using everyone then throwing them to the curb when they no longer go along with your bullying.

    Horrible computer system, creates unnecessary work, causing you to have to double document, branch director never gets back to you on vital info. A lot of nursing turn over. Processes never seem to get followed through with.

    Advice to Management

    Processes need reviewed and carried out, orientation needs major improvement

    Pros

    Taking care of patients is the best part of HH. Overall, the branch staff is awesome, despite poor management from top.

    Cons

    Poor communication between director and clinicians unless it's too complain or intimidate.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of intimidating staff in attempts to make them stay, find out, and fix, why they're unhappy.

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

    Pros

    The team and office I work for is great. The office manager took a chance on hiring me because I had no health care experience at all. They've worked with me and taught me so much. This location has a great team dynamic and we all get along great. You couldn't ask for a better team to work with.

    Cons

    My biggest complaint is probably the health insurance. It is very expensive for a family of four and the company does not help with the cost. They do have a wellness program you can follow every year that lowers the cost. I still take a high deductible just to keep the cost down which means I still can't really see my doctor like I need to.

    Advice to Management

    Offer some different plans for health insurance.
