    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.

    I worked at Gentiva full-time

    Pros

    None, uncaring about its employees or their families

    Cons

    Micro management at its worse. Don't bother to file a complaint with upper management, they are all about covering for each other. To the managers, it getting the numbers to get their bonuses. Why send a nurse to a pts home 70 miles away, when there was a gentiva office less than 20 miles away??

    Advice to Management

    Stay away
