    I have been working at Gentiva full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    A lot of autonomy. Able to manage own schedule. 1 on 1 pt care. Rewarding relationships with pts and families and referal sources.

    Cons

    Lack of management follow through. Everything is always changing. Enduring another company buyout. Years with no raises. Worsening insurance and insurance company changes yearly. HR is very hard to reach and not local.

    Pros

    Great company who supports their employees and is an advocate for advancement and promotes from within. This employer strives for greatness.

    Cons

    While this company strives for employee satisfaction, there is pressure for high volume which can be difficult and looked at as unrealistic expectations which makes work/life balance nearly impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Review the expectations for this role

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

    Pros

    The company cared about the employees. I was always treated very well. The company spent a lot of time doing research and implementing best practices.

    Cons

    I really have nothing negative to say. Some people may complain about the way they encourage longer care plans, but the research is there to back it and after all, it is a business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep treating your employees well and keep providing leadership that encourages your staff to be better.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Good managers and office staff. Pretty good rehab staff, some are better than others but you'll find that wherever you work. Tons of educational materials, lots of classes and skills checks performed to make sure clinicians are up to par. Compensations is decent.

    Cons

    Always seems to be issues with nursing which reflects poorly on the rest of the care team. Lots of issues with the documentation software and email system, which is a major issue since that's how clinicians communicate and get paid. Unrealistic productivity requirements. As soon as Gentiva was bought by Kindred they increased productivity requirements for new hires.

    Advice to Management

    I can't speak for other branches but the management at my office does a good job, but they need to be on top of nursing to make sure they are showing up when they are supposed to and/or communicating with the care team and patient with regards to schedule changes.
