    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.

    Pros

    The people I work with was amazing. They really took care of the pts and families. The nurses always made sure that they got things done.

    Cons

    Being sent to one facility all day. Not getting any mileage when other people got 100+ miles a day. Having a large work day and then the company complaining about over time.

    Advice to Management

    If you do not want employees getting overtime then you need to hire more help. And if they do get over time do not write them up for it.

    Pros

    You can set your own schedule and you are not chained to your desk. Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Too heavy in middle management. One mgr will tell you one thing and a second one will say something else. Who do you follow? Always about the numbers. Some office personnel are very clique-ish and mgt. has their favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Upper mgt. needs a greater presence in the local offices to see exactly what goes on when you aren't looking.
