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

    Pros

    Coworkers were for the most part pleasant to work with. Made lasting friendships with some of them.

    Cons

    Tons of micro-management. Oppressive work atmosphere. Money is the bottom line with this organization. They do not care about the needs of the elderly. It's all about the money.

    Advice to Management

    Total restructuring of management starting at the top.

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

    Pros

    Management willing to work with work/life balance as much as they can. Close knit group of nurses, SW, SCC, Volunteer Services, HR, Intake, Billing, Nurse Managers. Executive Director of Milwaukee/Burlington Branch very effective in his position.

    Cons

    Noticeable changes in day to day operations since bought out by Kindred. Has more corporate based influence in which it is easy for employees needs/ideas to get lost in.

    Advice to Management

    For the senior (corporate) level, employees feel disconnected from the organization r/t too many middle managers involved with what should be simple problem resolution. Direct Management retains the comfortable feeling of being a team through attitude, events, and general day to day operations.

    Pros

    Hospice work is rewarding. I enjoyed my coworkers and clients. The office was clean.

    Cons

    Focus is too much on quantity versus quality. Policies and procedures change quickly. Not enough emphasis placed on team cohesion. Lots of turnover.

    Advice to Management

    It would be helpful if the managers knew what it was like to carry a homecare hospice caseload. Management also needs to focus on leadership training.

    I have been working at Gentiva full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The local office personnel were great to work with across the board, including fellow clinicians, supervising staff and office staff.

    Cons

    Upper level management employs too many who are paid to run metrics on everything under the sun and have too much time to point out more and more nonsense ways for the clinicians to duplicate information on our notes that are already way too long. The higher level management has lied about matters as well. I do not want to work for this type of organization that apparently condones these actions and lies from more than one person.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to some to the fine Ted talks out their that describe how management ought to be treating their employees so they will become eager, dedicated and more productive, rather than feeling used by and tread upon by the company's chain of command.
