    I have been working at Hospice of Palm Beach County full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The service to the community it serves is beyond reproach and this is due to the dedication of the staff that put the patients first

    Cons

    Management is focused on numbers at the expense of the employees... they lack loyalty and respect

    Advice to Management

    The employees will and have gone above and beyond for the patients but the work environment you are nurturing breeds division, lack of support, and resentment because everyone is busy covering their own behind instead of working as a team.

    I worked at Hospice of Palm Beach County full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The only reason people stay is for the benefits, once you get to a higher pay status at the end of the year you are let go.

    Cons

    The entire organization is in bits and pieces fighting amongst themselves and how much money they get, not interested in the employee's or the patients care, poor training and a hostile work environment.

    Advice to Management

    If you want to grow so fast and make your bonuses at the end of the year don't do it on the backs of the workers.

    I have been working at Hospice of Palm Beach County full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I loved working with the patients

    Cons

    management that only care about making money, the patient supplies are getting cheaper and junkier by the week. Management force employees to do jobs that they were not hired for or leave. CEO making a million a yr and nurses aides, who do the real work , make less than $30,000.No raises. Over worked, very large case loads, making it impossible to form a deep bond with the hospice family. No wonder everyone is quitting

    Advice to Management

    Learn that it is not only about money. Employees matter. if they are unhappy, stressed in the field, the families can sense it

    Pros

    This company has a comprehensive benefit package

    Cons

    Growth mode mentality is resulting in a steady stream of resignations and senior management tends to overlook the core reasons for the exodus.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the trenches with your employees, spend a day experiencing the field frustrations for yourself. You'd be surprised how much you can learn without spending $ after $ trying to fix problems you haven't experienced.

    I worked at Hospice of Palm Beach County full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    For a non-profit, the pay is really quite good. PTO is generous, benefits good.

    Cons

    Lack/ absence of leadership is frustrating. The leadership that does exist is self-serving and ego centric. Recently acquired Hospice by the Sea, and inherited some great workers, but terrible leaders. In last 6 mos, 4 directors (all femaile) have quit and 2 other critical information employees. Really HATE to see this company go down tubes any further. They need to clean house starting with the CIO then COO. CEO is ok, but needs to stay in touch a bit more.

    Advice to Management

    Please open eyes and look at what is causing high recent turnover of key employees/directors. An acquired 'asset' from the merger is a cavity in your organization. Please stop using high paid un-vested consultants to manage your business! You have spent >1 million on these folks, just be smart and hire folks to do the job(s). And, if you want to keep them, you will need to clean house of some leadership.

    I worked at Hospice of Palm Beach County full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The organization is financially stable and has a good reputation in the community. Hospices in general have good reputations in the community.

    Cons

    They have forgotten why they are in business. Leaders are more concerned with getting bigger than with the level of care that is involved. Because they have a lot of money, they spend it stupidly and wastefully. Time off is difficult to get, training is last minute and everything is about getting more patients and "beating Vitas". This feels unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Gt back in touch with the mission of the organization, forget about getting bigger until it happens because of the excellent care. Stop knocking down the other hospices in the area. That doesn't help anyone.

    Pros

    working with the patients and families is very rewarding

    Cons

    Management reward themselves handsomely while cutting the regular employees. They are not honest and will say anything to obtain their objectives.

    Advice to Management

    All of your good people are leaving. You will be soon be left with only the puppets. You continue to cut back on the benefits and capping the salaries of employees while you are giving the chosen few Lexus and hefty raises. This is supposed to be a not for profit compassionate organization. You have lost your way.
