    I worked at Hospice of the Chesapeake full-time

    Pros

    Fulfilling work. Sharp, compassionate caregivers on the frontline. Good reputation in the community.

    Cons

    Mid-level clinical management is the worst I have ever seen. It's no wonder they don't provide care. They probably never could.

    Advice to Management

    Upper Level Management. Have a meeting with Human Resources about listening to your nurses concerns, and instruct them to go above their immediate supervisor when something doesn't sound right. They go to the immediate supervisor whom does nothing but make them pay for going over their head. Then there is no choice but to leave. There is more to HR than staffing and benefits.

    Pros

    Great team members who care

    Cons

    Top leaders don't listen or care

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN!! You continue to risk our licenses by forcing us to commit fraud...patients admitted and kept on service too long. You give Hospice at large a bad name.

    I have been working at Hospice of the Chesapeake full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great equal coworkers. All disciplines seem to have pts. and families best interests at heart. Coworkers that will help you even after hours. Compassionate care from nurses, CNAs, SW and chaplains.

    Cons

    Lazy management. Dictatorship. Don't take employee concerns seriously. Being run like a for profit hospice and has lost that personal touch. Few MDs. Mostly NPs. They all quit before too long. Hearing more and more negatives from the community.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees concerns and take them seriously. Stop making empty promises to both employees and families. Follow Medicare guidelines.

    I worked at Hospice of the Chesapeake (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a strong focus on the mission and sustaining the level of support it provides to the community. Everyone cares about the work they do. I had a great team who were professional and fun to work with. Also, the RN Case Managers are an extraordinary group of people who are passionate about their patient care. There is a lot of growth opportunity on the clinical side.

    Cons

    It can be hard to move foward in the changing healthcare environment, but that is currently found anywhere in healthcare. Worklife/Balance is something they have worked on a lot in the last year.

    Advice to Management

    Although turnover here is below industry average, perception can be everything.

    Pros

    Great mission, great leadership, great camraderie, and surprisingly good benefits. I think a lot of people would be surprised at how much joy and laughter there is around here.

    Cons

    The pay is about what you'd expect for a nonprofit. But then there's all that good karma. It's hard to put a value on that!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Hospice of the Chesapeake full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Hospice of the Chesapeake is a nonprofit that is careful steward of the funds it raises. They have a strong plan for moving forward to become a leader in the field of hospice and palliative care. Its grief programs are top notch, with dedicated professionals who are constantly seeking to improve and educate. They offer many professional development programs both internally and for the public and other professionals. Technology and facilities are kept current. Volunteers, an integral part of the mission of any hospice, are thoroughly trained and encouraged to participate in numerous free training that staff also can take part in. Vacation time is very generous and leadership is thoughtful and understanding. Quarterly meetings, called Town Halls, keep the staff well informed of the leadership's plans and how employees fit in.

    Cons

    The nature of the business means there is a disconnect between different departments. Health benefits favor single individuals -- family plans are very expensive.
