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

    Pros

    Benefits are good, however, they do not pay for holidays, need to use PTO. Good wages. There are some excellent, dedicated people working for LifePath. There are some people working there that don't have a clue

    Cons

    Higher up Management sitting behind a desk making decisions for Nurses when they know nothing about how to do the job, what works and what doesn't. Poor "on the job training", if you are breathing, you are hired. No trainings to keep Nurses aware of changes, documentation, medications, community resources, etc. Management not approachable. Bullying every day from Supervisors to Nurses is common. Upper management sets too high of expectations on staff, again they have no idea what the Nurses do every day, unrealistic. No structured opportunities for Nurses to grow or be recognized for achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Get a clue. I would suggest asking Nurses that work in the field, admissions and facilities to be apart of a task force to improve upon the huge knowledge gap between upper management and nsg staff.

    I have been working at LifePath Hospice full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hospice is a speciality that you either love or hate. Being proud of what I do and loving my job is the biggest pro! Laid back work environment and scheduling flexibility are big pro's. Company experience depends on your manager. Management runs the gamut from excellent to good. Great IT support! The benefits are great. I have one of the best managers in the company. I get to work close to home and I love my schedule.

    Cons

    No holiday parties or intermittent small bonuses and pay is definitely on the lower range for the Tampa area. The talent pool is riddled with not so smart nurses and lazy nurses. Nurses week celebration usually is handled by sending an e-mail to nursing staff thanking them for their service, no gifts, meals or special celebrations by an executive but not CEO. As an employee for over five years, have only seen CEO once.

    Advice to Management

    More presence of upper management amongst the front lines and increase tuition assistance and certification reimbursements. Recognize and commit to make nurses week special for nurses.


  4. "Corporate Structure Mentality"

    I worked at LifePath Hospice full-time

    Pros

    The people actually doing the work and taking care of the patients are so wonderful and really care about the families they touch.

    Cons

    Corporate executives do not seem to understand what employees go through on a daily basis and appear to care more about the bottom line than employee culture and growth.

    I worked at LifePath Hospice full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    As a driver and (DME) durable medical equipment technician you are free from being under constant supervision. The PTO time is nice and can be used after 90 days. Pay is okay starting out.

    Cons

    All DME was outsourced to a for-profit company called Allcare Medical. Horrible roach infested delivery trucks. Having to literately pull teeth to get certain things fixed. Dilapidated medical equipment. Unpredictable scheduling and having to do on-call. Antagonistic and deceiving management. Almost no advancement opportunities, no raises, very poor 401k program. Can be immediately fired for supposed HIPAA violations.

    Advice to Management

    Grow up and act professional! New and current techs need to be trained better. I personally was NEVER trained on current HIPAA laws. Buy new and better quality equipment. We should not be giving patients old rusted bedside commodes and used mattresses. Some of the equipment was downright pitiful! It is no wonder Lifepath is losing it's monopoly on hospice care in the Tampa Bay Area. Patients deserve better.

    I worked at LifePath Hospice (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Patients and families are fantastic. Wonderful co-workers, peers. Dedicated staff providing hands on care.

    Cons

    Administration is out of touch with what goes on in the field. Very unrealistic expectations, salaried RNs put in MANY extra, unpaid hours.

    Advice to Management

    Treat and pay your staff like you do the Administration. Support the staff at all levels. Create a culture that allows employees to have a personal life as well as a work life.

    Pros

    Great employees, Great making a difference in peoples lives, especially when they are in such a time of need. Great Physicians.

    Cons

    Top Heavy with corporate folks, They don't show enough appreciation for their employees and how hard they work, especially in such a very difficult, emotional field.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your field staff better, the top execs get paid very well, and get lots of perks, all of the worker bees are very much aware of the huge disparity. This is what really makes employee moral very low.
