    I have been working at Senior Whole Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I have really enjoyed my time so far at Senior Whole Health,there are tons of pros to this agency depending on what position you hold. There is a great work-life balance, if you work on the field there's an opportunity to work from home (telecommute) and it's accepted and approved by supervisors. During my time at SWH, I have had the chance to work with a great set of people, who are eager to teach new staff. There is always something new to work, which can be con, because sometimes it feels as if work is never done. Finally, the salary is very good, I find most people end up staying at SWH due to the salary.

    Cons

    This place makes you feel as if there's "tons of chief and not enough indians" due to the never ending work there is a lot of passing the buck. When I was hired I was given a set of responsibilities now I am doing more and speaking up is looks down upon as if "you're complaining". At the same time, I have realized that this will expand my resume once I leave this company but it can frustrating at times. Sometimes supervisors have unrealistic expectations, impart because they too are on the "chopping block". In regards to salary, I wish the salaries were uniform in regards to new staff.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more staff, stop trying to expand the buck, one person can do so much work.

    Pros

    Great company mission and values. Some dedicated middle managers and very talented, committed staff - especially nurses, who often were given HUGE caseloads.

    Cons

    Employees often overworked and felt underappreciated. Senior management completely out of touch with their teams - focused seemingly on the bottom line, not retaining quality staff. Very low morale throughout the company. Nothing fun about working there - marginal benefits, constant cuts to bonuses, frequent layoffs seldom explained.. .

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of dead weight in senior management roles if you want to retain good people. Trust staff/managers when they have ideas or concerns.

    Pros

    Fastest growing company with a lot of potential. The staff is nice.

    Cons

    Understaffed. One person is literally doing 4 people's job. No support from senior leadership. You can never catch up with your work which gives you so much anxiety.

    Advice to Management

    Hire enough to do the job so your talents can stay.

    Pros

    You are working side-by-side people who want to make the business succeed. You get to learn a lot about the business of home care. Since the business is dependent on government revenue as the source of income, you learn a lot about what the government expects in the business.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the foundation upon which the growth in membership is dependent upon is weak. This can be costly. In other words, the company can lose a lot of money because they have a weak foundation in nursing oversight and customer service. Member satisfaction is luke warm at best.

    Advice to Management

    Pull your head out of the sand and listen to the people who are in the trenches. Put some money in building your infrastructure. Don't always be "penny wise, pound foolish."

    Pros

    Unique opportunity to help people who are poor and need health care - colleagues are well-intentioned and kind.

    Cons

    Lots of changes in executive and middle management since new investors bought the company. Company is at risk for falling behind due to leadership vacuum. Lots of waste and inefficiency. Upper management is insulated from day-to-day activities in all locations.

    Advice to Management

    The usual advice -- be open-minded and listen to your employees.
