    Room for advancement, management will to help you further yourself, ethical corporation

    Cons

    Benefits. Benefits. Benefits. Medical is a joke. For a family there’s a $5000 deductible. Makes us all avoid going to the doctor, how does that further productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of all the extra benefits like the new roadside assistance and the 5 MetLife plans and get us better medical. The turnover is all about the benefits, learn from your mistakes.

    Pros

    the patients and their families

    Cons

    micromanaging team managers, belittling patient care adminstrators. health insurance is bad and now PTO is changing .they will give us 8 a paycheck. if you want to take off two weeks for some R n R you either save for a long time or borrow the PTO. this company is going downhill from their greed!!!

    Advice to Management

    hire worker friendly managers. Dont talk down or belittle employees. drop the rule that the nurses that work monday thru friday have to work a weekend day every 4-to 6 weeks( you keep dropping the weeks lower n lower, ).training for office personel Be nice and smile to outside workers!!!!!

    I worked at VITAS Healthcare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    catered food once every few months.

    Cons

    Controlling, manipulative micromanaging supervisors- You must suck up to the director or she will demean you in everyday mannerisms. Everything is timed- even if you are 1 minute past your break, expect a courtesy email from a lazy supervisor. Management will decide right away if you are liked and will treat you accordingly.

    Advice to Management

    Back off of the coordinators and let them do their job- breathing down their neck is not what you're getting paid to do- its to delegate tasks evenly and assist when you can.
