    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Service of New York full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits, friendly coworkers (mostly), New office space (open floor plan and could be a con for some)

    Cons

    No training or documentation. It's a pure figure it out environment. Work life balance depends on department. It was a mess before and what is being done to change things aren't for the better. Unrealistic expectations by senior management. Very little room for growth unless someone quits, or gets fired, or you threaten to leave. Management doesn't listen.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. We're in the weeds and can tell you what the problems are and when you don't listen and instead put more burdens on the staff and wonder why we're shutting down and not giving you 100%, that is why. It comes to the point where we've said what we needed to and we just stop caring. When an entire department feels that way, I think it's safe to say the problem lies higher up.

    Pros

    Great benefits. The PTO was great.

    Cons

    Even if you are working as much as you can, they will always make you increase your area. The PTs and OTs would be more productive if they would compensate the rehab staff like the nurses.

    Pros

    Company has great vision, and what I appreciate the best is VNSNY's mission is to help the vulnerable. With it's experience in Health Care for 125 years, it enabled VNSNY to achieve bigger goals and better outcomes. I am just proud to be part of this organization. And I am in a great team, great leadership who values/cares about the staffs and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Can't think of any at the moment.

    I have been working at Visiting Nurse Service of New York full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The only pro is they have dedicated workers that did not abandon the company and working hard for a positive turnaround

    Cons

    took away every incentive that was given to employees they are no reason for anyone to join they employees are overworked no more work/life balance no annual raises and turn most employees to non except so no more bonuses and Management are not approving overtime

    Advice to Management

    This company has nothing to offer to employees but a job that the pay is no longer competitive because all employees are overworked due to the layoffs however the one incentive most employees had was to telework and that was now taken away

    Pros

    Pto
    Fmla
    Coworkers are nice
    Minor tuition assistance
    Direct deposit

    Cons

    Can’t use pto
    No work life balance
    Expected to take on workload of 5 people
    Not enough staff
    Manager and supervisor constantly accuse staff of not being productive or not working
    Supervisor constantly telling people they can leave
    Company only appreciative of clinical staff
    Telework is dangled like a carrot
    No solidified workflows or processes in place because manager keeps changing them.
    No one you can ask questions because mgr and supervisor are never available and always start their day later than the rest of the staff.
    Everything is considered unplanned pto.
    There is stuff that looks like mold in the ceilings in some small areas and in general not sanitary.
    No growth opportunities.
    Turn around is low but people are constantly let go due to plan changes and limited budgets.
    Everyone is constantly be stressed and has lots of anxiety over unrealistic workloads.
    Medical and dental coverage is subpar and company contribution doesn’t cover a lot.
    Raises when they have them are only up to 2% depending on how your manager/supervisor reviews you which they also like to remind you constantly can be affected if you don’t put in enough time

    Advice to Management

    You hold town halls but the concern is always about the company’s profits and the clinical staff. Look out for the little people. Look out for your operations staff. Hire enough people and treat them with respect while having realistic work productivity expectations.
