Certified Nursing Assistant (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – December 9, 2015
I still can not believe I stayed with this company for 8 years. They only care about themselves (office staff) and money. Money money money! "Let's see how many clients we can grab up and not fully staff!" I only gave 3 stars overall rating because I had met some awesome clients during my time here. A few not so great ones, but always people who deserved a higher standard of care. But it seems like only us CNA's truly cared about the clients. And certainly, no one cared for us. I spent the majority of my 8 years stressed out and burned out. At one point, my husband moved us 2 hours away from work. Do you think Accord was willing to move some staff around? NO! One more than one case (not just that one), I've had to commute 2 hours one way. Very rarely are you compensated for mileage. A few occasions, I was promised a gift card for coming in on my only off day. I'm still waiting for that. The nurses lie to you and your client and sometimes ask YOU to lie to your client FOR THEM.
My last case, my client was suffering. Dying. I wanted to do nothing more than whatever I had to do so the client could be comfortable. But my nurse supervisor came up with a ridiculous care plan for all shifts that did not actually help the client and threatened to remove me from the case if I continued to do things like turn the client more than every 2 hours. This was a very strenous case and we all ran our butts off and were exhausted. I understand that but still felt trapped and forced to go against my gut. In hindsight, I'll never do that again. She didn't care about the client's comfort. Evenmore... the family could sense that about her.
I was supposed to receive my yearly raise in December, a year ago. I waited and waited for it. The previously mentioned nurse also said she'd work on getting us all pay increases for that last case because it was such a tough case. All talk, no action. Lies.
After I left the company, they continued to call me occasionally about picking up some hours. When I finally decided some part time hours would be okay, they lie about letting me know where to place me and then sent me a separation notice. Don't call me again; you'll never have my help Accord. Ridiculous business.less
Some awesome clients, exposure to different cultures.
CERTIFIED NURSING ASSISTANT (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – March 2, 2017
The worst place to work. This company does not care about their field employees at all. They make up lies if they want to switch you to another patient, they play favoritism. They're supposed to give you raises but they don't do it unless you bring it to their attention. Working with the patients they have, quadriplegics, paraplegics and brain injury patients, you should be getting paid more than $10 an hour, but they do not care about their caregivers, the ones that do all the work. They will tell you that you are off of a case two to three days before it ends. If you choose to work for this agency by all means go for it but do not make them your primary income provider, I suggest you work for multiple agencies.
Individuals that work in the office, they have no good moral compass with their employees. They greatly lack empathy
This company cares about no one but themselves. Worse company I ever worked for. Staff changes with the season. Can never reach staff because they are ALWAYS in a freaking meeting but sit right there and listen to you on speaker phone as if you dont have a clue. Horrible excuse for a agency.
Janitor part-time (Former Employee) – Saint Louis, MO – December 29, 2016
They only care about themselves. They keep short changing you and you have to call multiple times to fix it until they understand that they can't scam you.They don't defend you when people complain for no reason.They take forever to respond to your messages. Hardly any raises. They don't pay enough. Utter garbage! You have failed this city!

Management sucks!!! We changed case managers every other month! Pay was generous, the home I worked in was filthy!! Roaches, dogs that peed everywhere.. GROSS!!! You were just a body to them. They did not care about the nurses at all!! Company based out of Marietta and I could count on one hand the number of times a case manager was actually in the field the entire three years I was there!! DO NOT WORK HERE!!!!!
Worst Company in the Workers' Comp Industry and Private Pay
Internal Employee (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – February 9, 2016
Worst type of management I have ever seen. The staffing manager does people wrong, mess up, and throw others under the bus; while the CEO and HR manager just go with the flow to cover it all up. Need to be shut down permanently.....
LPN Home Health Nurse (Current Employee) – GA – November 1, 2015
this company has not problem being unprofessional you are given wrong client address and are just a body to cover the shift. client home is always missing key items to give good care. sloppy work environment. no problem to short your pay check and blame you.
Lpn (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – May 19, 2015
My co-workers are awesome, we get along well, we try to work all problems out with schedule or with case with each other. The company provides out of school nurses with the experience they need to start their career. The experience with tracheostomy care, g-tube care, catheter care is something that you only perform on dolls in school but coming out of school and getting the hands on experience is much different. Management is good and returning your calls and if every an emergency arise they are good at covering shift.
Internal employee (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – April 10, 2015
Management is unprofessional and is very unorganized. HR manager knows and does nothing about issues you bring up to her. Pay is low with all positions. Co workers were great that was the only good part of the job. The hardest part is working long hours with no appreciation. I did learn alot of skills that I can use at a better job. Moral is very low internally and externally and they do nothing about it expect make you work more. No real job security. You can not have a life working here.
co-workers, office next a Starbucks
no break room, no advancement, pay, management, building is old

Licensed Practical Nurse (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – February 26, 2015
Cared for quadriplegic in his home. Provided nursing skills. Ran errands, housekeeping duties. Felt like I was leaving one home and going to another. Didn't feel like work at all. I drove an hour to work for 6 years. Never got any mileage pay. Didn't have a problem with them until I became injured. That's when I began getting negative feedback.
Spending time with my client. Gift cards at Christmas.
This company does not care about their patients or staff. They are rude and when your patient gets sick and goes into the hospital they don't care that you don't have any work or that you wind up homeless. They promise alot but do not delivet. They will lie to you and swear they didn't say it. This company should be shut down. They are just getting rich off someone's tragedy. And laughing when they walk away. They have already been sued for improper TX of employees. Research the company. This is the worst mistake you will ever make. Nurse managers who will not return a call but expect you to answer the call on the first ring. My nurse manager would not even return the call when I was in the er with my pt..... RUN...

The company handles workers comp patients. They are very professional. I've enjoyed working for them. My co-workers are LPNs and we get along well. I assist hem with their duties. I help out as much as I can.There is nothing hard about my present job. The most enjoyable part of my job is making my client happy and keeping a smile on their face.
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – December 11, 2013
a typical day at work is when my patient has doctors appointments I always learn something new everyday I learned a new procedure in how to care for my patients Management is good about finding new cases for me to work I only get to talk to a coworker when its time to change shifts the hardest thing is when the patient moves away and I don't get to see them any more The best part is when my patient is pain free and they are having a good day
Staffing Coordinator (Former Employee) – Marietta, GA – October 2, 2013
My typical day at work here consisted upon answering phones an scheduling nurses to go out an take care of patients in their homes. I learned with this company that a lot of people get injured at work that requires home health to come out to assist them in their day to day living. The management staff was very understanding in any problems that we may had. The co-workers were very helpful in making sure that we handled all the phone calls in getting the clients staffed. The hardest part about this job is when a nurse call out at the last minute an it take you a while to find a replacement. The most enjoyable part was being able to go out an meeting the clients an the nurses on each case that we had
CNA (Current Employee) – Marietta, GA – September 7, 2013
A typical day at work is very laid back once care is done. My patient loves watching Madea so that's a day of that and we laugh all day. We can go out to the park or movies just having fun. My co- workers are nice we really have each others back. A lot of team work is involved and the hardest part of the job is none and the easiest part is all.
