CNA (Current Employee), richmond vaFebruary 28, 2014
Pros: patients and familys/ schedule your day
Cons: no team work.... upper management only care about their selves
They treat you like slaves being a aide is a hard job.. you will drive your car into the ground no matter how hard you work you will not get over time. No need to talk to anyone about issues going on on the job no one will listen on correct the problem they are all about keeping the numbers up. BEWARE it may look like a great place to work but from – more... experince its not! If they dont like you they will work against you to get rid of you. if not for the parients i woudnt still be here!! – less

Stay very Far Away
RN (Former Employee), Richmond VaJanuary 8, 2014
Pros: great coworkers, patients are wonderful
Cons: management is useless
Used to be a great company to work for. In the past 2 to 3 years there have been many changes and not good ones. They continue to give staff more and more responsibilities with no compensation and no regard to employees feelings or situations. Telling Nurses that they must do call with no regards to the fact that there are several single mothers that – more... work there. I am not a single mother but am appalled at the lack of respect for these employees. Current management does not know what they are doing. – less

No job stability. They will lay you off WHEN the census falls..and it will fall
RN Case Manager (Current Employee), Richmond VirginiaJanuary 3, 2014
Pros: the patients and their families
Cons: the company as a whole.
This company is about the only one in the area that has a history of laying off employees when their census drops. But the interesting part, is that when their census rises again, they dont even consider the employees back for rehire. They have even extended job offers to people, and revoked them while the person was working out their notice on their – more... old job because of their census. They have the cheapest supplies that they give their patients and cut corners in patient care to save money.There is no job security or stability in this company, its all about the bottom dollar! – less

Not the Same
CNA (Former Employee), Richmond, VAJanuary 1, 2014
Pros: pay
Cons: politics, management
It originally started out as a great company to work for, but as time went on it became an extremely unprofessional place to work. Management will lie on you to have you fired or demoted in your position simply because they dont like you. Upper level management had inappropiate relationships with each other. This in turn affected the workers because – more... of favoritism being shown. The pay was good but horribly expensive benefits. In the end it was not about the patients but making money for the company that mattered the most. – less

We all felt like a family
Marketing Area Manager (Former Employee), DeSoto, TXDecember 26, 2013
Pros: meeting the exspectations of a patient and there family
Cons: looseing my contacts to compettitors
I take the target market that is assigned and list every possible free standing entity that has multiple diagnosis that qualify a patient to receive an education about this free help them and there families.
After listing my possibilities my are I like to make 12 -15 visits, i locate medical director's in the nurse and assisted livings. I love the fact – more... that I get to supply a free service that lacks education and I dislike putting in 6 years of growth up to 100 to 160 a year and lose my job to the corp .marketing director. – less

The most rewarding job on earth
Marketing Specialist (Former Employee), Beaumont, TXDecember 13, 2013
Pros: everyday is a blessing !!
Cons: it was very difficult to say 'goodbye' to great patients.
This job required me to meet with terminally ill patients. My daily goal was to simply find a way to be a blessing to a family member, friend and patient everyday while relieving them of worries that came along with end of life.

Stressful and Uncaring
Nurse (Former Employee), Richmond, VADecember 4, 2013
Cons: poor management
Certain management needs to learn Management 101. It's a business but it can't function without the employees. There is life outside of work.

Look down on CNA
family member (Former Employee), Virginia BeachSeptember 5, 2013
Pros: benefits
Cons: look down on their cna
Run as fast as you can! The CNA drive their wheels off the cars over a month will go by with no travel pay. The CNA are treated badly. Management have poor skills. Some of nurses smile in your face then talk about the clients houses how it look inside. The Richmond and Newport News office need to take a class on good management skills

NO BALANCE BETWEEN WORK AND HOME
RN (Current Employee), VAJuly 8, 2013
Pros: schedule your day
Cons: upper management look at numbers only and not acuity of patients
They will work the RN half to death. They won't give you any help when you ask. In the Fredericksburg office they expect the RN to casemanage AND take call 1 week at a time. If you are out all night you still have to see patients the next day because there are no other staff to help. You basically work 200+ hours per pay period (salary employee so they – more... really make out to save money). If the management in the Richmond office don't like you then they will get rid of you. It is probably the worst place I've worked due to upper management. – less

RN's: run if you value your license
RN (former employee) (Former Employee), Phoenix AZJanuary 19, 2013
Pros: some management helpful; pay was ok.
Cons: has grown too large; uncaring management. poor work/life balance.
Another 'for profit' that tries to act like they care for the patients. If you love marketing, marketing and more marketing, this is the job for you.

Run away!!!

Great place to work
admission RN (Current Employee), new jerseyJanuary 6, 2013
Pros: flexibility
Have started in this company approx 6 years ago with no knowledge of hospice care. This company took me under their wing and taught me so well how to properly care for the dying patient . The staff and management work together and are very supportive of each other. From the corporate offices throughout the individual satellite offices everyone displays – more... a family like atmosphere. Considerate of caseloads for staff, continued education for advancement in company, and comparable salaries are just what this company offers. The only thing asked of staff in return is compassionate competent teamwork approach. Interview and see for yourself. – less

Really loved working in hospice with a focus on geriatrics. Company however does not support its employees at all.
Case Manager (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 8, 2012
Employees were valued very little despite management thinking otherwise. Caseloads were too high to effectively care for the dying patient and all that entails. I would not reapply to work here

good place to work
Certified Nurse Assistant (Former Employee), conroe, houston texasAugust 2, 2012
Whe I first started working there I had no knowledge of what hospice was about. The administrater then asured me it would be a different kind of experience and it was, I was trained by a CNA that was an angel to everyone. I would go to her for spiritual advice every once and a while and she was always there for me, there were other nurses that educated – more... me on feelings and death,
I enjoyed every part of my job and my co-workers all worked together, teamwork. then new managment was hired and most of us left, most not by choice. But it was a good place to work. – less

excellent workplace
RN (Former Employee), Wichita Falls, TXApril 28, 2012
Pros: free drinks, snacks
Cons: job dependent on number of patients
Staff is caring, devoted to patients. Great attention to each patient. Co workers all very helpful. Go into office each morning, get daily assignments, go see patients. Most enjoyable part of job is being there to help patients in their time of need. Hardest part of job is when you lose a patient.
