Pros: great people are your team
Cons: excessive pressure from cold upper management
I loved making a positive impact on our patients, their caregivers, families and friends. Some of my best memories are patients and their families/caregivers that I got close to. My co-workers in the field are dedicated compassionate and truly caring people and it's great working with a team and as a team. The team managers are a mixed bag, some good and some a terror to work under.
The worst part? Upper management. They care about making the company money more than anything. The atmosphere was becoming tense, hypercritical, frequent messages threatening our jobs if we don't do this and that and get your quota patients seen and the ever-increasing paper work done perfectly in a 8hr day. The 8hr day, if done even close to all "they" demanded was in fact a 10hr day. If we claimed OT "they" would brow-beat the team managers who would pass it on to us so we didn't claim OT and finished our work unpaid. I did not appreciate living in fear of my job .
