Area Manager (Former Employee), Kingfisher, OK – July 20, 2015
It was an enjoyable job. Great to meet new people including discharge planners, social workers, and nurses. Traveled daily to visit with doctors in different areas regarding services that we could offer.

RN case manager (Former Employee), utah – June 27, 2015
They promised me a lot and then the job I was hired to do was not given to me and they "offered" something else that I had no training or experience to do. Very frustrating. I was uncomfortable about re-certifying patients that were questionable and all they wanted was Medicare patients as the rest really "didn't count" towards the bottom numbers. I never made enough to cover the wear and tear on my car or family life and now I can't seem to get my 401k money now that I am employed somewhere else.
Area Manager (Current Employee), Austin, TX – June 26, 2015
Pros: PDO, culture, people love their jobs, low turnover, management is engaged and positive!
Wonderful organization! Management is so good at what they do and they create a teamwork environment. CEO is a rock star and loved by all! There are such great rewards in providing excellent home and hospice care to patients and their families, but so much hard work goes into the equation.
Culture is so positive and benefits are excellent, particularly the paid days off.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), North Texas – June 10, 2015
Pros: My patients and families
Cons: High tunrover, lack of training, no support from management, Inability to use the PDO. Long hours.
Training is nonexistent. New employees are sent into the field with minimal training and are quickly overwhelmed by the job. Turnover rate is very high. Management tells you they are making changes, but nothing materializes due to the high turnover rate. The patients and the families are the best part of the job.
Hours are long. You are expected to routinely work 12-14 hours/day. Because you are salary and they have productivity points, you are not compensated for the extra time.
The remote scheduling program trial company was trying to implement became overwhelming. There were not sufficient workers to make program successful in the actual location, much less when scheduling remotely from Amarillo.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), Tyler, TX – April 28, 2015
Pros: Excellent pay & friendly work place.
Cons: on call requirements
Management is respectful & simply have standards for employees which is wonderful when ensuring clients needs are met. Only down side is on call requirements for someone who is a single parent with children. Not a lot of room to advance.
RN Case Manager (Current Employee), Denver, CO – April 15, 2015
Pros: good benefits after 60 days
Cons: the wear and tear on your car
The hardest part of the job is you are always on your own. There is a lot to say about working in teams. You get very little training before you are thrown out on your own. The coworkers are very nice and helpful. The computer charting is the hardest thing to master. The most enjoyable part of the job is the patients. I have learned a lot in the short time I have worked there.
Medical Records (Current Employee), Tulsa, OK – February 25, 2015
Pros: good benefits
Cons: few holidays
This company is excellent to work for. Six weeks of paid days off each year, paid holidays. Family oriented company.
My day is spent sending orders and talking to physicians offices. I have learned to manage my time more efficiently. Management staff is excellent and always have an open door. I love my co-workers as my family. The hardest part of the job is making sure everything gets done in a timely manner. The most enjoyable part of my job is hearing the patients that enjoy our services.
I was in management and worked a good 12-14 hours per day not including what I did outside of the office. I was expected to be on call 24/7 with no reimbursment for my time since I was a salaried position. The amount of work they put on their staff is horrible and unrealistic. No matter how much you applied yourself it was never enough to satisfy upper mgmt. The gossip and back stabbing was the ultimate slap in the face and trust me it goes on everyday. Upper mgmt are not even onsite but maybe one day per week and yet they will micromanage you and talk about you to your peers and employees under you. My direct boss would talk about me behind my back to the employees that I managed. At one point I made a formal complaint which never went anywhere and ultimately came back on me. So watch out if you ever have a valid complaint once it gets back to your direct boss (and it will) you will go down from there. That is just a snippit of the gossip and unprofessionalism that goes on with this company. The mgmt play favorites so if you like to brown nose and be the office watchdog and you like to make false accusations and assumptions to report to upper mgmt then this will be a great place for you to work. The pay is horrible for the workload expected and the time put into working. At EHH your job will come before your family. I lost so much time with my family due to my dedication to my job. They are not family oriented and even though they make you think so it will come back to bite you. I stayed way longer than I should have.
RN Case Manager (Current Employee), Northglenn, CO – January 8, 2015
Pros: best places to work in denver
Cons: not enough staff to cover when an employee is ill.
Hardest part of the job was the travel. A typical day is going out to meet clients in the home. I learned much about what doctor expect from their clients and how they want us to deliver on-going care in the home and keep the client safe.
My co-workers were great. Very knowledgeable and took me under their wing.
Management (Current Employee), Austin, TX – November 24, 2014
Pros: paid days off, technology, continuing education, coworkers
Encompass is the best place I have ever worked. They offer hands on training and a lengthy orientation. Their employees are passionate about the patients from the top down. They use state of the art technology for their field staff. They offer unbeatable paid days off for full time employees. All employees, both FT and PT have the opportunity to attend free education classes at the Encompass home office in Dallas. The management team is approachable, caring and hard working. This is just a great place to work!
