Gain some experience and get OUT!
Admin assistance (Former Employee), Indianapolis INDecember 10, 2014
Pros: flexible hours
Cons: bad management, poor office environment
This is a very unprofessional and unorganized place to work. With a lot of emphasis based on favortism.
People will be somewhat nice to your face only to talk behind your back to management on minuscule issues.

Management is very poor and she always seemed to be overwhelmed and unwilling to help if you needed assistance.

Branch manager was very very – more... fake and only cared about referrals. And didn't care how they came in as long as they were put in. But this created problems moving forward with the standard process.

I would not establish roots with this company. Very high turn over in the office environment. This company thrives on drama – less

Have to be flexible to wear many hats to keep the job going
Care Team Coordinator (Current Employee), Statesboro, GADecember 8, 2014
Pros: salary
Cons: micromanaging from managers
I like my job due to the fact that I am a clinician who can see patients, and I work in the office. I have learned how to do payroll and Gentiva's scheduling system. I have also acted as an interim Account Executive for 4 months. I am a well rounded person and am willing to learn whatever it takes to get the job done.

Site Revenue Coordinator (Current Employee), Evansville, IN and Jasper, INNovember 12, 2014
Relaxed admosphere most days at work and a great group to work with! A fantastic organization. Most everybody here really cares about what they do and teamwork is strong throughout the company.
Management could be a little more in-tune with what's going on around the office, but overall a caring environment.

Patient-centered workplace,
Nurse Case Manager (Current Employee), Des MoinesNovember 9, 2014
Pros: salary, client interaction
Cons: difficult to maintain work life balance
This is a position requires good time-management skills. Ability to work under pressure and maintain a professional demeanor. The coworkers are great people who give their all to the clients. Most of the coworkers are traveling during the work day, developing relationships can be difficult. There is extensive paperwork and the job does not end at 5 – more... pm. The most enjoyable part of this position was being able to assist client in their time of need and be a part of their recovery. – less

Horrible place to work, will suck your soul dry
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), Anywhere, USANovember 3, 2014
Cons: will not pay you for your work, will drive you into the ground, favoritism.
Very inconsistent, bullying, favoritism. Corporate is so greedy. Work the nursing staff to the bones. Use guilt and manipulation to steal from nurses and home health aides. Falsify records, totally corrupt and greedy. Do not ever consider working here. Will not give well deserved raises. Office staff sits on there butts and runs field staff into the – more... ground. Very unfair treatment, medicare fraud, stealing from nursing staff. Corporate Greed! – less

Great Company to work for.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), Tacoma, WashingtonNovember 1, 2014
Pros: management available and supportive at any time.
Cons: long hours 24/7, salaried.
12-14 hour days as bedside clinician/case manager, with call on weekend. Salaried employee. Carried 30 patient panel. Acuity levels were moderate to severe. Some readmissions within one week due to lack of support system at home and/or acuity at discharge. Management very supportive. Coworkers were professionals in their fields and ready to assist. – more... Paperwork vs. computerization, long hours 24/7. Most enjoyable part of the job was the patients. – less

Was once a phenomenal company as VistaCare
E.D. (Former Employee), IAOctober 30, 2014
Pros: local team.
Cons: patronizing, minionizing, egocentric, minimalistic budget mentality, discriminatory.
There are no typical days except to say that they are typically crazy busy. Staffing models have been increased ie: everyone is working more. Every discipline has shortages and forget filling empty positions. Right now, the bottom line is the Most Important Issue; above patient care, above employee satisfaction.
Gentiva is selling to Kindred creating – more... the nations largest provider of post-acute care and services. If you like feeling like a minion...nows the time to hop on board at Gentiva. They will do an excellent job training you to not think, not speak, and just DO IT. Reduce costs of meds ie: convince your patients to stop meds (like insulin), or switch to less expensive ones (even if the pt already tried them).
Every penny is squeezed. Gentiva is why for-profit hospices have such a bad rep.

Would rather be on food stamps than work here
RN Case Manager (Former Employee), Clanton ALOctober 24, 2014
Pros: good compensation and benefits
Cons: paper
Would rather be on food stamps than work here again. 10 page assessment by hand and 8 page IDG notes that tell you nothing. The new documentation rolled out in May and was not piloted anywhere for any correction of glaring holes. My car and life were full of paper. The companies answer to any problem seems to be to throw more paper at it. They make – more... a stressful job a hundred times more difficult than it needs to be. There is no work/life balance. While the benefits are great there is no opportunity to take advantage of them because of caseloads of 14 to 20 patients. Compensation is also good but if you are too tired to enjoy it then what's the point. Felt used and abused. If you're looking for a job keep looking past this one. – less

Providing support to Patients/families in their time of need. was the most important part of my job.
Social Worker/Bereavement Coordinator (Former Employee), Jeffersonville, INOctober 16, 2014
Pros: the feeling that i was helpful to a patient or family member
Cons: excessive travel
I provided supportive counseling to patient's and their families regarding their feelings and the challenges of dealing with a life threatening illness. During the course of my work I learned a great deal from patients about how each individual copes. There have been multiple management changes over my tenure, their styles varied a great deal. My co-workers – more... were caring and compassionate frequently finding creative ways to assist patient's and their families.
The hardest part of the job had to be not finding options in some situations, even when using creative solutions. I found patient's/families expressing happiness to see me or relief upon my arrival to be the most gratifying. – less
