Payroll and Data Entry Clerk (Current Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – May 27, 2016
Love doing what I do with the team I do it with. It really a wonderful company to work for. It's lots of laughs with lots of hard work. We typically have 100 referrals a day to get entered in a timely manner for 24 branches. Its hard work, bt at the end of the day we manage to get the job done.
RN Case Manager (Current Employee) – San Marcos, TX – May 25, 2016
I cannot speak for other Gentiva locations, but the San Marcos location is a horrible place to work. When I first started working there, I was paired with many of the Case Managers on their visits for the day. I was amazed at how quickly they opened up to me. They talked about management and disorganized they are. One manager will tell you to chart one way and then you will get the document returned from another manager telling you to make those changes back the way you had them. Very, very disorganized. And they chastise you when they are correcting you about something. They would speak to me like I was 10 years old and I had done something wrong. The training I received before I was on my own was ridiculous. I had only observed one admission, and management gave me an admission twice a week. There are many hospice companies out there who have a competent management team. Looking for new employment now!
RNs work as a team. They all think the same about management, as they all told me, even when I was very new.
Unprofessional, unethical, and abusive management. If you want to spend some time in a psych ward, go work for this company a while.
LPN (Former Employee) – Lees Summit, MO – May 24, 2016
This workplace was one of my favorite. Excellent manager who was honest and appropriate with staff and delegation. Taught me excellent nursing skills that I continue to use to this day. Would not have left this company if I would not have moved to Florida, and was able to move to full time. Would strongly consider working for this company again.
Account Executive (Current Employee) – Kansas City, MO – May 23, 2016
They do really well with taking care of their employees and putting patients first. They provide quality care and have great specialty programs. This is a nationwide company and provides great care across the nation.
Home Health Aide (Current Employee) – Raleigh, NC – May 14, 2016
Gentiva cares about their employees and the patients they serve. The pay is not great, but is competitive. My co-worker are wonderful. The hardest part of the job is the driving, I put about 150 miles on my car a day. The most enjoyable part of my job is seeing my patients.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Dothan, AL – May 2, 2016
Worked there for 6 months, volunteered for extra hours to try and help out because they were so short-staffed; then when things got tough, they started cutting jobs. Management is horrible, only look out for themselves. Director has no loyalty to anyone but herself! Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone!
Good co-workers, bad managers.
12 hour days, multiple expectations, no appreciation, then expected to pull call.
Office staff always gets their hours, field staff, if its slow go home unpaid.
HHA/CNA (Former Employee) – San Jose, CA – April 29, 2016
Worked their for many years, constant management change, managers acted like high school kids with their clicks, luckily my pts loved me. The plus side of this job flexible, nice coworkers and lovely pts who made my day.Benefits and pay were good enough to put up with the bad management.
RN Case Manager Hospice (Current Employee) – Alabama – April 19, 2016
Truly value my time with coworkers out there trying to give the best experience to hospice patients and their families. The case managers generally try and take care of each other but burn out is evident. Morale is low and this is because management will threaten you, pile on more work, and never rescue their staff when overload happens. Text messages with all caps, multiple exclamation points, and innuendo do not a happy staff make.
Good pay, autonomy, loving field staff
management that have no intention of leaving the safety of their desks to provide support
Great company but as a nurse you have NO LIFE outside of work
CASE MANAGER (Former Employee) – NC – April 19, 2016
Management and company are great but you have no personal life outside of work. You see patients all day then go home and document for hours at a time. Their form of communication is all e-mail so you better be on your tablet all the time or it gets lost in the shuffle. The benefits here are phenomenal though, lots to choose from, they even offer pet insurance which has been great. The only thing I would change is their communication style. Pick up a phone and call someone during the day.
Loved going to work. I had an amazing team that was fun to work with. I managed RN, LPN, PT, OT, PTA, COTA, HHA. We averaged about 220. I was the quality assurance manager. I reviewed oasis, paperwork, medicare billing.
Staffing Coordinator/payroll (Current Employee) – San Antonio, TX – April 15, 2016
Great place to work, multitasking is a must in this field. Works with clients and providers on a daily basis. The most enjoyable part of my job is making a difference when it comes to my clients. The hardest part is keeping up with all the daily issues that you have to deal with on a daily basis. My co-workers are very professional even when we a rough day. We do have our ups and downs but we can always move pass it and move forward for a better tomorrow.
Great pay & fun eviroment
Hard to get time off to handle your personal matters
Volunteer/Intern (Former Employee) – Atlanta, GA – April 11, 2016
The staff within the agency environment is family oriented and warming. Visiting terminally ill patients and meeting patients are rewarding but can be emotionally draining I have learned to maintain boundaries with patients as as well as staff. Management commit to open communication with staff member if there are any suggestions or issues regarding patients. the most difficult part of the job is traveling between patient visits during peak times of traffic. The most enjoyable part of the job is providing emotional and social support to patients and families.
