Therapist (Former Employee) – Tallahassee – October 6, 2015
Everyone is basically a new employee and everyone is miserable. Just saying that the corporation is disorganized would be a complete understatement. Your supervisors (of which I had several) will bully you and your colleagues. The right hand doesn't know what the left is doing 24/7. The harder I tried the worse it got. Several times I could hear someone crying in the director's office. Several times the director would call everyone into a meeting and then shout about what a terrible job we were doing. That's always great for morale. I encountered unprofessional and belittling behavior constantly via email and over the phone. Your caseload will be greater than you can manage. Patient care is less important than how many people you can see a day. I had so many patient's tell me that someone came in the door just as fast as they went out. That's not what I would want my loved one to face when in need. Quantity over quality. This is a toxic work environment and only breeds more negativity. This is only a job I would take if NOTHING else were available.
No work/life balance. Poor communication. High turnover.
Stay out of the office politics. Stay out of the office as much as possible.
Spiritual Care Coordinator (Former Employee) – Nashville, TN – October 6, 2015
There is no job security. In 3 months, 3 personnel were dismissed and 5 personnel resigned. PRN served as a full-time employee for nine months with a caseload of 60+, when position was advertised, it was given to a person outside of company with less pastoral experience. There are no opportunities for promotions.
The ability to work with patients and family members.
Management has no concern for personnel. If an employee is not favored by management, they will be dismissed and/or forced to resign.
Field LPN (Former Employee) – Sarasota, FL – October 5, 2015
Great Company to work for. Worked as a LPN in the field. Managers are very great and are there when you need them. Sometimes hard to manage work and home life. Hours are normal great but have to rotate weekends.
Account Executive/Home Care Specialist (Former Employee) – Naples/Fort Myers, FL – October 3, 2015
Day would start with maintenance calls and then some cold calls, visits to hospitals systems and nursing facilities. I had some great managers in my 11 year tenure at Gentiva. I enjoyed the energy level of this employment and my co-workers. Gentiva closed many offices in South Florida suddenly and was surprising to all of us. Having re-located to SC now I would love to work for them again.
Licensed Medical Social Worker (Former Employee) – Spartanburg, SC – October 1, 2015
Gentiva is a large company that focuses on patient-centered care. Team work is encouraged and is the center of true patient care. There is no micro-management which makes it delightful to perform your job.

CNA (Former Employee) – Rock hill SC – September 29, 2015
Don't leave your FT to go work there, CNA try to get over on new CNA work load sucks,drive time btw patients is awful & don't get paid drive time, if census are low you have to use PTO to even make up for hours, get paid by the visit, CNA is very unappreciated, and if your not in that certain group then your overlooked!!! Not a truthful,trustworthy company from my experience to work for!Everybody I've had close encounter with complains of wrong treatment but too scared to stand up for what's rite. The interview process sounded sweet but once I hit that field on my own it was horrible... You never know what to expect hour to hour,minute to minute working there. Please pray before accepting what's suppose to be full time before you leave a for sure full time job that's what happened to me.
Lack of communication, no for sure work, not knowing what your work will be like on a day to day basis.
Work with people of all cultures and an exciting feeling of providing help to those in need
Povider (Current Employee) – Houston, TX – September 28, 2015
Wonderful company to work for loved the support of the office personnel. Awesome feeling helping those that are in need, such a rewarding feeling knowing that I could be of any assistance. Knowing that you are needed and being able to fulfill those needs makes you want to keep going day after day and you cant put a price on that.
HR/Payroll Specialist (Current Employee) – Overland Park, KS – September 20, 2015
This is a great place to work for. The benefits are great and they really do take care of their employees. This is a corporate setting and there is a lot of responsibilities that are involved in making sure that that the clients as well as the employees are taken care of. Everyone is friendly and ready to help at any given moment. There are also opportunities for growth.
Care Team Coordinator (Current Employee) – Missouri – September 15, 2015
Never get a break...management has no idea what is going on and uses Pinterest as a means of communication. Mamagement has no desire to grow branch...and would rather lay low under the corporate radar. The place is sketchy at best. Do not trust Management.
LISTEN TO ME PEOPLE...theres a reason they pay so well.
Gentiva was a very good company to work for and beleived souly in patient care.
