I feel blessed for the on-gpoing support I recieved at Pathways
RN, Case Manager (Current Employee) – San Jose, CA – December 14, 2014
Pathways starts you off with an excellent training program and continues to provide an ongoing supportive atmosphere. Our medical directors are ands-on and take extra time to explain and educate on disease process specific to our patients. Our nursing team is truly dedicated to patient comfort and will always go above and beyond to do whatever is necessary for our patients & families.
The down side is we often do not have enough nurses to cover PTO and special circumstances, which tends to be frustrating.
Management needs a serious reality check and overhaul
Small Cog (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, Ca – July 20, 2014
Pathways has been in business for 3 decades. Their business model and practices have not changed. There is a culture and climate of fear that eminates from the CEO and VPs on down through the chain. That there are so many people with a long tenure here makes it difficult to bring in new ideas and make any changes whatsoever. The company is very 'nurse centric.' if you are not a nurse, you may as well be a martian as your ideas and input is not listened to or valued. Raises are given as a lump sum or 3% per year which means if you started at $15.00 an hour, you'll still be at that amount years from now. There is no formal Training program to speak of
some of the people are nice. some.
management out of touch, culture of reprisal and fear, benefits lacking
Account Manager (Current Employee) – Oakland, CA – September 6, 2012
The company has been a staple in Hospice care in the Bay Area since 1977 and was established by Stanford physicians in the 70's. In the mid 80's, they partnered with Sequoia Hospital and El Camino Hospital to serve patients in the San Francisco Peninsula. A typical day consists of calling on accounts like Physicians, Hospital Discharge Planners, Nursing Homes, RCFE's, and networking with other companies that service the senior community. Majority of the upper management staff have been with the company on average of 10 years, which is proof that although the company deals with patients who have 6 months or less to live, the working environment is amazing. The hardest part of the job is is also the most rewarding which is supporting a family who is grieving and stressed.
friendly working environment and my immediate manager is amazing
the intake process and lack of staff make admitting a patient difficult.
Exciting place to work with such compassionate people
Home Health Aid Scheduler (Current Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – September 13, 2014
Pathways is truly a rewarding place to work. The people there have such a "willing to help" attitude. Management goes out of there way to make you feel comfortable and apart of the Team. Because we are a Hospice company, the hardest part is when my patients pass away. The most enjoyable part of my job is knowing that I am helping someone in need.
Medical Records Technician (Former Employee) – Sunnyvale, CA – March 18, 2014
very busy you never get time to relax. I have learned how to use excel with spreadsheets. The management is ok but they seem like the don't want to deal with some of the problems with certain people. I get a long with most of them but it seems like there were problems with one of them in the department. The hardest part of the job is that they wanted me to get the jobs done with the staff when there is so much work. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I learned something new with the job.
