Pros: flexible days and shifts
Cons: low wages compared to industry average
I worked for Vitas in the role of Triage nurse for many years. The morale was very low, Micro-management of employees is the norm, raises were frozen, turnover was high, vacation requests were consistently denied. Management lacks trust.
A typical work day is extremely busy and short staffed.
The environment is team oriented as delivery of hospice services requires a team effort to be successful.
The hardest part of the job is the constant review of statistics extolling employees to do more and more, while the company denied pay raises and cut benefits to the bone.
