Team Coordinator (Former Employee) – Mountain Grove MO – January 11, 2019
The TC job description is four pages long and is an unreasonable expectation to put on one person, that is, taking into consideration the census. Computer work can tend to take all day long and managing charts and the paperwork is a task in itself, when you can get to it. I learned that management can make or break an office. Compassus is big on TEAM, but bad on conveying information to the team, unless being reprimanded. The management will allow you to work yourself to burn out. Huge turnover. Overwhelming paperwork. The entire office struggles to keep up with duties. Too little time to get all of the work finished in a day and a revolving door of constant paperwork that is unmanageable and unforgiving. Very disappointed in leadership.
Disorganized no one knew how to use the computer program
Field Nurse for Hospice (Former Employee) – Corpus Christi, TX 78411 – December 23, 2018
Morning meeting, get assignment and start seeing patients. Management was ok but no one knew how to use the computer program which didnt help me. The computer program was the hardest part of the job. I did not enjoy this job.
I worked there for 2 years. I never got any kind of training, or an evaluation, or raise. One of the top managers brothers runs a successful competitive company and we were constantly having to sign forms stating that we weren't working for him or sending him information. So lots of paranoia. Any complaints filed w HR were supposed to be anonymous but no one cares about confidentiality and would let everyone know who specifically complained so everyone is scared. Anyone raising questions about process or questioning certain managers will be labeled a snitch. If you get approved for PTO, and fall out of the family's graces they will tell you it is canceled last minute. Lots of abusive language and racism. The field staff have to work 2 jobs to make ends meet. There are not enough patients. Family members of top said manager get raises and promotions and extended lunches. There are 5 people working in the office directly related. Lots of distant relatives as well. Crying every day is normal for everyone. Be prepared for random office staff meetings where top managers burst into tears and you feel left out for being less emotional and volatile. You will be threatened. Maybe the company itself is good, maybe it's just the management. The benefits are so bad no one takes care of their health. Management makes fun of people with the company's health plan saying openly that it is terrible. Departments will gang up on eachother. Fighting is encouraged and will label you as tough. It will steal your sparkle and make you think something is wrong with you.
RN Case Manager (Former Employee) – Orange, CT – December 13, 2018
Very disorganized and demanding. Focus is on numbers (quantity) over quality of care. The CEO in the Orange office was pushing numbers and accepting referrals (admissions) without the appropriate nursing staff to provide quality and safe/ethical care to the dying patients and their families. CEO is very demanding of the nursing staff and overworking some very caring and hard working nurses creating an unsafe environment. Also. the benefits are the worst I've seen for working families especially single parents. The benefits offered to working families are shameful ( ultra expensive) and another clear example of the for profit culture at Compasses. If you value your nursing license steer clear of Compassus. I do not recommend this company.
a few staff members.
quantity over quality...focus on making money over ethics
Third largest hospice group in the US Christian based company. Built on compassion and love I recruited volunteers to be companions in patients home and facilities. Once I find someone I inview them, then train them and supervise them. Work day consist of interviewing potential volunteers, Traveling to communities ( facilities) to market Compassus Hospice by providing ice cream socials and other events.
Poor mangement and dishonest from all administration
Marketing Consultant (Former Employee) – missouri – November 14, 2018
The work environment was toxic. I was treated unfairly and with absolutely no respect. I attempted to call HR and was never helped with my complaints. I would not recommend this company to anyone at any position.
Hospice Aide (Former Employee) – Moline, IL – November 12, 2018
Good place when i first started. But management and turnover is very high and it became a very stressful place to be. They are always looking for someone to get in trouble. Life, school, and anything else that may be going on in your life is none of their concern and they make it very clear.
Hospice Chaplain (PRN) (Former Employee) – Carnegie, PA – November 8, 2018
I enjoyed the work and was allowed to manage my own schedule with minimal interference from management. Unfortunately our office was faced with managerial challenges as census declined and directors changed. Staff's spiritual needs were well-recognized and a welcome part of my responsibilities as their only chaplain.
typical day- 5 patients. PT's only, you keep your own patients, and an excellent continuum of care. I Learned a great amount with the OASIS training every 2 weeks. Very supportive management, excellent EMR with real time apps. Highly recommended employer
Administrative Internship (Former Employee) – Fayetteville, GA – November 1, 2018
I did my internship at Hospice Compassus (Fayetteville, GA) and I loved it! The volunteer coordinator is awesome and sooo nice. Everyone was nice actually. I learned a lot and wish there was time for me learn much more !!!
Social Worker (Former Employee) – Saginaw, MI – October 31, 2018
Horrible company. Do not work there. There is no job security. Management is cut-throat. You never know how many hours you will be able to work from one week to the next. Overturn is terrible. They lie to people in order to hire them.
