Server (Former Employee) – MJLSC – January 11, 2019
Arbitrary management, a lot of favoritism, subjective appraisals, lack of manager involvement when needed and tons of micromanagement can be yours at the lowest compensation around.
Top-heavy senior leadership that runs departments to the ground. Services advertised that are not offered. Nurses in some departments are expected to work 10-12 hours while being paid for 8 hours. The deductible for medical benefits for 1 person is $3000 this year; that may be common, but it's difficult when you're not clinical and making $15/hr. Also, if you're not clinical, there's some lateral movement but no advancement.
Pros: pretty campuses and the best PTO, gain 8 hours of PTO every pay period to start.
Pto, upward mobility in upper management
Arbitrary, subjective, favoritism, culture of blame, lack of transparency
Suncoast PACE - Health Information Technician (Former Employee) – Pinellas Park, FL – May 15, 2018
Empath Health/PACE was a very busy place working toward the betterment of patients/participants during the process of caring for their health until the time of passing away. My day was very busy, and at times stressful - the hardest part of the job - but keeping the participants' best interests in mind helped ease that stress. The culture was one of collaboration because of the sensitivity of the programs, the health and the eventual passing of the participants. Not only them, but for their families. I learned to become more empathetic to the needs of the participants and families, which carried over into my personal life.
CNA/HHA (Former Employee) – Pinellas Park, FL – January 10, 2018
Hospice is supposed to be about help and making a difference in people’s life but it’s not there. All about money to this organization. Hospice is not like it used to be. And the employees are missed treated by management and nobody cares.
RN (Former Employee) – Largo, FL – December 21, 2017
They lure you in with this work/life balance non-sense. The next thing you know its 11pm and you're still charting. Salaried position working 50 hours plus per week for meager salary and benefits. No wonder turn over is so high. Plenty of job security, though. Go figure.
LPN, Crisis Care Nurse (Current Employee) – Pinellas County, FL – October 18, 2016
I find working as a hospice nurse very rewarding, although it can be difficult at times I believe it is a necessary service. I've learned there are many different kinds of family dynamics and there really isn't any right or wrong. The most enjoyable part of the job is engaging family members in life reviews, the hardest, teaching them to let go.
