Poor management
Hospice Aide (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJune 19, 2018
I was hired full-time. However, when the census dropped, they reduced it to part-time. I was promised office/clerical work if the census became too low for full time hours out in the field, but that Supervisor resigned and that promise didn't stand up to the management out of Oklahoma.

Poor Management
HOSPICE LIAISON (Former Employee) –  Long Island, NYJune 3, 2018
Average work day consisted of 8:30- 5:30 with no time for scheduled breaks. Most of the time, work was taken home in order to try and catch up. Work load was overwhelming with no help provided. Management was poor and they did not listen to the recommendations of their staff. High turnover rate.
Pros
none
Cons

Very caring company
Staffing Assistant (Former Employee) –  Auburndale, FLMay 30, 2018
Very productive job and it will promote within before looking outside. The management allowed you to be more flexible. I really enjoyed working with the staff. A typical day at work was staffing out the nurses, answering the phones and sometimes doing on-call. The hardest part of the job was calling the families to notify them if we did not have any coverage for their loved one. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing that I am helping a patient and their family. I learned how to manage my time and to work well with others.

Poor Patient Care and No Concern for Staff
Nurse (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXMay 22, 2018
I thought this company would be a great place to work at since they had many other locations. I assumed they had a successful business model. They do not at least in the San Antonio office! Patients are not seen as frequently as they should be. The office is a mess and completely unorganized. Management is horrible and could care less about its staff. There is no proper training or orientation for new staff either. Very high staff turn over and problems staffing patients which leads to poor patient care.

Not happy with new director
Office Manager/Payroll (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXApril 23, 2018
New director came with a plan to fire everyone and wanted to place people who didn’t even want to work under her. To much gossip. Left because it was to hostile especially when you feel used knowing they are going to let you go anyway.
Pros
Owner is down to earth
Cons
New director is a huge con

Administrator/Alternate Supervising Nurse (Former Employee) –  Houston, TXFebruary 13, 2018
Good Shepherd Hospice cares about its employees and patients they serve. They are small, so each employee is responsible for several different jobs/duties.

September 2017 - present - RN Case Manager (Current Employee) –  Tulsa, OKJanuary 28, 2018
Hospice work is very personally rewarding work. Great team of people helping the patients and their families. There is a great deal of turnover, which can be difficult.

Great co-workers.
Patient Family Counselor (Former Employee) –  Sebring, FLJanuary 24, 2018
Working Good Shepherd Hospice was a great learning experience. I was unable to cope with working there after two of my child clients died. It was easier to work with the elder patients.
Pros
Supervision for licensure.
Cons
Low Pay

LMSW (Former Employee) –  San Antonio, TXJanuary 13, 2018
Cut throat, fake, and will watch you drown. Management is only out for themselves. High risk place to work. When you have seen 1 hospice, you have seen them all. Field nurses, please spread your wings somewhere else! San Antonio location is a joke and so is their ED.

Wonderful family oriented job
Manager (Former Employee) –  Grove, OKNovember 15, 2017
Wonderful place to work, I just could not advance in my office. Most family oriented place I have ever worked. If I had been able to advance there I would still be there.

Fair
Hospice Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Oklahoma City, OKNovember 12, 2017
This is a large company with some very good field staff. However, management is in my opinion not educated on state regulations and is only out to make money. This being said, there are probably sites that have a better managment team that are more knowledgeable about federally mandated rules and regulations on hospice care and benefits.
Pros
great field staff and on call staff, not too much on call for field staff
Cons
No support from management, poor management

Marketing consultant (Former Employee) –  Grove, OKOctober 30, 2017
The new manager was not caring to the needs of the staff, she was not fair to staff and was hateful to staff! On the other side the lady that was in charge before was kind and caring

Ethical company
Hospice Consultant (Current Employee) –  Dallas, TXOctober 13, 2017
Unrealistic expectations but overall good company; ethical and organized but turnover rate is high. Nursing and clinical management is excellent, sales department needs some overhauling.

Great patients and coworkers
Registered Nurse (Former Employee) –  Tulsa, OKOctober 1, 2017
Hardest part of the job is balancing work and home life, Hospice work is very time consuming. The company takes pride in their care of patients but the budget allowed for things patients need is not enough. Some of the newer management that were starting when I was getting ready to resign were not always truthful to the employees

poor patient ratios
RN Care Coordinator (Former Employee) –  FloridaSeptember 28, 2017
A move to decrease regular staff and increase PRN staff cause Case Managers to have up to 30 patients to keep track of and have PRN staff conduct visits. Continuity of care went out the window.

excellent place to grow professionally
Licensed Practical Nurse/Field nurse (Former Employee) –  Farmingdale, NYSeptember 27, 2017
Great place to work if you're starting out and wish to advance your career, very generous fringe benefits, paid time off, medical benefits, education stipend however they are very top heavy and penny wise while being dollar foolish. Need to spend more of their assets on training in a more organized and efficient manner, pay better to field staff.
Pros
long term benefits
Cons
disorganized
