Think twice
Nurse Case Manager (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INNovember 9, 2018
Don’t let them fool you. This company is about “doing the right thing” for themselves. Their case management model is flawed and nurses can not truly case manage their patients.
Cons
Disorganization, constant changes, poor gas reimbursement, no direct deposit

Excellent Place to Work!
Manager (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 18, 2018
Transitions is a rewarding place to work. The care Transitions provides is different than other hospice companies. I can personally attest for that as I had previous experience with a loved one that received hospice care from another provider. The philosophy the owner has in place is based on doing the right thing for each patient and their families. This comes from the top and is an expectation for each team member. I’ve worked for Transitions for several years and the experience changed me for the better. Everyone from the CEO to the volunteer staff have a warm disposition and will do anything to go the extra mile for a patient and their family. I highly recommend Transitions as an excellent place to work.
Pros
Great benefits, flexibility, compassionate team members, patient centered, open communication, advancement opportunities.

Great opportunity for refinement, personal/professional growth, and autonomy
Regional Hospice Coordinator (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis INSeptember 17, 2018
Transitions is not a place for an average employee seeking a ‘job’ to ‘pay’ the bills who needs micromanaged in order to be successful. Transitions is a company in which personal discipline and professional growth is a necessity. It will only be a good person/job fit if the employee is passionate and capable of embracing challenge, refinement, and autonomy. Many companies exist where one can punch the clock and be done with their day within 8 hours; leaving empty, frustrated, and searching for a ‘bigger purpose’. Transitions creates purpose! It is a place that demands personal conviction and a selflessness of always doing the right thing. It requires a special type of devotion and commitment to serve others. This company served as a launching pad to serve beyond myself and to see a ‘bigger picture’....to fully understand this world does not revolve around me, and that I can make a difference! This is not a company for the ‘faint of heart’, but rather a company for those who are seeking fulfillment, purpose, and significance.
Pros
Autonomy, purpose, professional advancement
Cons
Lots of change.

More than just a job
Healthcare Professional (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INSeptember 17, 2018
Transitions is a company full of passionate people all working towards an amazing mission. Hospice is hard work, but also one of the most rewarding. If you're looking for a job that's going to teach you about yourself and others, then this is the place for you. If you want a company that always puts patient needs first, then this is the place for you. The current team couldn't be more dedicated to each other and their patients. This is why there are cards and letters sent weekly from families who's lives have been changed by such compassionate caregivers!

Poor work environment
Jack of All Trades (Former Employee) –  Indianapolis, INJuly 22, 2018
I, personally, would not recommend Transitions as a place of employment. The employees are not valued, in my opinion. Leadership is poor and unorganized. The environment is chaotic. . Communication is poor. Employees are frequently upset and disgruntled. Significant changes are made frequently without thought about how they will impact the staff. These changes include changing an employee's role or work hours/days abruptly without considering the impact that this will have on the employee or the employee's family. Employees are not encouraged to grow in their professional roles, or to contribute their skills and knowledge for the betterment of the company. This company was set up with some of the most intelligent, knowledgeable and experienced hospice professionals in the Indianapolis area, but for that reason, those clinicians have been pushed out the door one by one. Their knowledge and experience is not needed, nor wanted. You don't need smart people when ultimately, you don't want their input. These employees could not be moved out of the way any faster.
In fact,with employee after employee submitting their resignation one right after the other, one would thing that the ownership/leadership would question what is going on. Nope! Nothing. It was as if this is actually what they intended to happen. Not one question or comment when resignations were being turned in. I would have at least expected something, maybe, "Hey, I am sorry to see you go", or "Is there anything we can do to change your mind?" Nothing was said...crickets...Another significant issue
  more... at Transitions is micromanagement. This significantly decreases job satisfaction. In fact, so much time is spent micromanaging everything that everyone is doing, that other very important things are being overlooked. Employees do not feel trusted because of this. Dictatorship is truly the leadership style. Some of the "leaders" that come from the Illinois branches seem to have ulterior motives. They lie, manipulate and thrive off of the drama. If an employee were to come to one of them with an idea, they would turn it around and make it as though it was their idea. It seems as though the goal is to make others appear incompetent and incapable, while at the same time they desire to make themselves look heroic in their efforts to "fix" all the issues. Ultimately, I feel that the people who do these types of things have a very low sense of self worth. They thrive off of the praise and recognition that they get from the ownership. The technology that staff are expected to use is way outdated and is in poor, used condition. Employees do not receive mileage, only a car allowance which generally isn't enough to cover the miles that they drive, gas and wear and tear on their vehicle. It's a sad state of affairs. Save yourself the headache, drama and heartache and do not become employed with Transitions.  less
