Working with clients is very rewarding. Pay and benefits are low.
From a broad perspective the company puts forth positive sounding slogans. But on a daily basis the local office fails to make individual employees feel important. Pay is low, benefits only fair. Office staff like to pull power plays over field staff.
Support from management
I don't feel I can talk openly with my supervisor.
Conflict between staff is largely ignored.
Freedom to work independently
Work is independent as field staff work in the clients home. However, office staff make sure you know you are being monitored.
I had a client call in to leave a compliment for my care and when the office staff gave me the recognition she let slip it had been sitting on her desk for 6 months.
Overall compensation for your work
I had to go into the office and complain to get a pay raise. Then I found out staff who is new with the company, with lower credentials and much fewer tasks to do is being paid more.
When office staff attempt to fill open shifts they have no regard for how many hours you have worked in a day or week.
I work with a client that requires a lot of skilled care so I find it challenging and satisfying.
Suggestions for improvement
- The move to electronic charting should have been more comprehensive. There should not be any more paper charting in the home. This is 2019!There should be something to make the field employees feel appreciated regularly. There are quite a bit of rewards offered to staff in the office. Bring it to us, don't make us compete for rewards or have to chase it down in the office.
What I like about the company
I have had 2 long term clients with the company. Both have been very rewarding experiences. I feel I really make a difference in my clients life.
What I dislike about the company
It would be nice to be able to speak openly to a supervisor about staff issues in a clients home.It would also be nice to get competitive wage. It would be helpful to staff if it was recognized that even though they were hired on as part time they have steadily worked full time hours but have been denied the anility to accrue sick time and any other full time benefits.
The following benefits were offered to me
