    This company used to be a great company to work for - now they are so big all they care about is the all mighty stockholders. Forget about the patients that they are supposed to care for. This company has grown so fast that they have put anyone and everyone into positions that they have no business being in and they don't train them so in a nut shell...RUN!

    I interviewed with this company and what a mess!! Very unprofessional, from the recruiter (in house) to the management.

    Amazing. You saw what a mess it was just from an interview. You should try to work for them. Worst place I have ever seen!

    Feedback?? What can you say about a company that has grown so much and looks so glamourous to work for??? I believe the way they treat patients and employees will be their downfall. They just don't care. It is MONEY MONEY and oh yeah more MONEY. Physicians should stop sending referrals and patients should asked to be discharged and find another home health agency that cares about them. If I had stock I would sell fast. The Wal-Mart of home health companies is sinking fast.

    Crazy managers, micro management hell! If you want to be tracked and possibly even followed, this is your company. This co has so many unexp. managers that they listen to every drop of company gossip and has even terminated people because of eager beavers that kiss ass and have thier eye on the top seat of the corp ladder. I would not let my worst enemy work here...well maybe I would let my worst enemy but def. not my friends.

    The man who started this company is a wonderful (very RICH) man. He has incredible passion for caring for the elderly but that is where it stops. His vision is not carried out throughout the organization. I have had companies that work with this home health co ask me what is going on. The corporate office does not have a clue what is going on out in the field. Communication does not exist. They have great ideas but it never gets past management. It is really sad. This was a top notch, best job ever. Now...just waiting on verification on another opportunity then I am gone. Thank God!

    This company SUCKS! Anyone interviewing or working for this company should run the other way! It is so bad that even the public is seeing it but, oh, don't let the all mighty stockholders hear about it. The left hand doesn't have a clue what the right hand is doing and they have promoted people into management positions that have no right to be in those positions. They want to micro manage the hell out of you now. Report this, document this and now they even have cell phones with GPS that will track where you are, how long you stay etc. It's bullshit!

    I can't believe how micor managed it seems. What are the hours they expect you to be in the field?
    What is the base? total compensation?
    Do you have a large expense account?
    How big are the territories?
    Thank you in advance for serious replies.

    1. Depending on what division, and the territory you work.....you can forget about office days, planning days, report days....FORGET ABOUT IT. They want you in the field ever waking hour. I truly understand that your job is to be in front of referral sources, but you also should be prepared, organized, etc. and with the reports and meetings in the office there seems to be no wiggle room.

    2. 50k-65k base is typical. The bonus just changed but I think an additional 20k is possible.

    3. You can typically spend $400 annually per doctor.

    4. I consider the territories fairly small, like a 50 mile radius of your base office.

    I am looking into switching to Home Health sales, if this company is so bad why do you stay? I wonder if it is worth it to continue to interview here? If you were with another Home Health place, how would you sell over Amedisys services? Any advice?

    Interviews are taking place in my area....how many calls per day are required; do you get a car allowance; cell allowance; laptop; mileage reimbursement; how are benefits -- vacation, holidays (number of), health benefits, 401 K plan, training - how long and where, etc. Why would physicians use Amedisys over any other company?? Thanks for response.
