PTA, current employee (Current Employee), undisclosed location – May 8, 2013
Pros: flexible hours, work your own schdule
Cons: dishonest management, varied hours day to day, unethical practice
I decided to take aegis as my first job out of school and was told that it would be a FT job, however, I'm lucky to get 20 hours a week. That's not to mention that I spend roughly $300 a month just getting to and from work and at least 30 hours a month unpaid drive time. I honestly didn't know what I was getting myself into and expected at least honesty, – more... but I got the opposite. Management is also very unprofessional and a joke! New grads beware as when you get your first job offer it may seem to good to be true, guess what it is. I will be lucky if I make 50% of what I should make. – less
Good company working for previous District Manager
Progam Manager, Occupational Therapist (Current Employee), Florence and Niagara, Wisconsin – April 20, 2013
Reviewed minute management and documentation. Attended daily meetings with all staff management, met with therapy team to appoint treatment, staffed as needed including PT and SLP. Most difficult aspect is management of co-workers and getting them to see the big picture of ALL patients needs.
Horrible company .Stay away from Aegis Therapies if you have any place else to work.
PTA (Current Employee), Texas – April 12, 2013
Pros: competitive salary
Cons: no chance of upward mobility for therapist assistants, in spite of education or experience
Horrible company to work for. No compassion for its employees. The company places a strong separation between therapists and assistants. Licensed therapist assistants that have Bachelor's Degrees are treated like brainless morons and have no chance of upward mobility in the company. Limited job stability due to constant restructuring. Management in – more... this district is extremely disorganized and unstable. Multiple resignations among Area VP's over the past month. Computerized documentation system has excessive "glitches" and crashes at least 1-2 times monthly. . – less
master's level therapist (Current Employee), midwest – March 31, 2013
Pros: enough $$$ to pay my bills
Cons: low company ethics, crazy expectations, poor respect for employees
Unrealistic productivity expectations, strong scuttlebutt within the organization that it's going to get worse while they're currently increasing documentation requirements. PTO looks good on paper, but practically impossible to cash it in, even for a sick day. No holidays off, must make it up over the weekend. Lots of patients picked up for service – more... that are inappropriate, on caseload way too long. Lots of over-reporting minutes, way too much time of pt sitting around while therapist types on computer & bills time. Also lots of concurrent treatment and co-treatment that is not honestly billed--"Just put zero in the concurrent box." Otherwise, no way to meet productivity requirements. I've been formally disciplined for staying off the clock to complete documentation. Employees are put into a double bind. I'm just trying to hold on until find another position. Since these requirements are becoming all too common in the rehab setting, I may be looking to get out of the field. Thanks a LOT, Aegis. (And by the way, thanks a lot ASHA for sticking up for us... NOT!) Oh, and any high rankings are probably written by or commissioned by mgmt. – less
Beware of this company. You could lose your license
OT (Former Employee), OC, Ca – March 1, 2013
Cons: unethical, threatening environment form top down.
Be Aware that this company has the worst upper management and lower management. i gave my two weeks notice and when i felt that I was mistreated the moment that i gave my notice, and since i left before my two weeks, the regional called me and threatened to report me to the board of OT for job abandonment. Well guess what? California is at will employment – more... and besides i have two very strong family lawyers that knows how to deal with this unethical company. – less
Currently employed PT with little respect for Golden Living/Aegis Therapies! Typical high expectations with low incentives - aside from your own intrinsic value of providing excellent care to your Pt's - for quality of care. Superficially promotes "quality of care NOTION" as primary but within the confines of acceptable (i.e. unreasonable) productivity. – more... Frozen pay raises the last two years, slashing medical insurance for employees, unrealistic restrictions on paid time off, etc secondary to Golden living having to "analyze" difficult reimbursement climate. This so called "difficult" reimbursement climate did of course lead to 2.75 billion in revenue in 2011. All that being said, if you value working with patients hands on and providing direct, high quality of care that doesn't involve sitting in front of a laptop all day long, STAY away from Aegis! – less
Floor Supervisor (Former Employee), Port Saint Lucie, FL – January 31, 2013
Pros: good hours good pay
Cons: the company was shut down
Originally hired as a customer service representative handling up to 350 calls per shift. After four months I was promoted to Team Leader responsible for handling issues that the customer service representative was unable to handle. After one year I was promoted to Floor Supervisor responsible for overseeing the quality and timeliness of the work of – more... 300 customer service representatives. Lead I had to train the staff members on the computer, and set a strong role model example. And as a floor supervisor I had to monitor all calls help any and all employee’s on there work if they had any problems on the phone – less
Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (Former Employee), Tuscumbia, MO – January 28, 2013
Working with the clients can be fun and meaningful. Still there are times where productivity makes things difficult. This is a typical nursing home setting where things are not always set-up ideal for the Occupational Therapist.

Physical Therapist Assistant (Former Employee), Nebraska – January 13, 2013
Pros: good benefits, internal continuing education for employees
Cons: not fair or equal organization, average compensation
Facility I worked at, RPC that was hired last year very unprofessional, and attempts to create a hostle work environment by loud talking in therapy gym to patients and other staff. Was made aware from this RPC and other staff that there were 2 other therapists that resigned or left facility due to hostile treatment from her and other therapist(team – more... leader). Also no control of schedule, schedule is controlled by RPC and team leader (who happens to be her best friend). Both of them attempt to gang up behind therapists back to either start trouble or look for it. Can be a good company just depends who your DM or RPC is. Always felt that I had to watch my back when I came to work everyday and never felt that it was a positive work environment. – less
