The company is a great company to work for. The management staff care about the staff and attempt to compensate fairly. While compensation could have been better as with other companies, it was somewhat fair based upon market.

I work with elderly patients. I maintain current level of care to each patient. I have fun and enjoy working with this population. My co workers are great to work with because of their dedication and all working together as a team. The most difficult times I have come across has been that the patient gives up or they get easily fustrated and do not want to be bothered. I learn something new everyday from my patients or my coworkers.
time for writing or putting input about patients progress in the job
at times not enough time to put info of patient and get told that it needs to be put in that day
The management are not leaders, and they don't know how to treat their employers. There is no room for growth and they didn't have the proper training to show people how to do their job. The company is behind on paying bills, but they keep buying things. It's the worse company that I have every worked for.

My review is that they were wonderful to work with. I only had one issue and it was with setting housing prior to my arrival, somehow fell through the cracks. It came together the whole assignment in hours. I worked at the VA on Fort Bliss, TX. I was hired for Flu shot season for VETS, but within one day, was given a new assignment doing chart review for Colon Cancer Screening. Met some wonderful people.
travel, meet new people, interesting work
issues with housing, suit case lost by airline, hassles for security clearance on base
Cirrus Medical was my first "crack" at traveling/contracting as an SLP. My first recruiter was FABULOUS! She was caring, she listened and she seemed invested in making me feel secure in my position and answered all of my questions. Unfortunately, she took another job and I was passed along to another recruiter. Although the recruiter I was assigned to was pleasant and wanted to help me find another assignment, I could tell by some of the verbiage she used "...Your on my list so I'm gonna help you..." that I was just another number. The job market in the area I am able to work in is very slow right now. Needless to say, I STILL do not have an assignment, which means NO INCOME. I received a letter last week from COBRA stating I qualified for insurance as I was "involuntarily terminated," approximately 2.5 weeks from when my assignment ended. Wow. HR's explanation of the letter further summarizes what I perceive my worth is to this company: I'm just another #. And since they haven't been successful in finding me another assignment based on my location requirements, they didn't "hold" my insurance benefits. Presently, I have no income, no insurance and a rather yucky aftertaste of my experience with Cirrus Medical. Needless to say, I'm actively searching and in desperate need of another job.

First and last contract ever with Citrus, they piece rate your contract to other divisions so you have multiple people calling you! Pay was extremely low and you receive your deposits (if any )30-60 days after your assignment ends, I do not recommend them!!! There are too many BETTER travel agencies out there!
too many people involved, a clustermess, insurance stunk - poor coverage
Occupational Therapist (Current Employee) – Los Angeles – December 15, 2012
I signed a contract with this co. promising to get me a position on the opposite side of the country so I subleased my apartment, put in a deposit for a place at the new location all to find out that the co. that they had contracted me too for 14 weeks could now not afford me. My whole life has changed since then and they could not find me anything comprable to make up for this utter fail on their part. Then they would not compensate for my deposits or my licensure in the state they promised me. Will never work for this co. again..Epic fail!!
I understand the new version of Cirrus is outstanding.
Recruiter (Former Employee) – Charlotte, NC – April 12, 2012
When I worked for Cirrus it was a mess. Management and communications between departments was horrible. Now there is new management and a new culture...even a new location. I'm certain that people working there will thrive under the changes made.
good health benefits
the former cirrus medical needed to make changes, and they have.
