Very poor communication from management, you never know what your daily hours will consist of, they will pile on the overtime without even asking, pay is ok, but not for the amount of work gets pushed on you. All my coworkers were feeling burnt out and didn't know if this was a Normal feeling because they were new grads. Facilities are nice and patients are great. Nice equipment in my case and brand new rehab gym. But the cons out weighed the pros. Had to get out of there.
Run as fast as you can away from this potential employer!!
Physical Therapist (Former Employee) – Maryland – January 8, 2016
Beginning with 1st level management, the parent-child relationship, and even bullying style communications, was my experience.
There is absolutely no professional growth opportunities, since little professionalism is modeled at least with on-site manager and regional manager, and no reimbursed out of company Cont. Ed. opportunities provided.
Each day is described as a frustrating grind - given extra full caseloads with few viable resources (e.g. space, equipment, help, etc) to work with.
Most all patients on Medicare A are RUG'd at levels too high for true benefit.
The advanced skills of most qualified therapists go underutilized on a regular basis given the very ill patients with many chronic diagnoses.
Job satisfaction/gratification -- Poor
Peer-Level Colleagues were great people
Very poor job satisfaction due to global issues about employer/facility
Great Place- to get Burnt-Out, Discouraged, and Thrown Under the Bus
SLP (Former Employee) – PA – July 15, 2015
Management does not listen to therapists in any way, shape, or form, even though management was an ASSISTANT. Therapists routinely threatened and ordered to take on patients that do not qualify for skilled services, or treat patients longer than warranted, in order to meet RUG levels and create maximum Medicare reimbursement. Higher ups have the typical "all is wonderful, we love our company" attitude, while being treated to conferences, trainings, free food, etc. However, staff actually "on the ground" and doing the real work is treated worse than slaves. Rare holidays off, constant guilt trips if a paid day off is requested (unless you are a manager or chummy with one), requirement to find your own coverage for PTO, super high productivity requirements- 85% for therapists. Productivity standards mean that point of service documentation is necessary, which takes away from patient care. Constant running around all day, every day, trying to get 10-12 patients in without spending any time walking between rooms, tracking down absent or unavailable patients, or talking with nursing and other staff about patients in order to determine best POC. No budget at all for therapy materials, not even standardized tests that are required by Medicare in order to bill certain CPT codes. Management that will throw the employee under the bus every time in order to save their own skin.
Absolutely no way to provide the best possible service to the patients. Avoid this company at all costs!
Therapist (Current Employee) – PA – January 29, 2015
This company is family owned and operated. They are very involved. Productivity is not over 90%. The regional managers and vice president of operations are great. They are very caring and family oriented. Very thorough and make sure you get any education you need. Very approachable. Team oriented and they do care about the employee, the patients and everyone they work with. I recommend this company and I have been working as a therapist and a manger for many years, so I know a good company when I see one. I enjoy every day as I know I have the support of the company I work for.
site manager (Former Employee) – alexandria – June 30, 2014
one star only coz there is no option for no stars typical day doesnt exist coz you are always thrown under the bus in unforeseen circumstances, coworkers that suck up to the family (owners) survive inspite of being ridiculously stupid and hard working ones are never appreciated and not treated well at all, dont deserve loyalty, there is a reason why they are always looking for staff, turnaround has to be seen to be believed
cant think of any except loved the clientele
lies, politics, punitive, vindictive, inexperienced top management with no people skills
site manager (Former Employee) – washington, dc – January 10, 2014
If you want to be thrown into a raging churning sea of man eaters-…by all means jump in the shark infested waters. They will give you no support other than jumping down your throat. Unprofessional from the top down.
I wouldn't suggest anyone to work for this company. They never listen to there therapist and they will pull your position right out from under your feet. You work like a dog and there is no appreciation. They make you travel all over the place and could care less about how many people you treat in a day productivity is way to high at 95 percent. No thanks. Not for me
treating therapist (Current Employee) – VA – October 9, 2012
The pay is low, the hours are long, two holidays are given throughout the year, must find your own coverage prior to taking a day off. Turnaround is extremely high because no one wants to come back or stay with the company. No oppurtunities for growth and management does not take into account the opinions of the treating therapists.
On the positive side the patients are nice and so are the facilities.
nice staff and patients and resonable ceu reimbursement
no 401k benefits until after a year, find your own coverage, low pay, long hours
A company that does not think about their therapist for one minute !
Therapist have to find own coverage for day off and then may not get approved. NO work life balance. I know of 2 therapist denied days off secondary to requesting them 28 days in advance with coverage instead of 30 days in advance.
Program managers that have poor people skills and not open to therapist feedback, about patents levels of skills.
The program manager can work all day and never talk to therapist.
ONLY company I have ever known to make ALL employes work ALL holidays, unless you get approved for a day off.
Job Work/Life Balance
good pay, terrible benefits, little equipment
PT (Current Employee) – Maryland – April 11, 2012
They will offer good pay, however they only offer 2 holidays per year. Even than you are required to come in and make up billing hours on another of your off days. Management institutes policies without advance notice-ie raising productivity levels to 95% for PTA's.The equipment for the patients is few and far between-one facility has only one bike.Some facilities are so small that some treatment must be done in the hall.Management is reactive-not proactive
