Productive yet fun, relaxing setting
Student Physical Therapist (Former Employee) –  Marlton, NJAugust 31, 2017
Although temporary, this was one of the best places I worked at. Some positions you run out of the door because you've worked 3min over your 8 hour day.....at Kessler I found myself not even aware I was on hour 10 of a 5 day work week. It's long hours, but you find a good balance in your work day and appreciate everyone around you.

Not a good place to work
RN Staff Nurse (Former Employee) –  Marlton, NJAugust 19, 2017
Management what management? The CNA's work in a click, and not all of them treat the patients with the respect they deserve. The CNA's do not work as a team with the nurses. The nurses do not all work as a team either or have the skills they should have after graduating nursing school. Patients beware when choosing a rehabilitation facility, and always have your family present.

Rehabilitation Aide (Former Employee) –  Saddle Brook, NJJuly 17, 2017
I've learned a lot working at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation especially when it comes for caring for the patient on a personal level. The most enjoyable part of the is seeing the smile once they get to leave once they have been through the rehab process.

executive assistant to ceo (Temporary placement) (Former Employee) –  West Orange, NJJune 16, 2017
Kessler Institute is a top-rated institution. I was only there temporarily and did not get a lot of exposure to the broader rehabilitation services. I was in the office of the CEO and other top management. Everything was conducted professionally. Compensation was inadequate, however as was the long work hours.
Pros
Professional staff
Cons
Compensation inadequate

Not a good place to work
Rehabilitation Aide (Former Employee) –  West Orange, NJJune 15, 2017
Kessler Institute in West Orange NJ ,treat their employees like a nobody. There's no teamwork, supervisors and Management are for themselves. People get fired here for foolishness and Management covers up the truth. Theirs so much corruption at this Hospital I really don't know how they became one of the Worlds Best Hospital. Eyewitness news really need to be undercover in this hospital. I truly feel sorry for the patients there.
Pros
Nice pictures on the walls
Cons
They will hire anybody

PT (Current Employee) –  Marlton, NJJune 11, 2017
Good coworkers but the raises and the salary are low. Management is not the greatest. Could use more skilled managers who know how to run a department.

REHABILITATION TECHNICIAN (SECONDARY ROLE) (Current Employee) –  West Orange, NJMay 29, 2017
Upper management is terrified of corporate and never appreciates any of the work or long hours you put in for them.

There isn't much room for career growth. The salary doesn't really satisfy the demand of work. The hours are long.

Terrible Place to Work
Rehabilitation Assistant (Former Employee) –  West Orange, NJMay 27, 2017
Horrible Place to work and after reading these reviews more than clear HR is desperate enough to write their own reviews or the few that did review are the favored group. The patients are awesome if you treat them right but complaints that come from them often is that the place is dirty, the equipment is outdated and often noisy, the linens have stains and holes, they are charged for services and items they didn't receive, the list goes on. For staffing if you are Full Time they will under staff in hopes that you can come in and do the extra work in double shifts or that you will give up your days off to fill in where they clearly should've staffed. If you are Per Diem good luck getting days to work whether you put in a schedule or not you will always come last to a Full Timers double or a Agency Sitter you will even be cancelled after already arriving to work so that they can stay or come in so you have been warned. The favored few Per Diems will rack up all the hours available doing doubles every single day if allowed and when you look for a few hours there are none. The Management is a piece of work doesn't matter how hard you work they are never watching unless you agree to be their pet and fetch things for them and go above and beyond to please them or you have refused to do what I just mentioned making you a target to which case hold on for the repeated calls from HR for everything from breathing to existing. HR will always side with them no matter what you do or what proof you have they kind of have a thing for firing people left and right especially with their newly  more... acquired HR Rep. For the sake of not writing a book I will end it here but if you want to keep your licenses and certifications steer clear go somewhere that takes their line of work and your careers seriously.  less

Some of the Coworkers are awesome, learn a few things from senior staff.

Fieldwork Level II (Former Employee) –  West Orange, NJMay 2, 2017
Kessler is a great place to learn a lot in a short period of time, The work life balance is not great as there is not allotted time to do notes within the paid workday. You will often be completing notes and attending meetings during your free time.
