Pros: nice, helpful, caring people working in corporate office.
Cons: hire inexperienced managers that certainly don't care about patients
I was hired as a director of rehab for a new contract. I showed up at 8 am on Friday, the first day of the contract. The lady that was supposed to train us (the majority of the staff was new) did not show up until noon, because her plane didn't land until 10:30!! We had NOTHING... No info on patients, no computers...nada. But of course had to treat patients. She was there a total of 1 full day. To her credit, she was great in the small amount of time she was given. We all had to learn a new system (which is AWFUL) So we essentially had to train ourselves. I was a completely new director and had NO training. My regional was not available when I needed him. Even when he was, he was completely unapproachable. When I asked him questions he was sarcastic and rude. It got worse for me after I expressed my feelings about my manager to his boss. He made me break down several times. It was the worst experience of my life. NO TRAINING, NO SUPPORT, ABUSIVE DIRECTOR. It was a humiliating experience. They throw people in positions and it's sink or swim. No in between. Most of the people in higher positions have no experience, which is ok if they have a supportive manager. Just beware because things are NOT as they seem!!
My offer letter said hourly, but then they changed it to salary once working. I was working 50 hrs/week easily. Insane productivity. (Asst 95%, evaluators 90%). It was tough to maintain my ethics... But I did.
