Building a New System
Support Analyst (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 26, 2014
I loved working at The Shepherd Center. This was a brand new build of the system for Shepherd. Although there was a huge learning curve for the staff, they were very understanding and wonderful to work with. I love a challenge, and with all the custom assessments, this was a challenge. What fun!

Great place with leadership issues
Rehab Team (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAAugust 8, 2014
Pros: wonderful rehab programs, hospital staff work well together as a team, friendly place to work.
Cons: management, limited professional growth
Things really need to be shaken up in the middle management area. Most have been there for more than a decade and are stuck in the way that things have worked. Granted Shepherd Center has done some groundbreaking things in the area of TBI and SCI rehab but that does not mean there is no room for improvement. Management is often the cause of a lot of – more... tension in the work place due to inadequate communication skills with the staff. There is also an air of mistrust that causes a lot of perception problems and often forced resignation or termination of a staff member which increases the already high rate of staff turnover - it's a vicious cycle that upper management is hopefully taking note of in their assessment of the hospital's programs. Management should learn to value and trust the people they hired to do their job and to contribute new things to the organization as the old ways that have been perfected are learned. – less

A Fun workplace where we help people at the same time
Medical Assistant (PRN) (Current Employee), Atlanta, GaMarch 18, 2014
Working at the call center is different from working in thw clinic dealing with actual patients. You come in, log into your data system. For me, I'm either doing medications; where I call in prescriptions to various pharmacies. Or home health, where I send the doctor different paperwork about patient's lab results, reports, and/or wheelchair requests, – more... as well as therapy requests. – less

Shepherd Center is a Hospital for people with brain and spinal cord injuries. A typical day of work consists of displaying a high level of customer care. The atmosphere at the Shepherd Center is very friendly and up-beat, which allows your caregiving experience one to remember.

I'm in school for medical coding and billing and I saw this on indeed, but there is an exam on filing. Did you have to go through that and if so was it hard? I've seen how to file with the two digit #s, but we didn't go through it as much.

Community Work Incentives Coordinator (Current Employee), Atlanta, GAOctober 21, 2012
Pros: benefits and incentives.
Shepherd Center is an excellent non-profit organiztion to work for and all the employee through out the center are very professional and the hospitality is great. I have learned that everyone is treated fairly and kind. The Directors that I work for are the greatest they really care about their staff and if you have a family situation they are there – more... without micromanaging. My co-workers are the greatest, this is the first organization where there everyone is very supportive of each other and works as a team. The hardest part of the job is trying to serve the consumers and the want answers right now instead listening to what is actually being said. The most enjoyable part of the job is having patience. – less

This place is an enjoyable place to work. The staff is very friendly towards each other as well as patients. The hardest part of this job is talking to patients and listening to their story of how they wouldn't walk again.

Grant Research Specialist (Former Employee), Atlanta, GAMay 6, 2012
Worked 12 hours days. Supervisor hired incompetent friends for research positions. I learned how to do the work for 4 people. Hardest part of job was going to work and doing work and clocking back in when I returned home. The most enjoyable part was my lunch break.
