Laid back and hands-off corporate environment

Systems Engineer (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I worked at RehabCare full-time for more than 3 years

ProsI enjoyed the relatively non-invasive management style in the corporate office. There was expectation of getting tasks completed on time but no one sitting on your back to do them.

ConsWhile having freedom was good, lack of communication and project structure left me unprepared for my next role in a company that was much faster-paced.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdopt and implement agile or waterfall project management structures.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It a good company

Program Director (Current Employee)
Houston, TX

I have been working at RehabCare full-time for more than 3 years

ProsThey are more then competitive. Good people who are realistic

ConsRecent health insurance decreases. Itouch POC is horrible. I wish they would scrap their computer system. To much paperwork with a bad try at paperless

Advice to Senior ManagementThe business is realistic. People need to realize the atmosphere. People complain about the company but they are above average. The other companies I've worked for ate not as good as rehabcare. Productivity is realistic and anyone who says otherwise is mot attuned to the industry. They want to see people and not even earn their salary. The company, besides the paperwork, is good. Beware of Reliant rehab

I have been happily employed with RehabCare (née PeopleFirst) for 4.5 years.

Speech Language Pathologist (Current Employee)
Denver, CO

I have been working at RehabCare full-time for more than 5 years

ProsMy team is awesome and both Area Rehab Directors for whom I worked have been both responsive and effective leaders.

ConsMy company has failed to renew the leases Ann upwards of 70 buildings throughout the US and many of us will be no longer employed by our parent company -- Kindred Healthcare. This is a huge disappointment and a seeming lack of return on the loyalty I gave the company.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

One on one rehab care in longterm snf, subacute rehab.

Certified Physical Therapist Assistant (Current Employee)
Lakewood, WA

I have been working at RehabCare full-time for more than 10 years

ProsOne on one patient care. I enjoy working with the patients and help them return function and return home again. Variety of patient diagnoses to work with, Orthopedic, CVA, COPD, Pneumonia, general surgery, general weakness. Diverse cultural staff. Team approach.

ConsProductivity standards are 90 % for Physical Therapist Assistants, 85% for PT's. If it is too slow, must go home early.

Advice to Senior ManagementCompliment staff on what they do well.

It's difficult to assess such a large company. Experiences working for RehabCare may depend on the specific facility.

Occupational Therapist (Current Employee)
Topsham, ME

I have been working at RehabCare

ProsGood benefits and salary and flex time, providing for a balanced lifestyle.

ConsBeing such a large corporation, sometimes you feel like dollars come before people.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink more about client centered practice, not just about how many billable minutes are needed to earn a profit. This is obviously a challenge given that making money is how the company stays out of the red and offers the salary and pay it does to employees. Unfortunately, I do not always see a lot of focus on how to plan for this while taking into consideration what is best for clients.

Decent company to work for.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at RehabCare

ProsRehabCare offers flexible scheduling, which is great for parents who need time off for sick children and school holidays etc.

ConsTo much emphasis on put on productivity as opposed to patient care. Management staff not always available for communication, and it seems some employees are allowed to do what ever they want, while others really work hard to do their jobs professionally.
