    Pros

    Select is a very well-run company with a strong commitment to quality and operational performance. They have excellent HR leadership at the corporate level and provide extensive training for leadership in talent selection and development.

    Cons

    The corporate oversight can sometimes be a bit overwhelming and does not allow for enough autonomy at the facility level. Senior leadership needs to better utilize the expertise of the local leadership and their knowledge of the local market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider allowing more decision making at the local level and hold leaders accountable for the results.

    Pros

    Great pay-scale and bonus package. One can grow within the company. Select medical offers its own CE programs which is cheaper than outside programs. One can be autonomous running the clinic. Good team members. I had a great supervisor and I enjoyed working with the company.

    Cons

    Sometimes it is stressful to show profits all throughout the year. Less in-person meetings with the team members. But overall great company to work with for long-term basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should give more incentives and show appreciation to their employees in certain ways

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced. Lots of opportunity to learn and grow. Accepting of new ideas. Top leadership is stellar. Stable, well managed national org. Strong ties to community. Best coworkers I've even had pleasure to work with. Accessible leaders. Open door policy. Unique perks. Staff works their butts off to do theotherright thing for patients and each other. Feels like family. Love my job!

    Cons

    Sure you see this everywhere, pay could be better. Expect a lot, we give a lot and are loyal but pay is on low end for volume of work and expertise expected. Benefit options are great but annual increases wipe out meager annual raises and the other401k match is minimal. Staff growth also foes not match growth rate of the business. Run very lean already so when you add locations you should add staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at compensation issues. You are losing , and will continue to lose, great loyal hard working employees because the pay vs workload is low.
