Nothing but another face.

ProsOpen bar at company functions. Management doesn't know what is happening most of the time so you never hear from them. The people actually doing the work are great to work with and can be trusted.

ConsExecutives don't care about employees. Shady business practices are common. Employees in the clinics are treated like slaves. The top level execs will do anything to make the stock go higher even when the company isn't moving in the right direction. Bonus structure is actual stock shares but most of the employees are lied to and told a bonus program doesn't exist.

Advice to Senior ManagementManagement is aware of the issues and they don't plan to change.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Message from a former employee

Therapist (Former Employee)
Houston, TX

I worked at U.S. Physical Therapy full-time for more than 3 years

ProsA good place to gain experience.
The company is on all the major insurance contracts to be an in-network provider. This is helpful to market to potential referral sources.

ConsIt makes little to no sense to partner with a company that is going to take the majority of the profits (and that makes you sign a 10 mile noncompete). Opening up your own practice is not as hard as you think nor does it take that much of a capital investment. There are plenty of books and courses on how you can go solo. Additionally, there are companies that will help you get insurance credentialed that will take a lot of the headaches to become an in-network provider.

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not let the numbers dictate the way that you want your therapists to treat. Profits will come from superior service and patient outcomes.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ProsPretty good job security. Pleasant working conditions.

ConsPoor wages for office help. Yearly raises iffy despite profitability. Bad retirement plan.

Advice to Senior ManagementLess high paying executive jobs. Focus on your clinics, they bring in the paychecks.

Learned that you can't trust corporate healthcare.

Partner/Director (Former Employee)

I worked at U.S. Physical Therapy

ProsGood business experience. Fairly good benefits. Help in marketing your practice. Good value to trips to Houston for experience with other partners. As far as corporate models to work for - Concentra, Physio, Hospital based, it is one of the better ones if you can deal with a non-compete and dont wont to go out on your own.

ConsThey don't honor there own contracts. You really have no say in your clinic, despite what they may tell you. They will compete against you locally b/c their focus is on profits and ease of management. Takes too long for a decision to be made. I used to joke that if I called them on Friday to tell them my clinic was on fire, they would wait until Friday after they have their corporate meetings to call to tell me to call they fire department.

Advice to Senior ManagementDon't let your corporate mantra ruin it for your local clinics who thrive on their own reputations. You need to base your partners more, b/c after a few years you wind up having the same risk as you would owning your own clinic with not as much of a reward. Remember news travels fast in the PT world.
