    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy (Illinois) full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I've been with ATI for 2 years now, I've worked for St. Francis and Accelerated Rehab prior to my time here. ATI Is BY FAR superior in work environment, company culture, opportunities to advance, and competitive pay. Their clinical leadership program really helps train you for taking on the tasks as a Clinic Director. Accelerated puts unprepared people in these positions and it's a breath of fresh air to have people that are awesome therapists and know how to manage. Marketing personnel are awesome at getting patient referrals in the door, thus alleviating this from our plate.

    Cons

    Pay schedule is weird, not every 2 weeks, but twice a month. Apparently some of the old guard from Advance PT still linger and that hurts overall growth. "We did this when we were Advance!" Well, if Advance was that good, then they wouldn't have been sold! Get over it and move on!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dylan is great and Mark is very good locally here. Continue to do things to make the culture and teams close! We need to recruit more experienced talent! There are folks at the hospitals, home health, and Accelerated that are ready to leave for the right opportunity.

    Pros

    direct supervisor is good at saying thank you//recognizing hard work and extra effort.

    Cons

    Little to no upward mobility within the company. Pay-raises are almost non-existent, and laughable when finally given out. bonuses given to therapists, but no opportunities for quarterly bonuses for anyone else (techs, drivers, front-office). Everything is numbers driven, and quality care starts to diminish. PTO requests are often denied due to no-coverage/coverage issues

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    the micro-managing feels as though you dont trust the people you hired to do the job properly.

    I worked at ATI Physical Therapy (Illinois) full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    A lot of great people, that truly care work in these clinics. My direct supervisor was great at empowering people and treating those who worked for him like friends. He was also great at letting staff know when it was time to do business as well.

    Cons

    Little to now Chance to move upward within the company. Favoritism almost hits you at the front door. Corporate started to play the numbers game with patient appointments instead of being result driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't always trust employees that say yes to you the most... saying yes can sometimes mean they aren't strong enough to honestly tell you when you are wrong. Empower those who show an ability to lead, they're are a lot of therapist there that are strong leaders who are punished for not saying yes for the sake of saying yes to get ahead.

    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy (Illinois) part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    state of the art equipment ,usually dusty never saw anyone clean it...not my job attitude abounds

    Cons

    Micro managed, drivers and front office workers undervalued, poor pay, 1 % raise last yr, none the year before.Upper management will arbitrarily shave your paycheck with microscopic time management,no overtime allowed,cutting hours so not to pay benefits to part timers 30 minute lunches . Drivers need to request time off for vacations 6 months in advance vs. the employee handbook 45 days.Perks to clinicians and doctors never to front office /rehab.techs/drivers.Immature corporate managers.They wait for you to make a mistake,then pounce on you like a hawk to a field mouse,instead of rewarding the 98% of good work done.IE scanning,filing patient records,insurance coverages,codes,appointment changes, drivers schedules, routes,GPS tracking in cars,speeding ,not allowed to hit the ATM or coffee shops,STAY AWAY FROM THIS TOXIC COMPANY.,almighty dollar$ is their true motto and greatest value

    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy (Illinois) full-time

    Pros

    Compensation and benefits are decent, especially for those employees who have previously worked for companies that were taken over by ATI and had contracts in place (this company expands by taking over smaller physical therapy companies). New hires may not earn as much, especially in office positions. Good people in upper management. Company has a charitable foundation. Company is currently privately held but will soon be going public (could be pro or con-they are keeping costs down thru various means to appear quite viable)

    Cons

    Company motto is not in line with what is actually practiced by upper and middle management. Middle management (human resources, office manager) run roughshod over clinics with little respect for employees. Company handbook is only available online, nearly impossible to access and not possible to print or save. Hourly employees are very closely monitored for any hours worked over or under, the company will not pay a single minute of overtime yet does not offer a viable solution to relieve the employee of his/her patient responsibilities, thereby putting the employee in the position of sacrificing patient care or working longer than scheduled and being punished for it. There is a general feeling of mistrust and division due to the various positions being treated differently by management rather than treating and rewarding everyone in the clinic in the same way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than making all employees memorize a mission statement and then making it impossible to implement due to understaffing the clinics and causing therapists to walk away from patients to answer phones and attend to walk ins, actually staff the clinics with at least one office personnel during all open clinic hours. Also, more accurate insurance verification would be helpful, there are an inordinate amount of complaints from patients after receiving their bills that they are not what was quoted them and that ATI charges much more than other clinics for the same service.

    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy (Illinois) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, friendly working environment, well organized. The company culture is excellent and upper management seems to be very involved despite recent rapid growth. Resources available to clinical staff is remarkable, EMR, benefits, reasonable patient volume, pay.

    Cons

    Large infrastructure with many layers of centralized management processes creates very challenging communication/inefficiency; redundancy in workload/reporting for managers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve communication between departments to decrease redundancy in workload for managers. Continue to support clinical staff. The strength of the company relies heavily on the quality of the clinical staff and controls placed on "good" clinical staff limits their effectiveness at times.

    Pros

    The people were nice and I enjoyed working with my co-workers. The patients at this clinic are also great.

    Cons

    ATI is a stepping stone to a better, higher-paying PT job. If you're fresh out of school and need to get experience, ATI is a good place for that. As for compensation, it is significantly lower than what you can find elsewhere. ATI believes in cheap, inexperienced labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put patient care above your bottom line and offer competitive salaries

    Pros

    At its core, ATI has a really solid mission and I've been impressed with how passionate the staff is about truly helping patients in the very best way possible. There is a great sense of teamwork at ATI. People work really hard, but infuse just the right amount of fun into work. The company is growing so there are many opportunities for career advancement.

    Cons

    Very few cons for someone who enjoys a busy, high energy work environment. Be prepared to really give it your all everyday because there is no downtime.
