    Pros

    I loved being in on Saturday, had rehab
    Room to myself, pts felt more relaxed without the noise and often discussed their progress proudly or lack of due to medical set backs and vented their worries.
    I ran into a lot of other per idem displaces ST., OT all very professional and nice, learned from each one something different. Nursing staff very helpful, supportive easy to discuss cases with, open to suggestions.

    Cons

    Sometimes had to travel to other facilities that I really didn't mind unless they forgot the key to the rehab room or to leave me the pass codes to access the floors.
    Big con is that there is no automatic raises, you have to request.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget the week end people, offer to tape the i services they hold during the week, leave staff meetings notes or the week end people know nothing of what's going on. Also, please offer annual raises, even cost of living would be great.

    Pros

    Friendly staff and nice environment to work.

    Cons

    productive for eval time is not counted. Corporate ask for unwanted Documentation, too many documentation which leads to less treatment and more documentation. No holidays in an entire year for next 100 years +. Company does not recognize any american holidays and does not give holidays to any employee. However you can get leave using your PTO on those holidays.

    Advice to Management

    When you have holiday policy -try to follow them providing holidays to employees, do not ask to use PTO. Provide some important equipment through aegis- like standing table/tilt table, Nu-step as mandatory to all SNF and do not expect the facility will buy or provide. you are the one managing rehab, you can provide and bill them on your ties (companies).
    Provide restorative care through aegis and get paid for that from the facilities. Do not expect the facility will provide restorative care, because Ultimate sufferers are patient and if u dont patient then no business.
    thanks for good opportunity to practice.

    Pros

    In all seriousness, there are no pros to working for this company.

    Cons

    Where to begin? Unethical, not supportive, rude, poor treatment of employees, will change dates of signed documents, poor documentation system and technology, do not care about patients, upper level management is heavy and think a lot of themselves, expect you to be doing laundry/patient care/documentation/cleaning/scheduling/and taking phone messages all during patient care time, etc. It is only a matter of time until someone reports this company to Medicare for fraud.

    Advice to Management

    Get real, treat your employees with respect, and work in an ethical manner.

    Pros

    Money is pretty decent. People usually start here and leave after a year or 2 because even the good pay just isnt worth it.

    Cons

    Work life balance is awful. Not enough therapists to cover. Efficiency is more important than care. Policies for time off are out dated and unreasonable. Time away from work just means more work when i return.

    Advice to Management

    Your people are your #1asset. Take care of them and your turnover will improve.

    Pros

    88% productivity requirement is not too hard to meet as a PTA. The company organize continue ED courses quite often. I enjoy working with patients and see their progress.

    Cons

    The company require you to work on holidays with regular pay rate. The PTO hours are hard to use because you need to ask your coworkers to cover your shift.

    Advice to Management

    Great leadership and great team members overall a great company to work for.

  10. Read reviews before going to work for this company

    I worked at Aegis Therapies

    Pros

    People I worked with in the rehab dept are great. They are the reason I stayed as long as I did.

    Cons

    The reviews I read were older, but nothing has changed! I could have written most of them. I am shocked that this company has so little respect for their hard-working, dedicated staff. I wish I had seen these reviews before going to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Support your new employees with better training and orientation methods, rather than being so punitive. Not everyone comes to you with a skilled nursing facility background.


  11. I was a staff OTR in a delapidated home.

    Pros

    Good continuing education and emphasis on quality documentation as well as team work were emphasized and/or provided. Good benefits, decent pay.

    Cons

    Horrible getting time off and no options are available to say no if asked to travel to outlying homes.

    Advice to Management

    Take a less punitive approach and you will gain more employee loyalty.
