    Pros

    Flexible schedule, pleasant staff, good pay. I have been a therapist for over 20 years. We take good care of our patients and I can't tell you how many courtesy visits I have done and gotten paid for while the company did not....because a patient needed something.

    Cons

    Medicare is the challenge for me, not almost family. The requirements become more strict so the paperwork is more. I am prn so I do hear the benefits are expensive...but my husband's insurance almost doubled again this year as well and that doesn't have to do with his employer...that's new healthcare. It is a large company and decisions are made by those higher up...not always easy.

    Pros

    This is as close as it gets to employers knocking on your door. If a job ad is being distributed by e-mail, the employer is reaching out. These could be sent to, and come to you through, Career Services, your academic department, advisors, clubs, you name it.

    Cons

    None, really. It's just a form of information and communication coming to you. Even if a particular job/career fields is not of interest, use it to learn about what is out there.

  11. They really care about their clients.

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and great pay, The Director really tries to be fair by trying to give everyone some hours, need more cases for work.

    Cons

    Not alot of hours , a little of favoritism to older employees at times. Sometimes good employees get pushed out by not so good employees.

    Advice to Management

    The benefits need to be tweeked, need PTO and better insurance for their employees.
