    Great Place to Work! Low Pay

    I worked at Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital

    Pros

    Brooks offers an amazing group of people to work with in a great work environment. IT makes one feel good to come to work every day and help people heal.

    Cons

    The pay at Brooks is no where near competitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rather than focusing on rapid expansion, address your extremely high turn over rate by offering competitive salaries in ALL areas of the enterprise.

    I have been working at Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    State of the art equipment and knowledgeable staff. Highly informative in services and trainings. Good cafeteria food.

    Cons

    A lack of general compassion for patients. Required to document cookie cutter, mechanical, lots of med-bots. Overall "unfriendly" sense.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer your employees a mentor or help with new equipment. New people coming in can't just already know all you expect of them. Unrealistic expectations and standards. Stop expecting everyone to document on breaks or go to computer Labs after working all day and stay late. PAY your part time employees a better wage hourly, you wonder why none of them want to shift from PRN and its because you pay poorly for what you demand.

    I have been working at Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The Residents are wonderful and really appreciate what we do for them. The rehab team is a great tight team and do wonderful things for the residents.

    Cons

    Terrible management, it is all money driven and the employees do not matter. Pay has been decreased and benefits taken away because they keep buying new businesses. It is all about "getting your minutes" and not about the patient anymore. No support from management or upper management. Constant rotating door with staff because people keep leaving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that actually know what they are doing and appreciate the staff they have. Hire someone that brings in Moral instead of people that drive people to leave.

    Pros

    Good reputation in community quickly being run into the ground by current mgmt

    Cons

    Poor mgmt. bullying by management. Lack of support from mgmt. dishonest company. High pressure/stress to make unrealistic numbers for 3 facilities soon to be 4. Not enough help. Poor pay/benefits, favoritism. No positive reinforcement only negative. It is like being beaten with a whip every day. No respect. Treated like work horse. No empathy or kindness toward employee ur just a body to bring in numbers/patients. Greedy. Greedy Greedy. Mgmt has run this once family oriented employer into the ground. Such a shame

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a sweep through of getting rid of upper and middle mgmt. replace with people that actually know how to manage people.

    Pros

    not for profit facility which gives back to its community; various settings to work in as career evolves; great adaptive sports program inclusive of recreation & competitive programming.

    Cons

    FL is blazing HOT & humid most of the year, but can be offset if you live @ the beach or have a pool.
