    I worked at Burger Rehabilitation Systems full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    well organized and fair, kind most of the time.I actually worked there in 1999 but that's not an option in the drop down

    Cons

    rigid in their belief systems. I was an itinerant COTA - had to travel a lot

    I have been working at Burger Rehabilitation Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    They only make verbal promises but have you sign unenforceable contracts that intimidate you to pay them back money if you leave even if they did not give you a sign on bonus. H1B applicants beware, it will take over 5 years and they will still intimidate you with unlawful clauses in their contracts

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the Pros were already pretty bad. They are not interested in care, your patients, or you at all. A regional director even referred to elderly patients at "children" and eluding to the fact that they deserve less. The elderly are not children. And if you had to work with children... does that mean you're suppose to treat them less?
    They are immature in handling employee grievances and are retaliatory in nature. No job is worth is. You became a therapist because you have a caring personality. Don't get sucked it. Any weird clauses in your contract. Call the Labor Department. Its free. They are relying on you not to want to spend money on a lawyer for their unlawful contracts. Bottom line, the labor department is free and can advise you. You should not have to pay they just because you want to leave and get a better job even. Really. This is true. Not too many employees talk about it because they have been scared. Do not support this type of environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Times up. Not everyone can be bullied or manipulated.

    Another therapy company that emphasizes administration over actual therapy

    I have been working at Burger Rehabilitation Systems full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Established company with many contracts throughout northern California.

    Cons

    More concerned with finding cheap staff, sacrificing quality of patient care. Consistently dismantled teams to bring in new staff. Did not support the therapy team - from the people headquartered in Sacramento to the local director. Numbers and power to control others are the driving forces.

    One gets the feeling therapy personnel exist to support administration instead of the other way around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Building a good therapy team is primary to building a good reputation. When a good team is dismantled to save money and random personnel brought in people notice. People talk, reviews get posted. It doesn't take long for the reputation of Burger to spread (among therapists, among people with family members in therapy, among nursing facilities).

    Former Employee - Physical Therapist in Folsom, CA

    I worked at Burger Rehabilitation Systems as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    Only positive thing was staff at clinic. They had compassionate support staff, but they were not allowed to do things were forced to run all issues through upper level management to a point that was detrimental to patient communication.

    Cons

    Poor communication from upper management. Bullying tactics from HR and C level management. Pt complaints were not taken seriously or addressed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    treat your employees as you wish to be treated. focus more on fostering staff as opposed to bullying them. health care is in a state of flux and unfortunately companies like Burger are part of the problem.

    I worked at Burger Rehabilitation Systems part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large organization throughout the Sacramento area, lots of opportunities. Many of the facilities have nice congenial staff.

    Cons

    Productivity is emphasized over quality of care, gives the wrong message to employees and clients

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I really think there needs to be more support for Burger Employees that are serving at various sites. I found that there was no procedure for filing a grievance against a superior that was acting inappropriately.
