Disappointing, micromanaged, complete disregard towards its employees.

I have been working at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation - West Orange

Pros

Not many, perhaps the benefits, although the management does not like it when you claim it.

Cons

Unable to take vacation, the bosses are constantly micromanaging while in reality not helping, stingy with annual increases and bonuses.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The leadership should take a close look at what kind of managers they employ.

    I worked at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation - West Orange

    Pros

    Job security is great, people are great, a lot of quality rehabilitation research is going on. Very good place to help pepple and make everyday impact.

    Cons

    Somewhat sensitive to recession, very sensitive to medical economy. Starting to change in a hurry, need to see further down the road. Lost some good people during the process..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Real benchmarking is necessary, not to be near-sighted by the national rehab review. We weren't really at the 2nd place after RIC...

    I worked at Kessler Institute for Rehabilitation - West Orange

    Pros

    Great stepping stone to gain experience to take elsewhere, especially at the lower levels. The company has had a good reputation in the field, but it is somewhat undeserved based on recent performance. Benefits were decent. You are not micromanaged, but lack of leadership allows this to radically affect overall company efficacy at all levels.

    Cons

    Very inconsistent performance review process. Often completely influenced by your manager's personal opinion of you rather than on the quality of the work performed. Little justification for ranking, very little opportunity to take issues up-line and receive any resolution. HR ineffective in dealing with problem employees and relationships. A much higher silo mentality than would be expected from such a small organization, preventing true collaboration among departments. The salary structure is completely inconsistent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward employees for the quality of work performed. Set performance standards uniformly. Set salary levels consistently - a great deal of resentment exists because many salaries are known. Most people are in retrench mode and constantly on the lookout to be stabbed in the back or have their ideas stolen.
