I worked at Peoplefirst Rehab

Pros

They offer $500 a year for CEU's, As well as internet CEUs you can get for free within the co.
PTO is good.
medical and dental are ok.

Cons

It takes a long time to get reimbursed for anything, licenses, certifications, CEUs.
Employees and pts do not come first, the money does, so make sure you bill the way they want you to.
They buy up buildings then struggle to staff them, so good luck if you are in one of the new buildings.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get appropriate amount of staff for each building and stop burning out your staff, also you claim to pay well, however that continues to ellude most of your staff. Who is that you pay well?
Also get a good support system for your managers, they get burned out faster than the grunt staff does.

    Pros

    Benefits Package which includes supportive customer service staff.

    Cons

    Company does not compensate or recognize employees.
    They outsource their therapist from agency and there is little to none carryover.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Direct your focus on recognizing the employees of Peoplefirst.
    Less time wasted on phone conferences with sound effects and invest more in employee satisfaction.

    All about numbers, no positive feedback.

    I worked at Peoplefirst Rehab

    Pros

    Good clinical education. Resources are always available. Open door policy is actually open.

    Cons

    All about numbers, and definitely not about putting people first. Staffing is terrible and nothing was done about it for months and months. Burnout happens quickly. Rehab managers are forced to treat patients when it is practically impossible while managing a busy building. Almost no positive feedback from upper management when a job is well done. Good is never good enough when it comes to anything. Upper management needs to empower rehab directors instead of just being negative & pushing more numbers. They need to be more visible and have a realistic view of what is going on on the floor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get travelers if open positions are not being filled. Be realistic about what is going on in the buildings. Give positive feedback when things are going well. Stop pushing managers to treat patients 50% of the time, or at least give them an assistant manager if this needs to be the case.
