I have been working at Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago part-time (more than an year)

Pros

RIC has really earned it's top spot as the #1 rehabilitation hospital. Most everyone is deeply invested in the spirit of rehabilitation, and it shows in their work. RIC cares where few hospitals do, and in spades.

Cons

Being in the middle of downtown Chicago, it can be a difficult commute unless you're in the area.

    Pros

    Some great people. Mission to help disabled people.

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen or value employee opinion(s) or experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees - you hired them for a reason. If they have an additional skill set and are eager to help, let them (pharmacy!). Sign of a good manager is seeing an employees strengths.

    I worked at Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago

    Pros

    Great location. Knowing that you are working with the best doctors in physical med & rehab.

    Cons

    RNs are bottom of the totem pole. Doctors take physical/occupational/speech therapists more seriously.
    I felt floor was understaffed at times compared to the physical workload that rehab med requires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire better nursing managers on the floor. Train them on how to give positive feedback.
