Current Employee - Physical Therapist in Salt Lake City, UT

I have been working at Select Medical full-time for more than a year

Pros

higher pay than most companies in my area.

Cons

If you are a therapist, your paperwork is micromanaged. They never point out things you do well, just everything you are doing wrong. There is zero employee appreciation and I have never once heard anything about quality of care. They don't care about the patients or you. You have to wait 90 days to be eligible for benefits (other places I've worked it was the first of the next month of hire) and you don't START accruing PTO until AFTER 90 days. No holiday pay. You have to maintain 90% productivity which is difficult. The second you fall below that they are all over you. If you are looking for top dollar, this company pays well. If not, I would not recommend working for Select Medical.

    Good Place to Sart a Career

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Select Medical

    Pros

    Traveling opportunities are good, small teams

    Cons

    Big corporations tend to have a lot of politics involved.
    Communications between departments, and even sometime within a department is non existent at times.
    Most entry level positions tend to be a support position as well.
    On call after hours at least once a month, so sometimes you end up staying up until 3 am and have to be in at work the next day at 8, which doesn't make for a very productive day.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication and documentation needs improvement among everyone.

    Current Employee - RN ICU in DeSoto, TX

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Co-workers are supportive to heavy workloads, if they have time to help.

    Cons

    Assignments are not based or severity, needs and care necessary for patients. Admits are additional to the already heavy and impossible work load. Negative feedback on any topic. Complaints of lack of logic or dangerous overloads in work, results in termination. Low census due to lack of doctor admits, means less work available for all staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management verbally abuses and insults staff on regular basis. They teach to respect co-workers and patients rights but show nothing of this to their own employees. Power struggles from nursing management and the medical director are a constant issue for staff and results in a fear for your job. All claim absolute power and the abuse of it. The receiving end of the abuse is always the nurses who are over whelmed with excessive care assignments. Paranoid work place for anyone who is threatened to loose their job daily for asking questions relating to poor logic or dangerous assignments like 5 ICU patients per nurse and one tech to assist that singular nurse in the entire ICU.
