    Pros

    Opportunity to learn by picking up the slack, nice office space

    Cons

    Management rewards the big talkers and thinkers but not the ones executing; doesn't promote work/life balance; salaries don't match skill levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a closer look at who really brings value to the company and promote accordingly; cultivate talent; set a clear path for company growth

    Pros

    Coworkers are wonderful. Love working with geriatric population. Each building is different as they are a contract rehab company.

    Cons

    90% productivity demands. High stress. No yearly review or raises. Poor senior management. Threatening policies in place. Unsupportive of therapy staff. Gave everyone a 2% paycut and took away PTO. They don't provide needed equipment, the SNFs must pay for it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Establish fair and honest policies. Reward workers.

    Pros

    fair benefits some good management

    pay scale not up to scale. Care more for the employees that have been with them for a long time and do what you can to keep them instead of laying them off or telling them they have to take a $20k pay decrease

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and make changes to better benefit company and employees

    Former Employee - Software Development in El Segundo, CA

    I worked at Encore

    Pros

    I enjoyed the work environment and some of the folks I worked with. We had a nice office over by LAX which was fun to work at. The pay was okay but management was stiff and stodgy about benefits, time off, etc.

    Cons

    Management was poor and there was no room for growth in this dying business. Our games were average at best and there was absolutely no motivation to innovate. Basically a software sweatshop developing stuff no one buys from stores anymore. Imagine that????

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees about the business, your mistakes and the problems. Quit delegating and start performing. Adapt to change and embrace new ideas instead of towing the corporate line leaving the employees to hang at the end.
