    Pros

    Very Ethical company. Good career ladder, promote from within. Lots of education/clinical resources. Company growth throughout the US and into China.

    Cons

    Since going public, eliminated positions and reassigned their duties, so those left are doing more with less without any increase in compensation. GRS more strictly managed than GHC. (GRS had wage freeze for 2+ years, GHC did not) Significant cut in healthcare options, increase in benefit costs. no 401k match for years.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what got you to where you are today. Unrealistic work demands will cause you to lose great employees.

    Pros

    I learned a lot about Medicare guidelines as a Rehab Office Coordinator. The company has an online continuing education program. If a contract is lost they will try their best to find another location for you.

    Cons

    Unfortunately there is a significant disconnect between corporate and their contract sites. Prior to their takeover of Sundance the company wasn't so bad, after the acquisition forget it. HR is terrible, if you have an ethical issue with the way services are being delivered or with management don't assume that HR will "help resolve the conflict", they will always defend their Rehab managers no matter what may happen or what proof you can provide that something is going on. The company has just grown to be to big, they have a monopoly over the industry, and I'm not sure how they get away with it. Last year after they purchased Sundance they cut most therapists/ staff hours to 30-32/ week. I worked my butt off and never received a raise or an annual review for that matter though I had inquired with the Area Director several times. They also will make you travel to two or more locations in your "area", and no longer pay for travel expenses.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce PCH!! Show an interest in and support your employees, improve contracted work environments by actually being present and opening your eyes to the inefficiencies your employees may face when expected to meet such high productivity rates and provide Point of Care service!

    Pros

    Nice residents,co-workers.Free parking, doing the work off all the peoples that call out constantly

    Cons

    They don't care about their staff,20 cents raise a year is the proof.Starting minimum wage for tedious work. Company only numbers based. Poor condition of work.The industry as a whole is a joke and that is why they have a 80% turnover.Couldn't wait to move on.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at other hospitality type of food service, such as hotel , etc...and duplicate their system. Understand that reducing the turnover to 20% somehow will translate into more profit in the long run, and give REAL incentive to what your describe (yeah right) your biggest asset.

    Pros

    There are no Pros to this company. You accrue time off based on years of service, yet they do not approve your time off. Even in an emergency you cannot take personal time unless you work for yourself

    Cons

    No time off granted and have to work for yourself to get time off. Will not let employees take week off during any holiday, and they only give you 2 holidays which you have to work/

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your employees they are very unhappy.
