    Pros

    Caring staff. Clean environment. DON is caring and understanding. Experienced staff for those who they can keep.

    Cons

    Employer Based Health Insurance cost are not affordable. The "good" plan they offer is $250 per week for family coverage. The cheapest family plan they offer is about $135 per week and that has high deductibles before paying anything. Can not keep new staff mostly due to the high insurance cost. Too much focus on "don't go over your hours". Not enough focus on keeping the employees they currently have. Company raised the "census", and the center struggles to meet it. Not so sure it was a good idea for them to become the largest in the industry, as they are having a extremely hard time focusing on what is important and how to keep staff. Company has no recognition of a job well done, nor any respect for the employees themselves, just look at insurance cost they offer their employees. Management does what it can to alleviate the stress in the atmosphere, but their hands are tied. Pay scale is low for amount of work that is expected or experience brought to the company. Raises are minimal. It is way too much about the "budget".

    Advice to Management

    Advice to Corporate.....Respect your management teams, Listen to them. Respect your employees. A company will make more money if you treat employees with respect and treat them well and make them want to stay. Start off by offering health insurance that an employee can afford. Could you afford to pay $250 per week for family coverage if you were making $9.25 an hour? Didn't think so. Low turnover equates to higher profits.

    Pros

    Team work was great, everyone was committed to helping out clients, we all worked together, loved all the co-workers . Friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    Management had no clue how to run a department. It seemed like every week we were trying a new program and when that didn't work to their expectations, they threw out the whole program and tried another one. They didn't try to fix it, they just threw it out. They didn't even know how to run their own programs and to make any changes to it. Everyone was expected to do more in less time. Computer system kept crashing and there was not enough computers to do the required paperwork. Managers knew this and yelled at people all the time. No raises for anyone in years. No thank you, nothing for a good job.

    Advice to Management

    Get the computers that are required for people to do their jobs. Support your staff. Quit worrying about buying the next thing and instead worry about paying people who work for you. A little appreciation would go a long ways towards keeping people. You claim you appreciate people but you never show it. You need to show that you appreciate the people who work for you and not just the middle management and upper management people.

    Pros

    Decent pay, PTO, free CEU system (just a bunch of power points, not really effective)

    Cons

    GRS is an ungrateful, manipulative, disrespectful excuse for a rehab complany. You never feel like your job is secure, always at risk for transfer to other buildings or traveling up to 2 hours away to another building when caseload is low. I worked under several managers, each with their "pets" that got privileges (off every holiday, modified schedule when requested, shorter weekend hours etc...) while the rest of the team sits in disbelief of the biased treatment. The relationship between GRS and GHC is awful, no respect between therapy and nursing and administration, makes caring for your patients hard. Managers make excuses for low merit raises and blame it on the company as a whole, once they actually do your review 4-5 months after it was due. Absolutely no flexibility, tons of PTO but you can't ever use it. If you're hired on at less than 40, expect to work 40 without any of the benefits of a 40 hour employee. You will be their pawn, a puzzle piece that they just try to stick anywhere that works for them, such a shame. Your individual talents are not acknowledged let alone appreciated, you're expendable. You're scheduled at 90% productivity but told under the table, 85% is okay while still fitting in all those patient's in one day. Horrible healthcare benefits, expect to go on Obamacare if you have a family... it'll be cheaper than healthcare from genesis.

    Pros

    Coworkers are amazing. Hours can be flexible if agreed with supervisor. Team effort felt in most departments

    Cons

    Horrible benefits, no appreciation for lower staff. Only allow standard hours for vacation time even if you work over that for over a year.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Remember they are the ones who are representing the company to the consumer not your cooperate employees
