    Pros

    They have not eliminated paid time off or medical benefits yet.

    Cons

    Unreasonable productivity demands causing ethical billing delemmas daily
    No breaks
    No pay raise in years
    All the company cares about is making money, compromising quality of care to do so
    They do no allow COTA's to perform at the top of their license, you are treated more like a rehab tech
    Although you receive paid sick leave, you are strongly encouraged to make up the day or get written up for taking 3 separate days within 90 days.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to acknowledge work well done and not just productivity. It would be helpful if management also recognized we are working with medically compromised individuals who have rights and those rights need to be acknowledged.

    Pros

    Patients/residents. They are what I miss the most, really about the only thing that I miss.

    Cons

    People with little experience or education are put into positions of authority and lack the talent and tact to make it successful. This company burns through good and fantastic employees and tosses them aside. In 2 years the building I worked in went through 3 administrators alone. Management at buildings are not knowledgeable enough in each department to know what's really going on. Company employs regional staff members that staff at the building have a "dotted line" reporting structure. Each department is so focused on their own goals and how things impact them that they lose sight of trying to build a cohesive working environment. Different standards for different employees. I would daily hear comments from Regional staff about not completing a certain task is considered a "terminable offense", but then when duties shifted in my department, those same tasks all of a sudden became "not really important and necessary to do". Regional staff would degrade staff and treatment can only be classified as abuse. When reported to HR I received comments such as "they are working with regional staff member on her people skills" and they are "training her how to speak to staff". Really? and this is who you have a regional "expert" and this is who the building administrators rely on providing them details? I stuck it out for over two years before finally realizing that I was better than that and could do so much better and I did. Believe it or not, there are actually really good skilled nursing facilities out there that actually care about their staff and administrators who want to learn what really happens in their building and people who actually work together towards a common goal and it's amazing that when you are treated with respect and dignity that you actually care about what you do and love going to work each day.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff and care about them. If you see a building going through numerous staff members, then maybe dig into it a bit more and see where the problem is. I couldn't take the abuse any longer and just left. Not one person called and actually wanted to follow up with me as to why. Problems are swept under the rug. The regional QAM has ran off more staff members in my building, but nothing is done about it. It can't always be the person who left, there are reasons why they leave and you should look into that.

  6. This is a stable company to work for.

    Pros

    Stable work environment. Always work to do. Good coworkers. Locations all over the place with the opportunity to transfer. There are some good programs like the employee foundation.

    Cons

    The pay is not competitive with other companies. Company keeps growing but does not hire more to keep up with work load. Then they don't give raises even though you are doing more work.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth.

    Pros

    The pros were working with the geriatric population, and developing POTs for patients.

    Cons

    Ridiculously high productivity model. The whip was cracked on us daily over that. Many of us would clock out to do paperwork, so we could meet the productivity percentage. Pay was based hourly, so it meant very long days, as all the patients were individually targeted for therapy sessions.

    Advice to Management

    Since I was the sole SLP, I only had myself to depend on for completion of screenings, evaluations, therapy, and carry-over skills of patients. No PRN was available. I was only allowed one week of vacation at a time. My first vacation came 1.5 years later, after this company took over. My days were 10-12 hours long most of the time. When a resignation letter is presented, forfeiture of accrued PTO is automatic. Not a best practice, but no one is going to enforce anything, because no law exists for that in my state. It is a tattletale, micromanagement model. It makes the workplace a stressful, often hostile environment. When I placed my resignation, immediately I was bullied. Attempting to leave sooner than the resignation date is not an option. I was threatened with being blacklisted for attempting to employ constructive resignation. As to my reference letter, my boss conveniently ignored it. I will stay on that, since I worked at my host facility for nearly three years. I deserve that much. Five minutes after I clocked out for the last time, my boss cleaned off my desk within five minutes. Good thing I had the foresight to extract all my personal belongings ahead of time. I'm glad for the experience, but truly the bottom line is profitability.

    Pros

    Interesting and needy patient caseload. Establishment of mutually beneficial professional relationships is possible.

    Cons

    Vicious, brutal management style, designed to mask the incompetence of the leadership. Clinicians were repeatedly threatened, insulted, misrepresented and falsely accused by depraved and uncivilized Directors and Area Managers. All employees found their supervisors and upper management to be repulsive in their ineptitude and boorishness.

    Advice to Management

    They should be ashamed of themselves. Serves them right to lose so much business in one year.
