    Pros

    Invest in employers to keep up with the latest changes within the O&P healthcare market. Many workers invest enthusiastically in meeting the goals of aiding patients.

    Cons

    Opportunities to increase in position and personal growth limited and can be transferred to other offices any time. Sometimes feels more about meeting the monthly quota than supplying proper needs for patients.

    Pros

    Good overall company to work for. Very employee and family friendly. OK benefits.
    The employees of Hanger are great and care about the company!

    Cons

    Career planning is not a strength of Hanger. You can become stagnant if you do not express your professional desires. Not a real dedication to employee education

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More defined career paths would improve employee commitment to the organization during the lean times

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

    Pros

    - The minions, outside of the executive wing, are overall good to work with. This may be analogous to all the folks below deck on a slave ship pitching in together, but still...
    - The products and services sold do make a difference in the lives of many.

    Cons

    - Raises and bonuses are laughable, when they are awarded at all.
    - Like more than a few companies these days, the delta between the pay of the working stiffs and that of the executive elite is mind boggling.
    - Annual trip to Las Vegas for Ed Fair is held in a dump casino, and even then, the commoners are expected to share rooms with other co-workers. Cheap? That's one way to put it.
    - Finance area does astronomical amount of work, on a monthly and quarterly basis, due to archaic accounting systems and practices.
    - Leaders of company much more likely to listen to high priced consultants, instead of the folks actually doing the work. Office Space? Most definitely.
    - Lot of managers that have only worked for Hanger. Translation: Lot of managers that don't have a clue about business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your stock just dropped 25%, due to the second quarter in a row that earnings were missed. On top of that, two consecutive annual audit misses? I guess my advice would be to freshen up your resumes; the BOD is watching.

    Pros

    Hanger does have some advancements, I was offered to take on the role clinician role They are very flexible with your request specially having a family to take care of they become some what family

    Cons

    Occasionally there's bonus but they will squeeze out their money out off you

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to be more of an employee advocate, share interest in them (don't pretend to care) specially when they have been making the wheels move and are part of a very large machine.

    I worked at Hanger full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Company had a noble cause but that seems to be about it. It's run like a small business.

    Cons

    Poor management skills and communication. Hardly ever see or meet anyone outside of your office. Management doesn't care about you. Period. Poor ventilation in labs. Cheap harbor freight tools. Not looking to promote within.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit yelling and just talk like we are human.
