    Pros

    Great Pay with excellent overtime. A great location with lots of lunch options. Has an open office type of atmosphere and understanding of time off requests.

    Cons

    Where to begin... The Project Coordinator for the whole project is inept at his job and I am not sure how he maintains his position there. There were no procedures in place for each team to follow so that all work would have a uniform look to it making it difficult to produce a final product on time. The Project coordinator plays favoritism and only kept those who brown nosed him and had no actual skills other than just doing what they were told and NOTHING more. The coordinator does not listen to any problems and does not accept that he may have forgotten to do something and would rather throw you under the bus instead. PK should be relieved of his duties. Other notes... employees responsible for sensitive information went out of their way to hide or destroy evidence that an event happened. To me it seems that it is like High School, you only get ahead if you are popular or if you brown nose the teacher. Disappointed with how they treated each contractor and how they let them go... no TACT.

    Advice to Management

    Slow down and look at what your management team is doing. You have people in leadership positions who are uninspiring and who go out of their way to belittle you. Being a leader is more than just having a title. Realize talent when you see it and try to keep it around, if you can. Do not play favoritism and do not keep people around just because they brown nose you or agree with you all of the time... your company will never grow if you do that. Hold you employees accountable for their mistakes and do not let them blame a contractor who won't be around to give testimony to any facts. Above all else if you are the right hand you better know what the left hand is doing.

    Pros

    Small office. So you become close with your co-workers, like a little family.

    Cons

    The pay sucks, the financial counselors/front office does all the hard work to bring in the money while the Prosthectic & Pedorthic Clinicians take all of the money & yearly bonuses for themselves. As the front/financial staff, you will be walked over, mistreated, & taken advantage of all while being talked about like a dog. No appreciation verbally or financially for the front office staff & financial counselors who get the money in the clinicians pockets!

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the changing market & the cost of living with hourly pay rates. Show your front office staff & finiancial counselors how valuable they are to the office & company. AMM's need to report to corporate that their area office staff isn't getting paid any money for what they do to keep the money rolling in. As the AMM, you shouldn't keep quite about it because the Clinicians share the office bonus with them to keep their horrible secret of how they're really robbing their office staffs blind!

    Pros

    Lots of good experience with a wide range of patient presentations. Good experience depth as a company, to collaborate and learn multiple techniques for any given clinical problem. Good continuing education experience.

    Cons

    Had a tendency to be dollar driven, at the ultimate expense of the patient, practitioner, and office administration. A balance can be found but can be a challenging environment.

    Pros

    Good mission and good people.

    Cons

    Ceo, financial teams are overworked and understaffed, lack of financial systems

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the board - this experiment is over. It is time for an established Ceo before the company is beyond repair and more key people leave or retire early.

    Internet: Mr. Vinit K. Asar has been the Chief Executive Officer and President of Hanger Orthopedic Group Inc. (known as Hanger, Inc.) since May 21, 2012 and September 12, 2011 respectively. Mr. Asar served as the President of Hanger Orthopedic Group from September 12, 2011 to May 21, 2012. He also served as Chief Growth Officer of Hanger Orthopedic Group since December 2008. He served as an Executive Vice President of Hanger Orthopedic Group Inc. from December 2008 to September 12, 2011. He has nearly 20 years of extensive global experience developing new health product and service businesses and growing existing organizations, both organically and through acquisitions.

    What has the Ceo accomplished?

    As the Cgo, started 3 businesses and all of them cost the company millions and all failed. As the Coo, was responsible for the finances, investments, budgets, direction of the company - how is Hanger in this position with the Sec, Sox, auditors, delayed company earnings? Since becoming the Ceo the company has missed 7 of 9 quarters. The company missed 1 quarter in the previous 5 years. The company has delayed its earnings announcements every quarter this year and the third quarter earnings announcement has not be scheduled. The board is being systematically replaced including the founder of the company. The stock price has dropped from 40 to 20 and shareholder lawsuits have commenced. When is enough, enough? Let the record speak for itself, it is time for a welcomed and positive change.
