    Pros

    Enjoy what we stand for. Not micro managed. Work hard but set your schedule

    Cons

    Janger is in transition and I'm am not sure the executive team has a clear strategy going forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people in the market everyday speaking to real patients and hospitals. It does no good to lock executives that have backgrounds in other industries in a room and have them set the course for our future.

    Pros

    If you are in aa good office, it is wonderful. You work as a team. You have meetings to discuss what is happening and how best to handle certain patients. People are supportive, helpful and cooperative.

    Cons

    If you are in the wrong office, none of that takes place. You become an independent contractor with no feeling of unity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show up at the office and see how the office functions or doesn't.

    I worked at Hanger full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The company was really great, and I felt that if it was my chosen field that there would be a lot of chance for opportunity. However there is a lot of the old culture that is still very well embedded within the management team, this however makes it hard to do things. Well, I can't necessarily speak for all of the senior leadership in regards to this but my boss had this issue.

    Cons

    MY particular department was lead by a boss who only worked well within a team of 1.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Doing well, just need to weed out the old blood.

    Poor CEO Leadership

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX

    I worked at Hanger full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company mission incredibly self rewarding, dedicated and loyal employee base, competitive salary, great corporate office environment.

    Cons

    The company lacks an experienced CEO that understands how to build a successful organization. Vinit Asar demonstrates a leadership style that demands respect, exercises manipulative tactics, conducts deceitful actions, and delivers a condescending experience with other leaders across the organization. After serving nearly six years of total service with the company, and the past three as president, he continues to fall short on fostering / building standards across all business lines and endorsing the effort (with action) to operate as a billion dollar organization. Vinit presents an impressive "Smoke and Mirrors" illusion with the Board of Directors, but the drastic drop in stock price since taking over as CEO, should present a realistic understanding of the true stat of the company. It's entertaining to hear the leadership team talk about "Strong Leaders" when they harbor a wink link at the top.
    As long as Vinit continues to be in the position as CEO at Hanger, they will never reach their full potential within the market space and hit projected profits as forecasted. How many missed quarters does it take and drop in stock price (almost 50%) before someone realizes the core problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    BOD - don't take my word, conduct an investigation and poll the leadership population on Vinits value and lack of leadership integrity.

    Advice to Vinit - you can't demand respect, you need to earn it. If you don't respect others how do you expect others to respect you?

    Pros

    Free coffee/pop
    Good social events
    Lots of friendly people

    Cons

    Command and control style in IT
    IT manager talks the talk but not walks the walk
    Management is not concerned > 50% of team members left one development team
    Don't value employees (especially individual contributor)
    Most people in the IT department leave with in the first year.
    There was also quite a bit of in fighting between the different IT groups and also within the same IT team
    Don't be fool there is no open door policy, leadership team can't take the truth so don't dare to speak up

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find managers willing to stand up for their employees, and not just a YES man to the executives
    Please don't keep manager who is simply good at passing the blame and the spin game
    Vinit and CIO need to listen to what they are being told by HR and not what they are hearing from their direct reports (VP, director)

    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.
