    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

    Just to have an income I guess

    Cons

    Expect you to never make a mistake even if you only been on the job a few days. Dont care about patients or employees just money and numbers. Most of the staff were utter trash, and looked and carried themselves that way. Management were constantly speading employees private business amoung the company and to other employees. The list goes on, just a horrible place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Replace yourself

    Cons

    Great company. Just Horrible corporate management

    Advice to Management

    Fire the exec staff completely and hire people that actually care to do a great job with great people. Great leaders do not bully their employees; they cultivate and teach so that they become leaders.

    pay was okay nothing great.

    Cons

    WORSE TRAINING EVER- I was trained not even for one week and the management team expects you to learn everything even if you are new and have no clue what is going on in a busy office. They can care less about you as an employer, WORST STAFF AND CLINICIANS- very rude, heartless, and cold people, they say the lamest jokes, the clinicians were very unprofessional by throwing out F-Bombs and cursing like sailors. I was constantly getting yelled at by one of the clinicians due to petty mistakes ( EVEN IN FRONT OF PATIENTS) , belittled, and had sarcastic jokes about my performance implemented upon me. Sexual innuendos between male and female staff members made on a daily basis, very trashy place and hostile environment to work in.

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals with more substance to them as human beings. Pathetic that I had to experience working with bitter and heartless clinicians who have zero substance to them. I do not even think they were human beings, pigs have more substance as animals they they could ever have. Worst experience ever, worst job ever, disgusting!

    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 Management

    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

    - 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 Management

    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.
