    I have been working at HealthSouth part-time

    Pros

    Human Resources best ever. High standards of medical practices. Rehabilitation outstanding. Patients happy. Promotes employee feedback without recrimination. Great environment.

    Cons

    While rehab department is A+ clinically, they need training in security measures and protection of information.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management take note of CEO's modus operandi. Pay attention to detail. Seek more input from subordinates for fresh ideas.

    Pros

    Competitive pay Friendly and very helpful staff Extra shift bonuses offered on occasion Semi-flexible hours Adequate supplies to do the job

    Cons

    Uncaring management Constant demand to work extra shifts Poor employee morale overall Very high patient load for aids and nurses

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to practice some compassion with their employees. When you are a charge nurse for the shift, don't hide out in your office, help the other nurses who are obviously struggling with a ridiculous patient load.

    I have been working at HealthSouth (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Kept in "the know," regardless of position Clearly defined Code of conduct and expectations Free goodies for employees (from food/beverages to t-shirts... Tons of celebrations) Performance assessments Referral bonus programs "Step It Up" program Company policies easily accessible Constant training Personal/professional development The opportunity to advance, help with education Supplies! Tons of supplies available-- high quality supplies-- which make all the difference Thorough orientation (with more free food!) Ability to transfer facilities (100's of Healthsouth nationwide) Employee suggestions are welcomed and frequently implemented Scheduling-- ability to self schedule through the company site

    Cons

    Occasional understaffing. The chairs don't adjust up/down (that or I just can't figure it out).

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good bonus structure - team pay out, realistic quotas, and great benefits/insurance/401K

    It would be nice to see more recognition for individual performance.

    Advice to Management

    Great management - fun team/company to work for.

    Pros

    Great OTs who are supportive of each other and professional.

    I have been working at HealthSouth full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    High-quality, one-on-one time spent with patients. Great fringe benefits (401K, health insurance).

    Cons

    Ridiculously poor compensation relative to Anywhere, USA. Paper-based documentation. Too many corporate compliance/competency educational courses required of employees regardless of how long they have been an employee---the same ones required annually that are performed on your own time (i.e. at home, during lunch, after work). Lack of adequate personal (PT aides) needed for proper cleaning & safe ambulation.

    Advice to Management

    Become more competitive with salaries via market reviews/adjustments & you will decrease turnover & save time/money spent on orientation processes.

    Pros

    The company encourages growth. Uses state of the art equipment. Salary is competitive when bonuses are added. Nice clean facilities.

    Cons

    Management needed improvement. Maintains rigid hours. Requires you to work 2 weekends a month. Would benefit from sensitivity training with upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Could require some sensitivity training with all upper management. Could work on flexibility with ours of operation in order to help with single parents.
