    Excessive expectations

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsFlexible schedule, friendly co-workers, challenging and rewarding work, decent benefits.
    Excellent work environment for nurses and therapists.

    ConsManagement only cares about filling beds. No support for short staffed departments, even after asking for help several times. Was initially offered a very low salary, but was able to negotiate. Unable to trust senior leadership. Very few career advancement opportunities unless you are a nurse or therapist. Management will take advantage of employees in order to save money.

    Poor management, many patient safety/care issues, staff with little to no experience

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Littleton, CO

    ProsThere are many other facilities to go to-research before admitting family or friends to HealthSouth

    ConsNegativity, toxic environment for staff and patients, no management, poor and unsafe patient care, company values are to make money with no regard to staffing, acuity, patient care, safety, or experience of staff.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet management with experience and not just a warm body to fill the positions

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

     

    I was there to bill for every patient orders were written for , regardless of whether they were appropriate or not.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsPay is good but you will earn every penny.

    ConsEthics don't exist. Corruption abounds at senior team levels. You are asked to sign off on other peoples therapy notes after they've left the company. Patients are never a priority unless they have insurance or extra Medicare days where they can be "extended". This is a for profit company and that is the only thing that matters. And Press-Gainey.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHold people at the senior team level accountable professionally and personally.

    ProsCoworkers are good people , room for advancement exists, changes in "ways to do things" not accepted well

    ConsCorporate tends to not be open-minded and have tunnel vision with some aspects. Do things "the way they have always been done"

    Advice to Senior ManagementRevisit priorities

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
