    Pros

    The pay is great and HR really helps with a smooth on boarding process also the facility is high tech.

    Cons

    No cons I just started working as of yesterday. The only con would be that kessler is only in a selected amount of towns.

    Pros

    Great co-workers to be around working as a team to get through the day.

    Cons

    No discount on food and drinks for employees. Only free coffee, and free tea. One minute you're told to work as a team, and the next you're told to work alone. It's a lot of politics and a few workers who think they own the name Kessler.

    Advice to Management

    Management is pretty cool here.

    Disparity in payscale and limited room for growth

    Pros

    Part of a larger team. You get to learn a lot of skills. Great to put on your resume.

    Cons

    They give you time off, but it is very difficult to get the days off you want. The usual is to have a 2 patient to 1 therapist ratio (unless doing brain injury) and this includes stroke patients, and sometimes it is difficult to jump back and forth between patients. Also, you can't get money towards continuing education until you have worked for at least a year.

    Advice to Management

    Get more per diem and/or part time employees so that full time employees can take time off and spend holidays with their loved ones.

    Pros

    Good coworkers and patients. Pay decent considering you don't need prior experience. Hours you want including overtime allowed. Full time allows for pto/sick days.

    Cons

    Health insurance could be better for working in the healthcare field. Raises are only 2% max yearly. No bonuses. Can't move up unless you get a degree in something specific.

    Pros

    Love the patients. Giving the care and expertise when it comes to wound care and learning about spinal cord and traumatic brain injuries

    Cons

    The pay and if your not a nurse or a physical therapist, might as well be on food stamps.
