    I worked at Life Care Centers full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    great management, great co-workers, 12- hour shifts, opportunity for overtime, good work-life balance, learned a lot! Acute rehab is an awesome learning experience! If you let the charge nurse or supervisor know you are interested in caring for a patient with a certain diagnosis/wound/med/etc, they will be sure to give you that opportunity as soon as such a patient is admitted. Hard work is noticed and appreciated.

    Cons

    shifts ran over to 13-14 hour shifts frequently, but overtime compensation was paid and with only 3 shifts per week, I didn't mind!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sara was my supervisor at the time. She was awesome! She jumped in to help when nurses were busy with admissions, phone calls, orders, etc. She didn't see herself as any "better" than any of us floor nurses and did all she could to help out wherever she was needed. Hard work was recognized and appreciated during my time working at LLCA.

    I have been working at Life Care Centers as a contractor (less than an year)

    Pros

    Policy and Procedures for everything, vast amount of resources available with overall a very supportive Staff. Team oriented with a sense of a family touch.

    Cons

    Salary versus hours working, does not equate well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Assistant management positions should be encouraged, for contingencies and support in some facilities.

    Pros

    Great support services, company mission, values, and customer service. Room for growth and relocation.

    Cons

    Long hours, high turn over, trying to cut costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When dealing with licensed professionals need to allow for more autonomy and less micromanagement. Morale/team building is in need of great improvement. Senior management promotes and hires based on patronage with unqualified/unlicensed mediocre performers.

    Pros

    Smart team. Considerate, professional management. Area leader for customer satisfaction.

    Cons

    Not enough space. Typical nursing challenges (concrete thinkers at management level and lack of common sense at aide level).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nursing: Lose the rigidity and stop looking the other way at aide issues. Rehab: Improve organization and space use.
