    I worked at Onward Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, fun office with good management. Worked there for over a year and would have stayed but I found a job closer to my home.

    Cons

    My commute, but that was the only issue I had with the job and that's more of a personal one. Overall it was a solid experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the work hard/play hard mentality going.

    I have been working at Onward Healthcare

    Pros

    Great work environment; supportive team; never a dull moment; flexible work hours; positive atmosphere

    Cons

    Commission - get a better system where employees REALLY get the opportunity to make great money. Be more competitve - we loose a lot of business bc health professionals get higher pay with other agencies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees a higher base; pay your work professionals; get a new grad program - be the company to beat, not the company that gives low rates.

    I have been working at Onward Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There's great opportunity to advance and have growth in your career here if you work hard and succeed at the job given. We have Core Values that we try to emulate everyday. Management has been flexible to work/life balance and is very goal driven.

    Cons

    Professional development and training for mid to upper level management is non existent but they are conscious of this and seeking change. Being goal driven, compensation is tied to sales so it's either a pro or a con depending on how successful you and your team are.

    I have been working at Onward Healthcare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Recruiters are personal and attempt their very best to meet the needs to the employee/ you working for them. if things go wrong in the process, the recruiter is on it, promptly to resolve the situation

    Cons

    placements for assignments have recently been difficult to find

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be 100% honest with your employees (therapists/nurses/ etc) to gain their trust and respect so they are loyal to you through thick and thin. No sugar coating, no promises, no delaying until last minute, just honesty

    I have been working at Onward Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have been working with Onward for over a year and have loved it since day one. The company provides their employees with a hard work ethic and a tremendous office environment. One of the best parts about working here is that everyone likes to have fun. There are always contests and company outings to reward everyone for their hard work. Everyone knows each other and are very friendly with one another! I can't imagine working anywhere else where you have so much fun but be able to be successful at your job. I would recommend Onward Healthcare to anyone!

    Cons

    I hope they can implement summer hours soon!
