    Pros

    Great colleagues that believe in the product and what the company is trying to do for the physical therapy profession Great EMR product; best in the business if the company would get out of its own way Flexibility in your schedule Good vision for company growth

    Cons

    -Frustration with negative reviews from one division in the company....the reviews that are on this page depend on what division of the company you work for. The people that deal with the actual clients regularly are dedicated, really hardworking and always go above and beyond to try and help the customer. -The physical therapy division that is around the country has therapists that are very skilled and provide exceptional care. -There are many great ideas on how to grow and improve, but they take too long to see the light of day. -We know first hand of people that used to work for the company that have a grudge and love to come back and write negative reviews; sad that competitors have to resort to that type of unethical tactic.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of great employees that allow this company to continue to thrive; many have been with the company for years and stayed despite internal conflict that happened years ago. The company needs to do a better job of setting the record straight to the public while the competition plants a negative image on multiple sites versus staying quiet...it is actually a great company with a great product; some upper level management just do a really poor job of communicating that.

    Pros

    No oversight, ample free time, and ; Although, be prepared to be fired randomly as the company is like the wind as it goes through employees and burns cash. Please read the **helpful** reviews below as these are all 100% spot on.

    Cons

    Future employees should take notice that the CEO has a 0% approval rating (even with the fake positive reviews) It's sad, but he is responsible for the ongoing litigation that has turned this company into a dump. The ponzi scheme with PT clinics and worthless stock options have caught up with the company such that there will never be any chance of any valuable product offerings. CEO is busy trying to convince investors and employees that the reason for their failures is other employees and partner hostile takeovers. Despite this being so far from the truth, the CEO's narcissism blinds the company of making true positive progress.

    Advice to Management

    CEO should step down so that someone who is qualified to run a health and wellness company could make steps to hire good people, establish a place of work (not the CEO's megamillion house), establish goals, stick to plans, and grow organically.

    Pros

    Friendly staff, intelligent people, progression if you work for it, definitely would recommend it as a place to start on the career ladder.

    Cons

    Long hours, I didn't have much of a work life balance, superiors were prone to autocratic tendencies. Work was laborious at times, not much attention paid to certain fields.

    Advice to Management

    The company is comprised of four highly synergistic divisions: software services, clinical services, billing and compliance consulting, and branded events.

    Pros

    Vacation/sick/flex-time/telecommuting. There are some great employees in the Murrieta office but some really AWFUL managers. No leadership.

    Cons

    Understaffed. No leadership. No structure. Turnover is ridiculous. Lawsuits. No raises. Clinics and software are profitable but the company sucks up everything to fund lawyers. It's so sad because this place had great potential if the CEO and board weren't so clueless. A company this large should have full-time, engaged C-suite execs. There is no CFO or COO. No HR Director. No true marketing department. No full-time true IT persons (It's held down by 1 guy for close to 1000 people). i think they have under 5-6 people left working on the software now? We used to have full-time lawyers on staff and when they disagreed with the CEO, they were canned. Anyone who disagrees with him gets sacked, ran out and then sued or threatened with a lawsuit. Scary.

    Advice to Management

    More of advice to employees and potential employees. Don't do it. You'll regret it.

    Pros

    They had a lot of great employees that left quickly. Also Holger is a great guy. The only positive is if you aren't motivated to do real work you can survive just talking the talk rather than actually doing anything.

    Cons

    The place is surviving because they trick PT companies into giving their business away for the dream of the software company being huge (hence they make the purchase in stock that isn't worth anything). They tell the PT companies if they get in while the stock is low they will PROFIT. LOL The reality is they survive off the PT businesses and the PT software users are just the companies they have purchased and forced to use the software. The only thing they do that is good for the PT companies they purchase is doctoring their accounting books (I assume legally). Other than that they pretty much have a product that promises the world and delivers nothing.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck with all the lawsuits.

    Pros

    Please note that the reviews between August 5 - August 13 are fake as noted by other reviewers so please discount the already highly positive bias in the company’s score. These were written intentionally by current employees to “massage the score” in an attempt to recruit more developer talent. The only real pro with OptimisCorp is flexibility in terms of work hours/telecommuting/time off. Since there is no accountability or process in place, people come and go as they please; which may be desirable for some individuals. If you are a lawyer, there is plenty of work available as the company is fraught with numerous lawsuits and current ongoing litigation.

    Cons

    The company has a culture of not getting anything done. There is no accountability and success is measured by how many emails and great conversations (and by that I mean lengthy) take place. In my honest opinion, much of this is due to a fundamental lack in technical leadership, starting with the CEO. While he is an incredibly friendly individual, he lacks efficient business acumen and traits of other highly successful CEOs (e.g. efficiency, open to change, accountability, team leadership, technology proficiency). His vision is very focused on a future ideal software offering that will somehow solve every problem with healthcare, wellness, PT, EMR, patient apps, portal, events, etc. (For those that understand technology and how difficult it is to create just one of those … will understand that trying to combine every facet into a single product is just unrealistic). The bottom line is that the OptimisPT product had a dominant share of the PT EMR market early-on; however, the application never matured as the company focused resources in various directions like events and wellness instead of software. As a result of chasing every new great idea, the company has very little synergy and has not embraced itself as a software or technology company. People work all over, remote, Murrieta, LA, Taipei, and Utah with little to no effective communication or cohesion. Turnover is incredibly high and there are no additional C-level employees as individuals that must interact with the CEO find themselves in a pattern of leaving quickly.

    Advice to Management

    I don’t believe any advice I could give would impact the bottom line. The company needs major directional and top-down management restructuring changes to create a profitable strategy moving forward to compete with the current competition of well-organized, highly talented, and venture backed healthcare companies.

    Pros

    Casual environment; flexibility with schedules; good vacation and sick policies; you get paid on time. It can be a great company if they had better leadership.

    Cons

    Inconsistent up the entire chain: management, executives, board of directors; Lack of vision; No clear policies written anywhere; Any policies that are written are consistently ignored; Executives and Management are nowhere to be found; Management makes decisions without even trying to learn any processes, very throw the baby out with the bath water environment; No communication with staff on what is going on; Everything is done at the very last minute; Everything is an emergency or turns into one because they have no back-up plans. Pay is seriously lacking, raises are very few and other than medical, dental and 401k, they don't offer much. No 401k match; no bonuses; Medical and dental aren't even covered 50% for the employee and they don't offer FSA or supplemental or life insurance. They try to tell you they are focused on wellness but they don't offer any of this. Worthless stocks, no raises despite long hours; Cohesion simply does not exist here.

    Advice to Management

    Leadership starts from the top, so try showing some instead of just hiding out in an office together. How about letting your employees in on what you are trying to accomplish? What direction are you trying to go? Do you want to go public? Do you want to be a software company, a health company, a fitness company, a clinical company? Consider getting some specialized consultants in that can help you show you where you can pick up slack across the board and focus on goals for the short and long term. Attempt to talk to your employees and see what is working and what isn't working; Maybe sit down with your key staff and learn WHY and HOW they do things. Write it down. Get more staff in order to organize everything and come up with more consistent policies;

    Pros

    Working with an excellent, hard working group of individuals that dedicate themselves to making OptimisPT and their team members better. A new direction that will allow our company and software to grow exponentially. Being the cutting edge in compliance.

    Cons

    Increased communication about corporate and all current changes can improve confusion and frustration. Lack of resources and bugs can be cumbersome at times.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to listen to all staff ideas regardless of position. Focus not only on the "big picture" but take in too considerations the "little" things that need to be fixed as well. We have issues and bugs that may seem insignificant but will improve our product and show our customers we care. Continue to focus on opening the lines of communication between the developers and the rest of the staff.

    Incredible resources within the PT world! They attempt to stay updated and follow through with the product they are providing.

    Cons

    As with any new company, changes can be significant and communication to all of those involved can be lacking.

    Advice to Management

    There is a group of us that talk with the clients on a daily basis. We really do see what they are looking for. While there might be other things on the agenda of mgmt, please take into consideration what we're hearing from clients and potential clients.

    Pros

    Above everything would have to be the friendly people and the wonderful opportunity to live and work in Southern California. Anything after that is just an added bonus, and there are plenty of other pro's to consider. Being a young software company that is just emerging onto the corporate scene, assuming the product continues to grow, there will be room for advancement, and I believe the recent management shake-up helped to re-focus the direction we are heading. It's an interesting transition period, but I believe in the product and think a lot of people would agree with me. Filling the physical therapy EMR niche has been fascinating, and I'm happy to be along for the ride.

    Cons

    Being in this transition phase and assuming a more typical corporate model takes a lot of work and a healthy dose of stress and uncertainty, but a lot of really great things are starting to emerge as the dust settles.

    Advice to Management

    The biggest change I'd like to see is better communication between the dev team and the testers for more consistent fixes/updates.
