    Pros

    As a rehab assistant, you have a variety of responsibilities. It is a good starting point for someone wanting to go into the medical field. You get to pass medications, give injections, do wound care, etc. Assisting with ADLs is also a big part of the job.

    Cons

    The job is not always glamorous. Every individual rehab assistant has their own methods and they do not always abide by protocols, so it can get confusing at times. Particularly if you are switching between houses. There tends to be drama between staff members as well. Not much room for advancement. Wage is reasonable for an entry-level job, but not as a career.

    Pros

    I started out part time and then went full time. Full time is 40hrs a week.

    Cons

    Very strict driving record in order to get hired Very strict shifts, and not very flexible for college students. The pay rate just went up, so you might be ok with the pay rate.

    Advice to Management

    Do more for employees and their needs to be more shifts for students.

    Pros

    You have a great opportunity to learn how to care for tbi patients. Great training.

    Cons

    They hire too many young people who don't want to work.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to be fair with your seasoned experience workers. Try to hire some people with experience that are more mature who are capable of making mature decisions and know how to treat the clients like humans your heart has to be into a position like this it's more than a paycheck.

    Pros

    Your work is greatly needed and appreciated by co workers. As a rehabilitation assistant, you work directly with the individuals most in need and this can be a very rewarding experience. For the most part, others who choose to do this work are also willing to help others and overall co workers created a great support network, which is greatly needed in this field.

    Cons

    Felt overall as a company there wasn't much attention paid to not only the clients but also the workers who spend everyday supporting the clients. There wasn't a lot of attention paid to changing or improving the state of living for these individuals-at least in the home I worked in.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in more resources and outside activities to involve the clients in the community and expand their horizons. Focus on your clients, this is what your whole company should be about.

    Pros

    The pay was nice, you got to go on outings with the clients, the training was awesome and informative.

    Cons

    It was hard for me to balance school, home life, and the stress of the job

    Advice to Management

    There should be more opportunities for advancement especially when half of the staff are in school furthering their education. There should be an opportunity for those who still want to work for the company post graduation.

    Pros

    Company has reasonably generous benefit package, especially the 401k plan. They will repeatedly talk about it, so much so that I seriously think they get money back on the side, because they practically answer the phone babbling about the 401k program. Reasonable raises, company picnic. RAs get paid to do things like go to the movies or shopping. Depends on your position, but you can get flexible schedules.

    Cons

    Generally no upward mobility unless you are in management. Senior management constantly self-promotes each other, meaning they will announce they have a new title and higher pay, to do the same thing they did before. There is an "in club" of popular managers and specialists, and generally everyone else's opinions are ignored. Blatant rudeness and disrespect for RAs and any employee who does not have lots of letters after their name on their business card. RAs are blamed for everything. Every now and again they like to make a political statement and go on a mass firing spree which is always targeted towards RAs. Lots of chest thumping from senior management.

    The worst part is really how some of the clients are treated. Remember, this is a for-profit operation here, and you don't make money by sending people home and telling them they're cured. Clients who are high functioning and battle "the system" by wanting to be sent home, don't feel they need to have their lives completely controlled, or in any way uncooperative are designated "behavioral" and are sent to houses with even more restrictions, or worse, are thrown in front of a psychiatrist and medicated til they are compliant. I've seen this place break people. In some cases, it's like being accused of a crime you didn't commit and thrown in a psychiatric hospital and there's no way out.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the chest thumping. No one cares how many bs accreditation letters you have on your business card. Treat RAs with some dignity and respect.

    Pros

    Great mission, Opportunities for advancement, Lots of OT, clients make it feel rewarding, Benefits are great, 401k is great, a lot of available training, company functions for your family

    Cons

    Upper management,, nurses, directors, psychologists are all nightmares. They are extremely disrespectful and rude. They talk down to the RA's who are the MOST important people in Rainbow. RA's are spending all of their time and energy caring for the clients. None of the upper management would survive one day trying to do the RA job.

    They need to screen staff better. I worked with some horrible people that treated the clients very badly. When I complained to upper management, no one cared. They just hire anyone off the street and keep them no matter how bad of a job they are doing.

    They are regularly understaffed in the facilities so you will have double the workload on a regular basis.

    Most managers and nurses get irritated and/or yell if you call them with an issue. Then will yell at you if you don't call also. You can never win at this place. They will also throw you under the bus if anything goes wrong. I've seen many people get blamed for something that wasn't their fault just because management didn't want to be in trouble. .

    Advice to Management

    More respect for the RA's and better pay. You would have nothing if it wasn't for them busting their butts for your company. Listen to your RA's more. They know WAY more about these clients then you will ever know sitting behind your desk.

    Pros

    You start at 9 an hour, but after 6 months and every year after you have a chance to increase hourly rate by .50. Scheduling is great, employees are good, and ability to move up in company.

    Cons

    Upper management, pay is less than desired for the work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees more to show them that they mean something to you. They are the ones that are spending 24 hours a day with your clients. We all feel under valued and unappreciated, yet we're the people that you trust to run your group homes. The amount of time it takes to make it to a "living wage" at this company is crazy and I inflation makes it hard to support a family.
