    I have been working at RehabCare full-time

    Pros

    Benefits package is good, generous PTO, directors strive to give you enough support to be successful, wonderful wealth of resources and online training.

    Cons

    Compensation is not competitive for the area, no raises, care more about productivity than quality patient care, little to no training when you start, high turnover rate within buildings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your staff.

    I have been working at RehabCare part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Rehab care has a very flexible work schedule I could start as early as I wanted and take a lunch for as long as I wanted as long as I provided treatment for my entire case load that day.

    Cons

    Caseload can change from week to week. Some weeks were high and. Some were low. I feel like I have lost some of my skills bc I have been seeing a lot of the same diagnoses and providing similar treatments to the patients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper manage wasn't involved much during my time with rehab care. I would like to see more involvement

    Pros

    Strong, stable growing company that cares for employees and the patients that we serve.

    Cons

    Perhaps there is a little bit of room for improvement with communication from corporate to staff level employees.

    I have been working at RehabCare as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Currently, I work PRN and due to working at different locales, am able to experience varied settings and teams. I have befriended some very upstanding clinicians in most of these places.

    Cons

    When working PRN, you are at the bottom of the work pool. When the patient census decreases to the extent where there is insufficient time for full-time and floater staff, I am either cancelled or simply not offered assignments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Busy, but never too busy to assist.

    Pros

    Great Opportunities for new grads or someone just getting into the rehab field

    Cons

    Scheduling can be frustrating.. Inconsistent based on needs of facility. Management is often motivated by productivity and not the needs of patient or employees

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Rehab professionals in general tend to make for awesome coworkers. The therapists are all really great and want to do the best for patients. Most sites are pretty flexible with hours and days off.

    Cons

    Unrealistic productivity expectations (>90% even for therapists who have to do all the weeklies, discharges, and evaluations) force you to do all of your documentation while you're with the patient. Every minute of your day is managed on the ipads, "starting" and "stopping" each patient as you see them. Program directors rarely last more than a year. All documentation is done on ipads which make it nearly impossible to complete thorough documentation quickly. There is a lot of pressure to see Medicare A patients at the highest reimbursement level (over an hour a day). There usually isn't a lot of flexibility built into your day when things don't go smoothly, like if a patient takes a lot longer than you expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower productivity expectations! I became a physical therapist because I love doing hands on, evidence based treatment. Having a patient ride a bike or do seated exercises so I can document while I'm with them is not high quality care!

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent salary that may be higher than the industry average depending on where you work

    Co-workers/other therapists are great

    Cons

    This company's business practices suffer from the same issues as most organizations in the SNF field--eg, picking up patients who aren't appropriate, keeping patients on a caseload for too long, etc.

    90% productivity is just absurd and, for certain disciplines, unethical

    There's a wide disconnect between therapists and management (upper management is the bigger problem, middle management is more of a mixed bag). Having people who were never therapists, or who have limited experience as clinicians, making decisions that impact clinical practice is NOT a good way to go. Also, I've actually overheard management talking about the therapists like we're rebellious children. Not ok.

    No 401k matching and lackluster benefits all-around

    Not much room for advancement

    You get an iPad for POS documentation, which sounds cool until the carpal tunnel starts to set in

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take time to recognize the needs of your therapists, who are incidentally the backbone of your company. Be ethical.

    Some challanging patients and low census.
