    I have been working at Select Medical full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    pay was good. hospital was small. administration was respectful at the hospital level. had good worker safety programs in place. Training was adequate.

    Cons

    short staffing was common. no upward mobility. very little lateral mobility. Night staff was uncontrollable. Lots and lots of turnover in the nursing end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    examine your turnover rate. there may be something behind it.

    Pros

    Other staff members... Clean facilities. It's very hard to think of anything else.....

    Cons

    Micromanaging regional directors that will never see you in person. They manage via email. They do not take your recommendations for improvements unless it was their idea.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your front line staff. Don't always believe the CEO at the hospitals... Half the time they are not even working and leave the facilities early/come in late... They set horrible examples.

    I worked at Select Medical full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work itself is interesting. The patients are complex, the Physicians are engaging, and the type of material that needs to be presented is fun.

    Cons

    The managment are all friends and if you're not in their inner circle, they will try to throw you out. No matter how hard you work, it doesn't matter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't ignore the things going on around you just because it's easier than confronting the issue. IF you notice an employee is working very hard, acknowledge that and give some encouragement instead of always beating down everyone.
