    Pros

    Friendly coworkers. In a position where I need to contact many individuals within the Select Medical family, I very rarely encounter anyone acting unpleasant. Facilities are well-kept, management tends to look out for their employees

    Cons

    Benefits are lackluster. There is a certain pride in my area of how lean we are able to run our department, but that can lead to some individuals being stretched too thin and struggling to keep up.

    Advice to Management

    Look towards sprucing benefits up somewhat. They start out lackluster, and it takes a while before you begin to see real improvement

    Large company with plenty of resources and transfer options. Additionally the benefits are fair.

    Your concerns get lost on the way up. Almost a too big to fail mentality.

    Don't feed into the drama and hatred of the employees.

    Pros

    I received a pay check, but other than that, unless you are the CEO and get money for the amount of business brought in, I have nothing.

    Cons

    If you care about the environment then you should go somewhere else. Forest after forest are killed at this company!
    No scrubs, but the front desk employees look trashy and so do the Therapists. A uniform or scrubs would make the employees look better. People wear random stuff and look unkept.
    What happened to patient care!! Way too much time spent by the front desk on the same reports printed out over and over. Days are spent on these strange reports that basically all mean about the same thing. Funny that everyone agrees that it is all about the same paperwork wasted by Printing, but no one does anything about it. I was not given Insurance benefit paperwork, important HR phone numbers, but we have to trash the environment with the same paperwork printed that gives the info in different ways.

    Advice to Management

    To make money you have to spend money, and that is not meant for you to buy smaller companies, it is meant that money needs to be spent on a computer system ( AKA...EMR) that really works. What I have seen is a major HIPPA and Joint Commission free for all and money maker.

    Pros

    Lots of great experience, fair pay, lots of overtime opportunities.

    Cons

    Management. They don't seem to care about the employees at all. Almost always understaffed and overworked. Rarely get any kind of recognition or thank you when it is clearly warranted, like picking up extra shifts, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your employees. Handle staffing.
