    Pros

    Not sure if this is a pro, but if you stay with the company long enough as an Analyst and threaten to leave, you will most likely get promoted to a management position.

    Cons

    Low pay
    Micromanaged constantly
    Expected to complete tasks that have nothing to do with your job title, just because the responsible department doesn't feel like doing their own job.
    Most IS positions are expected to be an extension of the helpdesk.
    Not allowed to work from home.
    After hours on call can be a nightmare.
    Other department managers try and delegate projects and tasks to those outside of their department.
    Project specifications aren't discussed prior to adding said project to your "project list"
    Company keeps hiring managers, but doesn't fix the problems with the current ones.
    Company continually expands, but does not expand their IS Staff that is expected to support the hospital staff.
    it is a rare occurrence that a project is well thought out.
    HMS/Medhost is a horrible application that we are expected to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop delegating projects/tasks to employees that do not work in your department. Discuss those with their managers first to let them decide where it will fit in with the rest of the on going projects and deadlines.

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I liked my co-workers and to some extent it was flexible.

    Cons

    Business was very slow and expectations were unrealistic. No one listened to us no matter how many times we made suggestions on ways to improve things it was always business as usual. Local CEO and HR were unprofessional and upper management is not minding the store. Local CEO was cheap with raises and low balled new employees. People got fired a lot.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of incompetent CEOs (I'm not talking about the company CEO as a whole he's way removed from the local employment sites I'm talking about the CEO of the locale their are several hundred nationwide).

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great to watch how people recover! Great pay, Excellent Therapy Team.

    Cons

    Need to work on team playing! Respecting all employee as one not cause of there titles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respecting all employee as one not cause of there titles. If the work is hard are harder make sure the pay matches.
    "Just don't tell the employee you appreciate them show them as well". Always listen to the person who is doing the work hands on, they can give you more info then anyone.

    Former Employee - Anonymous in Middleburg Heights, OH
    Former Employee - Anonymous in Middleburg Heights, OH

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

    Pros

    Not really any pros. Salary used to be, but at 2% across the board, embarrassing. Some employees really care but are not recognized.

    Cons

    The administration. If not in the clich, you're worthless. If in the clich, you can take hour bkfst and an hour lunch. Ran better before Select took over. You were recognized for a job well done, not here, not now. Leadership team is a joke. Talk about the CEO behind his back to other employees. Sexual harassment happens here and upper mgmt sweeps it under the rug. HR is a joke. Didn't answer phone as scheduler, still don't as HR

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regional VP or President should talk to the common worker. There are problems at this site. When President or VP come for a visit, CEO or CNO wisk them away so no one can talk to them.

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (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.

    Former Employee - Registered Nurse in Sylvania, OH

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The money was competitive for the area, but it is not worth the stress and risk to your professional license.

    Cons

    Management is a disaster. Policies change daily. HR doesn't return phone calls or emails, lies then denies it. They went through 5 different administrations in 6 years. Can't keep a good, honest, caring CEO or nurse manager. Communication is non-existent for the most part. Profit and keeping beds filled is their priority. They don't care about staff or if there is even enough staff to take care of the patients as long as the beds are filled and the money is coming in. Patient ratios are unrealistic and unsafe. No one can be trusted, everyone is encouraged to throw each other under the bus creating a hostile environment. They rule by intimidation, lies and deceit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put patient care and employee's first.

    I have been working at Select Medical

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to gain a lot of experience in different areas. Will work with many different software packages and applications.

    Cons

    Try to do too much with too little. Understaffed, which leads to inducing many of their own problems. Poor project management, lack of communication and interaction between departments. Salary could be better.

    I have been working at Select Medical full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Unfortunately, there are no longer any Pros. At one time money was a pro, but now the max increase is 2%.

    Cons

    Deceit is huge. Everyone, regardless of title, is willing to throw everyone and anyone under the bus. Even HR endorses awful practices. If you are willing to drink the koolaid, you're good though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more knowledgeable about what is going on at every level. Think before acting. Make sure people in management positions should actually be there. Stop abusing good employees and rewarding cancerous ones.
