    Pros

    There is nothing that they provide that makes them standout differently in a positive way from any other company.

    Cons

    92% productivity is crazy if you really think you're going to give quality care. You can't have both. They expect point of service documentation but 1 computer for 3 therapists makes that impossible.
    Management does not care about quality or retention, only their numbers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend one full week as a therapist again and try to live by your own rules.
    Hire Rehab directors that actually know how to manage people and get rid of the ones that can't or don't. They are toxic to those that actually do the work.

    Pros

    There were no "pros" to working for this company.

    Cons

    You must either commit Medicare fraud or work off the clock in order to meet their unrealistic productivity requirements (92%).

    You must be willing to put your morals and ethics aside.

    In school, we are taught that clinicians should always determine an appropriate plan of care for each patient, including whether or not he or she is a candidate for therapy, how long treatment sessions should be, and when to discharge the patient. If you decide to work for this company, be prepared to forfeit any and all autonomy that you should have to make professional decisions regarding the care of your patients. They will demand that you pick up patients that are not appropriate for treatment. They will put most (if not all) of their patients at the highest RUG level (Medicare reimbursement level), regardless of actual patient need. When you decide that a patient has met max potential, and is ready for discharge, they will demand that you keep them on caseload, even insisting on switching to another therapist so they can bill for a few more weeks of therapy. If you object, they will threaten your job. Many of us were told that if we didn't want to follow their rules, then there were plenty of other therapists who would gladly take our job. This is the most unethical company I have ever worked for. I would quit this profession before working for them again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of this business if you can't muster enough morality to put your patients' needs at least on even ground with your profits. As more and more former employees report you to Medicare, hopefully you won't be in business much longer.

    I worked at Select Rehabilitation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The facilities Select contracted with were very clean and well run.

    Cons

    To meet the productivity standard a therapist has to do one of two things, break Medicare rules or work off the clock. I got pretty tired of working for free! If I would have averaged what I was paid and the actual hours worked, the pay would not have seemed so stellar. Patient care is ranked quite a few notches below productivity. Did I mention productivity is important to this company? You have to wait about 3-4 weeks for your first paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's sad to say but, I hope Medicare comes after companies like yours for unethical practices!! I don't believe your business practices will change otherwise.

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

    Pros

    They pay well compared to other companies. They have decent benefits. They support cooperative working with other disciplines.

    Cons

    They encourage unethical treatments, or support DORs that ask this of therapists. They change benefits despite what promised upon hire without notice. Micromanaged. HR is very rude and disrespectful to staff. Reimbursements documentation is frequently "lost" or "never received" or "misplaced" resulting in late reimbursement. Licensure fee never reimbursed despite policy stating it would be. Refuse to consider PTO requests in advance making vacation scheduling/purchases impossible then when they will consider requests there is not coverage. PTO forfeited upon resignation. No raise for 4+ years. Productivity and RUs are of sole importance over what is right for the patient. Insufficient laptops provided to ensure their productivity expectations are met. Very poor treatment of employees injured on the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Select could use to respect their therapists, increase wages with cost of living, abide by code of ethics, and have more realistic expectations of employees.

    I have been working at Select Rehabilitation full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have a great rehab manager who is a practicing therapist (i.e., has realistic expectations and understands the daily challenges therapists encounter in a SNF).

    Cons

    Poor work/life balance, productivity pressures, shrinking benefits, pay freeze, promises made upon hire but not necessarily kept, poor onsite resources

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider productivity standards, value clinical judgement over medicare dollars, reconsider CEU policies to enable therapists to obtain functional, applicable skills vs. tedious corporate-based documentation/reimbursement courses
