    I worked at U.S. Physical Therapy full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    It's a job and most therapists really do care about what's best for the patients

    Cons

    There's no room for improvement unless you go from being receptionist to doing billing and it stops there. Working alongside the physical therapists, there is such a stress on them to see enough patients to make the corporation enough money. To corporate, they aren't humans who need help, they're an account number in their system they can bill. The stress on the therapists and the stress that's put on the biller or receptionist is not worth the meager salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the reason why patients return is because they feel they're time is valued and their needs are the highest priority, not what insurance they have and how quickly they can be swept out the door.

    I worked at U.S. Physical Therapy

    Pros

    Treatment autonomy, mostly orthopedic pts and no weekends

    Cons

    Despite 16 yrs experience, 8 in spotts mediicine OP clinic, only paid $75,000/yr for 60+ hour week. They attempt to entice you with completely unattainable bonus program. Furthermore, have to see 3 pts/hr more concerned with pushing paper, marketing and administrative duties than building positive treatment outcome refferal base.
    Also, PTAs in upper management dictating how to properly treat and manange patient load when they do visit clinic.
    Although salaried, treat you like an hourly time clock worker uf come in a little late, sfter working 10 hours previous day, if have cancellation on the books . Truly worst work environment in my 16 years as PT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let positive RX outcomes drive patient refferals not cheap marketing ploys or appeasing greedy wotk comp managers. Also, back up therapist against poor upper management scrutiny. Basically, if pts are improving quickly, safely, effectively and referring doctor is pleased, do not fixate and on minor administrative concerns.

    I worked at U.S. Physical Therapy (less than a year)

    Pros

    I wish I could think of just one pro. I'm trying...trying...trying...NOPE!

    Cons

    Unethical business practices.
    Micromanagement to the extreme.
    Low pay.
    Treats employees like slaves
    No training to come up to speed on their inefficient documentation system.
    USpH is a self serving company that doesn't deserve the chance to exploit people with the skill level and compassion that physical therapists have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find another business to exploit workers other than physical therapists. You do not deserve us!

    I worked at U.S. Physical Therapy full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I had a very supportive boss but she had little support from upper mgmt. Paid time off is accrued according to yrs of work with the company and must be used each calendar yr and doesn't carry over. Good benefits with regards to cont ed.

    Cons

    Poor pay levels with very few raises. Bonus program is a joke; almost impossible to attain. Two of the five areas of your annual evaluation you have NO control over and shouldn't even be considered.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share the love with the lower level employees who are actually doing the work. It's not always about the numbers.

    I have been working at U.S. Physical Therapy full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The therapist I currently work with is very professional and cares about the patient,
    The paid time off was good, insurance good

    Cons

    Horrible management, only concerned about the mighty dollar, micro managing to the extreme, very low morale among employees, Dishonesty from the local management up through the corporate level.. NO concern for employee ethical issues. This company operates on a very LOW ethical plain. Pay raises basically non existent, worked there 8 years, time for review comes (if you even get one) and suddenly they are barely making any money so no pay raises again!!! Current owner creates a hostile work environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try taking an ethics course... stop creating a hostile work environment.

    Pros

    Pay was competitive, should have asked for more.

    Cons

    Everything. Documentation, billing, marketing, management all terrible. I second the opinion of another poster, it's a good ole boys club. They tell you one thing and do another only looking out for themselves. Couldn't care less about pt care. All about the $$$. Disappointed..

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try listening to your therapists..

    Pros

    really enjoy people in my department, everyone is friendly. No issue with leaving early or taking time off if needed for family or personal issues.

    Cons

    low pay, no room for advancement, unless you are in operations, your voice isn't heard; don't increase staff to keep up with increased workload so the same people do twice as much work and are expected to get same results

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to the ideas and requests for help from your staff
