I worked at Excel Physical Therapy (More than a year)
This job was a great stepping stone in my career. I had a phenominal clinical director and the PT's were all amazing too. The small clinic made us feel more like a "family" and that really helped us perform better for our patients. There is always training too if you need it. The benefits were also pretty good. I wasn't married at that time, so it helped me and I have some medical issues.
The pay was not livable. It was ok to start out but a 1% raise is not anything a person with a family can work with. I eventually had to leave a company and team I love to accept a terrible job just because of money. I think the "clique" in corporate makes it tough for people to want to reach out. There is definitely a divide that you can feel, but we all get the job done.
Advice to Management
Overall, this was a great experience. There is a lot, A LOT of turn over in the PSR department. Perhaps even the smallest amount of pay increase would help with that. I realize that's so much easier said than done, but the benefits were good. Maybe try to do some team-building things with the girls from corporate and the PSR's so there isn't that disconnect. Otherwise, again, this was a phenomenal company.
