    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule, good benefits, although PTO scale could be better, there are some good employees that do go all out for a great patient experience

    Cons

    Not much growth unless you’re a therapist or IT...no training/tuition offered to expand to other opportunities within company. Management needs to be properly trained on how to effectively communicate with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Don’t punish the ones at the bottom just because things were not efficiently rolled out the correct way. Many ppl were fired bc of business practices not aligned with success for the company but the company also dropped the ball on many important factors that GREATLY affected the income of the company. Stop opening so many clinics without solidifying the ones already operating are doing so efficiently. INCREASE PAY. Maybe implement internships or tuition reimbursement to promote growth within company.

    Try to establish better management within clinics before opening up so many in a short time span.

    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible scheduling, good work experience, patients are pleasant for the most part and good exposure to a variety to insurances and patient processing.

    Cons

    National company without much actual support for the clinics, even though they preach support. Corporate mentality where you disappear into the folds of the company - so you feel like you are invisible and insignificant. ATI in some ways is growing too fast and cant keep up with taking care of its people.

    Advice to Management

    Try to focus more on the employee at every level instead of pushing your agenda onto everyone else. Take constructive criticism and don't take it personal when your employees give feedback. Accept that even though this company is an established company, it can still evolve and grow and learn.

    Pros

    Great company that tries to show that they value their employees. We were kept in the loop during company changes. I learned a lot about various areas in healthcare through this job

    Cons

    Many people stated that they felt it was hard to move up in the company.

    Advice to Management

    Need to find a way to respond to issues more efficiently, we had a problem that took 8 months to be addressed. By giving employees the ability to adapt quicker changes could have been made that would have saved the company money.

    I have been working at ATI Physical Therapy full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    They have reasonable caseload expectations (10-12 patients/day). Hour-long initial evaluations are scheduled. They provide a Medbridge subscription for continuing education as well as HEP access with cool patient app.

    Cons

    Despite the 10-12 patients/day expectations, there is no hesitation with filling your schedule to the brim. The region I work in had many clinics that were acquired by ATI. There is very little company culture in the clinic/area I am in. The communication is very unorganized—specifically with regards to weather events. They have cut down on continuing education allowances (same dollar amount but greater restrictions on use and requires additional approval processes). They promise to bring in continuing education, but there is little of that, and not everyone in the area is notified of these external classes. The company also does not provide much administrative support to small clinics. Expect part-time help only with a 2-Therapist clinic. This lack of support makes full 14-patient days very difficult to maintain quality of care. Mentoring that was promised in the beginning has not panned out.

    Advice to Management

    Extra clinic support (i.e., front desk help full-time and/or PT tech help part-time) will help strengthen the quality of care given by the therapists and is worth the (small) price in the short-term to provide lasting benefit to the patient, who may then tell his/her friends about their great experiences at ATI. Lack of support for therapists provides a quick recipe for burnt out PTs. Provide additional mentoring to create company culture and improve the quality of therapists.
