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

    Pros

    - Can transfer to other clinics based on position availability. Able to go from clinic to clinic to help out those that need staff.

    - Offer bonus incentive based on clinic's overall visit numbers and performance

    - Patients can transfer to other clinics at their own convenience.

    Cons

    - As a rehab tech working for 2.5 years, I received a small pay raise (1%) EVERY YEAR; not quarterly. I've heard other PT companies who were in the same position as me would received more than 1% raise and that was quarterly. The amount of work techs do in the clinic doesn't justify the wage -- they're essentially the backbone of every PT clinic. I hope they adjust this soon because techs should be paid AT LEAST $15/hour.

    - They care too much about numbers, numbers, and more numbers. I get that this field is very competitive and trying to get as many patients they can get but they have to consider patient care.

    Pros

    depends on the location. clinic director/ regional director. Hit or miss.

    Cons

    Used to emphasize continuing education. Has cut or frozen all reimbursement but emphasizes the "ATI WAY" which is supposed to support customer care.
    -Everything based on metrics now, visits per day, units/units , units. How many units you can bill a patient and what type of units. IE......supervisors will try to dictate what type of units you bill the patient you are treating. Um, that is called unethical/ fraudulent and is all about squeezing every dollar out of every patient now. Have tied this into the bonus structure as well.

    Stay away, triple booking, poor support, too much too list. Makes you want to reconsider your career choice

    Advice to Management

    Be careful with your new practices, not only will good therapists leave, you are toeing the line with fraudulent billing practices.

    Stop expanding and bring that "mom and pop" feeling back to the clinics.

    Pros

    Very organized and try to instill a positive culture.

    Cons

    Do nothing for AT's. They don't treat us as medical professionals. We are basically marketing tools for them. No advancement. No matter how good of a clinician you are, AT's are viewed as lower class employees. They aren't doing the profession any favors. Just look at their turn over rate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop with the constant mission statement mantra and meaningless excitement. I would rather management be straightforward and tell us AT's what they want from us. PT referrals. Everything else is secondary.
