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

    Pros

    ATI has experienced a lot of recent growth and is scaling for the future. Management on both the Operations and Sales side are fantastic. Many tenured employees in the Chicago area. Therapists are also generally very good at what they do, and wiling to work together with the Sales Team to reach common goals. The organization is still small enough to where you have the opportunity to interface with C-Level management and allow for great exposure at many different levels across the company.

    Cons

    I feel this could be viewed as both a pro and a con, the current climate is one of change. They are implementing many great new resources, and putting a lot of time and effort into scaling the sales organization, but with that comes a learning curve. If you can look at the big-picture, it's all for the better.

    I worked at ATI Physical Therapy full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned about the clinic side of physical therapy.
    Since asked to do every thing in the clinic, you become familiar with office assistant skills and also physical therapy skills

    Cons

    The work is too much for only $10 an hour. It really is not worth it if you have bills to pay, unless you have another job that pays well.
    ATI isn’t very diverse as much as they should be.
    It seems as though they don’t care too much about the patients.
    The environment just seemed off

    I worked at ATI Physical Therapy full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Career opportunities
    Great team at the clinic level
    Great vision on the paper
    Nice updated neat clinics
    High expectations from the staff
    This applies more to years back

    Cons

    One down relationship vs we need you and you need us
    Lack of transparency
    Have to bag for increase in salary for everyone that earns it
    High expectations only toward employees but not of themselves: we need to make sure not to waste money on granola bars, gloves on the clinic level while HR is building new expensive gym and bar
    Expectation that employees will volunteer their time for free: most meeting scheduled at times when we are supposed to be with family
    I was a director and would appreciate if my staff had a formal annual review of me as I had to complete of them- back to equal relationship

    Advice to Management

    You need people and they need you- admit it, say it and demonstrate it.

    I worked at ATI Physical Therapy full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a good company to work for if you are a new-grad PT because they do offer a lot of Continuing Education Reimbursement and invest in new employee mentorship. I also enjoyed working with all of my co-workers and enjoyed the “team” atmosphere.

    Cons

    This company offers much lower compensation to its clinicians when compared to other companies in the area. Despite the lower salary, they often expect employees to overbook their schedules and come in early/stay late to see patients. It is also expected that you volunteer to work Saturdays (especially during holiday weeks) to make up for the days the clinic is closed. They introduced a new employee bonus system but took it away when too many therapists were actually earning it. This company has the resources to be a great place to work but they seem to care more about profit than they do quality of care for patients and quality of life for their employees.

    Advice to Management

    Respect your clinicians as the professionals they are and provide a better work/life balance. Try to offer better incentives/compensation so that you can keep the clinicians who have experience versus constantly hiring new grads to replace those employees who are burnt out.

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

    Pros

    - A large organization that offers great benefits- Medical, dental, vision, 401k, 3+ weeks of vacation to start, great maternity/paternity leave.
    - Clinical Excellence- courses, career advancement opportunities, growth
    - A true team to work with each day. It is like a family!

    Cons

    Any that I have seen were already in the process of being addressed before I brought them up to my leader. Very responsive leadership!


  10. "Good company, just huge"

    Pros

    Good support due to corporate departments — my experience I’ve worked w wonderful co-workers.

    Cons

    Pay is middle of the road. If you don’t have a good regional or clinic director it can feel very corporate like.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more incentives and support for your staff. Christmas parties, various “fun weeks” that don’t happen any more, raises or acknowledgement of the hours and time staff puts in.
