    I have been working at Aegis Therapies full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Vacation accrual is decent. Negotiate your pay high up front bc you won’t get a raise. Benefits are awful, but they are offered.

    Cons

    They’ll ask you to cover your own shifts if you want to use PTO. Some expectations of working off the clock aren’t verbally communicated, but they are implied.

    Advice to Management

    What is best for the pt isn’t always best for the bottom line. Take care of your employees and they’ll take care of you.

    I worked at Aegis Therapies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co workers, free CEUs. Benefits, DOR is good.

    Cons

    No appreciation for thier employees, they only care about the bottom dollar not the Therapist or patients. No rasises even though expectations change frequently. Good PTO but hard to get time off due to no PRN help and they wont hire any. Work every holiday with no holiday pay incentive. Disorganized with newly hired employees, kinda just give em a computer tell them to watch the training and thats it. Do not contribute to 401k. Constant issues with I T.

    Advice to Management

    Quit being stingy with your employees and show some appreciation for them once in a while!!!!! A little goes a long way...

    Pros

    They allow flexible schedule, have good salary and okay benefits

    Cons

    It's all about the Units, not the patients
    Have to be willing to do some of the work on your own time or you'll never meet your productivity no matter what the company tells you.
    They bought a bunch of used equipment from a gym and make us use it with geriatric patients. How many 80 year old patients can you position on a leg press?
    Not full time even though they tell you it is. More like 4/5 time.

    Pros

    PTO if you have coverage! Flexible hours, great teammates and we have a good DOR but is pushed to the max

    Cons

    This company has definitely gone down hill over past several years when looking for employee satisfaction. They have not given raises in approx 6 years, no match 401k, and now with new workday system payroll can't even cut a check right if you are working home care! Upper management is not concerned for employees but how numbers are being met for a bonus for them?! No stipend or incentive to work holidays! Listen to your employees and instead of offering sign on bonuses to get people to come work for you pay your current staff and keep us happy! I am seriously considering a switch with better opportunities!

    Advice to Management

    See above your current employees are unsatisfied!

    Pros

    License renewal reimbursement, free CEU courses, CEU reimbursement up to $500, good work environment, fair use of PTO, 401K available

    Cons

    Expectations of therapists are constantly changing and typically increasing (i.e. Productivity, documentation, technology usage) with no acknowledgement or compensation for therapists positively adapting to changes. Employees verbally told "you're easily replaced" when requesting a pay raise. Made new grad pay rate on the first day with the company until 3 years later on the last day with the company. Making the same amount hourly as a new grad and having 3 years of experience is unacceptable and shows how much Aegis does not value it's employees and the work they do.

    Advice to Management

    When a rehab manager requests a pay raise for an employee(s), the request should be taken more seriously and actually addressed. If pay raises are in a "freeze" because the company is losing money, that information should be presented to the employees not swept under the rug and the requests ignored. It doesn't make sense that therapists are receiving exceptional performance reviews and then no compensation for their exceptional work and dedication to the profession. A shrug of the corporate shoulders is unacceptable.
