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

    Pros

    Working staff are great workers, friendly, and they get their jobs done. I feel more comfortable attending work here than I have anywhere else in the past. I also feel free to speak my mind.

    Cons

    It sometimes is hard to get all my hours, however, I can understand due to the nature of the profession.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Aegis Therapies (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good training and support. High productivity standards, but I think that is the same with most companies. Good benefits, but they don't seem to give raises.

    Cons

    High productivity standards. No raises. It is difficult to get time off approved. The hours very depending on census. You are required to travel to other facilities.

    I have been working at Aegis Therapies full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The company has a good benefit package and PDOs are good. The people I have worked with have been great and we're all easy to work with. No drama! Flexing days was easy and a nice option as well.

    Cons

    No payed holidays and if you decide to leave it will be difficult to get your PDO hours before you leave.

    Advice to Management

    Consider some payed holiday or at least offer time and a half for working them.

    Pros

    Everyone that I work with is super nice the onboarding process went smoothly and the recruiters and hr answered all of my questions. Overall wonderful company

    Cons

    I don't have any cons at the moment the only thing i can say is it took awhile for me to get into the system which really wasn't a big deal.

    Advice to Management

    None at the moment just continue to keep customer sastifaction a main priority and listen to employee feed back.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, great coworkers

    Cons

    Lack of communication between DORS for staffing purposes leads to not enough work in one building to having to call off staff in another. Too much focus on productivity and not clinical care of patient needs. Home health pay needs to be looked at as well not comparable to other agencies!!

    Advice to Management

    See above. Also consider paying your current employees better thru raises (has not happened in 5 or more years) instead of bonuses for new employees and directors. No wonder there is turnover.

    I worked at Aegis Therapies full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent benefits and flexible hours.

    Cons

    Started off with basically no training at all. Then, only a couple of weeks after I was hired, Aegis ended the contract with the facility and gave us notice that day, that we no longer had a job. I was hired while their were problems with a contract and then laid-off with no warning.

    Advice to Management

    Don't hire new employees if there are problems with the contract that could cause employees to be laid off in their first month of work.

    I have been working at Aegis Therapies full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great co workers and lots of clinical education. Flexible schedule and awesome co workers. There is a fair amount wPTO and have never been or seen anyone denied time off

    Cons

    Lack of time to engage in the clinical education because of the daily micromanaging of productivity and efficiency. AVPs should put themselves in the life of direct care
    Therapist again.

    Advice to Management

    Shift back to clinical focus and consider making the DOR an hourly position to eliminate the 8 hour requirement that penalizes the rest of the
    Team!
