    Pros

    Patient-care focused, teaching/learning environment, overall good benefits, excellent amount of time off for clinical staff, pension plan

    Cons

    -Not-for-profit organization = limited budgets, limited support staff
    -Breakdown of communication between staff and management as facility continues to grow/expand

    Advice to Management

    More consideration of staff feedback when establishing budgets- support staff (aides) is necessary to facilitate optimal team function and budget should accommodate this; consider key elements to promote staff retention and minimize employee burnout

    I have been working at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital full-time

    Pros

    If you are looking to increase your knowledge and work experience, this is the place. Everyone is there to help.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off. Has the tendency to micromanage staff especially new staff. Be prepared to have people talk about you and everything you do.

    Advice to Management

    Finding a way to support staff development and making the staff feel like they can grow are key without micromanaging.

    I worked at Burke Rehabilitation Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice looking, and groomed campus

    Cons

    Management is inefficient and unprofessional. Management doesn't focus on work, or growth of revenue, or improving the department, but rather on telling staff what type of snacks they're allowed to eat, or writing up staff whom they don't like for small things like coming in 1 minute late, or telling staff they can only drink water in the morning. Salary is very low for most people, with only expense of living increase per year for most. No bonuses. No room for growth. Very expensive health insurance.

    Advice to Management

    Management should shift their focus to renegotiating better contracts, improving work conditions. Management should not base their evaluations of employees based on personal liking due to race, disability, or nationality, but should base their evaluation of an employee based on performance, and potential.

    Pros

    AMAZING co-workers that support each other; friendly atmosphere

    Cons

    low pay, great number of days for time off BUT impossible to actually get the time off; limited training opportunities; career ladder means nothing - jumping through hoops for little compensation; riding on the coat tails of a reputation from years ago but things have changed ALOT; high turnover rate of staff

    Advice to Management

    you ask for feedback but don't take it; so many senior level staff have left and still nothing is happening to try to fix this, instead excuses offered - head is in the sand; staff is unhappy and the remedy is an ice cream sundae

    Pros

    Compensation. You will meet some pretty nice people working there outside of the department and the patients are amazing.

    Cons

    Managers, staff. Be prepared to deal with discrimination especially if you aren't a family member of one of the top managers.

    Advice to Management

    Be more professional...confidentiality is also something they need to work on.
