Pros

Your co-workers, for the most part, are nice people. In most positions, there is job stability. The goal of the company, caring for patients and their families, is something to make you proud of your work. In the right circumstances, it does feel like more than just a job.

Cons

There is no leadership. They never hold anyone accountable. They make arbitrary rules whenever the mood strikes them, but they never follow-up on whether it accomplishes anything. Employees are treated differently based on which group of people they hang out with. There is a class-conscious atmosphere, and the attitude of "it's not my job" is rampant.

Advice to Management

Apply the rules equally. When you put a new policy in place, get feedback from the people that will be affected first. Then follow-up on a regular basis. Communicate, communicate, communicate. Your employees are not the enemy.

    Pros

    Great flexibility in work type, management easy to work under, positive environment. The level of care our clinical team provides is unmatched.

    I can't really think of any major cons. LifeCare has been an amazing place to work for. I would recommend this place to any prospective employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. The current leadership team has many innovative solutions, and is highly motivated.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at LifeCare Hospitals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a friendly environment

    Cons

    Dictatorial regime.
    No job security with very little staff appreciation except the occasional scraps under the table.
    The CEO is trying to build his own empire.

    Advice to Management

    Our CEO came form another facility that is closing, since then he has been replacing the current staff with his old staff at the facility. It is no secret. Job security doesn't exist.
