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

Pros

The salary is based on experience and education. The hours are flexible.

Cons

The caseload is not guaranteed and if you don't have a caseload you are sent home without pay. this is not explained at interview. Essentially you are paid as a full time employee but you are actually per diem worker

Advice to Management

The new hires need to be well trained before placed in the work area/with the patients

    "Unethical, horrible work environment. Don't respect their therapists. All about the bottom dollar"

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good co-workers. Can't think of really anything else. Good continuing Ed pay.

    Cons

    Terrible upper management. They will act like they care about you but in the end it is all about the bottom dollar. No raises in over 4 years. Horrible medical benefits. They like to put PTA/COTA/ techs in program director positions to save money and they know that they can "train" these assistants to provide unethical RUG levels and med b patients on therapy. They see the frail elderly as a way to make money. Area managers provide no support. All they do is sit at home in front of their computers crunching numbers and complaining that rugs and med b aren't High enough. It's funny when you call your area manager and her kids are crying in the background while she is "working".

    Advice to Management

    You are losing all of your long-time, loyal, ethical employees. The problem starts with your management. Check what your ADO's actually do as well as your PD's. Treat your employees with respect. See each patient as more than a ultra high category or med b unit.

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

    Pros

    I was lucky enough to work with the most ethical, compassionate therapists.

    Cons

    Focus on productivity, not much time or encouragement for continuing education, 2 years without a raise however productivity standards remain/increase to higher levels, and at current contract end with staff being laid off, HR was absent in transition to new jobs or unemployment.

    Advice to Management

    You should pay attention to the news around you and make sure that you support ethical treatment of clients, not just more minutes for larger payments. And it is time to recognize, support and pay those who are making the money for you.
