No opinion of CEO

Pros

Good business experience. Fairly good benefits. Help in marketing your practice. Good value to trips to Houston for experience with other partners. As far as corporate models to work for - Concentra, Physio, Hospital based, it is one of the better ones if you can deal with a non-compete and dont wont to go out on your own.

Cons

They don't honor there own contracts. You really have no say in your clinic, despite what they may tell you. They will compete against you locally b/c their focus is on profits and ease of management. Takes too long for a decision to be made. I used to joke that if I called them on Friday to tell them my clinic was on fire, they would wait until Friday after they have their corporate meetings to call to tell me to call they fire department.

Advice to Management

Don't let your corporate mantra ruin it for your local clinics who thrive on their own reputations. You need to base your partners more, b/c after a few years you wind up having the same risk as you would owning your own clinic with not as much of a reward. Remember news travels fast in the PT world.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Good Health Insurance and benefits package. Competive Salary (average) for our market. Good patient mix.

    Cons

    Corporate structure is a waste, they have lost their ability to make decisions locally b/c of their size. Turnded to be no better than my former employer as far as numbers crunching decisions. Incentive plans are unrealistic.

    Advice to Management

    Give the local directors more say. I know you have 300 plus clinics but what is good for Houston is not always whats good for your small town clinic.

    I have been working at U.S. Physical Therapy full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people. The flexibility. The leadership. The willingness to collaborate. The proactive approach to evolving with the times/industry. I feel the stability here with my job and with the company.

    Cons

    Wish people working within departments didn't believe that voicing their ideas on improving a process or service is a scary/bad thing. Speak up.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure people always know how much you care, and how important you think they are to the company.
