    I worked at Hanger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had some great coworkers and made lifelong friends
    My supervisor recognized my work and accomplishments, and made me feel valued
    I felt I was fairly compensated
    The mission and purpose of the company is fulfilling
    Not a lot of extra hours required or needed outside of 8-5

    Cons

    I didn’t feel there was any opportunity for growth in my position
    Yearly bonuses were dependent on success of the company and were not always given

    Pros

    Very nice facilities and staff.

    Cons

    Not much organization. A lot of tasks are being delegated to people instead of people who should be doing them based on job responsibilities, which means some employees can't make the most of their time because they're doing work someone else with the proper job title should be doing.

    Pros

    Fantastic mission. It's the right size company in that it's large enough to invest in infrastructure, systems, research & development, and business support. There's complexity that allows exposure to a wide variety of business scenarios. At the same time, it's not so big that you feel like a cog in the machine. You can have contribute and have real impact.

    Cons

    Some groups are still understaffed. They are getting there but we could get there faster if we had more hands on deck.

    Advice to Management

    We have great people here who are deeply committed. Many want to do more and and could go deeper but they lack bandwidth. Continue to invest in your people. They are the heartbeat of this company.

    I have been working at Hanger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Hanger is a sizable company (5,000 ee's) but you feel like a large family.

    The work Hanger does for its patients is truly amazing, my outlook was truly impacted when I had the opportunity to meet patients and hear their stories.

    Great opportunity to work in a corporate headquarters in Austin, especially at the Domain.

    Cons

    It is challenging to complete a restatement of the financials but we are nearly there.

    There are natural growing pains that comes with the growth we've experienced, however I look at that as opportunity.

    I'd consider us fairly lean which can be challenging at times, but you have plenty of opportunities to make a difference if you want them.

    I worked at Hanger full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It's a job. When jobs are in demand bc of the economy, it's a job.

    Cons

    Where. do i start. Upper management has "problems" telling the truth on time to the SEC when the company takes a loss of income bc of the healthcare law changes. Ofcourse, no one goes to jail. Martha Stewart wasn't so lucky. Employees are then "trained" on a myriad of Ethical and moral violations, most of which are committed by the same persons who crashed this companies stock price. They break the law and then tell us not too. What BS. Bonuses are a thing of the past. Managers pocket most if not all. New rule to schedule a delivery date the minute you meet a new patient is idiotic. Who is physcic enough to know when this one patients item will be ready for delivery? WTF? Managements attempt to generate even more revenue to pocket. The company bleeds every last penny of work out of its workers who never see any of it in the way of bonuses. If I didn't know better, someone in the uppers is about to pull an Enron and leave the co. broke.

    Advice to Management

    Pay all your employees fairly and equally not just your good ole boys! Stop being greedy and be realistic when you develope new rules.
