    Pros

    Coworkers and patients. Hands down. A great field.

    Cons

    Pay your people! Young clinicians leave immediately to work for competition and be paid appropriately. Invest in your staff, reward the ones that are good. This doesn't happen. No raises for anyone company wide For over a year now. 401ks match will now be annual and depend on how "we did that year" this is pathetic. Clinical decisions are taking from the hands of the practitioners and put into non clinical hands to be decided. The patient is considered last.

    Advice to Management

    You continually lost good employees and allow absolute disasters to continue working. The good folks that are left are so burned out they are interviewing elsewhere, quit, or just sad and defeated. Oas are leaving left and right. The acm was fired.
    Transparency. Closing office doors and not telling people what is going. Clarity. Your employees think you are pocketing the extra money by not hiring replacements, combining rolls, and not paying people well. No one knows what is truly going on and everyone feels very under appreciated.

    Pros

    True belief in the Hanger vision - Empowering Human Potential Together. Each of us feel that we contribute in some way to the patient care!

    Cons

    Balancing priorities within multiple business units is probably my only "con" The turnover has subsided and there really isn't anything else that I could list as a con!

    Advice to Management

    Stay put! Hanger is great with the senior leadership we have now! Keep up the great work! We appreciate you!

    Pros

    You get to help patients.

    Cons

    Where do I start. My Boss is a greedy, selfish, arrogant, narcissist. He hands himself large bonuses, when and if we actually get any, RARE, and gives the other 10 practitioners the crumbs. Has the SEC finished its investigation into the false and late reporting? The stock plummets and we catch the "crap" for it. It's not our fault the leadership ran the co, into the ground. Poor benefits, no advancement unless you have friends in high places, poor pay-esp. if your a female. OMG, The boss and I had lunch, he told me how much the women are underpaid. He all but laughed that every dollar he saves by not increasing their salaries can go into bonus increases, etc. Its a feather in his cap. Talked to one of the technicians, he is almost paid as much as the female practitioners with years of service. Like the other reviewer said, end of month everyone loses their minds. Sell, Sell, Sell. Sounds like "Cramer" on mad money. If you see a pos. review, assume the boss wrote it.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people, Pay your WOMEN, Fix the benefits, stop the SEC crap.

    Pros

    Serving prosthetic and orthopedic patients

    Cons

    No defined career path for employees, silo'd leadership, zero accountability as leadership blames ex-employees for systemic problems, vendors get blamed when projects miss the mark, execs are more worried about perception instead of profitability, corporate culture = monthly pizza party

    Advice to Management

    you can't blame everything on ex-employees take accountability and fix what is not working instead of ignoring it

    Great people to work with, location, and amazing product.

    tone at the top, culture, red tape, inconsistent procedures. Contributions of employees are not valued or recognized.

    Advice to Management

    Mission and values of Hanger should match actions of those in charge. Value contributions of employees.

    Pros

    What we do for our customers is amazing. Clinicians can operate a clinic;small or large and have the backing of a corporation that is serious about doing the right thing. Pay is competitive. Most small clinics can't offer the same level of benefits, vacation, 401(k), bonus. Lots of research and forward thinking going into making the clinics top notch.

    Cons

    Rough couple of years no thanks to past leadership. We are currently paying for the sins of the past. Systems are catching up to where they should be to support this size of company. RVPs don't seem to be on the same page or operate at the same level.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on the path to clinical excellence. Keep focusing on the pay conundrum. Get those new systems in place to make the clinic jobs easier. Get some rest and forge on!

    Pros

    Working directly with patients to see the results of your interactions. Watching the patients reactions when they receive a device that changes their life.

    Cons

    The benefit package could use an overhaul. Long hours of work followed by more hours of paperwork. Management always pushing for more sales. The last week of each month we are pressured to come up with sales numbers that may not be obtainable.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to reduce the amount of paperwork. I'm sure that there are technical solutions available somewhere.

    Best boss I've ever had. No micromanagement, belief and commitment to employees in the Data Governance department. Excellent opportunities for learning and growth. Co-workers are all team players and enjoy our jobs as well as our abilities to work with each other.

    Cons

    Took a long time to convert from contractors to employees. Lots of last minute tasks for quarter ends but are committed to finding solutions to issues.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in converting more contractors to employees and hurry it up or we are going to lose some great folks!

    Cons

    Month to month, quarter to quarter and year end pushing. Profit driven business model

    Advice to Management

    Be more open to suggestions from lower level employees, we are the front line. Keep up the out reach work, it was great to meet with Sam Liang when he visited NoCal.
