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

    Pros

    Core values and the people I work with are great. Very cohesive team. Very positive energy . Solid benefits. Jean Friday and cookie Friday. Free snacks passed out and available in HR.

    Cons

    Work life balance because of feeling the need to always wanting to participate in the extra committees that require additional work hours on top of an already long day.

    Advice to Management

    Stay current with salary trends . The market adjusts rapidly and it does not always fit rigidly into an annual budget that was set 18 months prior

    I worked at HealthSouth full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The were few Pros working for this company; however, salary and benefits were above average for this area.

    Cons

    All departments need to work together instead of trying to tear each other down. Management does not abide by the ethics of the company and condones mistreat of staff by other staff.

    Pros

    Benefits are decent. 501l match to 5 percent

    Cons

    Poor management. Don’t care if you are short staffed and don’t try to fill call ins. Not a rehab anymore just a nursing home. There is a lot of favoritism to certain employees, and good luck to the rest of us. Supervisor s don’t help if you are behind.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house and do your job! All you think about is the budget and your bonuses. Hire some real supervisors

    Pros

    This company is very organized and you pretty know what to expect for a day to day schedule. Their system allows therapists to really work with and develop relationships with patients.

    Cons

    You really have to stay on top of making sure you get all of a patient's hours in even if they do not need or cannot handle 3 hours of therapy.

    Pros

    Great food services manager
    Good benefits package

    Cons

    Upper level management in the hospital wasn't great.
    Not a lot of teamwork between departments. Always seemed like the Nursing and Physical Therapy staffs were against the kitchen workers.

    Pros

    Weekend Warrior pay is 34/hr, otherwise pay less than average like 26/hr. Working with PT is great but definitely this experience not worth all drama and high nurse:patient ratio.

    Cons

    Be prepared to have 6 to 11 patients at a time. CEO was walked out. Management is terrible. RUN AWAY.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your nurses. Improve nurse: patient ratio. Management is a joke. The types of patients here are not rehab appropriate! Every shift patient crashes because no one listens to the nurses!
