    I have been working at HealthSouth (More than a year)

    Pros

    I came from a company that was not transparent with their employees and did not motivate nor recognize their staff members. HealthSouth has not only made me feel like a valued employee, but I feel like I am a part of a family. They focus on identifying top notch rehab equipment to produce the best outcomes for our patients as well as top of the line technology for the employees to excel in their role. I feel like I matter at HealthSouth and I am not just an employee ID number.

    Cons

    I would like to see more innovative processes continue to be put in place. Continue to think outside of the box which will set us apart from our competitors!

    Advice to Management

    Continue to recognize your employees for their achievements and hard work.

    Pros

    There were amazing coworkers and staff to collaborate with. The equipment allowed for expanded activities of daily living and IADL experiences.

    Cons

    I wish there were more opportunities and passion to think outside the box. Sometimes it felt like staff were stuck in the same routines with little motivation for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate employees to go above and beyond!

    I have been working at HealthSouth full-time

    Pros

    Pay is good. Clean.

    Cons

    Upper management need be wiped out and rehired. Major favortism depending on who's behind your kissing. Not only hired to do your job, but everyones elses and if you don't, get ready to get a nasty email from the CNO. They bring in patients that should not ever be considered for rehabilitation, but it is only to fill beds. From thenoutside it looks like a great facility, but when you get into the staffing, everybodys against everybody-and no one is to be trusted.

    Advice to Management

    Fire ALL management and start over-preferably with more male staff. They do not play favorites as much as women. And are more likely to be fair. Need to be more worried about how well the staff is doing instead of penalizing when someone is a patient advocate. This place eeds a major overhaul staff wise.

    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 pay was decent.
    The benefits were phenomenal.
    The location was prime.
    Coworkers were wonderful, helpful and supportive.
    I don't really have 20 words of Pros to report on this location of the company.

    Cons

    Management didn't want to listen to problems with the facility.
    Staffing was a nightmare. There is a staffing coordinator who doesn't do anything to do with staffing.
    Poor employee support in both personal and company matters.

    Advice to Management

    Start holding your management accountable for upholding what you claim to be your mission and direction, and start showing support to your front line staff. If you have a "door is always open" policy, don't make your staff feel alienated for addressing issues.
