    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

    Use to be good company

    Cons

    They keep your pto if your let go

    Advice to Management

    A person works very hard to save their pto in case of a serious illness or family illness because we may a one income home but then you steal it from what we worked so hard to earn if you let us go. Not fair.

    This company offers competitive benefits, and has good people. There are many different facilities, so not all may be the same.

    They offer lousy pay for some positions and are understaffed. The workload distribution is far from even. Some jobs are valued much more than others with in the company.

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

    Pros

    None at all, the cons definitely outweigh any pros I could think of. If I was made to choose at least one pro it would be the food they served at lunch was decent.

    Cons

    Help from management, NOT a conducive place for new grads to learn or gain confidence. In my opinion, this place will make you reconsider ever choosing Nursing as a career. If you're a nurse you'll be faced with situations that will force you to weigh jeopardizing your nursing license and losing your job. In particular is having an unsafe patient to nurse ratio, acuity levels are not distributed upon employees in a fair manner, etc. You will get burnt out quick. I believe HR and management work together and against their employees. There is absolutely no where for an employee to go if they need help requiring the help of an outside source above management. This review is in regards towards the Healthsouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Henderson located in Henderson, Nevada only.

    Advice to Management

    Provide help to your employees, not threaten their jobs or belittle them.
