    Pros

    Flexible scheduling, mileage reimbursement, good health benefits and patient-oriented management team. Staff tries to work together to improve workload among the team.

    Cons

    Average salary, but the health benefits help to compensate. If you do not need health benefits, the pay per visit rate is good. If you are willing to be flexible in where you travel you can keep busy.

    Advice to Management

    Increase referral base for more consistent work flow.

    Pros

    A paycheck of course, the co-workers I worked with and being able to help the patient's.

    Cons

    First off, if you are reading all of these glowing 4 & 5 star reviews, realize the hospital has been on "damage control" trying to reverse it's image here on Glassdoor. If you want to really know what it going on with this company, PLEASE take the time and go back several pages to see what people are really saying. Someone or a group of people are coming on this website putting up fake positive reviews about how great it is to work here. Don't be naive and buy into this.

    The job I had to do in and of itself was not bad and I actually would probably still be working here if it were not for the people I had to work under. It was dealing with inept managers, who thought they were doing us a favor by simply being in their presence. If you enjoy working with large numbers of people who are narcissistic, moody and like to micro manage every move you make, then you will do just fine here. One of the biggest changes they made was combining various positions into one job title. This of course caused high stress and burn out among many employees in various positions.

    In my department alone, I can't even tell you how many people were either forced out or quit their jobs. And I am talking about really good people with a lot of education, job experience and numerous credentials behind their name. As long as you tow the line, you will probably be alright. Go against your manager on anything or question something that is being done, you will end up with a big target on your back and writing your own pink-slip.

    I thought the problems were confined to my department, but when I would talk with other people that I knew in other parts of the hospital, they would tell me they were having similar issues. This told me that there was a systemic problem throughout. Of course the ones that end up suffering the most from all of this dysfunction are the patient's. Just google reviews of the hospital on the internet from patient's who have come to this hospital, it speaks volumes...

    Advice to Management

    Lead by example, not by fear and intimidation!

    Pros

    Pay is okay but could be better

    Cons

    Management doesn't listen or doesn't care. Way too many executives and still adding more while clinical staff is constantly short staffed. Go through reorganization and keep the same bad managers. Executives are clueless and HR won't help with anything other than covering a Manager or the company.

    Advice to Management

    Practice the I care values you preach about, do something positive like resign

    Pros

    Good benefits, decent place to work

    Cons

    They look out for the clinical associates more than the non-clinical ones especially those not in management positions

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to non-clinical, non-management associates
