    I worked at Medstar National Rehabilitation Network full-time

    Pros

    Great co-workers, very busy site, but it made the day go by fast.

    Cons

    Management- too much favoritism in the office, manager would be gone for two hours for lunch break and taking co-workers with her. She would be sleeping in her desk or pretending like she's doing work. At the time we would make complaints, but higher management would ignore.

    Advice to Management

    STOP BEING LAZY! Do your work and have respect for your co-workers, especially the front desk, they take a lot of heat for your mistakes.

    Pros

    Well established organization and decent benefits package - 5% 403B match after 3 years of being vested.

    Cons

    Low pay. Upper management allows for patients to mistreat staff - does not discharge even if verbal and physical threats are made. High turnover of therapists.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, protect the integrity of your staff.

    Pros

    Compassionate team members who really care about the patients.

    Cons

    High stress, low compensation, unclear direction from leadership, not enough growth & development for non-clinical team members. Overall challenging (& NOT in a sharpen your mind & problem-solving kind of way)... the pros no longer outweigh the cons.

    Advice to Management

    Start really, truly, genuinely listening to the feedback associates are giving you.

    Pros

    Great benefits and fun people to work with. Definitely a good place to gain work experience. Also, pretty good pay

    Cons

    Management needs improvement but pay raise definitely needs to come more often. Also, more transparency with decisions along with constant updates

    Pros

    Reputable organization. Culture and values excellent but did not see evidence of it supported in action and was reprimanded for getting too involved.

    Cons

    Hierarchical organization. Redundant inefficient processes and pressure to be more productive. Resistant to recommendations to be more efficient. Not a positive overall experience.

    Advice to Management

    Working faster does not make it better. If the process does not support payment doing more of it quicker will not make a difference.

    Pros

    NRH has room for growth and opportunity if you know the right leaders and they like you. The tuition Reimbursement and benefits are great. Training is minimal. Some leaders are great.

    Cons

    A very gossipy, cliquey organization with below average pay for the role and the area. HR recently took over completely and are NOT advocates for employees anymore, instead they gossip about private issues they are privy to and work to push out employees. AVP's are unprofessional, power trip and are the worst. Beware!

    Advice to Management

    Work with HR to keep the good people, they are worth the investment. Stop making excuses for lazy, trouble making staff because they are your friends and cheerleaders. Stop discussing your personal opinions of staff and engaging in gossip, instead focus what people bring to the table and how to groom them for growth, not beat them down! Try actually being professional. Shame on you NRH!

    Pros

    Able to assist clients to functioning at the highest capacity prior to discharge . Care for clients with orthopedic, spinal cord and brain injuries . Introducing a new clientele called lvad which is new program with adventure and some concerns .

    Cons

    Clients have to be out of bed and in bed various times throughout the day for resting and various therapy. The consistent transfers can be quite tedious. Excessive documentation.

    Advice to Management

    Minimize the patient to nurse ratio to 5 to 1 if acuity is high , minimize documentation so more time spent with patient at bedside and work together as a team for the betterment of the clients , staff and hospital morale .
