    Fire the CEO and consolidate assets to either restructure as a software company or something else.

    Pros
    Met some good friends that I will stay friends with after we leave.

    Cons

    Cons
    Here goes:

    1. Too many lawsuits which you can easily find out about online and are verifiable according to court records.

    2. CEO is an ex attorney and in my opinion he struggles with managing a company within the physical therapy industry where clinics must be owned by licensed physical therapists.

    3. CEO has a VP Counsel as his close assistant.

    4. It would be my recommendation that everyone doing business with this company get everything in writing. Also, be aware that even if you have it in writing the company may back out of it as they are notorious for not keeping their word and have a long history of doing this.

    5. Really struggling to get investors.

    6. This year the company lost the COO, EVP HR and all their compliance people. There is no official tech security people. There is no full-time employed CFO but rather a contractor. One of the board members stepped up to be the acting COO last year and left in a year. Then another board member stepped up and is doing the position along with the CEO.

    7. Every month there are financial payment struggles with many people getting late payments and no payments. There are a lot of unhappy vendors.

    8. It is my opinion that this is company operates like a private small company with one owner,who directs every detail. It in my opinion is not a start-up and the EMR and technology is not in start-up mode because it has been in business a long time. You can't be a technology start-up for 8+ years. Which signals a mother red flag in my opinion....that they can't get traction on their tech stuff and should have stopped the investment years ago along with all the swim events.

    9. CEO micromanages and then speaks negatively about the team people behind their backs and in front of a lot of people.

    10. Formal and standard business practices like department planning, budgeting, timelines, project management are not deployed.

    11. Industry articles on this company are not positive and speak to the infamous Delaware lawsuit.

    12. Stock is weak and people being told that they can get stock and money will most likely never see the stock money. The Delaware lawsuit people were told one thing about the stock and have not received anything and efforts to sell the company by others have been pushed down so people are challenged as to how they are going to get their money out of the deal. Recommendation to read the details behind the lawsuit to verify all the details and the contexts. Everything is public in Delaware and many legal analysts have written articles about it.

    13. Investors decided to support WebPT verses OptimisPT and this can be verified by the investors and the companies involved.

    14. Vendors are rarely paid on time and employees advance their own expenses. Many credit cards are maxed out. Issues with Clinic Directors not happy that their bonuses are not what they should be.

    15. Employees struggle to respect the CEO due to all the lawsuits and the results which were very negative and included witness tampering and sanctions.No legal fees were every recouped. Millions spent and zero in return as the CEO wasn't really damaged and things were resolved before the suit even needed to be filed. All the time and effort and resources could have been put toward good things and paying out those that left and investing in the future. The choice to fight was sad for everyone involved. This can all be verified in the lawsuit, verdict and related filings which are available online and published in 2015 and 2016.

    16. There is no real office for OptimisCorp and its just a house or two on Mantua Road and one home is the CEO's. This is the house where the sexual harassment incidents happened as described in the lawsuit public filings. Rancho Physical Therapy headquarters is in Murietta.

    There is another house they call lower bubble down the street on Mantua Road and it is very old and filled with mold, soiled bedrooms and looks like a drug crash pad. The bathroom is filled with rust, mold, mildew, fungus, feces and looks like it hasn't been cleaned since the 70's. Its dirty and not a professional office environment. Garage start-ups are cleaner. Software developers are supposed to work here and told its because the company is in start-up mode. It is not in start-up mode as its been in business 8+ years.

    17. People are passing around the 75+ page verdict that the Delaware Court handed down in late 2015. If you would like to work at this company read the long version.

    20. Health insurance benefits are not considered very good by most people. there was a lot of unhappy people when the decision was made.

    Advice to Management

    The CEO should sell the company and go back into retirement and then start a protein shake company or the next version of Beachbody but for Ironmen like himself.

    The CEO should use his amazing mind for fitness food products and supplements and another fitness exercise equipment products. The CEO and the board should really focus on what they do best like developing their swimming and sport activities and another swim to africa event to raise money for charities.

    Or, the CEO could retake the bar exam and get his license in california and start up a sports and health focused law firm which is really his focus. They have a lot of experience in litigating in this area.

    Pros

    Optimis has a great technology stack to help tackle hard problems like scaling, performance & healthcare security. Optimis has some very exciting & innovative products in the roadmap and is well positioned to deliver them with the amazing team and leadership they currently have. Every employee gets an opportunity to participate and use the programs we build internally and it is great to experience these programs before they are scaled out to our users.

    Cons

    If you're familiar with startup culture then there aren't really any cons, there are common problems that need to be prioritized and solved.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to inspire and motivate the team to build amazing products that will revolutionize the PT and wellness industry.

    Pros

    Definitely a lot of fires to put out and obstacles to hurdle but overall the experience is great.
    Opportunities to build skills and knowledge are everywhere.
    Empower you to take on new challenges and tackle interesting problems.

    Cons

    Its not a clock in clock out company, and those that want to sit back and just draw a pay check will not thrive, if this is what you are looking for work for the city.

    Advice to Management

    Increase communication with the employees and further inspire them to reach for the highest levels.

    Pros

    What a great group of developers and support personnel to work with! Everyone is hard-working, but they also like to have fun. Most have values consistent with the company's focus on health and wellness. I've been cajoled into exercising more regularly and eating better ... and I'm so thankful for that! I was concerned that the company had struggled because of attacks by disgruntled former leaders, but you wouldn't know it from the positive, can-do attitude of the development and support teams.

    Cons

    If you're looking to punch a clock, work 9-5, this isn't the place for you. The place is buzzing with energy and excitement about big new things. If you're not ready for that, you won't fit in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep bringing in talented and motivated developers, as you have recently!

    Pros

    If one considers having no leadership or incompetence a pro, then that would be it.

    Cons

    What a shame to waste so much time and energy on worthless endeavors. The company has no future. The company structure diluted across random subsidiaries to hide fiduciary wrongdoing and lawsuits. CEO wasting millions (of Rancho PT money) fighting litigation. Software repository filled with vaporware from software devs who come and go every 3 months. No concrete product or tangible asset. Stock worthless.

    Advice to Management

    Need 100% management restructuring. This includes the CEO stepping down. There is no future with Alan M. making decisions.

    I worked at OptimisCorp full-time

    Pros

    Unfortunately there are no pros. The last positive review is from the CEO himself, and ranking himself as a positive thumbs up --- haha, who would do this? It made me laugh reading the CEO talk about himself in 3rd person.

    Cons

    The CEO is the direct reason this company is in the piehole. He is a classic narcissist and has wasted millions of dollars funding his personal legal battles against ex-employees and partners. He spins everything as if "everything is moving in the right direction" with new people and new opportunities. He's been doing this for 10 years, spending other peoples money, ruining other peoples lives, creating random subsidiaries, etc. The reason this place doesn't work is that the good people move on, creating high turnover, while the few that remain are goonies that wouldn't be able to get work anywhere else. This creates a culture of not getting anything done as mentioned accurately in other reviews.

    Advice to Management

    CEO --- Step down. You ARE the problem, not the solution. Beware working here or partnering with this company as YOU WILL lose.

    Pros

    None it is all negative despite what the CEO wrote he is the one who is in Pacific Palisades and he is a megalomaniac! He is sucking the company dry paying for all his lawsuits. If they offer you stock options do not accept they are worthless.

    Cons

    That is all they have! CEO is not a kind man you need to research the multiple lawsuits against him! The system is built on an unstable platform that may crash and burn any minute! Do not work here!!!

    Advice to Management

    There is a reason so many go out on stress leave and high turnover!

    Pros

    Great colleagues that believe in the product and what the company is trying to do for the physical therapy profession
    Great EMR product; best in the business if the company would get out of its own way
    Flexibility in your schedule
    Good vision for company growth

    Cons

    -Frustration with negative reviews from one division in the company....the reviews that are on this page depend on what division of the company you work for. The people that deal with the actual clients regularly are dedicated, really hardworking and always go above and beyond to try and help the customer.
    -The physical therapy division that is around the country has therapists that are very skilled and provide exceptional care.
    -There are many great ideas on how to grow and improve, but they take too long to see the light of day.
    -We know first hand of people that used to work for the company that have a grudge and love to come back and write negative reviews; sad that competitors have to resort to that type of unethical tactic.

    Advice to Management

    There are a lot of great employees that allow this company to continue to thrive; many have been with the company for years and stayed despite internal conflict that happened years ago. The company needs to do a better job of setting the record straight to the public while the competition plants a negative image on multiple sites versus staying quiet...it is actually a great company with a great product; some upper level management just do a really poor job of communicating that.
