    I worked at RehabCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    excellent co-workers, nice facility, benefits

    Cons

    Never get a raise with no justification, Unpredictable work days , management focused only on productivity, lack of team approach and training specific to departments, not family oriented, constantly short-staffed, and unable to use PTO without covering for self.

    Advice to Management

    Should work harder to implement changes with upper corporate management to discontinue policies which engender working off- the- clock to meet unrealistic expectations. Should try to look beyond the short term productivity to see long-term benefits of an employee and family friendly work place.

    I worked at RehabCare full-time

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with the patients on my caseload and with my fellow coworkers. The hourly pay was decent and they offered multiple insurance options.

    Cons

    Employees felt like they were micromanaged with strict productivity requirements. Employees also didn't feel valued. In fact, it felt as if the company was more concerned about profit than they were about their employees well-being. This is ultimately why I left.

    Pros

    HR help desk and IT is very helpful.

    Cons

    Area Director didnt value staff enough to get to know them or speak with them directly. They only cared about money and the bottom line.

    They dont give bonuses or raises.

    I worked at RehabCare full-time

    Pros

    Good Customer Service via Hub

    Cons

    My recommendation is to find inhouse therapy or smaller companies that are better micromanaged. You may not get as many benefits but at least you will feel like a valued employee and not just a number that needs to meet numbers.

    Advice to Management

    Rethink your model

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Co-worker. I believe because we all feel like we are trapped on the same boat, adversity makes us closer. Says I need a minimum of 20 words but I literally have no more "pros".

    Cons

    Middle management (especially at regional level) are bullies, far to prevalent, and way too focused on numbers (productivity, point of service, and percentages code usage) that have a severely adverse effect on patient care and employee moral. If you are in Houston area SNF/ALF you know who I am talking about. To make matters worse they do pander to suck ups who are generally the worst at therapy. Finally hypocrisy is rampant making employees attest that they do not partake in certain behaviors, but then making it impossible not to (and providing means for them to do so)

    Advice to Management

    Stop bullying your PDs/CCs with your "trends". Stop pandering to your chosen few. Regionals try working a week at one of your facilities under the framework you yourself set up.

    I worked at RehabCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nice recruiting but then you get there & it all changes. Benefits are average but they are all taken by your paycheck when your not getting your hours.

    Cons

    I would consider this fraud at the worst. You see people who don't need therapy, longer than you should, can't discharge when they have met their goals. Make you revert even though not needed. High turnover rate of staff & you don't get paid for documentation time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit doing HomeCare you don't know what your doing.

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I don't have an answer. There aren't many pros. Health insurance isn't very good and 401 isn't very good at all.
    Training needs to be done for the CNAs to get the patients out of bed more.

    Cons

    Hardly any yearly raises and very small when you are given a raise.They need to emphasize getting the patients out of bed more and train the CNAs to do that. Patients need to be kept cleaner.

    Advice to Management

    It's a shame it's all about productivity.
