    I have been working at RehabCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice culture with direct coworkers, direct supervisor is a big reason why I stay. Flexible work hours (I work a flex schedule)

    Cons

    Upper management sets impossible policies and is borderline unethical. Benefits not very good. Often hires new grads over seasoned employees because they don't want to pay them. This makes a group of people who are all new and have no guidance. Constantly feel like it's upper management vs. therapists. Lacks that feeling of unity.

    Advice to Management

    Policies created at the top do not necessarily translate well at the bottom.

    The company does not offer a 401k plan, does not supply rehab center with latest technologies, raises are infrequent so ask for a high salary to start.

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    flexible schedule
    great therapy staff!
    awesome PD.
    one of the higher paying per hour
    ipad for documentation

    Cons

    no raises
    as most healthcare facilities, priority is RUG levels.
    lots of documentation criteria , lengthy daily notes req.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it patient focused.
    Praise your clinicians for days with good productivity. Remember, to be good clinicians we also have to take time out for family phone calls, staff consultation, etc. that we cannot always ethically do on patient time. Documentation- I understand the effort from the company to make it high quality for medicare; however, if it is a matter of opinion, it is the clinician's license, so please hear out point of view.

    Pros

    They are nationwide and have similar systems at their various locations. They offer benefits to full time employees.

    Cons

    They are trying to balance patient care and making money and they too often make decisions based on profit instead of what is best for the patient.

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

    Pros

    They pay you and if you don't make waves, they will continue to pay you. Dress code isn't enforced, but nobody I work with takes advantage of that so the envelope isn't pushed. Rehab mgr is really great to work with and freely admits he can only do so much because of Corporate. You get a small box of candy at Christmas. Experience isn't necessary to get promoted.

    Cons

    Old, rusty equipment! The Nustep has been broken for 3 yrs. If a pts isn't a certain height, the Nustep can't be used. Way too many activities and equipment has to be purchased by we therapists or they will not be purchased. You want therapists.. headband? Buy it on Amazon because RehabCare won't. No personal affects are allowed on desks or walls. No pay raises in a couple of years. Not enough room for all disciplines in therapy room. Some RehabCare facilities are not OT-and speech-friendly, therefore, dressing and self feed must be simulated because those early morning schedules are not going to exist prior to 8 AM, sometimes 9. corporate prefers to hire young therapists secondary to the monetary issue. Rumors spread about 'old' therapists being terminated because of scanty reasons as FL is a no-fault state. The website to get payroll info requires way too many hoops to jump through - this could be made so much easier. No holiday pay, no free CEUs. You are not allowed to sell your PTO; however, they will let you lose it if you aren't able to take it. You are not 'on the clock' when you retrieve pts' names nor are you paid to do the mandatory delivery of daily notes back to the server. This is a huge complaint when the WiFi is down because you cannot go home until they are downloaded. Assistants are never promoted, despite their experience, however, OTs and PTs with a lot less are so that's a pro and a con.

    Advice to Management

    There has to be 20 words here.. I don't see any point of pointing out the obvious. The cheapness.. the discrimination in hiring younger therapists... I have to wonder how old the office furniture is at Corporate.. I'm betting the offices are nice.
