    Pros

    Good pay. 4 weeks pto.

    Cons

    Over staffing within my current facility. If you need more than 25 hrs per week you have to drive between facilities that are close to an hr away. You get drive time but it does not come close to your hourly rate. The insurance is bcbs and is not as good as what I've had with other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your DOR when they tell you we don't need more therapists.

    I worked at Reliant Rehabilitation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good pay and good PTO--I never had any issues using it. My co-workers were amazing! Varied caseload that I learned a lot from.

    Cons

    Very high pressure to pick up patients, even if you decide they are not appropriate for therapy. Always being told to "think creatively" or from a "different perspective" when it comes to picking up a patient or not and use corporate jargon to explain away ethics. I'm not sure EBP ever entered the equation when they developed their "Model 10" philosophy. DORs are actively being told to challenge and question evaluating therapists' clinical decisions. In fact, a regional said that the quality of therapist is judged by whether he/she can find something to treat (bill for) even if the person can walk, talk, and swallow. It's even worse if you are a new clinician. Regionals are hired/fired every few months so there is no consistency. Not provided with any tx materials or assessments, I had to buy a lot myself or just get creative. I felt like I was forced to constantly toe the line of fraud. Forced overtime, although paid, being forced to work 50+ hr weeks is insane. I took a 30% paycut just so I could leave my job with this company.

    Advice to Management

    Remember who makes you your money! Therapist's make decisions based on at least 6 years of intensive education and the science surrounding our fields--you can't change the research just to suit your bottom line.

    I have been working at Reliant Rehabilitation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company for 3 years and it continues to amaze me how much it keeps growing! Reliant Rehabilitation is a very innovative company and seems to constantly roll out improvements to its model of care. I feel like it is a very stable company with a very strong management team. I've never heard of them losing any business and they constantly are sending out information on new states they are occupying. They like to promote from within and I like the feeling of knowing I have career growth opportunities. I have therapists constantly calling me from other companies when regulations change to find out how Reliant is responding. It makes me feel proud to be with a company that always has a plan for the future.

    Cons

    Management has a low tolerance for therapists that are clock watchers. They aren't as focused on productivity as others I've seen, but attitude seems to be a buzz word with this group. I've seen a few therapists with the "what have you done for me lately" attitude get shown the door.

    Advice to Management

    Please grow Alabama so I can move back home with your company!
