    Pros

    Great upper management with open door policy. You feel noticed and appreciated from the co-workers, other disciplines, case managers all the way to the top. I have had tremendous health problems affecting my ability sto work. They care and are working with me in many ways. They still acknowledge me as an excellent therapist and asset to the company. They do a tremendous job of orientating and working new employees into the facility and feeling like part of the team. Departments and employees from other disciplines work as a team for the support of the patients and families, from keeping the rooms looking neat to cleaning up "messes," to being there when a patient has complications. I actually feel loved and cared about which sounds corny but true. I have a fantastic department director and as she said to me one day when I was struggling with a personal problem, "work is a safe place for you."

    Cons

    They could have a better PTO policy by far. They don't offer much in external continuuing education but the base pay is really good. The health, disability, life insurance, 401K etc benefits are excellent, so the lack of continuuing ed money is a trade off.

    Advice to Management

    None. It is a great place to work.

    Pros

    Challenging environment. Excellent leadership team. Well managed and growth oriented company. Many opportunities to learn and grow. Nationwide and well respected healthcare provider.

    Cons

    Work life balance can be a challenge. Extremely fast paced organization that runs very lean and is constantly evolving. Must be adept at handling change because that is one constant here!

    Advice to Management

    Continue investing in your loyal and valued employees. They have your back and trust your leadership. Keep an eye on salaries to remain competitive, especially as the economy improves, and recognize your stellar employees with well-deserved increases so they don't look elsewhere.

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

    Pros

    Resources, continuing education, certifications, operations support, clinical excellence and patient centered focus.

    Cons

    Slow to fund or organize local development but good resources for it. Corporate structure limits marketing and makes changes difficult but there is a good support network and you are allowed to develop your clinic and run things locally with the excellent backing of a larger company.

    Advice to Management

    More local support and marketing/programs development. More team building at the staff level regionally.

    Pros

    The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Some days, it could get crazy but everyone always pulled together to make the best of any situation.

    Cons

    The shift was often understaffed making it difficult to keep up with patient care. Towards the end of my career there, more staff was hired so I'm hoping it is still that way now.

    I worked at Select Medical full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Being able care for the very ill patient population was rewarding and humbling. The entire team worked well together, making it a wonderful experience as a team mate and for patient and family.

    Cons

    It is a hospital, and we must take care of patients 24/7 creating challenges for the holidays for staff.
