    I worked at Select Medical full-time

    Pros

    The facility administrators did their best trying to make the hospital a good place to work.

    Cons

    Select system as a whole has many flaws. Their main goal is for profit, and that shows in the their policy and the way they run business. They turned once a family like environment into a cold business only oriented facility. Unrealistic expectations without good support.

    Advice to Management

    To the facility specific management: Thank you for trying.
    To Select Headquarters: Please honor your words.

    I worked at Select Medical (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Big company with an undeserved reputation. Allows you to move somewhere else quickly.

    Cons

    This is a greedy, small-minded company whose culture punishes innovation. They talk about patient satisfaction, but the financial bottom line is the bottom line.

    Advice to Management

    Try to understand why you lose so many staff members every year. If it's still a mystery, think about how much it costs you.

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

    Pros

    Make your own schedule. Set your own pace. Create your own marketing and business strategies for your assigned territory. Very flexible.

    Cons

    Micromanaged to the max! Overwhelming pressure to acquire referrals and admits with no regards to the census' of referring hospitals. Management isn't clinically trained and strictly are numbers people.

    Advice to Management

    Understand there's expectations and then there's reality. Numbers don't always tell the truth so if you want to maintain certain goals and change the culture of certain facilities then your administration needs to start getting their hands dirty on a daily basis. Stop putting so much pressure the jobs of staff members on your marketing team.
