    I have been working at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Partners Benefits are very good. You will be exposed to a wide range of complicated patients, which will give you the skills to handle almost any type of patient later in your career.

    Cons

    Getting to Inman Square and finding parking is challenging.

    Advice to Management

    Staff appropriately. Patients here are extremely complicated with multiple conditions. Covering 8 patients on a shift is too much to do safely.

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

    Pros

    Beautiful waterfront location which is great for inpatient recovery.
    Spaulding Rehab Hospital is ranked #5 in the nation!
    Great co-workers, dedicated PT/OT/SPEECH for patients.

    Cons

    Don't get taken in by the beautiful bldg & waterfront location.
    Understaffed and high turnover due to overload & stress.
    Management cares only about "numbers" & "stats".
    David Storto & upper management have no clue about the hard work that goes on in the trenches.....again, only concerned with numbers & stats.
    Poor outpatient management, with lack of planning.
    Shuffle the staff around, instead of addressing the REAL problems.

    Advice to Management

    When you build a new bldg, people will come!
    Listen to the good, hard workers, and you won't lose them.
    Keep staffing levels up with the extreme growth.

    I worked at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great facility, patient population, good benefits and matching retirement

    Cons

    Lowest starting salary of all the boston area hospitals for physical therapy. Nurses are paid similarly and because of this there is high turnover and inconsistencies for your patients. To get a promotion requires you to write essays and attend classes to become an 'advanced clinician' which can be rejected. Spaulding is the only facility I have worked at that does this.

    Advice to Management

    Match other regional hospitals in pay and regular promotions so that the turnover rate decreases

    Pros

    Great work environment. Flexible

    I have been working at Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital part-time

    Pros

    Staffing is improving. Good work experience.

    Cons

    Nurses must find their own weekend coverage, cannot request weekends off. At times staffing is not ideal. Minimal resources/support evening and overnight shifts.

    Good colleagues, support each other for better patient care

    Cons

    Work load can be heavy

    Very slow HR process. Needs to have better communication with potential employees.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits, adequate pay. Great network for focusing on education and learning. I had found good mentorship with the more experienced PT's, of which there are plenty.

    Cons

    As with all positions, make sure it's a good cultural fit with your supervisor at the specific location you will be working. Plus the documentation system is a beast.

    Advice to Management

    I recommend shifting more of the administrative work to the administrative staff so that PT's can focus on treatment, education, and marketing activities.

    Pros

    It's all dependent on who you work with. Benefits, good long term employer.

    Cons

    Large company issues, management compromises employee and patient safety for budgetary cuts.

    Advice to Management

    Staff your hospital according to needs of your patients, and staff. Patient experience and wellbeing will improve, as will staff morale and quality of workers willing to stay on after theyve gained some experience on the floor.
