    Teamwork Environment

    May 28, 2022 - Physical Therapist Assistant 
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Most employees stay because of the variety of patients we get to see in home care coming from a trauma center. They take most all insurance and provide visits to underinsured and not insured just to be certain patients are getting the care they need and deserve. Management is overall wonderful. Helpful and encouraging.

    Cons

    As with all healthcare jobs currently, the expectations of productivity can be a lot but not as demanding as some other places I have worked.

    Great at work, low pay for employees

    Pros

    Healthcare workers receive ample experience, and have a wonderfully supportive team of disciplines to work alongside.

    Cons

    The company uses an HR service that calculates the pay each employee should have, which often provides a lowball amount. Most employees at Vanderbilt are vastly underpaid.
