    Pros

    Great Opportunities for new grads or someone just getting into the rehab field

    Cons

    Scheduling can be frustrating.. Inconsistent based on needs of facility. Management is often motivated by productivity and not the needs of patient or employees

    I worked at RehabCare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I enjoyed the relatively non-invasive management style in the corporate office. There was expectation of getting tasks completed on time but no one sitting on your back to do them.

    Cons

    While having freedom was good, lack of communication and project structure left me unprepared for my next role in a company that was much faster-paced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adopt and implement agile or waterfall project management structures.

    Employees shouldn't have to make up for an entirely unproductive manager

    Pros

    They are more then competitive. Good people who are realistic

    Cons

    Recent health insurance decreases. Itouch POC is horrible. I wish they would scrap their computer system. To much paperwork with a bad try at paperless

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The business is realistic. People need to realize the atmosphere. People complain about the company but they are above average. The other companies I've worked for ate not as good as rehabcare. Productivity is realistic and anyone who says otherwise is mot attuned to the industry. They want to see people and not even earn their salary. The company, besides the paperwork, is good. Beware of Reliant rehab

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    My team is awesome and both Area Rehab Directors for whom I worked have been both responsive and effective leaders.

    Cons

    My company has failed to renew the leases Ann upwards of 70 buildings throughout the US and many of us will be no longer employed by our parent company -- Kindred Healthcare. This is a huge disappointment and a seeming lack of return on the loyalty I gave the company.

    I have been working at RehabCare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One on one patient care. I enjoy working with the patients and help them return function and return home again. Variety of patient diagnoses to work with, Orthopedic, CVA, COPD, Pneumonia, general surgery, general weakness. Diverse cultural staff. Team approach.

    Cons

    Productivity standards are 90 % for Physical Therapist Assistants, 85% for PT's. If it is too slow, must go home early.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compliment staff on what they do well.
