    I have been working at LifeCare Hospitals full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a friendly environment

    Cons

    Dictatorial regime.
    No job security with very little staff appreciation except the occasional scraps under the table.
    The CEO is trying to build his own empire.

    Advice to Management

    Our CEO came form another facility that is closing, since then he has been replacing the current staff with his old staff at the facility. It is no secret. Job security doesn't exist.

    Pros

    No pros. Never send any of your love ones here. You will regret it. Trust me. They don't care about your love ones just your money.

    Cons

    A disgrace. No teamwork. None of the nurses care about their patients. They are disgusting. Uncaring humans taking care of your loved ones. This chain of hospitals really need to be shut down.

    Advice to Management

    Need to just shut all of the Shreveport Campuses down

    Pros

    Great flexibility in work type, management easy to work under, positive environment. The level of care our clinical team provides is unmatched.

    Cons

    I can't really think of any major cons. LifeCare has been an amazing place to work for. I would recommend this place to any prospective employee.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing. The current leadership team has many innovative solutions, and is highly motivated.

    I worked at LifeCare Hospitals full-time

    Pros

    there are no pros at this time

    Cons

    bought us out from great company,( six hospitals) to avoid competition. Then began to treat these employees with disrespect. reduced hours, less pay then original Lifecare employees. Said we didn't know how to run a hospital, after THEY filed bankruptcy!!! Cancelled us only to bring original employees to work our shift. ( please read Mechanicsburg review). Then they closed our campus. all employees gone from original hospital, but kept the employees LIFECARE hired.

    Advice to Management

    you can't keep CEO's, COO's. you blame YOUR failures beginning with KATRINA. You bought LTACH's only to close them, devastating those employees. Maybe you should CLOSE ALL YOUR HOSPITALS....and stop your dirty deeds. KARMA holds no preferences.

    I have been working at LifeCare Hospitals full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I work with a great set of nurses, who are top in their field. The ICU staff is very knowledgeable and have a great skill set, and the med-surge nurses are very caring and take excellent care of their patients. I think that one of the biggest compliments that you can give a fellow nurse is that you would pick them to be your family's nurse. This place really does care for their patients, and I highly recommend it.

    Cons

    Sometimes staffing gets canceled due to low census. I really do not like being canceled, which doesn't happen often, but bothers me when it does.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to have a nice healthy raise!

    Pros

    Good coworkers , reasonable salary , normal hospital hours and shifts , 3 different campuses to work at in the city

    Cons

    Upper management is working on getting better not quite there yet. Management has a revolving door at the moment and it makes employees uneasy

    Such a revolving door of management makes employees uneasy

    Pros

    Good amount PTO, medical and dental are good

    Cons

    Can't use PTO due to staffing issues. Management never demonstrates teamwork or collaboration. Very disruptive management in general.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate needs to seek out managers who can lead through teambuilding, not yelling or threats. Proactive would be nice. Demonstrating teamwork is very lacking and disruptions are high.
