Physiotherapist in Ottawa, ON
Great colleagues! Supportive company.I have worked for this company for a few years now (since we were bought out by them). It has been good for some things such as support from an admin perspective. Overall, the company has respected our clinic's unique services and delivery without the typical pressures from a big company that I would expect. They do support ongoing education within and out of the company. The compensation is on par and has a benefits program. Overall, I am happy at work with my workload and clientele. Management isn't the best at the clinic but our front desk staff and PT colleagues more than make up for this. After reading some reviews, I think it really depends at which Lifemark clinic you work. The one I work at is great.

Hidden Admin FeesAs a PT at Lifemark you get a fee-for-service wage which is a lot lower than the wage you get at other private clinics. Then lifemark takes off an 'admin' fee from every one of your billings. These fees aren't in your contract but just deducted off your pay. They amount to thousands of dollars each year that lifemark takes off in these hidden fees. They also increased the cost of our benefits on top of this.So you can make more at other clinics or you can go to the hospital and get better benefits and pension.

Some of the coworkers make this place a little more tolerable.There is absolutely nothing resembling job security, and don't expect to be paid much for unnecessarily busting your behind on their behalf. Precisely why they don't list the salary in the job posting as well as the HUNDREDS of responsibilities you will have while working there. They want to be able to lowball you during an interview by asking "what are your salary expectations" instead of HONESTLY STATING how much the job actually pays. I started applying for different jobs after the first 3 weeks of working there. I'm telling you right now, do not bother. This company is not worth your time. When you realize the amount of responsibility you have, and the little you're getting paid in comparison, you'll want to leave as well.Also, do not trust the middle managers at all. They're dishonest lap dogs for their corporate bosses who pretend to have your best interests.

Great Work Culture and Extended BenefitsWorking at corporate across multiple divisions, was able to build great relationships throughout the country with amazing teams of people. Regular benefits not amazing and no RRSP program, but extended benefits include top up coverage of services received inhouse at Lifemark clinics.

High expectations, with no reward I have found the work load has increased with covid cleaning and other varrious things, but not a the salary to match. It is discouraging to think about staying long term with a company where you do not feel rewarded. There has been I high turn over recently in some locations.
