Great until I was laid-off

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Phoenix, AZ (US)

I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than a year

ProsPay, benefits, 'autonomy', no micro-managing

ConsNo advancement, company cutbacks, upper management leaves you in the dark

Advice to Senior ManagementJob was great, but business model is flawed. They won't make therapists work 'off the clock' but demand unrealistic productivity. Company expanded too much in the western US and did not properly set up clinics for success. Upper management does not keep middle management in the loop until you are hit with a bombshell.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

good times, bad times, no better or worse than any other rehab company

PTA (Former Employee)
Chester, PA (US)

I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 3 years

Prosgreat place to learn your discipline, great variety of patient diagnosis.
rehab staff is great to work with,

Consproductivity expectations are unrealistic when you consider the geriatric population is mostly sick and tired, rarely does the day go smoothly to see all patients in such a way that ensures 90% productivity.

Advice to Senior Managementspend a day in a rehab gym and experience what challenges are present that get in the way of high productivity and treating patients for unreasonably high minutes.

Great corporation, poor management at this facility, revolving door, always short-staffed

Nurse (Former Employee)
Mount Olive, NC (US)

I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than a year

Prosgreat coworkers, teamwork, salary and benefits

Consmandatory non-optional increase in work days, secondary to staff shortage;threatened to reduce to every other weekend, part-time, which was to them: "the same as an employee giving notice", if we objected to working more than what was originally agreed upon.

Advice to Senior ManagementPoor management, needs to consider hiring someone with a background in nurse management instead of letting the scheduler direct the nurses and be more involved with what is going on at the facility.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Genesis

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than a year

ProsExcellent health care benefits. Flexibility in work schedules. At some facilities, a good atmosphere of mutual support among employees.

ConsHigh stress, low pay, especially at higher professional levels. Chronically understaffed.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have a high turnover rate primarily due to work overload burnout. My guess is that any money the company gains by understaffing is lost through the constant training of new employees and customer dissatisfaction due to the instability the high turnover causes.

Management shows favoritism

Registered Nurse (Former Employee)

ConsFrom director of nursing to northeast division management team, they DO NOT care about residents or staff. It is all about the money to them

Advice to Senior ManagementTake some ethical courses
