    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Lots of resources available, large company with many growth opportunities, education available for staff, many different career tracks, expanding/growing business.

    Cons

    Systems are inefficient, decisions are made without input from the field, departments seem to be disconnected - right doesn't know what left is doing, not very strategic in planning and decision making, reactive, lost sight of staff and customers. iPods and desktops make documenting difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have someone at the top to guide all departments to ensure clinical decisions are compatible to operational goals and vice versa. There seems to be a lot of micromanaging happening and little discussion or input from those working in the field- get input. People will work harder and be more engaged if they feel like they are apart of it. There has also been a lot of changes in philosophy and planning - pick a strategy and stick with it for the long term, stop trying to change the focus every month with a new strategic report.

    Pros

    Great Managers and NPs, generally friendly staff on the units. Pay rate is fair but not competitive in my opinion.

    Not a very friendly administrative staff (Administrator, DON). I worked there for 4 years and received a 25 cent raise after my 3rd year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with the same respect you expect.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    I worked for a contract at the Western central hub, and there was a transition to Genesis from Sun.

    Everyone at this location was professional, personable, and helpful.

    Cons

    Lay offs were just happening, so this was the main downside.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open more positions for contractors!

    Pros

    Good paid vacation/sick time for employees.

    Cons

    Genesis is completely understaffed and has unrealistic expectations for thee employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get computers that work so the therapists and patients don't have to suffer through treatments with laptops that have missing keys and don't work.

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

    Pros

    Sick time that can be rolled over, vacation that can be rolled over, pay scale is good, overtime if your productivity is high enough

    Cons

    If you want off, you have to schedule it months ahead of time or risk being denied, so although you get vacation, try taking it! Have to "cover yourself" during the holidays if you want more than 2 days off, so even if you take 2 days off, you only get one day, cause you're coming in Saturday or Sunday.

    Constant shoving it down your throat about building med B caseload to "do what's best for the patient" but it's ALL about building revenue for the company.

    Crazy productivity when you're pulled in all directions by the company and whomever you're contracted with.

    Have to beg for materials to support therapy or buy it yourself

    Documentation that takes forever to do, with conflicting information of what's required. People working off the clock to get caught up.

    Therapy Programs are rolled out with NO follow through by management to actually implement them

    Don't be fooled. It's ALL ABOUT THE MONEY for corporate.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease the amount of upper management, get yourself back to the field, and see what it's really like in the trenches.

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

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with a very dedicated group of people, who persevered under very difficult circumstances. I also enjoyed the residents and interacting with the families. Most everyone took great pride in their work and showed a great generosity of spirit

    Cons

    Frequent turnover of building management, air of distrust of corporate management (rightly so as they lied continuously), lack of support from corporate management, intimidation, dehumanizing treatment of employees and ultimately, the closing of the facility resulting in loss of jobs for 114 people and the disruption of placement of 75 sick and elderly residents. Shameful!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate had all employees complete an employee satisfaction survey. Did you read them Do you even care? If you ran any other business in this fashion, you would'nt survive. Put some humanity back into healthcare or throw in the towel.
