    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very laid back atmosphere. Love the residents here and my other colleagues. Definitely helps you grow in the people skills area.

    Cons

    Administration seems a bit lacking. Seems disorganized at times. Orientation/training does not explain all parts of the job. Felt as though I was just thrown into it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get organized.

    Pros

    on top of their game with technology, provide what's needed to get the job done.

    Cons

    unrealistic productivity rates and terrible pay. They give less and less benefits each year and still expect more from emoloyees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show appreciation for employees, it would help boost morale and productivity if paychecks allowed emoloyees to live above the poverty line

    Pros

    At one time benefits for education were very good

    Cons

    Cut hours, no back up from management. achievements not recognized and never enough. Expected productivity is unrealistic and not conducive according to setting.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize your employees achievements. Be involved, get out of the office contribute to marketing for increasing caseloads.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are wonderful, hard working, truly care about the residents. Acute-care is good experience.

    Cons

    I have been here over three years, starting as a new graduate LPN. In that time period, the turnover with employees has been huge. Many long term employees left due to management. Currently, there are no 3-11 or weekend supervisors, there has not been in about 6 month.
    There are agency nurses working almost every shift, every day of the week to fill in the gaps because staffing is so low. Getting time off is extremely hard, even if you ask months in advance. If you do not have enough vacation time, you must find your own coverage of a regular, not per diem, employee (hard to do when there are few people that can actually cover your shifts). If you are sick, they interrogate you as to why you are calling out and ask personal questions.
    Upper management is extremely disrespectful of employees, reprimanding employees in public, discussing personal information in public, and talking about other employees when other people can hear.
    I have had a $0.50 raise in the three and a half years since I have started. I have not received my raise or annual review for this year (six months late).
    Attitudes of certain employees that have been there for years are never addressed. Some employees are downright rude and disrespectful to new employees and are never spoken to about it. According to management, "well that's just so and so, nothing we can do about it."
    When employees go per diem, or put in their notice for termination of employment, they are treated terribly by management and even some staff members. Management has been known to bully employees who quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Appreciate all the hard work your employees do! Stop giving employees grief when they call out sick or need time off.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Overall, the company's formal training program for RNs was pretty impressive. Salary was good. Benefits okay with limited choices.

    Cons

    Would not recommend for new RNs since this company found it acceptable to have LPNs training new RNs, which is not good since such person knew LPNs were being phased out in favor of RNs and therefore had a record for being exceptionally critical of new RNs and had many fired. Later, this new RN found employment at another facility and had a much more positive first-time working experience ... and was successful in LTC and later, acute care.

    Pros

    Genesis provides a great professional work environment. I was with the Cost Reimbursement Department for 17.5 years.

    Cons

    The only con would be that there is another corporate office in PA and they are moving certain jobs to that location. which was the case in my situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to give at least cost of living raises to get quality people to apply and stay with the company on a long term basis.
