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

    Pros

    Met many great co-workers along the way. There is usually the option of transferring to other buildings.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the honeymoon phase of working for Genesis wore off eventually. Overall, I found that the environment really depends on which specific building you work in. You may be a part of a team in which everyone is friendly, helpful, even socializes outside of work, or you end up working in a building where folks are uptight. I agree with other reviewers who mentioned a revolving door of staff. I had several, and I mean SEVERAL, different managers as an employee with Genesis. Seems they just can't hang onto managers for more than a year or so.
    My biggest disappointment came during my last 2 years working for Genesis. It seemed that more and more was being expected of us as employees, but that Genesis was very unwilling to budge re: hourly rate or any other incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that the "clique culture" needs to be addressed in many buildings. In the last building I worked in, it was as if there was a Rehab Illuminati that I was not part of. Only employees who were willing to drink the Kool-aid, so to speak, were in. On two particular occasions, I recall hearing information from my co-workers that I had shared with my manager in confidence. It was extremely disappointing to discover that my superior couldn't be trusted not to share information with her minions.

    Pros

    Good pay rate, learn a lot

    Cons

    Bad management, vacation and benifits suck

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employes, they are not as replaceable as you think. Pay is good for a healthcare company, but the benifits are lacking and expensive. Education reimbusement program closed. Management treat emplyees like a commodity, no respect. Vacation 2 weeks a year for the first 5 years, good luck trying to take any, you have to request vacation in summer 6-8months in advance.

    Former Employee - RN Management in Falmouth, MA (US)

    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.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    job security as company expands and buys out other rehab providers
    easy to transfer locations within company

    Cons

    pay freezes for the last 2 years, do not contribute to 401K, make it very difficult to use benefit time (expected to flex time off during the week with weekend coverage), corporate/management have lost touch with realities therapists face in the clinic, emphasis is on revenue not patient care, productivity standards that keep increasing while support to perform job duties are decreasing, atmosphere varies from location to location based on local management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    demonstrate dedication to patient care over revenue production
    demonstrate that you value the therapists and support staff with adequate compensation, respect, and P&P that are supportive to work/life balance

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It is a stable company.
    The company has accommodated me for FT, PT and PRN at various times when I needed to change my availability.

    Cons

    No $$ promotions, pay cuts....but we won't cut your job, 6 month request for any time off. Working all holidays.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the focus off the bottomline.
    Listen to the therapist, they were trained to do what they do.
    Appreciate your employees and show them that you do.
