    Pros

    Nothing good to say about Genesis.

    Cons

    All the negative things you read is true. It is better to stay unemployed then to never work at all because you are really risking your nursing license working at this company.

    Pros

    I like the facility, the patients and staff of the therapy dept.

    Cons

    Very unexperienced and rude area management who places unrealistic expectations on our PM and staff expecting overtime and weekend coverage from regular staff. There is limited coverage for vacation time and it is often denied. Hourly wages are not based on performance or experience but on what a person can negotiate with the area director. If she likes you, expect to make more money. The demands to keep patients on a caseload are unethical and we are often demanded to keep patients although we think they have reached potential. I have been asked to treat patients that are not appropriate for therapy, but the company wants the revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be a degreed person comparative to PT, SLP, OTR degrees. Management with lesser degrees have poor insight , communication skills, and are not viewed as professional by other staff. Upper management is out of touch with reality of therapy and more concerned with perception of the company,

    Pros

    Patients were the best part. Food is good. You can work as much as you want because most staff don't show up the next day so you have no choice .

    Cons

    Management is the worst part of the job. They spend most of the time with there favorites forgetting about the great employees they have. Special exceptions made for favorites. Shady sneaky management. Nothing stays in HR. The favorites are only favorites because they have major things over managements head so they get away with everything from calling out to lying and making false statements Etc..This is definitely a place to stay away from unless you love drama and low pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The entire place needs all new management

    Pros

    My unit manager and ADON were great!!

    Cons

    The DON was just THE most miserable person I've ever worked for. The CNAs run the show and would outright refuse to follow the RN/LPNs directions then would lie when you complained to the DON-who ALWAYS took their side. The staff turnover was really high and for good reason. If you stayed there long enough you eventually quit or were fired for trumped up reasons.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to get management that actually have a degree in healthcare management.

    Productivity, New documentation and decreased benefits.

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Like most places in healthcare now, your coworkers are the only pro.

    Cons

    Very poor, expensive benefits, no tuition reimbursement, no matching 401k, new (poor)documentation c the same productivity expectations, poor pt care c emphasis on rugs and keeping Medicare pts well beyond their appropriate D/c.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your system for high productivity, high profits is no longer working...unethical billing and poor pt care is spreading like c diff in your facilities. Change your business model and start providing competent services.

    Corporations are corporations... some things cant be helped. People often misunderstand reasoning behind big decisions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to remain as transparent as you can and don't forget what it was like to work the floor.

    Pros

    Competitive benefits and salary with strong managerial organization within facilities. Typical productivity requirements with travel required as needed to meet same.

    Cons

    Inadequate computer availability for documentation with requirement to utilize ITOUCH system which is insufficient to complete good notes, evaluations. Pressure to expand services despite inadequate patient base. Lack of opportunity to work with other disciplines in a team approach, with emphasis on getting "your" minutes "done", rather than a concern for patient progress and well-being.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on patient care, not productivity/minutes and micromanaging pt. care needs.
