    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.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare

    Pros

    They have an excellent resource library through their intranet that provides valuable clinical information as well as numerous a blues for advancement whether it be clinical or administrative.

    Cons

    Productivity standards coupled with inadequate electronic devices to maintain such standard unrealistic at this time and their documentation systems seems to be not up to par with their expectations and fluidity that would allow for high productivity standards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more access with more computers and more paper ready resources to decrease time spent on non productive administrative duties to allow for more focus on what we do best, patient care.

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

    Pros

    Benefits almost start immediately. Thorough orientation. One of the nicer facilities I've seen in LTC (even behind the scenes).

    Cons

    Orientation not on the shift you'll be working (when things are a lot different on each shift). No real money for all the hard work especially in the area I live... hard to live off this income. Co-workers are more of an issue than the residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create another program to help employees further their education so they'll stay with the company and to have a lower turnover rate.
