    Great people

    Former Employee - Imaging Technician  in  Albuquerque, NM (US)
    Former Employee - Imaging Technician in Albuquerque, NM (US)

    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!

    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.

    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)
    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
