    Good Career choice- depending on what department you land in

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Danville, PA

    ProsProgressive health system-leader in health care, innovative. Truly focused on hiring bright, talented Physicians and Specialists.

    Conscertain departments have high turnover, in part due to the cliques that are prominent. Watched many new college grads arrive with high hopes of fitting in and starting a promising career, only to be knocked down by leadership cliques. Especially true if you are an above average looking young woman. The other women, supposed leaders, can be brutal. Not all departments, worked in several that were just bad-.

    Advice to Senior Managementmost middle managers really have no power/guts to do what is in the best interest of the department.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent first job, yet little opportunity for career advancement

    Research Assistant (Current Employee)
    Danville, PA

    ProsThe Geisinger Center for Health Research (CHR) is a state-of-the-art research building that provides a great atmosphere and confortable workspace. The coworkers are friendly and highly team-oriented with high morale. The benefit package is generous and employees have access to plenty of healthcare resources. Employees also have a fair amount of say in the job functions that they perform.

    Consthe education requirements and job description do not accurately line up with the actual job functions and pay. Therefore, all too often do overqualified employees take positions in the CHR only to leave shortly afterwards for better career opportunities (and pay). Upward mobility is severely hindered as seasoned employees are often overlooked for promotions in favor of overqualified new-hires. This has caused an environment of very high turnover rates (under a year for positions such as research assistant and project coordinator), with employees often leaving shortly after they are trained to adequate performance. While this is commonplace in many industries, it has perhaps more of an impact on such a research institution where projects which span several years rely on consistency.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    lots of patients

    Staff Physician (Surgical Specialist) (Current Employee)
    Danville, PA

    ProsGood, standard benefits package, mature electronic medical record system

    Conslocated in a small town and far from a major city or airport, too many patients squeezed into short appointments; detrimental since many patients come to Geisinger for complex medical conditions, or because they have had complications at other institutions, or have been dissatisfied with outside providers

    Advice to Senior Managementfollow a provider around seeing the clinic patients, having to get a history, review medications, surgery, imaging studies (takes longer if done at an outside institution since pts bring CDs), counseling, and finally documenting all of this electronically; I often close a chart after hours

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    just ok, lousy raises, always short staffed

    CNA (Current Employee)
    Danville, PA

    Prosi haved worked here for 6 years. The best part of being here is simply job security, health benefits at a cheap cost and retirement

    Consyou as an employee of such a great caliber are just one in a number. There are no pat on the backs for job well done and again, for such a HUGE money making buisness, many of the staff, especially nursing whether liscensed or not make piddles for what we endure twelve- 16 hours a day. Lousy financial help for wmployees to go back to school. The gas station Sheetz offers better tuition reimbursment

    Advice to Senior Managementstart caring about your staff. Offer better help for us to go back to school and better pay for all the hard work we do every day

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    it is just a job to me

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Danville, PA

    ProsI make decent money for the job I do

    Conssupervisor is worthless. can't fill in when there is no coverage because they cannot do what the other employees do

    Advice to Senior Managementmake sure your managers can do the job they ask their employees to do

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    The health system is great the particular department I work in is a different story

    Research (Current Employee)
    Danville, PA

    ProsPositivies include:
    A good amount of paid vacation time
    Great Reputation
    Flex time avaliable

    ConsThe research department plays favorites if you are friends with your boss you can put in few hours a day. Managers tend to be young and inexperienced thus lots of gossip. If you can get in this crowd you will be fine working here, otherwise gain your experience and move on!

    Advice to Senior ManagementDevelop an understanding of all projects your employees are working on not just the ones you manage perhaps evaluations will be more inclusive that way. Please don’t discuss with "low level" employees how much extra money is in the budget when you can't pay them fair wages!
