    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.

    Cons

    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.

    Current Employee - Physical Therapist

    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.
