    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedule for DOR, great team of therapists and colleagues.

    Cons

    GRS keeps taking things away from their long term EE's. DOR doesn't get PAID adequately...or even near what competitors pay. the Therapists make same or $1-2 less than manager... Responsibilities of DOR increase with no pay increase or appreciation of what they do (other than a simple "thanks"). Max merit is 2% for anyone. No WEB for managers working in own gym. since going public in Feb 2015, productivity and labor management are beaten to death. Old area director was amazing and a huge people person...GRS realigned and you guessed it, AD was moved and new AD came in. Now Use of Micromanagenent is an understatement. No autonomy. Little support from Area management team for DOR with troubled administrator/building. Annual reviews for management are NEVER done timely resulting in wating for increase and retro pay that gets messed up...then your asked to explain why #'s dont add up with the budget. :(
    Morale was fantastic for a couple years and coming to work was fun. I do still enjoy all my coworkers and staff...they are like family.... Problem really lies within Genesis corporate and their lack of humility and understanding the idea of taking care of your own people. Cuts, cuts and more cuts. Medical benefits went up and choices were decreased to (2). This is a healthcare company.... Where's the healthcare for your people who make GHC the $$$?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We realize healthcare is a business, but please, spend less time looking at one dinentional reports and more time living your promises. Take a poll of your AD's and see and follow them thru their day. Notice if they have (+) influence on others or if scare tactics and lack of transparency are being used. Recognize hard work/dedication before the 10year marker. Look at WHY people are leaving Genesis and take action to correct the flaws. You have great theories but in reality its a bust! Remember, PCH is just a number...we deal with sick and needy human beings everyday... Doesn't the compassion, care and quality treatment count for something.... Maybe you should generate a report for that!

    Pros

    Abundant resources for new practitioners on internal website and via educational calls, opportunities for specialization if you're willing to put the time and effort in while balancing an already challenging caseload

    Cons

    Low pay, huge emphasis on productivity, unrealistic amount of documentation in time allotted, high stress, genesis has no problem giving a new grad 4 evaluations in one day or consistently giving a new grad an average of 2 evals daily on top of a schedule of nothing but progress reports and re certifications

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unrealistic expectations need to stop somewhere

    Pros

    Room for growth, company loves to hire internal, lots of room to move up the ladder.

    Cons

    Healthcare company that got rid of Short Term Disability. Seems a bit asinine

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make more of an effort to connect departments. So everyone has an idea of what the next mans job entails, could build more of a comrade on the job, more respect for one another with respect upwards the job.

    Former Employee - Charge Nurse

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Paid life insurance
    direct deposit
    floating holiday
    credit union affiliation
    good staff development

    Cons

    no company contribution to 401K
    Poor DNS/communicator
    Poor communication in changes that arise
    No admission nurse
    The facility states the admission process is a 24 hour timeframe. Never did the following shift follow up or would offer.
    Favoritism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    DNS needs to get out of the office to become pro active to see what is going on the units. Never followed though on things that were implemented; just "thought they were in place". Poor followup and communication.

    Pros

    Great educational opportunities and online university for CEUs.

    Cons

    Hard to get time off to take advantage of educational opportunities. Have to ask of 4 months in advance. Burns you out. Treats full time staff like PRN sending 1 therapist to 3 different SNF in on day to cover sick coworkers.
