    Pros

    I enjoy the atmosphere. Teamwork is evident on a daily basis. There is someone always willing to assist you or answer questions that you may have.

    Cons

    Pay rate is below average compared to other jobs in the area. Difficult to find the supplies that you need to work with at times.

    Advice to Management

    Find out more about new admits prior to accepting them.

    Pros

    Large resources available due to big company
    Locally very good team of committed therapists
    Flexibility to go work at other Genesis run facilities if census is low.

    Cons

    Lower pay than average
    Poor work-life balance
    Productivity is constantly monitored

    Advice to Management

    Adjust focus to patient outcome based and ease off on constant monitoring of productivity. If you are going to pay below average at least offer more vacation days. The personal days offer looks good on paper but somewhat difficult to attain in practice.

    Pros

    Very Ethical company. Good career ladder, promote from within. Lots of education/clinical resources. Company growth throughout the US and into China.

    Cons

    Since going public, eliminated positions and reassigned their duties, so those left are doing more with less without any increase in compensation. GRS more strictly managed than GHC. (GRS had wage freeze for 2+ years, GHC did not) Significant cut in healthcare options, increase in benefit costs. no 401k match for years.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what got you to where you are today. Unrealistic work demands will cause you to lose great employees.

    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 Management

    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!
