    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare

    Pros

    I enjoy the people I work with. Good benefits, live CEU course and online CEUs, paid membership to your association, paid second state license.

    Cons

    Low hourly wages, low or no annual raises, very micromanaged by upper management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease micro management, do away with wage freeze.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, great prescription benefit, good ceu free ones on website, training's available. A fair amount of locations, some good upper management staffl

    Cons

    Too high productivity, decreased to 30 hour work week, all you can take for a weeks worth vacation. Can work up to 40 hours if there is the need. Documentation on I touch difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease productivity rate, unattainable to give good pt care and not stress out your workers. I stay late all the time to write good notes and get my work done. Can't give good pt care if have to document all the time during the day- to make productivity standards!. Difficult getting answers from HR dept. Also way to long on hold if have IT problems.

    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.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met many great co-workers along the way. There is usually the option of transferring to other buildings.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the honeymoon phase of working for Genesis wore off eventually. Overall, I found that the environment really depends on which specific building you work in. You may be a part of a team in which everyone is friendly, helpful, even socializes outside of work, or you end up working in a building where folks are uptight. I agree with other reviewers who mentioned a revolving door of staff. I had several, and I mean SEVERAL, different managers as an employee with Genesis. Seems they just can't hang onto managers for more than a year or so.
    My biggest disappointment came during my last 2 years working for Genesis. It seemed that more and more was being expected of us as employees, but that Genesis was very unwilling to budge re: hourly rate or any other incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that the "clique culture" needs to be addressed in many buildings. In the last building I worked in, it was as if there was a Rehab Illuminati that I was not part of. Only employees who were willing to drink the Kool-aid, so to speak, were in. On two particular occasions, I recall hearing information from my co-workers that I had shared with my manager in confidence. It was extremely disappointing to discover that my superior couldn't be trusted not to share information with her minions.

    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.
