I worked at Geisinger Health System

Pros

Nice clean and fancy hospital, great ideas.

Cons

Overabuse of middle-managers.
Used a "village" approach to running the floors and either you were in or out.
Very low pay.
Threats from lower management.
Inadequately educated managers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to trim some of the fat. Ie, only 1 manager per department rather that 15 people who think they know what they are doing.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System

    Pros

    good pay compared to smaller hospitals around. Good working with employees. Fun to to work with. Very knowledgeable doctors from prominent medical, dental and other medical backgrounds

    Cons

    Where do i start. First, manegment thinks they know what is best. They think they know everything there is to know about a certain field. Some of the administrators don't have a bacchelors degree. Most have an associates or some form of high school. They told me that I can't work extra hours but I can fill in on a shift. I do not get OT. I can only work a certain amount of hours and they yell at me when I make more than usual. They want the staff to work at its maximum x25, but have the minimalist amount of aid from other empoyees and attention of administrators. They want to cut corners by thinking they have more education than a doctor. The hosital is tp heavy. 600-650 doctors and about 300-450 nurses. The reest of the 3,000-5,000 employees are hospital administrators who do not generate income. Those are some of the main points. There are thousands of reasons. Gleen Steele wants to spend millions of dollars on new hospitals, but fails to realize that the hospital is short several hundred doctors, pharmasicts, nurses, Physical Therapists, dentists, and psychologists. There are always an endless supply of administators. For every one doctor, there are 4-5 other administators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a doctor degree and learn how the medical field works: medicine is different than dentistry and pharmacy is differnt than PT. Learn to be "laissez-faire" and have the doctors do what they do best, medicine and treating patients.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System

    Pros

    1) Geisinger is a trusted name, and there's a sense of pride in being a part of it.
    2) Geisinger has, in the past, cared deeply for their employees and their opinions
    3) Good leadership at Geisinger

    Cons

    1) Starting to get away from that sense of family that once was there
    2) Starting to be unbalanced, as far as who does what - no clear expectations

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it's of utmost importance that the employees feel as though their ideas and opinions matter. When that is lost, nothing else will matter.
