    Pros

    Geisinger is a well respected name in the community. For nurses, there are frequent in-services and educational opportunities. Technology and equipment on the floor is reasonably up to date. Overall, there is sufficient ancillary staff. Benefits are good. Several RNs who work in other departments have had a much more positive experience at Geisinger.

    Cons

    The hospital is located in a very small community - not much going on outside of the hospital. In my department, management is inconsistent and unprofessional. It is not unheard of for staff nurses to be given negative feedback publicly on the floor. Several RNs who worked strictly as daytime or night nurses were told to work the opposite shift or face losing their job. Pay is less than what you could make in other parts of the state.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs more avenues of communication with staff nurses.

    Pros

    Geisinger as a system works very hard to provided excellent health care. People on the front lines of healthcare are committed to taking care of people and doing what is best for every patient!! We are one big family....taking care of your family. The model of "sickcare" is moving toward "wellcare" and prevention! There is a movement toward keeping the staff fit and well....that is financially wise and helps me feel committed to the system.

    Cons

    Its a big place....changes come slowly....or sometimes not at all. Lots of middle management types with little to do except try to justify there existence. We need fewer managers and more workers....at least in my department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the Executive Management has be Right on track....Im a big fan of Dr Steele. The cream does not rise to the middle....it rises to the top. If upper management wants to know what the rank and file workers think....ask them directly....Middle management may paint a surreal image of what is going on.....good or bad.
