I worked at Geisinger Health System

Pros

Orientation, training, and continued education awesome. Fellow employees great to work with. Good health insurance. Hospital and nurses known and respected in community.

Cons

Management not nurse oriented. Management doesn't back up nursing staff. Staff ratios need improvement on some floors. Agency nurses favored over staff nurses. Employee schedules made around agency schedules. Should be the other way around.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support nurse needs better. Management needs to spend more time on hospital floors and less time in office to understand needs.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System

    Pros

    i haved worked here for 6 years. The best part of being here is simply job security, health benefits at a cheap cost and retirement

    Cons

    you as an employee of such a great caliber are just one in a number. There are no pat on the backs for job well done and again, for such a HUGE money making buisness, many of the staff, especially nursing whether liscensed or not make piddles for what we endure twelve- 16 hours a day. Lousy financial help for wmployees to go back to school. The gas station Sheetz offers better tuition reimbursment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start caring about your staff. Offer better help for us to go back to school and better pay for all the hard work we do every day

    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.
