Excellent first job, yet little opportunity for career advancement

Research Assistant (Current Employee)
Danville, PA

ProsThe Geisinger Center for Health Research (CHR) is a state-of-the-art research building that provides a great atmosphere and confortable workspace. The coworkers are friendly and highly team-oriented with high morale. The benefit package is generous and employees have access to plenty of healthcare resources. Employees also have a fair amount of say in the job functions that they perform.

Consthe education requirements and job description do not accurately line up with the actual job functions and pay. Therefore, all too often do overqualified employees take positions in the CHR only to leave shortly afterwards for better career opportunities (and pay). Upward mobility is severely hindered as seasoned employees are often overlooked for promotions in favor of overqualified new-hires. This has caused an environment of very high turnover rates (under a year for positions such as research assistant and project coordinator), with employees often leaving shortly after they are trained to adequate performance. While this is commonplace in many industries, it has perhaps more of an impact on such a research institution where projects which span several years rely on consistency.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    lots of patients

    Staff Physician (Surgical Specialist) (Current Employee)
    Danville, PA

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System


    Pros: Good, standard benefits package, mature electronic medical record system Cons: located in a small town and far from a major city or airport, too many patients squeezed into short appointments; detrimental since many… Advice to Senior Management: follow a provider around seeing the clinic patients, having to get a history, review medications, surgery, imaging studies (takes longer if done… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
