I worked at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Fast paced, excellent working conditions. Lots of learning opportunities for employees who seek them out. Access to world-class healthcare. Non-smoking environment. Emphasis on employee health; cafeteria has good healthy-eating choices and most locations have a place where employees can work out. Employer contributes to 401k (vested after 3 years). Can have prescriptions delivered directly to office.

Cons

The usual office politics, same as anywhere. Successful employees focus on their work and don't get involved. Employee parking is bad. Some managers reject viable solutions because they don't understand the new technology.

Advice to Management

Be aware of what's going on in your department.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    the 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.
