I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time (more than an year)

Pros

generous reimbursement good work environment nice co-workers

Cons

a bit mismanaged needs tougher administrators and more MD input on operations

Advice to ManagementAdvice

never ever compromise care of pt to let 3 or more MD/PA be off the same time; say tough luck you are not going to have vacation/CME -reschedule
your coworkers do not have to sacrifice their time

    Great institution. However, removed from urban amenities and poor pay.

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

    Pros

    - Fully integrated multispecialty medical group with mature EMR (EPIC).
    - Collaborating and communicating with colleagues is very easy.
    - Ability to provide gold standard of care to patients.
    - Capable and friendly colleagues.
    - Generous PTO and CME allowance.
    - Benefits from day 1.
    - Good retirement plan.
    - Ample opportunities for participating in committees, quality improvement projects, research and teaching.
    - Medical management is mostly receptive to ideas related to improving things around.
    - No traffic.
    - Patients are mostly respectful to healthcare workers in comparison to most cities.

    Cons

    - Low salary for some physicians (they were unable to afford to pay me the 10th percentile for my specialty)
    - Minimal raises.
    - Space is a premium for some departments. I did not have an office.
    - Removed from urban amenities (3 hours away from a real city)
    - Mediocre public schools with the exception of Lewisburg school district. No good private school alternatives.
    - Long commuting for outreach clinics for some specialties (20-90 miles)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Geisinger is buying smaller hospitals and expanding quickly. Please ensure that the "culture" is maintained in the newer institutions. Also, make an effort to retain MVP employees.
