    Pros

    Good benefits, great staff with tremendous passion to serve the members, great mission, fair compensation for the area, generally stable.

    Cons

    Trying to grow faster than they know they should but are doing it anyway. Trying to be all things to all people. Many business processes are error prone with little IT assistance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus of what you do well and do it even better. Take a serious look at the tools the front line staff has to accomplish their work and make improvements where necessary.

    Pros

    Great atmosphere with people always willing to help out in times of need. Culture of willingness to adapt in an ever changing industry.

    Eliminate fear of big changes or layoffs by laying out a strategy to deal with changes in healthcare as well as with the company.

    The best thing about working at Geisinger is that you are surrounded by smart people all working together toward one common goal.

    What is most challenging is moving the companies focus to one that has a more balanced business objective focus.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We need to focus on the bottom line and not be distracted with projects that ultimately drain our resources and capital.

    Pros

    The people are great and very hard working. Most take a pride in their work. Hopefully the new IT VP will recognize the potential and clean house.

    Cons

    Poor management especially at the Director level. Culture not friendly to change. Not a good place for consultants. Consultants are treated like second hand citizens. What ever you do do not question the old guard. Consultants are placed based on the firm and not qualifications. Some departments are not open to all nationalities,,,,IT QA. Project managment office poorly manage and is based on loyality (brown nosers) and not performance. BA management one of the worst encountered even through they have some excellent BA's. They like Project managers just don't stay long. atleast 7 project mangers left in the past 7 months. Great place for an employee bad place for a consultant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Revamp the Project management department. Replace the old guard that inhibits growth. other wise don't change a thing.
