    I worked at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very PA-friendly environment. Physician's allow PA's to practice a comfortable level of independence in decision making while still providing plenty of oversight to ensure patient safety.

    Cons

    Difficult, as with any large hospital system to keep up with the constant changes in policies and procedures. Otherwise, the company is large enough to be a leader in medicine, while small enough to not be a nameless face among others.

    Pros

    Wonderful working with the Nurses and Doctors, Geisinger is very open to Spiritual Care of the patient. The Doctors and Nurses include the Chaplain in all manner of care. Loved working there!

    Cons

    Because Spiritual Care is not a "money making entity" sometimes the Supervisors are less than adequate.
