    Pros

    The pay is great and the benefits are affordable. I like that you get incentive bonuses also.

    Cons

    People are backstabbers and its like high school al over again.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management needs to take responsiblity for the action of all employees and not just certain ones.

    Great career starter at the Center for Health Research

    Former Employee - Research Assistant
    Former Employee - Research Assistant

    I worked at Geisinger Health System part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    It seemed to me that Geisinger really does want its employees to be content. I learned so much about the system during orientation. They made me feel part of a whole.

    Cons

    It is the largest employer in the area, so one may feel faceless. It has nothing to do with Geisinger itself, but it can be lonely to live in the country if you're not used to it.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I loved that this is a not for profit. They seem to have a great organization, and do a lot for the community and employees. They gave me a great internship opportunity while I was in college, and then I was offered a full time position with them within a year after graduation. I've gained a lot of experience and worked with great people in my time here.

    Cons

    Recently, it feels like geisinger is getting too big for their britches. Whether they didn't prepare for obamacare, or have overextended themselves with buying and building too many new facilities. Now they're cutting costs wherever they can and its putting a strain on employees. It's only a matter of time before patients begin to take notice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop looking at the money in your wallet and look at what you're cutting and how it is affecting your employees and their ability to care for patients!

    Good pay and decent benefits, but they don't value their loyal employees.

    I worked at Geisinger Health System

    Pros

    The pay is one of the best in the area for registered nurses. The benefits are decent.

    Cons

    They do not value loyal employees. Those with years of service are being sent home because of over staffing instead of sending home based on seniority. Raises were poor despite huge profits and promotions and hiring have been on a freeze for a while now. Don't bother if you are looking to make any moves up the ladder because it will likely not happen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start showing appreciation for your employees who give so much to the organization. Don't ask employees to perform the duties of supervisors and then not compensate them appropriately.

    Pros

    Large system for employees to move around.

    Cons

    Company is growing too quickly, buying up health systems and hospitals and has been in a "job freeze" for a few months now.

    Geisinger is a great hospital system to work for.

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

    Pros

    Geisinger is a large hospital system and has many areas in which a person can work in. From nursing to research there really is a job for everyone here. The benefits and compensation are good and there is always room to move around and/or to advance within.

    Cons

    The challenges of working here is the growth of the company which is moving 10 times faster than the people working here. Geisinger has taken over many hospitals within the past two years and the continued growth means, the need for more office space and work space.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Geisinger advocates for employee wellness.
    Also, most positions are salary not hourly. During my time there, Geisinger was experiencing a hiring freeze, so overtime was not prevalent.

    Cons

    I did not experience many, as I was an intern. I was not benefits eligible.
    By watching others, promotions only offered when another position became vacant.
