    Pros

    Geisinger Careworks after-hours clinic offers flexible hours, great benefits and the management is helpful and involved in the care of patients, and someone is on call 24/7.

    Cons

    Sometimes, it is necessary for management to be on site for certain situations. The administrative office is located in Danville, and there at many clinics throughout the eastern region of pa.

    Pros

    A health system that is looking to improve the patient experience. The new CEO is very patient focused and is likely to improve the system.

    Cons

    This health system has fallen from the national spotlight to one that is not nationally ranked by us news and world report.

    Advice to Management

    This organization needs a lot of restructuring and a renewed focus on the patient. The new CEO is moving things that direction, but it will be a long time before it is realized.

    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

    Benefits and time off are good. 401k to 5%.

    Cons

    Understaffed and overworked. Perfection expected. Salaries are low. They actually rename jobs to put salaries at lower levels.

    Advice to Management

    Employees in all departments not just clinical should be valued

    Pros

    A large stable system, guaranteed to receive paycheck so long employed

    Cons

    Senior Management tries to hide mistakes, instead of doing process improvement. Practice of Medicine dictated by Danville - which is at least 20 years old!! Do not value good employee - employees are just a number!!
