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

    Pros

    Lots of on-the-job training, in a didactic and clinical setting. Continual educations required and optional workshops, conferences encouraged. Yearly raises, accomodative of health limitations.

    Cons

    Challenges with scheduling preferences - there are ultimately very little. Seniority in the nursing staff plays a huge role. Raises can be quite small. No "consistent, set" shifts on inpatient units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is excellent, especially when your manager works alongside the whole staff on the floor.

    I worked at Geisinger Health System full-time

    Pros

    There are some great people who care about what they are doing. The pay is relatively good for the region.

    Cons

    I can't speak for the patient care side of the house. But behind the scenes, it is a bureaucratic nightmare. Departments cannot or will not cooperate with one another, everyone throws red tape in every direction to defend their own little piece of the territory, and management is uneven and unpredictable. On top of that, Geisinger is basically the biggest employer in the region for many fields, and they know that they're the only game in town, so they treat employees accordingly.

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

    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.
