Geisinger Review

Doctor (Current Employee)

I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time for more than 8 years

ProsVery good salary. Cheap cost of living. Cheap housing. Surrounded by many tired fellow docs.

ConsConstant demand to work harder yet Geisinger cannot provide support due to constant cost cuts. Revolving door as many docs are leaving all the time. Many services have few available providers.

Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the doctors who make make 1/2 of what you make. Stop being a yes man to the higher level administrators. Stop thinking any doc who leaves is expendable and easily replaced.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

An Unexpected Healthcare Gem

Chaplain Resident (Current Employee)
Danville, PA

I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time for less than a year

ProsAn organization-wide focus on using data from research and experience to provide the best possible patient care. Great support for people who want to grow in their field. Opportunities in all aspects of healthcare, with motivated colleagues from around the world.

ConsThere is intensifying pressure to find ways to do more with less resources, both from a culture of continuous improvement and from a marketplace heavily influenced by one consumer that is less able to pay for requested services each year.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep engaging the knowledge, insights, and ideas of the excellent people delivering great care at every level of the system.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A robust and meaningful spiritual care learning environment.

Chaplain-Resident (Current Employee)
Danville, PA

I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time for less than a year

ProsTradition of chaplaincy and spiritual care stretching back decades. Chaplains integrated with healthcare throughout the hospital. Opportunity to learn in classroom and in practice from experienced professionals.

ConsNot much social life in North Central PA. Culturally about 20 years behind the rest of the US (though I guess that could be a pro as well in some ways)

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep engaging the treasure-trove of ideas and ability of the many people who make the Geisinger System go. They are the real strength of this system that continues to evolve new ways of bringing great affordable health care to a rural area.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

good and bad

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Geisinger Health System for more than 8 years

ProsDecent pay.
Working environment depends a lot on your department.
Job security.
Nice people with some exceptions.

ConsElitism and arrogance at the higher levels.
Understaffed for the growth ambition.
The insurance/hospital relationship is shady. How can the insurer and the provider technically be one and the same?

Advice to Senior ManagementEven if I had advice I doubt they'd listen.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Good Career choice- depending on what department you land in

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Danville, PA

I worked at Geisinger Health System full-time for more than 3 years

ProsProgressive health system-leader in health care, innovative. Truly focused on hiring bright, talented Physicians and Specialists.

Conscertain departments have high turnover, in part due to the cliques that are prominent. Watched many new college grads arrive with high hopes of fitting in and starting a promising career, only to be knocked down by leadership cliques. Especially true if you are an above average looking young woman. The other women, supposed leaders, can be brutal. Not all departments, worked in several that were just bad-.

Advice to Senior Managementmost middle managers really have no power/guts to do what is in the best interest of the department.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
