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

    Pros

    As an IT Analyst I still get to go self-directed research using a variety of resources and techniques. The town of Lewisburg is pleasant there are great natural attractions in the area.

    Cons

    Healthcare beauracracy still plays a substantial role in the ability for any person to get something done. There is also very little to do in north central Pennsylvania.

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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Constant 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 ManagementAdvice

    Listen 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.

    Pros

    Constantly growing and keeping up with new technology.

    Don't lose site of your current employees when you are growing larger. They are the foundation behind your success.

    Current Employee - Chaplain Resident in Danville, PA

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

    Pros

    An 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.

    Cons

    There 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep engaging the knowledge, insights, and ideas of the excellent people delivering great care at every level of the system.

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

    Pros

    Tradition 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.

    Cons

    Not 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Elitism 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 ManagementAdvice

    Even if I had advice I doubt they'd listen.
