    Pros

    The ability to transfer within the agency.

    Cons

    There a lack of team work. All the work is placed on the new hired person. Extremely stressful and very demanding. Favoritism and lots of clicks. Lack of accountability in some workers time.

    Advice to Management

    To evenly divide the work among employee. To treat all employees the same. To leave friendship outside the work environment.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Salary was great. Co-workers were amazing people. The job itself was rewarding and left me thankful for my health and youth at the end of every day. Taught me life lessons I otherwise would not have had. The team work was the best I have ever experienced and rarely was there any "drama" or issues in my department.

    Cons

    Big changes in management took my direct manager and his manager (Regional) away and put in new people who had no idea what they were doing. Vacation had to be planned for the year and if not, you were written up for taking time without prior approval. Very strict rules enforced by new manager (lots of write ups came, even 2 in one day for some & another on their birthday). This caused a fallout and most of my fantastic team including myself, left.

    Advice to Management

    If a location or division is successful, don't make changes.

    Pros

    Meeting the patients...making them feel at home. Friendly co-workers esp. Sine, Monica & Vince, convenient hours

    Cons

    Pay, nurses eating the food, patients calling kitchen, no appreciation, and the dietary aide name Kia

    Advice to Management

    Pay more, make sure the rules apply to everyone, stop the calls to the kitchen while on tray line, put love into your food, put a muzzle on Kia

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers. Salary is decent. Benefits are OK but getting less each year. Good opportunity to earn free CEU's. They pay for AOTA membership.

    Cons

    Pressure to get minutes!! Many "FT" therapist assistants now hired at 30 hrs\wk but must be willing to work up to 40 when needed. No overtime allowed at many facilities. Bsically they want you to be available when they need you but go home.

    Advice to Management

    I have never worked for a co. that showed absolutely no appreciation to its employees like Genesis. 3 yrs and no one got so much as an attaboy or a lousy Christmas card.
