    Large therapy team. Lots of online resources to draw on. Many buildings in the USA. Ability to transfer all over. Promotes therapists to management

    No raises currently. Very high productivity standards in my building. Lots of upper management has no idea how to provide quality therapy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lower productivity standards leads to better customer service.

    Pros

    Good pay rate, learn a lot

    Cons

    Bad management, vacation and benifits suck

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your employes, they are not as replaceable as you think. Pay is good for a healthcare company, but the benifits are lacking and expensive. Education reimbusement program closed. Management treat emplyees like a commodity, no respect. Vacation 2 weeks a year for the first 5 years, good luck trying to take any, you have to request vacation in summer 6-8months in advance.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Met many great co-workers along the way. There is usually the option of transferring to other buildings.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, the honeymoon phase of working for Genesis wore off eventually. Overall, I found that the environment really depends on which specific building you work in. You may be a part of a team in which everyone is friendly, helpful, even socializes outside of work, or you end up working in a building where folks are uptight. I agree with other reviewers who mentioned a revolving door of staff. I had several, and I mean SEVERAL, different managers as an employee with Genesis. Seems they just can't hang onto managers for more than a year or so.
    My biggest disappointment came during my last 2 years working for Genesis. It seemed that more and more was being expected of us as employees, but that Genesis was very unwilling to budge re: hourly rate or any other incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think that the "clique culture" needs to be addressed in many buildings. In the last building I worked in, it was as if there was a Rehab Illuminati that I was not part of. Only employees who were willing to drink the Kool-aid, so to speak, were in. On two particular occasions, I recall hearing information from my co-workers that I had shared with my manager in confidence. It was extremely disappointing to discover that my superior couldn't be trusted not to share information with her minions.

    Pros

    made some good friends along the way

    Cons

    It has been several years since I left this company, and I see the same complaints over and over again. Don't expect any changes,They must know but clearly don't care. If you want to have your vacation time denied, don't mind working overtime for no compensation, be OK with being sent home if you don't meet your productivity for the day, have no qualms about overtreating or treating inappropriate (not to mention actively dying) patients, this is the company for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of these days, a gov't audit will be your undoing.
