  1. The Worst Company I ever worked for in 17 yrs.

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

    Pros

    I Love working with older people. My Coworkers were a great group of people to work with.

    Cons

    I have never worked where management that was so condescending and disrespectful to all of us Therapists. All that upper management was worried about was PRODUCTIVITY. The benefits are very expensive and it is not 100% coverage. Also, the deductibles are high.. When I left, I had 13 vacation days It is a Genesis policy NOT to pay you for any remaining vacation days you may have. I thought this was illegal, but I called the state and it is not unfortunately. In my 20 yrs. of employment, I NEVER did not receive payment for my unused vacation days.

    Advice to Management

    If you treat your well deserving employees with respect and kindness, you will get ten fold in return!

    Little opportunity for advancement unless your a "favorite"

    Pros

    Funny that pros are mandatory. There are no pros about this company. Free toilet paper maybe? You're allowed to take lunch? Maybe executives are the only ones that see the pros because they're the ones that get taken care of...

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. Management treats people like they are expendable. Compensation for all roles is well below market value. If you desperately need a job, and this is the only place that takes you, accept your offer. But jump ship as soon as you find a better opportunity. This company does not care about its employees at all. Management would rather keep all of the money for themselves. There's also no room for growth (not even laterally). Also, as a last note, I left when I found a better opportunity.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many execs for no reason. Lean out. Fire the managers who don't actually manage. Having lazy managers and execs does nothing for your company.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Therapy coworkers are nice, as most therapists (anywhere) are great

    Cons

    This is probably the WORST company I've ever worked for. Never have I felt so uncared for. The company provides the worst health insurance I have ever had and it's not cheap. There is a 10,000 max out of pocket annual expense (for out of network), and having a baby this year, I will blow through that and the 10,000 out of pocket annual expense for my future beloved baby (so 20,000 total), taking money out of our baby's mouth so to speak, despite paying 300/ month for each plan. How can a health care company demonstrate they care so little about the basic needs of their employees? Yet, despite this, they make employees jump through ridiculous hoops so that their premiums don't go up. Try calling the benefits hotline or someone from HR and you will be in cue for atleast an hour and if you leave messages no one will get back to you, so you have to spend your off time chasing people down. The company (like all rehab companies) send you home when things slow, but unlike other rehab companies, have an insane amount of paperwork, so you are forced to basically ignore your patients all day to go through pages and pages of ridiculous paperwork so they cant be denied on their claims. And gear up for regular calls with the president who will complain profits are not high enough (for their shareholders and so they CEO can make even MORE money), all the while they are buying up buildings and expanding left and right, even growing into China and bragging about it, while they send you home and you can barely pay your bills.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to care a lot more about the basic needs of their employees and patients and less about profits for themselves and their shareholders. This company is making me hate my job and life.

    Pros

    I was a bit skeptical at first because everything was done through the Internet and live chat so it seemed fishy but at the end of the day it all worked out

    Cons

    Very fast paced but it will work out

    Great job keep it up
