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

    Pros

    The hours were consistent, the schedule fit nicely with my life. I enjoyed going to work because of those I worked with. Despite the facility we were stationed at wasn't up to par, the people made the stay more homey.

    Cons

    The conflict between nursing and therapy, whether it be scheduling or medications, what have you. Over the years, with a lot of hard work, it got better, but overall, that was one of the biggest challenges faced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. If you have a qualified, hard-working candidate, don't take them for granted. Showed them they are wanted/needed, i.e. raise, promotion etc. I think upper management gets too caught up in their PM meetings and such to have time for those who are actually at the home caring for the residents.

    Pros

    Pretty good benefits, great prescription benefit, good ceu free ones on website, training's available. A fair amount of locations, some good upper management staffl

    Cons

    Too high productivity, decreased to 30 hour work week, all you can take for a weeks worth vacation. Can work up to 40 hours if there is the need. Documentation on I touch difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Decrease productivity rate, unattainable to give good pt care and not stress out your workers. I stay late all the time to write good notes and get my work done. Can't give good pt care if have to document all the time during the day- to make productivity standards!. Difficult getting answers from HR dept. Also way to long on hold if have IT problems.

    Pros

    Better than average wages, good weekend differential

    Cons

    Not enough staff. Upper management is unrealistic with patient to staff ration

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you don't overwork your staff by hiring a little more staff, you will retain the good ones you have because they won't be so overworked that they quit

    Pros

    Always learning and never bored.

    Cons

    Terrible Benefits even with many years of service. No appreciation for their employees.

    Benefits reduced each year and now no longer providing short term disability.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has asked the employees to give to them over the last few years. Talking points always included: "just be glad you have a job" and "these cuts are making us stronger in our industry" Now your employees cannot afford any life and work part time to pay their lousy benefits co-pays.

    Welcome to hell

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare

    Pros

    Good pay
    You'll develop charactor, as you try to keep your head above water
    You'll become knowledgable and proficient trouble shooting electronics, heating issues, and missing laundry
    You will know what you don't want in your next job, and when it's time to walk away

    Cons

    Poor staffing all departments
    Very focused on making a profit at the expense of the residents
    High turnover
    No staff appreciation- ever!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat people as you want the residents treated
    Hire enough staff to care for the residents, clean ( 1 housekeeper for 50 residents is no doable)
    cheese curls should not be a puréed food item.
    You can't pass off the rust surrounding the bathroom fixtures as burgundy paint
    Urine is never a pleasurable odor
