    I worked at Community Medical Center (Scranton) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Pay was decent. Hiring process was a breeze. Can't think of anything else positive.

    Cons

    Never praised, treated badly by managers, too much overtime - and a lot of pressure to work extra shifts, benefits weren't that great

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees that you value their work. Would have loved to hear "good job" once in awhile.

    I have been working at Community Medical Center (Scranton) part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Now known as GCMC since purchased a few years ago by Geisinger Health System. A very good learning experience since it is a level 2 trauma center.

    Cons

    GCMC is still trying to break away from its "old" ways and embrace the Geisinger way. There have been a lot of changes in the last few years in personnel and equipment.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to remember not everything has to be "by the book". There is interpretation of the rules in everything. Its is understandable that "you" are trying to make a good impression with Geisinger, but employee is not always wrong.

    I worked at Community Medical Center (Scranton) part-time

    Pros

    Some excellent staff who work like sled dogs, highly dedicated to patient care and teamwork. Great learning experience for those who are motivated and self starters.

    Cons

    Working harder, being talented or a team player gets you no more recognition or appreciation then someone who kicks their feet up on the desk to read a magazine. Administrative management is clueless and absent.

    Advice to Management

    Spent 5 years there as a tech and became an RN. My seniority was reset to ZERO the day I finished nursing school. Pay and schedule given my new lack of status created problems. I got a second job and was then told that despite 8 months of training and graduation from orientation that since I had not been a nurse for more then 1 year, I would not be allowed to work part time. When given the choice between financial security for my family or CMC, the choice was simple. Any company that can't understand this is not worth working for. Hopefully now that Geisinger has taken over things have improved. I know plenty of great nurses who left CMC to work at Wyoming Valley ER and did not regret the change.

    Pros

    Great people, friendly place to work. Just like a family. It was more than just a job

    Cons

    Smaller hospital (growing much bigger now that Geisinger took over)

    Pros

    The nursing staff is wonderful. They trully know a team approach and are competent and skilled.They are compassionate and professional. The staff will work together to adjust schedules to help each other .

    Cons

    The management does not treat staff fairly, at times degrading. The lack of professionalism in management is tremendous.Complaints to administration go unnoticed. There is a great need for staff inservices. Many departments are staffed by agency and are unknowledgable as to what the hospital has. Salaries are unfair among staff members and specialities.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to staff!!!! When complaints are offered, please investigate. If all the department is dissatissified, then it is not a personal grievance. When physicians are complaining, please listen! You have excellent nurses in your facility that are unrecognized due to the inability of management to properly manage. If the productitivity of a department declines, administration should be investigating what the reason is. That investigation should also include the effectiveness of the department manager.While you have some managers that should be replaced, you do have managers that the staff supports completely, those are the leaders that go above and beyond. Those leaders provide the educational opportunities for staff, and act like true professionals.
