    I worked at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced, excellent working conditions. Lots of learning opportunities for employees who seek them out. Access to world-class healthcare. Non-smoking environment. Emphasis on employee health; cafeteria has good healthy-eating choices and most locations have a place where employees can work out. Employer contributes to 401k (vested after 3 years). Can have prescriptions delivered directly to office.

    Cons

    The usual office politics, same as anywhere. Successful employees focus on their work and don't get involved. Employee parking is bad. Some managers reject viable solutions because they don't understand the new technology.

    Advice to Management

    Be aware of what's going on in your department.

    I worked at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Fully integrated multispecialty medical group with mature EMR (EPIC).
    - Collaborating and communicating with colleagues is very easy.
    - Ability to provide gold standard of care to patients.
    - Capable and friendly colleagues.
    - Generous PTO and CME allowance.
    - Benefits from day 1.
    - Good retirement plan.
    - Ample opportunities for participating in committees, quality improvement projects, research and teaching.
    - Medical management is mostly receptive to ideas related to improving things around.
    - No traffic.
    - Patients are mostly respectful to healthcare workers in comparison to most cities.

    Cons

    - Low salary for some physicians (they were unable to afford to pay me the 10th percentile for my specialty)
    - Minimal raises.
    - Space is a premium for some departments. I did not have an office.
    - Removed from urban amenities (3 hours away from a real city)
    - Mediocre public schools with the exception of Lewisburg school district. No good private school alternatives.
    - Long commuting for outreach clinics for some specialties (20-90 miles)

    Advice to Management

    Geisinger is buying smaller hospitals and expanding quickly. Please ensure that the "culture" is maintained in the newer institutions. Also, make an effort to retain MVP employees.
