    competitive salary, great work environment, enjoy the academic environment/residents. collegial environment

    Cons

    governmental type nursing staff with inadequate physician to nursing/MA staffing ratio. Staff required to call back all biopsies and labs. inadequate staffing in clinics.

    Advice to Management

    Need to consider the impact on the patient satisfaction and experience and balance this with realistic patient expectations. To attract physicians to a difficult to fill location, this is imperative.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Culture shift in last two years moving to more layers contributing ideas and identifying problems. Long term employees in abundance; teamwork is not just a word but an expectation and it makes everyone's job better.

    Cons

    Still executive layers heavy, culturally older Caucasian men rule. Some salary ranges don't make sense. Still working to recover from direct patient care workforce reduction from 3 years ago .

    Advice to Management

    Be ahead on benefits and salaries instead of catching up. Better to have a line of applicants to choose from than have good employees leave for local positions for salary and/or benefits.

    Pros

    -Flexible schedule (only if your contracted)
    -Friendly coworkers
    -There are good restaurants in the area

    Cons

    -You have to work on site despite being contracted, you have to follow the dress code, and follow all standard employee rules without the benefits.
    -They will offer you a nice hourly rate but then you will be responsible for paying the taxes which means at the end of the year you can owe around 10k if you were working full time hours making your nice hourly rate not that great.
    -You don't get any of the benefits. They basically hire contracted workers so they can treat them like regular employees but not pay the benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees!!! You'd have much smaller turnover rate if you would just invest in your employees well being!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Providing employees with tuition reimbursement should align withadvancement opportunities. Obtaining a Masters degree should force a person to seek internships and employment outside of The organization. The Talebt Acquisition team should be available to all employees receiving tuition reimbursement to assist with employee retention during and after completing the degree.
