    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.

    Doesn't Recommend

    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!!!!

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing benefits, reasonable healthcare cost, vision, dental, orthodontics, wellness program, 401k, LTD/STD, sick leave, personal time off, and more.

    Cons

    Little opportunity to advance, very political for job opportunities, little value for talented workforce

    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.

    Pros

    Nationally known for innovative healthcare, lots of opportunities to learn and add to skill set, good comraderrie among staff, good wellness program, great benefits, great immediate supervisor, who was one of the most knowledgeable people and greatest leaders I've ever worked with. Management pay is great, probably the best in the area. Staff pay is so-so, although I've heard it has improved for those lowest on the pay scale since I left. The organization definitely values its managers much more than its staff, although that may be changing under the new CEO's leadership. I think he is good for the organization but it takes a lot of time to change the culture of a 30K-employee organization.

    Cons

    A lot of management are elitists who have no idea how the other half lives, limited opportunities for advancement, although that was mainly only in my dept. at the time and I heard it wasn't the same in other departments. Terrible department head, who basically ran my dept. into the ground. A very complex organization to navigate.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and the job they do and be more focused on that and patient satisfaction rather than budgets and your own bonuses. Try to have some empathy for the plight of your staff rather than acting like elitists. Invest in the development of your and recognize them for their accomplishments in the form of promotions and/or greater financial compensation.
