    Pros

    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.

    Pros

    Great pay, work/life balance, emphasis on clinical care. Reimbursement is typically prompt.

    Cons

    Admittedly, it's a big organization, but the level bureaucracy is surprising sometimes. Simple things that should take days can easily take months.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work with compensation and benefits! See what you can do to streamline the credentialing process for care providers; waiting for 3 months is ridiculous.

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

    Pros

    I work in one of the smaller campuses. Overall, I'd say it's been a positive experience. Until recently I maintained full time status with regular hours and access to overtime when available. PTO policy is adequate, though can be difficult in scheduling at times. Tuition reimbursement is getting better and when I needed to drop to part time my manager was both reasonable and accommodating.

    Cons

    Getting reimbursement for CME's every 3 years is an unnecessarily difficult process.
    There is a bottleneck in lab as far as upward mobility, in the larger hospitals this doesn't seem to be as much of a deal but it can be difficult to look at doing the same thing day in and day out for 10+ years before consideration for any kind of promotion if you want to stay in the same location.

    Advice to Management

    Push for more emphasis on education, both CME and external, with reimbursement.
    Instead of larger bonuses the higher up the chain you go, give more attractive wages to personnel, especially those with significant/relevant educational backgrounds.

    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.
