    I have been working at Geisinger Health System part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Supportive peers. Good schedule with real efforts made to accommodate individual needs

    Cons

    "Star" shifts... you have to stay late to finish cases (but you know the day is coming because it's on the schedule). Better cases go to the anesthesia residents, in fact entire department of anesthesia bends to residency requirements.

    Advice to Management

    Make a concrete commitment to education and satisfaction of all employees of the department of anesthesia.

    I have been working at Geisinger Health System full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Short walk from parking lot to the door

    Cons

    Very difficult working environment. Brood of vipers! Real snake pit! No respect or dignity given to nurses. They treat us like dirt. This is the worst job I have ever worked

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with respect

    Pros

    Great benefits, Great work environment overall.

    Cons

    Certain areas underpaid comparatively. IT Service Desk team does more support, with more technical knowledge, and earns less than other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Pay based on merit, and don't treat IT generalists as phone call operators.

    Pros

    Amazing upward mobility for driven individuals. Benefits, tuition reimbursement, PTO, flexibility. In my experience they understand life happens are willing to work with you if you maintain a positive attitude.

    Cons

    None really, it is still a business and it still has to maintain profitability at the end of the quarter. They reward hard work, not sloth.

    Advice to Management

    As Abigail Geisinger said, "Make it the best." Continue this mantra and Geisinger cannot help but succeed.

    Pros

    Great company to work for, excellent benefits, competitive pay and continued improvement across organization

    Cons

    Very little opportunity to grow career once you are in a position. External candidates are always chosen over internal candidates with many years experience.

    Advice to Management

    Prioritize internal candidates for hiring, given the dedication and years of experience. Geisinger has invested a lot of money in my education, I am dedicated and loyal to the mission and values, yet, recruiting minimizes my capabilities without allowing management to consider me first.
