    Pros

    Well selected management. Management are leaders and not bosses. Coworkers are like family. Forward thinking hospital. Listens to employees and their inputs on ways to make improvements.

    Cons

    Parking is far away but there's not much that be done about that and it comes with the territory of a big hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Geisinger full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Patients receive excellent care and policy of patient focus makes a good place to work. Doing the "right" thing for a patient is always supported.
    Overall, excellent people who are well qualified.
    Excellent benefits (arguably make up for low to midranger salaries)
    Excellent equipment
    Excellent speciality providers (despite "churn")
    Excellent IT

    Cons

    Staff pushed to limit with patient load/expectations
    Floor, department and facility managers pushed to/past limits by upper management expectations that are not based on resources.
    Upper echelons seem to create hoops to jump through, often due to misinterpretations of law
    Salaries are, at best, midrange and they cannot easily retain high end talent.
    Many of best providers consistently leave

    Advice to Management

    Cut "training" in regulatory issues in half (i.e." GOALS")
    Suck it up and increase providers by about 25%; your people are being beat to death
    If you can't recruit first rate physicians at current salaries, then raise salaries
    Stop expansion until base is shored up
    Invest in bricks and mortar where needed (Wilkes Barre)

    I worked at Geisinger full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in the IT department and enjoyed my time here. I think GHS takes care of their IT folks for the most part. I also enjoyed the beneifits, matching 401k, time off, etc!

    Cons

    The doctors get their way in regards to everything
    IT still does a lot of stuff manually instead of automation...it's kind of silo based and every department just does what a Doctor asks them to do.

    Pros

    Easy work, good pay and benefits

    Cons

    Hard to advance because a lot of favoritism. Some people who are considered favorites get away with not doing their job while employees who do get criticized other everything. Good job for the person who wants to feel like they are in high school again.

    Advice to Management

    Start praising people who actually do their job.

    Pros

    Friendly employees, decent benefits. Compassionate staff who truly care for the work they are doing. Not much else to say

    Cons

    This organization does not value internal employees, nor do they promote growth. Mediocre holiday offering at best. Additionally, can greatly improve PTO policy to ensure proper work life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You should work to retain employees who work for you while they are students. You lose valuable, highly educated resources due to a lack of interest or investment in development.
