      One of the BEST places I have ever worked

      Pros

      Due to having a toddler in daycare, lets face it, they end up sick.. A Lot! GHP was understandable, they gave a great work life balance and allowed me to make up time without question without using PTO. They recognized you for your accomplishments and always made you feel apart of the team without excluding you, that's very hard to come by. GHP, also held celebrations to break away from work such as a Snow Crawl, Tailgate, Potlucks, Icecream socials with also need to use PTO to attend. Overtime was always allowed. Management allowed you to do your job without hovering over you.

      Cons

      Low pay, couldn't find room to grow.

      Pros

      Decent benefit package Decent work life balance

      Cons

      very low pay with high level of responsibility and little oversight Top heavy with managerial positions Does not concentrate on competitive wages for actual caregivers. Management positions, IT and ancillary positions are better pay and less stress. Needs to care for the actual caregivers. its a Hospital! If we are not here there is no hospital

      Pros

      I have nothing positive to offer here unfortunately other than its a good hospital for patients but I did not enjoy working here

      Cons

      No one actually tells you what to do. On countless occasions I got put in rooms with people knowing nothing about what I was or wasn't allowed to do as far as the patient went. Spent countless hours in rooms with patients that threatened to kill me bc their mental state was so far gone. Crazy hours low pay absolutely not worth the headache that comes with this position.

      Pros

      can't think of anything

      Cons

      this hospitals wants to give employees as little as possible. 1.SCHEDULING - it is a nightmare to attempt scheduling a day off. every thurs-sun is permanently closed the only way to get off is have someone else pick up your day. - they 6 rotating schedules that include atrocious 8 and 7 day stretches permanently every few weeks. - rarely will you ever get to take breaks. the requires breaks are a 30min and two 15 min. I have never been permitted to take the 15 min breaks and can barely get in a 30min at least twice a week you get no breaks. PAY - the pay is very low here. I moved to the area and went from making $29 to $22. - second and third shift get the same differential =1.75!!!!! I have never heard of such a low diff - when you add overtime to your time cars for not getting any breaks you are attacked by your supervisor and told you are not aloud to just add overtime for not taking break. - employees use to get discounts at the very expensive atrium cafe, they took it away since I'm sure 3/4 of the sales are from employees. a salad. from the salad bar will cost you min $7 for a basic salad no meats COWORKERS - the majority of the work force here is over 50 yrs old. seems like most of the employees are ready to retire - miserable ppl who don't want to teach or be questioned by new employees. - very set in their ways you hear the classic "that's the way we've always done it" just about everyday. no one wants to hears your suggestions and ideas for improvement OVERALL Geisinger owns every hospital in this area so without moving you will have to deal with the nonsense,low pay, and employee abuse. this hospital does not treat employees well at all, it's really sad. i could never recommend working here to anyone

      Pros

      Nice clean and fancy hospital, great ideas.

      Cons

      Overabuse of middle-managers. Used a "village" approach to running the floors and either you were in or out. Very low pay. Threats from lower management. Inadequately educated managers.
