    Pros

    Great continuing ed resources and training. Productivity reasonable. The current facility I work at has a great rehab director. Good pay.

    Cons

    Not very good health insurance. Stop decreasing PTO time.

    Advice to Management

    Improve health insurance. Find other ways to cut costs versus cutting employee PTO. Do not cut pay.

    Pros

    Overall the company is okay. If you don't get the insurance package, they will offer you 10% increase.

    Cons

    If you take the 10 %, you will not accumulate any PTOs

    Advice to Management

    Each facility is different

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Amazing co-workers, wonderful team leader, great overall teamwork for most of my years there. I learned so much, and there was never a boring moment. Being bust constantly makes time fly! Positive reinforcement from Manager and Director, which goes a very long way as far as the effect on employee moral. They always did something really thoughtful for appreciation week, etc. They treated their staff with respect and understanding, which of course in turn fosters loyalty from staff. Many wonderful people throughout the company.

    Cons

    Benefits not affordable and almost seemed pointless, no 401(k) match.
     Poor overall communication throughout company as the company grew very quickly. Micromanagement in several departments, but not overall, which you're going to find at any company this large. Many employees were offended by the raises,when they were actually given. No fair system in place for raises either, so some employees take advantage by doing just the bare minimum amount of work, while others are forced to pick up that slack. No penalty for the slackers, no reward for the ones carrying more weight.

    Advice to Management

    Please don't underestimate the value of communication, when staff are uninformed it makes it twice as hard to do the jobs you pay them to do. Clear communication = efficiency. Employee Appreciation is very nice, please keep up the good work on this! Perhaps shop around for health insurance that is more affordable for company and staff. Also, you probably shouldn't push politics on your employees e.g. mandatory attendance when you invite someone to speak. It creates more resentment than anything else and is just not a tasteful practice.
    Also the centers are not held accountable in any way when they show complete disregard for policies and procedures., which is a nearly daily occurrence. This makes it nearly impossible to enforce anything, which of course results in chaos.
    Employees could do their jobs so much better if they had management backing them on the rules that are in place. This goes all the way up to the top, When centers are constantly granted an "exception" it simply becomes the norm.
