    Pros

    Many opportunities to travel within the company

    Cons

    Like most health care companies these days, Genesis cares more about productive employees than quality employees

    Advice to Management

    Don't let the pressure from those above you cause you to pressure those below you to be unethical in their patient care.

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

    Pros

    Was right off the highway. Decent commute. Co-workers were great, for the most part.

    Cons

    Terrible communication between Supervisors and Directors who for the most part are not in the same office as staff due to the Sun Acquisition some years ago. RCM model became more about time limits and the bottom line as opposed to listening to staff and their needs in accomplishing their jobs. Health care premiums are ridiculous for a Healthcare company. No 401K match for years now, no cost of living raises whatsoever. Sad for such a large company. Bonuses for CEO and CFO, etc. but nothing for anyone else.

    Advice to Management

    Why, then won't take any advice or suggestions so why waste my time here...

    Pros

    flexible work hours, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    no salary increases for years. more and more and more responsibilities dumped on remaining employees after many rounds of layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Clinicians are the revenue generators, we get it. You still have to care about corporate employees.

    Pros

    The actual job is easy. The union reply actually attempts to do what they can

    Cons

    They pay is terrible you get no raises the facility is not. Gated on the outside so our cars get broken into and stolen. They won't reimburse you or even attempt to make sure there is a working camera

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

    Pros

    the team I built was the only pro; salary was adequate; gym space in this building was very large

    Cons

    expensive health insurance; upper management was not supportive; the employees were allowed to bully other employees; the staff member being bullied was the one to be terminated; DOR was expected to do 4 hours per day of patient care and run a department with 6 full time staff and a caseload of 35 to 45 patients; the number of meetings and conference calls cause the DOR to work 14 hour days;

    Advice to Management

    listen to your DOR's; stop micromanaging the buildings; reduce the number of conference calls; have HR do the new hire paperwork instead of the DOR

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have had an awesome team but it doesn't last long. Anyone who is for the benefit of their patients won't make it long in this company. There aren't really any pros. The company has went down hill. Glad to know it is not just my area.

    Cons

    Upper management brushes everything under the rug. No one ever takes responsibility for their actions or lack there of. Should be reported for medicare fraud. Disrespectful to therapist. You know, the ones out there making them the money. Therapist are either without work or spread thin and no in between. When your facility doesn't have work be prepared to cover another facility or vitality rather it is 5 minutes but probably 45-60 minutes away. And please do not express concerns for seeing patients for 15 minutes. It is always your fault for not having patients..."I would like you to write an Improvement plan on how you plan to increase your caseload and productivity to 80%."

    Advice to Management

    So much advice but no one listens....HR pushes it under the rug....that rug is going to get pretty high soon.

    Pros

    Nothing, there is no room for advancement. They don't appreciate their employees. All they worried about is the budget. What about taking care of the patients

    Cons

    They work u like a dog and the pay sucks. They took a lot of benefits away. They don't match your 401(k). It's hard working for a company and I don't feel appreciated. The administrator don't even say hello to her employees. Genesis Severna Park is just not the place to work

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees feel appreciated

    Fairly good pay at first sight, but not for the demands they put on you.

    Learn that people's lives are more important than money.

    Pros

    Paid vacation, flexible hours, can transfer easily

    Cons

    Poor communication, poor management of therapists, lack of appreciation toward therapists, only care about meeting minutes for RUG levels. High productivity standards. Will cut your hours if they want to. They advised me to find a part time job when they unexpectedly gave my hours to a salaried employee.

    Advice to Management

    Don't treat your therapists so poorly, like we are easily replaceable. Also, provide raises to employees.
