    Pros

    Paycheck,although quite low.close to home

    Cons

    Unsafe nurses led and colluded with building administration, co-inept midweek pro riders. Change is an ongoing threat and "needs to get there". Don't rock the boat. High liability risk potential trial. Physician leadership will tell you what you want to hear, Howeer in the end you are on a dangerous island alone.

    Advice to Management

    Clean house. Pinching pennies from pts., staff and providers. They tell dive howard huge perks and bonuses.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    None. We were bought by Genesis and the awesome team we had all left within the first year of Genesis taking over.

    Cons

    They aren't supportive or helpful. They are all about making money and the quality of patient care lacks. If you are short on staffing you somehow are suppose to raise your magic wand and fix it yourself. Absolutely no help from management but you are still suppose to answer why certain things weren't covered. So very happy I also decided to leave! They treated the traveling therapists terrible too! Some begged to get out of their contracts!

    Advice to Management

    Be more helpful. Listen. Respond. Act. Money is needed to make a business run but quality will bring in a profit. The lack of quality and push for making more money will eventually negatively affect you!!!

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Work overload, nearly everyday staff shortage, zero management support, filthy, dirty facility, blatant disregard for staff safety, training and orientation non-existent, poor benefits, constantly out of vital supplies, Company's only concern is money income.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company does see value in top talent and will try to accommodate life changes in order to keep their best.

    Cons

    Little to no pay increases, poor communication, poor execution in company vision. A lot of people in this company work a job instead of being part of a business.

    Advice to Management

    If this company wants to see better profit return they need to invest in executing a company vision that gets employees to understand the role they play in the bigger picture. Help employees understand even down to the CNAs how there jobs impact the business. Instead of only rewarding Admins and DONs with bonuses, create a profit sharing bonus for all center employees to participate in. Create an incentive program for all employees who promote patients to go to a genesis facility.

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

    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.

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

    Pros

    Long term staff really care about building and residents. Building is clean and free from odors. Good location, easy to get to from Hillsborough and pinellas county

    Cons

    Administration is degrading to staff, is not accessible, never on the floor to offer guidance, does not relay information to line staff. Company is for profit and has stopped giving raises and took paid holidays away.

    Advice to Management

    Be visible to line staff, be available for guidance, stop degrading employees

    Pros

    Will offer you top dollar for a full-time position. Dental and Vision benefits pretty good but not Medical.

    Cons

    They tell you full time but they can't meet your hours unless you go from one facility to another. Productivity expectations unreal! Unethical practices pushed on staff to keep up with productivity.

    Advice to Management

    Layoff on productivity and practice patient centered care. That's the whole purpose of skilled nursing facilities. Protect licensed staff and improve overall morale.
