    I worked at Genesis HealthCare

    Pros

    This company has a great organizational vision. Benefits are good and there is opportunity to grow within the organizational structure of the company.

    Cons

    It is hard to regulate the individual sites within the large holdings of this company and therefore, each location can present as a good or poor work opportunity. Re: the low grading for culture and values--I would rate GenesisHealthCare corporate higher overall, but the I chose to rate the individual site where I was employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should have more presence within the individual sites to observe what truly is happening as opposed to that which is annotated on paper or reported by the facility's administration.

    I have been working at Genesis HealthCare full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Benefits almost start immediately. Thorough orientation. One of the nicer facilities I've seen in LTC (even behind the scenes).

    Cons

    Orientation not on the shift you'll be working (when things are a lot different on each shift). No real money for all the hard work especially in the area I live... hard to live off this income. Co-workers are more of an issue than the residents.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create another program to help employees further their education so they'll stay with the company and to have a lower turnover rate.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The company tries to create a dynamic environment

    Cons

    This company overloads most employees, which causes a lot of turnover. When I was there that is why most people left when Genesis bought our buildings. Not that these people were scared of hard work, but Genesis made it ridiculous. They compromised care for paperwork.

    I worked at Genesis HealthCare full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    made some good friends along the way

    Cons

    It has been several years since I left this company, and I see the same complaints over and over again. Don't expect any changes,They must know but clearly don't care. If you want to have your vacation time denied, don't mind working overtime for no compensation, be OK with being sent home if you don't meet your productivity for the day, have no qualms about overtreating or treating inappropriate (not to mention actively dying) patients, this is the company for you!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    One of these days, a gov't audit will be your undoing.

    Pros

    Challenging, good education offered from the corporate level.

    Cons

    They say one thing, than do another. Poor education in the facility, DON doesn't even follow policies of the company, but corporate sides with them anyway.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to who you give a management position to.
