Senior Therapist, Speech Language Pathologist (Current Employee), York, PA – November 30, 2013
I have had a very positive work experience. We work in conjunction with Country Meadows. The Leader Family has excellent & higher expectations for long term care. Genesis mirrors those same expectations.
MA Specialist (Former Employee), Baltimore County – November 25, 2013
Pros: fun activities, free outings, best palce to work nursing home
Cons: no cons
Everyday at work here for me at Gensis was the best exsp. ever. You can always walk through the doors and feel so much love and no matter how your day began it always ended up with so many smiles and happiness.
The best part of working here was to make it my best to always make my residents happy comfy and loved, to keep my family's pleased, and of – more... course my co-workers some of the best people in the world to work with.
Hardest part of my job was getting so attached to all the residents I worked with day to day, and having to see them depart for better or even sometimes worse things.
Last but not least the most enjoyable part of the job was succeeding in getting all my approvals on Medicaid, pushing, going over and beyond and being sucessful in each case that touches my hand. – less
Careline (Former Employee), MD – November 24, 2013
Please don't work for this company. Management are back stabbers and their all friends outside of work...they will lie on you because your not one if them and pretend as if your the one with the problem. Staff complain about the their mistreatment behind management back but are to afraid to report it!!
Depending on the case load a typical day can be both challenging and rewarding. For example, a stroke patient vs an ortho patient as treatment session minutes are allocated. I have learned to be clear concise and to the point during treatment sessions to attain the best functional outcomes. I have worked under a few managers at Essex Meadows all were – more... supportive and helpful. I have had the pleasure of working with some of the best seasoned therapists that shared their knowledge and expertise in their disciplines of PT,OT,and SLP. The most enjoyable part of the job is the positive functional outcome of patients who thought they would never return back to home in the community independently and or with home services. I am proud to be a part of the team that were responsible for getting them home safely. – less
Good if you're a new graduate or really need a job
LPN (Current Employee), Agawam, MA – November 23, 2013
Pros: great co-workers, lots of overtime
Cons: understaffed, unprofessional management
I started here as a new graduate nurse, which is great because they hire a lot of new grads and there are many facilities that require experience. My co-workers are great and always willing to help out if you have a problem or need advice about a patient. However, after months of management promising me that I would get a different schedule and shift, – more... it still has not happened. Many other nurses work twelve hour shifts (which is what I requested), but "staffing 12 hour shifts is so difficult" according to management. I used to pick up a lot of over time, sometimes 3-4 extra shifts a week, working many 16 hour shifts. Management has no appreciation for staff working overtime or helping out in a crisis. No bonuses are given for picking up time when they are desperate. Now I pick up maybe two to three shifts extra shifts every two weeks. Management does not care what shift you work, especially third shift, they will call you in the middle of the day while you are sleeping and then ask why you did not pick up the phone or why you did not call them back. Vacations are denied 80% of the time, due to not having enough staff. Staffing is low because of management, and many nurses and CNA's are quitting because of it. I cannot stress enough how unprofessional management is. When a current employee gives their notice, they make their life a living h*ll. I've seen it happen quite a few times. Many times they take patients that staff is not able to handle, or the patients have very complex medical problems that require more attention than we can give them. If we had less than 20 patients, it would be managable. On the long term care units, there is many times one nurse to 40 patients. Overall, I like my job because of my co-workers and because I enjoy helping people. I have great experience because of working here and have taken care of a wide variety of patients. However, I have never been more stressed out or more sleep deprived in my life. I am hoping to move on to a better company with much better management. – less
RN (Former Employee), Towson, MD – November 23, 2013
Pros: the patients
Seldom got a break due to pt workload. There was no place to take a break. Some employees ate lunch in their cars. There was a very small area in the locker room/bathroom area with only a few chairs and aides were usually occupying them to sleep. Expected to do wound care on all patients but never had needed supplies. If you asked for supplies, was – more... told we use too many gloves and other supplies. There was no teamwork. Manager acted like she was my best friend until I turned in my resignation. Then she made my job so unbearable, I walked out, making me ineligible for rehire, like I care! – less
Certified Nursing Assistant (Current Employee), Norristown, PA – November 21, 2013
Pros: free lunches and parties
Cons: short breaks
A typical day requires planning in order to assist your residents with their needs, and gathering the materials needed to do a great job. Collaborating with you co- worker in order to provide the best care for them. The manage team is great. The hardest part of the job is dealing with patients who's health is declining and there is nothing else you – more... can do except to make them as comfortable as possible. The most enjoyable part of the job is knowing that someone looks forward to your being there for them. They come to rely on you, and you become a important person in the lives of your residents. – less

Reimbursement Accountant (Former Employee), Morgantown, WV – November 12, 2013
Excel spreadsheets was used extensively as part of the job requirements. Worked under specific deadlines at certain times of year. Needed a working knowledge of subsidiary ledgers for accounts payable, accounts receivable, payroll, and patient accounts. Was required to reconcile some subsidiary reports back to the general ledger.
Learning was an ongoing – more... part of the job. As systems changed (or updated), they had to be learned.
The work environment was a backbiting one. It was hard to know who you could trust and who you couldn't trust. Management seemed to promote this type of environment. It created a lot of stress and uneasiness on the job.
What was most enjoyable was learning new systems and new job requirements. There is satisfaction in knowing that a job has been well done. – less
Speech Language Pathologist (Former Employee), Charles Town, WV – November 11, 2013
Pros: ghcc owned facilities are clean, co-workers great
Cons: management and corporate greed
Low pay rate. Ridiculous productivity requirements. They'll make you run around to multiple buildings. Some managers are vindictive and unprofessional. You never get paid for time off, nor are you ever approved for real vacation time. You will never be off at Christmas or Thanksgiving, because in reality this company no longer has true paid holidays – more... of any kind. They expect you to work sick and expect you to work with comatose patients. Patient refusals not allowed, you have to bill, bill, bill. They push the envelope making rehab staff commit Medicare fraud on a daily basis. They have computer systems in place to help you cover up the facts, although the software doesn't work most days. At full time employment they will not have enough speech therapy hours and so will send you home, but if there's an explosion in caseload, you're expected to work extra hours to cover it. SLPs are always alone and have little to no professional support. Greedy capitalists run this company, which is way too top heavy with managers and "specialists". BTW, the role of the clinical specialists is to "educate" rehab staff on how to keep increasing billable hours. Coming soon: they will make therapists clock in and out between patients, so you will have ZERO paid time to complete evals, prog notes, d/c's etc. I don't understand how that's legal - having someone in a building to do work, but not get paid for it unless they are next to a patient. It's common for therapists to go do paperwork while sitting bedside at the patients that are unconscious/unable to participate and then bill for it anyway.Some buildings are contracts, which at times they lose the contract so you can lose your job. Even the Genesis owned buildings there's no real job security. Recruiters will lie to you to get you to take a job, then once you are "in" you will see the baiting and switching. My salary rate is "modified comp", meaning NO paid time off of any kind, ever and no access to most benefits. Would be $5 less per hour if I took regular comp. DO NOT WORK FOR GENESIS REHAB, you will regret it! – less
