    Pros

    Great organization as a structure. It's written values mission and goals are inspiring. There is an opportunity for greatness but may not be reached.

    Cons

    Poor leadership....claim they want to be the best in the world, but this doesn't apply to behavioral health. Need to review how they invest in employees has one of the highest employee turnover rate and has few women and minorities in Senior Leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to your core values.... Be... Know.... Do

    Pros

    Large company, well known in the area

    Cons

    Managers are not held accountable for high turnover in their dept. Human Resources does not enforce companies policies as the should(some do not even know what policies exist and how to find them!), but allow managers that the support to do as they see fit. Executive level staff does nothing about formal grievances that are placed about unfair treatment or wrong behavior of managers. No full investigations are ever done when these compliments are filed. They refuse to acknowledge that there is a problem with bad management in this organization. Instead, the employee suffers and either resigns or manager decides to devise ways to terminate the employee. Bad managers continue to exist and the cycle continues with the next victim.

    Advice to Management

    Stop allowing managers to make decisions on disciplinary actions on their own. FULLY investigates all grievances voiced via your grievance process. Stop treating employees like a number or as if they are just bodies easy to be disposed of and replaced. Train your current HR staff and hire more competently in these departments. Provide management training for those who supervise staff and make it a mandatory requirement for ANYONE who fills this role, regardless of their level within the company. Focus in one your high turnover departments and DO something about it.

    Pros

    I enjoyed the holiday potlucks/parties medical benefits good place to start

    Cons

    I had a terrible experience with INOVA HealthSource. I thought very highly of them before working here. Although my record showed i was promoted twice in a year and i was a hard worker. I was talked down took, belittled, and abused by my manager. Only popular employees allowed flexibility. Do not report to Human Resources on gatehouse because managers and human resources work together. After going all the way to the top to the CEO, nothing was done about my abusive manager. There is no respect for anyone here other than nurses/ and upper management. You are not valued at this organization. The morale here is horrible. I developed pneumonia from being over worked and have chronic anxiety now. The CEO did nothing to address my issue after i voluntarily left. I applied to another department and was shunned for complaining. I find it ironic that this is a Healthcare facility and the environment and workplace treatment is very toxic to your health. Very low pay for positions. Popular employees who kiss up get promoted not the ones who do their job and work hard Not flexible No pay increases or merit MANAGERS HOLD ALL THE POWER...run!!!

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more accountability/monitoring of managers. Seems like managers can make up their own rules. There needs to be training for managers and their behaviors. This organization has a high turnover and has lost many great employees. Departments vary. But the theme is similar.

    Pros

    The people I work with keep me here.

    Cons

    uncaring, inconsistent management. The upper echelon are merely mouthpieces and only interested in turning a profit. If you are a nurse and enjoy doing the work of two people at the expense of your license, this is the place to work!

    Advice to Management

    You might want to take care of your nurses or this place is going to be a ghost town

    Pros

    Highly recognized in medicine and trauma care

    Cons

    In my case, toxic boss and department. Non-clinical area.

    Advice to Management

    Accountability by organization for corporate leadership poor behavior. Dysfunctional, toxic corporate departments with high turnover rates and numerous employee complaints should be evaluated and figured in to bottom line losses.

    Pros

    Close to home and employee discount for meals. HR is useless if you have compliant go directly to EEOC.

    Cons

    Worst hospital I've ever worked for. There was favoritism, hiring of unskilled friends. Lacked knowledge.

    Advice to Management

    Have some type of consultant come in and gage how employees feel and actually listen. Investigate Complaints throughly.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with people, Respect the employee Working in the same job for over 10 years without any problems until new manager decides to over hire, One week you can be walking on water the best employee ever then the next week she hits menopause or is PMS and HR is in the office giving you warnings management is so two faced and focused on making themselves look good the employee gets the short end of the stick, Morale is so low in every department yet all they focus on is how we can talk bad about other groups and colleagues, Stop the surveys and wasting millions on things that do not make a difference and focus on the staff the ones who do all the work and not upper management
