Run hard. . .Run fast. .Don't be pulled into big blue

RN Homecare Nurse (Current Employee)
Roanoke, VA

I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time for more than 3 years

ProsPay and benifits compensate with experience, licensing and education. Good oportunities for paid continuing education

ConsWork philosophy totally useless and unused in practical application at work.Work culture is generally cut throat. Management pushes too hard for productivity quotas, forcing licensed medical professionals to see way too many patients and denighing overtimepay to stay up to date with the required computer documentation burden.

Advice to Senior ManagementReconize that RNs are overloaded with patients during a usual 8 hour day. Allow for overtime for computer documentation or have RNs see fewer pts to allow for documentation time

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Stay far away from Carilion Home Health

Home Health Nurse (Former Employee)
Roanoke, VA

I worked at Carilion Clinic full-time for less than a year

ProsBenefits are OK but otherwise nothing

Consmanagement is cut throat, will not pay for overtime, encourages false documentation to increase reimbursement, overall a dishonest workplace, vertical violence from management to employees

Advice to Senior ManagementImplement fair work practices, pay for overtime to cover documentation time, stop encouraging falsification of assessments to increase reimbursement, stop insinuating that the revolving door of employees is faulty and accept that your management style is to blame for your inability to keep staff

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Compensation and technology well below industry average.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Christiansburg, VA

I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time for more than 5 years

ProsSmall town atmosphere and culture of caring in some departments.

ConsOther departments are silos and the hospitals are silos and treated poorly compared to the system hub in Roanoke, Virginia. There is not a culture of team work.

Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice to Roanoke- Get off your high horse, you are no better than the "community" hospitals that actually support your plans. Upgrade your technology and compensation plans to be in line with the 21st century.

This is the most supportive organization I've ever worked for.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThey are very supportive of continuing education

ConsIts difficult to get promoted in my area of expertise.

Advice to Senior ManagementIn the 11 years that I've been employed here, I earned 3 subject matter certifications (working on a 4th) and I think that a promotion is in order to recognize those accomplishments.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

A Clear Choice Among Industry Leaders

Database Reporting Analyst (Current Employee)
Roanoke, VA

I have been working at Carilion Clinic full-time for more than a year

Pros- Lots of Opportunity for growth and change in your career.
- Everyone takes a very intelligent approach to their jobs.
- Learning opportunities in every aspect of every job.
- Open ended market.

ConsI have none personally. It has been a positive experience.

Advice to Senior ManagementSometimes working out an issue is done by "waiting" it out. Toastmasters has a program called "Moments of Truth" where an outside view takes a look at your team to assess how well or poor their club is doing. It is the things we cannot see when we are in the middle of them that always need change.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
