    Pros

    We work well as a team, and our direct manager is good about trusting our judgement and including us in working through solutions to workplace procedures.

    Cons

    IT would be nice to have more employee appreciation events, such as a picnic, or a Christmas party. So many events are geared towards the students and donors, and not so much towards the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees, especially ones that have been here for a while. Not every procedure should be reinventing the wheel!

    Pros

    Great place to work and great work environment. They continue to improve and grow the campus and programs. I think there is a lot of potential at EVMS over the year to come.

    Cons

    Outside of medically-based positions, fewer opportunities for advancement. Due to pay scales, no raises outside of promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Work to incorporate more students onto boards and within academics to improve the functionality of programs and the school for students.

    Pros

    My particular department is supportive up and down the chain from from desk staff to doctors. The general feeling in my department is that the support and understanding of the job do not travel any higher. It is a nice area to live in. For full time employees, the copay is waived for office visits within the EVMS network. Due to the affilitation with the medical school, medical expertise is very good for patients.

    Cons

    Pay is lower than other organizations for the same job in the region. A feeling of disconnect between upper management and medical sites. Perceived lack of interest by upper management. No benefits offered for taking classes/continuing education within the medical school for full time employees. Some of the HR policies are antiquated (examples: must work 40 hours a week to be full time, anything less is part time without benefits. Many organizations consider full time to be 32 or 36 hours. Accrued vacation time is not paid out when employee leaves on good terms).

    Advice to Management

    There is a disconnect between the medical school and the clinical sites. It's as if they are two entirely different companies who don't mix with each other. The organization is moving towards changing positions to part time temporary without benefits in lieu of full time positions. I think that erodes the dedication of employees and results in a less cohesive experience for the patient.
