I have been working at Centra Health

Pros

The people you get a chance to work with and friendly environment. It is easy to advance in your career once you get in the Centra family.

Cons

It can be a little frustrating feeling like you are being micromanaged at times. It is also disconcerting the amount of people who slide by just because they have been there for a while.

    I worked at Centra Health full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the people there are genuine and want to be there, it is just not a job. Most of the people who are caregivers like what they do. People in other areas are helpful, nice, speak to you and help people who have that lost look on their face.

    Cons

    Some managers have higher expectations. There is still some of that "Good Ole boy" mentality there. Some managers are awesome and have your back, but you have to show them you are worth your weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is no such thing as promotions except when annual evaluations occur. Management has become too top heavy again like it did many years ago. There are some people who have been given second chances in different positions, try giving a few more. It's not always about the money. Change is good.

    I worked at Centra Health full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible scheduling at times, some supportive management, ok benefits, fast-paced days that makes work time goes by faster (due to the nurse/patient ratio, you're ALWAYS drowning in your work), physicians are great to work alongside, centra attempts to become active in the community and outlying areas

    Cons

    mandatory overtime, removal of early commitment bonus for extra hours an employee would sign up for before schedule was made. Opportunities for advancement were very political, even if the right candidate was "clear as day." HR was very difficult to work for and would also not back up an employee when faced with a work dilemma. Be prepared to "do more with less." Seems as though more marketing was done to attract new nurses rather than satisfy current employees. Centra nurses are stretched very thin and expected to do all and act in all roles with a micro-managed smile on their face to give "excellent care, every time."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better compensation for all employees, especially nurses.
