    Pros

    Sentara has a fresh and forward thinking philosophy that runs through everything we do. My co-workers are enthusiastic and leadership has an aggressive and well thought out plan for each step taken. It's exciting to see changes happen rapidly and patient care improve as everyone her cares.

    Cons

    Sentara is a little far from my home, but the daily drive is worth it.

    I have been working at Sentara Healthcare

    Pros

    It is Healthcare - stable industry for the near future, great work/life balance, good leadership, competitive salaries, one of the few places that offers a pension plan, discounts at Sentara facilities,overall company approach to patient safety, reputed name in the community, community/charity work, great place for someone near the twilight of their careers to retire.

    Cons

    Mid-level management politics/empire building, poor bonus payouts in recent years, not enough employee recognition, social salary increments - no pay by performance, meager salary increment - hardly keeps with inflation, poor employee review/performance system - only yearly reviews, 6 months of waiting for budget approvals followed by 6 months of hurry up get it done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Mid-level management should manage down instead of managing up. Stop the internal bickering/politics/empire building. If you want to keep talent around - PAY THEM. Stop taking advantage of the poor economy to hire senior people to junior positions - they will not stick around. Improve the performance review system - do quarterly reviews. Recognize your employees by instituting an Employee reward system that is uniform, consistent and does not involve random person selecting another random person for recognition.
