    I worked at Inova full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits, Good Company organization, Great Atmosphere

    Cons

    Compensation is not the best in terms of salary and room for growth is based on department, or managers. Recruiter only could offer me based on what others were making that had been there for years and it was sub-par in expectation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work on salary ranges for positions. But otherwise no real complaints.
