    Working at the Healthplex

    Outpatient Registrar (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

    ProsSome of the best reasons to work in my particular dept.which is the patient registration at the Healthplex, is the ability to have a flexible schedule. They work around your school schedule like no place I've ever been to. Another good reason is the tuition reimbursement of $ 3000 yearly for full time employees. There's also discounts for small fee that gets taken off your paycheck for lawyer's fees, medical pet care, financial advise, Inova classes, etc.

    ConsAt the place where I work( I am sure it varies) it's hard to advance. They also do not give you any feedbacks on your work. Health insurance is pretty expensive for a family of 3 an insurance that pays at 10% coinsurance and no yearly deductible comes up to about $ 500 a month.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHave no advice for them.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
