    I worked at Inova

    Pros

    The company really takes care of its employees. Help with education and lots of benefits.

    Cons

    Offices are open during snow storms. The hospitals are open so all offices must be open too. Hospital rules apply to offices far from the hospital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay close attention to what goes on in the office

    Pros

    Great environment to work and Benefits.

    Cons

    Medical Assistants are seen lower than the front desk staff. As a medical assistant for Inova I get paid less than the front desk staff. Our roles in the office setting, are the same as the LPN but we get paid less.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. Giving back to the community.

    Cons

    Administration and management is out of touch with their employees. Additionally, expansion does not match the skill sets of the organization. We are taking on businesses that we do not know how to manage (i.e. insurance). Also departments open and move without any rhyme or reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and find out what they would like to see.

    Pros

    Highly recognized in medicine and trauma care

    Cons

    In my case, toxic boss and department. Non-clinical area.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability by organization for corporate leadership poor behavior. Dysfunctional, toxic corporate departments with high turnover rates and numerous employee complaints should be evaluated and figured in to bottom line losses.
