    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

    Inova is growing and expanding to include ambulatory and outpatient areas. It is definitely a world class organization. Lots of room to grow within the company, big a promoting from within.

    Cons

    Your promotions are based on years of service. Yes you can technically move or transfer into another job within six months but it pays better if you complete a full year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Inova full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Inova is a premier health system in Northern Virginia and has multiple medical facilities in the area. Easy access for most facilities, great pay, growth potential and education reimbursement

    Cons

    The cons are what you make them to be, there is always a positive aspect for working in the system.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some management need to take a better look at procedures used for their employees and encourage growth and movement within in the system.

    I worked at Inova

    Pros

    My skills, knowledge, and expertise in my field of study were appreciated by most of my coworkers, management and other departments.

    Cons

    The financial compensation was minimal when considering the cost of living in the area and that was my only serious complaint.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There were a few (not many) employees (including managers/directors) who were minimalist. These individuals create more work and stress on those employees who focus on providing excellent patient care. Place the employees who only do the minimum in positions where minimum is acceptable/expected and replace them with individuals who will appreciate the responsibility and work as a team with all other departments.

    Lots of opportunity for those who bring new ideas to the table and don't resist change

    I have been working at Inova

    Pros

    Healthcare is a changing field. If you are a person who embraces change and has ideas on how to improve, you will quickly get noticed and be given opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    The company pays at the mid-level range. It's not unlikely that you'll encounter people who resist change and become an obstacle.
