    I have been working at Inova full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits; opportunity to take CEUs within the organization; decent pay for clinical positions; some managers who understand that a happy, cohesive staff provides better care.

    Cons

    The totem pole has become entirely too top heavy, and is so far disconnected from the lower support that it doesn't realize the damage it's doing to nurse:patient ratios and patient care. The culture and values it claims to hold itself and staff to on its advertising material is nothing more than propaganda and hypocrisy at its finest.

    I worked at Inova (more than an year)

    Pros

    Close to home and employee discount for meals. HR is useless if you have compliant go directly to EEOC.

    Cons

    Worst hospital I've ever worked for. There was favoritism, hiring of unskilled friends. Lacked knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some type of consultant come in and gage how employees feel and actually listen. Investigate Complaints throughly.

    Pros

    Inova has diversified culture. They give benefits like health and dental insurance.

    Cons

    Management does not value the employees contribution to the company. They only care about their big paycheck but not the employees welfare. They contracted a lot of departments so they won;t have to pay for benefits to those employees who has been with the company for a long time. They also laid off a lot of people and they promised that they will help them get a job but they lied.

    Pros

    -Pride of working for well-known organization
    -Friendly co-workers
    -Pleasant work environment

    Cons

    -Rapid growth in short period of time without the infrastructure to support it
    -Little to no advancement opportunities
    -Leadership focus is the "bottom line," not employee satisfaction

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train managers to be leaders, not dictators. Satisfied employees = better patient outcomes and reimbursement.

    Current Employee - Cardiac Tech in Fairfax, VA
    Current Employee - Cardiac Tech in Fairfax, VA

    I have been working at Inova part-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    "Powers that be" does best to, understandably, balance budget for expense vs. pay for workers (a challenge for a non profit)

    Staff can be friendly (unless busy and stressed - some)

    Cons

    Director is always nice and cooperative, Supervisor and other staff could do better (professionalism and fairness would be nice - although it is improving a little bit)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To keep budget flowing, and staff happy and fair, a discussion with staff and hear experiences of individuals would be nice. There are some nice, hard working workers in this sector of IFH, yet, they are taken advantage of by other staff (work politics)

    Pros

    The non management staff are good people

    Cons

    Management no communication very fake and two faced

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with people, Respect the employee
    Working in the same job for over 10 years without any problems until new manager decides to over hire,
    One week you can be walking on water the best employee ever then the next week she hits menopause or is PMS and HR is in the office giving you warnings management is so two faced and focused on making themselves look good the employee gets the short end of the stick, Morale is so low in every department yet all they focus on is how we can talk bad about other groups and colleagues, Stop the surveys and wasting millions on things that do not make a difference and focus on the staff the ones who do all the work and not upper management

    I worked at Inova full-time (less than an 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.
