    Was extremely good early in my career. Every year since, the experience has declined.

    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.

    Work harder to retain your employees. Be more willing to listen to employees. Stop giving yourselves bonuses and painting the walls instead of giving hard-working employees a raise.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.
