    Pros

    The staff here are great! I've met some amazing people & made lifelong friendships. Supervisors/Team Leads are great as well. Really dedicated, supportive & non judgmental. They seem to really trust their employees & value their work. Flexible scheduling is a huge plus. Field staff make their own daily schedule. Office staff have normal office hrs. Pay is decent, not as much as a hospital but better than your average non profit. HCMC is in process of acquiring us, good for some (not for others).

    Cons

    Work load is big. Not great work life balance, especially for the supervisors. They pull long hours frequently. Benefits are horrible. You'll be paying in just to cover yourself, adding dependents is extremely costly. Seems to be some secrecy & top down decision making from higher ups, with limited explanations at times. Seems that Team leads get stuck in the middle of supporting their staff & dealing with higher ups. Definitely a nursing agency, therefore high value is placed on nurses, can feel like others don't matter as much. HCMC is in process of acquiring us, good for some, not for others. High turnover, probably because of lower pay than hospitals/clinics & high work loads.

    Advice to Management

    Remember what it's like to be working in the field. It's hard to do amazing work with high caseloads & constant turnover.

    I worked at MVNA part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I got to select my hours of work, met some great RNs, had my share of working with good clients - young and old.

    Cons

    Working odd hours, working short hours, not being able to pick the sites that you would be available to work at (they selected the sites for you based on your criteria). Also, the person who scheduled me for an interview was not a good communicator. She called me and left a message. I called back 3 minutes later and she already forgot who I was. She also scheduled my interview in the middle of an inconvenience to the person who actually interviewed me (that person seemed flustered upon arrival). It did not look well for the company. I cannot speak for the company overall because the seasonal work was fine. It wasn't amazing but it was good PT work to pick up hours and make extra money.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to allowing us to pick our flu-shot sites. I had to email the scheduler back and forth to trade sites because one location was closer to my part-time job than the other. She had told me the site o wanted was already taken and I find out later in the week that it was never covered - quite the hassle.

    Pros

    Employees truly care and work together to help the clients. Everyone works very hard to achieve specific goals to deliver excellent nursing service to our clients.

    Cons

    Cramped and noisy area to work which just adds to the stress of the job. Everyone is in one big room so it gets quite noisy. There isn't enough desk space to work.

    Advice to Management

    Get out of your offices, see what we do and get involved with the employees. You are so far from reality.

    Pros

    The pay is good. The new buidling is very nice. The lunch hour is generous. In the city.

    Cons

    The work area was intolerable. It was very small, not enough room to do your work. Management is not involved in this area. They expect you to learn a very complex system quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved in the intake area. Watch supervisors time and authority.

    Pros

    wonderful place to work if you are an RN who doesn't need benifits. MVNA is a wonderful group of friendly people who work together to get a job done.

    Cons

    MVNA is having difficulty staying afloat financially. They are hiring RN's on a part time basis so as not to provide benifits. They are trying to eliminate all LPN positions.

    Advice to Management

    LPN's are the people who do the grunt work. they are the backbone of the company. The RN's have too much paperwork to give the client's the attention they need.
