    One of the best jobs I ever had!

    Registered Nurse (Former Employee)
    Charlottesville, VA

    ProsFlexibility with assignments,worked with competent staff, and I was usually sent to a variety of units to get excellent working experience on.

    ConsThe upper management would often issue impractical rules or change what was already working fairly well for the staff. Most of the nursing units were understaffed on the night shift.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the floor staff and don't skimp on staffing for the nursing units.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Satisfactory with some frustrations

    Specimen Management Technician (Former Employee)
    Charlottesville, VA

    ProsThe people were good and the managers were very professional.

    ConsIT services left much to be desired; I was unable to access the employee email or payroll systems without involving a manager and several calls to IT.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Prosgood cafeteria. nice town to live in.

    ConsAdministration doesn't care about staff, especially nurses.

    Advice to Senior Managementdon't be so cheap. overhaul nursing admin- all the nurses are quitting. we can't take care of patients without nurses. they are the heart of the hospital- and protect the patients from physicians who are not paying atttention

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Top-notch hospital but with typical problems with management

    Speech-Language Pathologist (Current Employee)
    Charlottesville, VA

    ProsGood benefits and salaries. Access to experts. Great continuing education opportunities.

    ConsManagement does little to address problems between employees ("bullies" and "gossips" negatively impact teamwork and atmosphere of respect). Tight work space. Complicated and personally offensive annual performance review process (anonymous co-workers rate your performance, even if not in same profession).

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease transparency in performance review process. Solicit feedback from employees regarding team morale and cohesiveness. Address issues with employees creating a toxic work environment .

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Okay, could be better

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Charlottesville, VA

    ProsCharlottesville and the surrounding area are beautiful. Some dedicated individuals within the health system. Sense of tradition and history in Mr. Jefferson's University. Health care delivery is very good.

    ConsPoorly run system that appears to be reactionary to current trends rather than anticipatory. Lack of creativity and vision at all levels of management hamper the institution. Cultural norms against changes make it hard for the institution to position itself for the coming changes in medicine. Big gap betweeen what management says it values and the types of leaders the institution promotes.

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou have your work cut out for you. The coming decade in medicine will bring some of the most pressing challenges the profession has ever seen. I hope you can persuade all stakeholders to see that change is good.

    it is good

    Research Associate (Current Employee)

    Prospro: it locates in a beautiful place where the living is easy; people respect each other and believe in work-life balance.

    Conscod: the salary was not very competitive, and it is some far from the big cities. people like to stay for a long time, so not easy to be promoted.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThis philosophy of thinking globally while acting regionally generates support for strategic education initiatives that benefit the worldwide community.
