    Pros

    It is a great company to work for. The staff is understanding and compassionate.

    Cons

    You must be able to receive or ask for time off ahead of time. It is not enough staff to cover emergencies.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more. Allow for problems.

    I worked at UVA Health Services Foundation part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people were good and the managers were very professional.

    Cons

    IT 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.

    Pros

    good cafeteria. nice town to live in.

    Cons

    Administration doesn't care about staff, especially nurses.

    Advice to Management

    don'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

    I worked at UVA Health Services Foundation full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Listen to the floor staff and don't skimp on staffing for the nursing units.

    I have been working at UVA Health Services Foundation full-time

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Charlottesville 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.

    Cons

    Poorly 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 Management

    You 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.
