    Current Employee - Informatics in Winchester, VA

    Pros

    Good people, very patient care oriented. They truly work together as a team to ensure the patient is always first.

    Cons

    HR and Leadership are very slow to make a decision and once the decisions are made are even slower in implementing them. Communication from Leadership down is not very good.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider implementing a better system and communication and be more open to employees and encourage more open communication.

    Pros

    Made lots of friends . A lot of team work.

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't care about the employee! Vacation is dictated to you. Micro-management at its best. No support or caring for employees. Sweat shop material. The more you do, the more that is expected of you. No appreciation!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue! INOVA is buying valley health and you will be out of a job!

    Pros

    Working for a hospital helps the community

    Cons

    Political back stabbing and no room for growth or promotion. As the largest employer in the area your either in or out on the street. Don't complain about your workload or middle management will find a way to replace you from the lines of people waiting to take your job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on growing your business, not shrinking your losses. Spend some time at the gym, you could stand to loose a few tons.

    Pros

    Great team to work with. Constant teamwork and comradeship.

    Cons

    Horrible middle-upper management. Zero management skills from middle management. Management too involved in personal affairs/matters. Management gets too upset when ideas didn't come from them, or the employee got all the praise without any mention to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay out your employees personal lives, promote their growth, especially if they started with someone on their own.

    Current Employee - Home Health  in  Winchester, VA
    Current Employee - Home Health in Winchester, VA

    Pros

    I have found no pros to this place. Only endless cons.

    Cons

    Too many managers and not enough employees to do the work needed. Upper management doesn't care about employees at all. Review system for raises is rigged so you get nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't expect people to perform any job function if they are not satisfied with their work environment and that takes caring about them, listening to them and actually implementing change needed. You can't write people up for overtime when you give them too much work to complete within an 8 hour day, nor write them up for not completing it so they won't get overtime.

    Current Employee - Pharmacy Tech in Winchester, VA

    Pros

    Get paid every 2 weeks.

    Cons

    Valley Heath has not given raises in a while, some employees even got a pay cut this year. No flexibility in schedule/work life. Management is not involved and spend money on items that add no value to the organization. Community has many poor things to say about the organization.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get out of your office and see whats going on. Spend money on your employees, invest in their future.

    Overall great employer

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee  in  Winchester, VA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Winchester, VA

    Pros

    Large local employer
    Opportunities to advance within the company

    Cons

    Large employer - sometimes overlooked and only considered a number.
    Annual salary increase is not truly based upon merit but rather what is budgeted.
    This employer is behind the times and needs to institute more work-life flexibility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers & Supervisors should be required to take management classes /training throughout the year. Many of them have become leaders of their department(s) because they have been in the field for years; however, years of experience in the field does not translate over into a great manager of people. Executive Management fails to try and correct an issue that they are fully aware of in order to keep the peace. Unacceptable.
