    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.

    Overall great employer

    • Career Opportunities
    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.

    Current Employee - PC Specialist in Winchester, VA

    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.

    Pros

    Largest employer in the area.
    There are some very nice and hardworking people working at VH.

    Cons

    The Senior Management Team needs to be replaced. Very much an "old boys club" mentality, even though there are many females on the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect your employeess

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Winchester, VA

    Pros

    All work done eventually benefits the health of our customers. Benefits are adequate. I have a great commute. As one of the largest employers in the area, there are a number of benefits and discounts. As a large local hospital everyone I meet understands my job right away.

    Cons

    Promotions are given to less qualified staff with political ties.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Participate! Someone should be driving the bus.

    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!
