    Pros

    Only thing that can be said is it is close to home, because they have our valley tied up there is no where else to work; a monopoly

    Cons

    Benefits terrible, raises poor at 2or 3% if your good, conditions horrible, management looks our for their selves, no compassion for employees, work us till we drop then write us up when we do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cost of living raise, more staff, benefits we can afford or at least as good as senior management gets...how about what Merrill gets, have him give up some of his money and benefits too through at the people that are in the trenches

    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.
