Pros

The company really does does have have a positive impact on Southwestern Virginia. There is significant health care value in the communities that it serves.

Cons

Roanoke as a city isn't quite sure if it want's to grow or remain a small town.
It also has it share of NIMBY types.

Advice to Management

Be more flexible.

    Pros

    I enjoy the people that I work with including the people who manage the department. The managers support your ideas and promote change. The facility itself is in great condition. There are also paramedics, CAs, and housekeeping as well which helps the nurses provide better care for their patient's.

    Cons

    The salary is low. Carilion offers very little money to their nurses. There is no benefit to staying for the long term. Often times nurses get their year or two of experience and then leave. This means the nurses that stay spend a lot of their time orienting new and very inexperienced nurses without being compensated.

    Advice to Management

    I think if Carilion looked at how much it spends on orienting new nurses every year and then considered how much they are willing to pay their seasoned nurses they would find it makes way more sense to spend more money trying to keep the nurses they already have. In addition, inexperienced nurses also have the potential to lead to very expensive lawsuits. Nurses is SW VA get paid lower than nurses in any other area of VA and in my opinion that is nothing to be proud of.
