    I worked at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Majority of staff in whole hospital nice. Some ICU and a lot of OR staff not so nice. Endoscopy staff is awesome!!! Really only pro to this hospital is putting on your résumé that you worked here because it is a trauma facility.....Whoopdie do!!!!

    Cons

    They say pay here is competitive.....WRONG!!! Mary Immaculate and Sentara Careplex pay 4-5 bucks more/hr. The call schedule is awful in the Endoscopy Dept and not everyone in dept takes call. Not fair!!! Why should FT staff get screwed while PT staff doesn't have to do it??

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with staff complaints, stand up for you staff with making sure everyone in department takes call, not just certain employees. FT employees shouldn't be overworked with taking call, PT employees should help with call as well.

    I worked at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Close knit, 'family' type of employer despite being a substantially size regional employer.

    Cons

    Business units are granted more latitude to act than they probably should have. Many projects that require the same resources during the same time windows. Almost no central project/program management.

    Advice to Management

    Adapt a more centralized project/program management process to target success rather than chaos and delays.
