I worked at Virginia Hospital Center full-time (More than a year)

Pros

I really enjoyed the patient interaction. The staff at the hospital is friendly as well, overall a great work enviornment.

Cons

The location is in a heavily congested traffic area I lived about 20 miles from the hospital and I took me about an hour to get there.

    I have been working at Virginia Hospital Center full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Clean, friendly, safe, good benefits

    Cons

    Now that they are trying to achieve Magnet status, it seems they are trying to limit yearly raises to as little as possible for nurses, making it harder and harder for them to advance even though Magnet status is supposed to encourage not discourage. Turnover rate is increasing.

    Advice to Management

    Motivate your employees, don't squelch them with a 1-2% raise that does not even account for a cost of living adjustment

    I have been working at Virginia Hospital Center full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Small and highly maneuverable and that is the only reason they get certain awards and distinctions. Its not that they are better they are just a little bit quicker.

    Cons

    Talented people end up leaving and those remaining are lifers. The lifers do anything possible to keep their jobs. When new people come in, they figure this out and attach themselves to those lifers or they make a name for themselves and get out. This works out for everyone, people learn and enhance their marketability and the lifers get to stay.

    Advice to Management

    Mr. Cole, your leadership team can be brats at times and you probably know this already. You also know that they are spoon feeding you. Go out there and randomly talk to people who don't get the shine or the visibility or those you feel in the gut are just good people. Health care is getting more competitive you need to fix as many leaks and cracks as possible.
