    I worked at Inova full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    By far the best hospital I have worked in throughout my 15 years of practicing. Great rehab staff; adequate autonomy in this position; large facility with a lot of different types of patients to work with.

    Cons

    More education necessary for medical and nursing staff re: speech pathology services.

    Advice to Management

    Support in regards to diagnoses, recommendations and utilization of the expertise provided by Speech pathology should be supported exponentially more by unit staff. This will only happen if it is encouraged from the top down.

    I worked at Inova as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people there are friendly and treat contractors well. They provide reasonable training.

    Cons

    The environment is unstable and there is a lot of turnover. Their IT department is slow to respond. I waited months to gain access to a program that I needed to do my job. Management wasn't very supportive in making sure that the IT department gave me the support I needed. In the end, the blame was shifted to me.

    Advice to Management

    Be proactive in making sure that everyone has the tools they need to do a good job. Work on providing a stable atmosphere for the administrative team; they also play an important role at the hospital. It's not all just about the sciences.

    I worked at Inova full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    pay is decent with vacation and time off

    Cons

    It was a discouraging and negative unit that I worked on. My experience working on the Oncology unit of Fairfax Medical Campus turned out negative and discouraging. The managers and workers on the unit were unsupportive, negatively judgmental, carried on non work related conversations in the overnight shifts, complained non-stop which aroused additional unneeded stress and pressure, and the managers did not provide a fair chance for colleague's concerns to be heard or implement changes. At one point, my gut feeling told me this is enough. I continued to feel pushed down working here. I will never recommend working on this unit to clinical technicians. Please try to work in a more positive unit of Inova, as Inova overall, is highly reputable and positive place to work and grow.

    Advice to Management

    please be more fair

    Mandatory overtime expected, limits on when you can use PTO, some of the newer staff does not get proper training and results in unnecessary errors.

    Pros

    A lot of OT available, able to see some pretty cool things depending on which department you work in

    Cons

    Managers sit in office doing NOTHING the entire shift. No employee morale, severely understaffed. High employee turnover, you have to wait a year to transfer to a functional department

    Advice to Management

    Replace whole management team in ED & start from fresh. You will continue to have multiple hr complaints, compliance issues & high employee turnover rate.
