    I have been working at Inova full-time

    Pros

    great benefits

    excellent academy to teach you the basics

    very friendly/caring (depending on your location)

    perfect start for pre-med students to get some *real* experience (IVs, blood draws, EKGs, etc.)

    Cons

    upwards to 15 patients per tech leads to very early burn out!

    hiring process was haphazard

    low pay considering the insane amount of work involved

    not much room for advancement

    Advice to Management

    please hire more techs...getting stuck with a total care isolation patient can literally have you stuck in a room for 45mins and during that time other tasks pile up!

    I have been working at Inova full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Knox Singletons and the initial BOD vision is being realized in providing quality, broad scoped healthcare to the areas citizens; Mark Stauder, Preseident and COO is easy to talk with and appreciates and expects feedback; Richard Magenheimer CFO is brilliant; Susan Carrol with Alexandia and MT. Vernon is visionary; H Patrick Walters is a true gem of Inova leadership. Excitement surrounding the future of healthcare with the investment in the new campus and continued expansion and rebuilding of current facilities. In any healthcare organization, there is work because of the changing landscape primarily triggered by regulation to ensure safety. No business has unlimited resources and this balance must always be managed. People I get to work with day to day have already demonstrated their commitment to Inova. Physicians are absolutely brilliant and many bring a bed side manner with clinical skills and research knowledge. A great mix.

    Cons

    There are no cons. This is an exciting time to be at Inova.

    Advice to Management

    Continue leadership rounding, transparency and continue to place quality of care and employee engagement at the top of the organizational requirements. The Inova Operating System utilizing the scientific process of LEAN is proving to be of sgnificant benefit.

    I have been working at Inova full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are supportive. Good educational reimbursement. Not much else to say here, trying to get to the twenty word minimum.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. No culture of trust. Health benefits are embarrassingly sub par considering this is the largest healthcare system in NoVa.
