      Poor and Unorganized Healthcare System

      Pros

      This place ends at good healthcare benefits and separate bank for PTO for holidays.

      Cons

      The organization does not have a clear vision. All aspects are extremely behind especially in technology of equipment. The administrative suite is not supportive (constant finger pointing and berating of lower management), not visible (do they even work?) and lacks general knowledge how to run a hospital (more than likely will need a second bailout). The administrative suite back stabs lower level management, has cliques like a reality tv show and are extremely dishonest. Lower level management endures psychological games by upper management. There is no opportunity for growth unless you are brown nosing and act like a servant to administration. There is monumental micromanaging from the administrative suite but zero guidance. Staff also have cliques and have lost all interest in patient care. They are only there to collect a pay check, no passion for their work and it shows through patient safety issues. Staff also refused to be engaged with leadership- they finger point and complain. Staff are destructive and drive new employees away then complain they are overworked. Extremely toxic work environment.

      Refreshing New Outlook

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      My unit has new management that creates a positive outlook. They have clear standards and support their team. They are present on the floor and care about their employee. Previous management was always behind closed doors and in their office.

      Cons

      Some of my coworker are very negative and rude. They don't want to be involved in anything but will always complain. They are part of the problem instead of being part of solution.

      Abusive, Backstabbing Culture that Starts at the Top

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Much better places to work

      Cons

      As others have said, inova is known for it’s bad culture and poor hiring practices – lots of wrong people in the wrong positions. Just look at some of their backgrounds and it don’t take long to see lack of qualifications esp on the management side. High turnover in areas reflects poor decision making. Insecure middle management and senior management who thinks that preaching warm and fuzzy is the same thing as actual ETHICS. Lots of self congratulating by senior management while some are only concerned with seeing their name in lights. It would be embarrassing if the public or board of directors were to actually find out what really goes on here. It’s frightening.

      Pros

      Gain a lot of knowledge and work with great employees

      Cons

      Supper busy place to work and sometimes not enough techs support to have a smooth day of work (due to call out). Additionally, it is very hard to take time off since so much employees to accommodate everyone.
