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

    Pros

    Good learning environment for new RN grads. Newer hospital buildings are pleasant to work at.
    Diverse work force and patient population

    Cons

    Little appreciarion to staff RNs, horrible PTO policy (days taken out if shifts being cancelled or must give up pay).

    Advice to Management

    INVEST in your staff RNs! Show appreciation with Good benefits rather than giveaway fancy pins/pens/ towels. Also, STOP cateting to abusive patients in the name of patient satisfaction.

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

    Pros

    It used to be good working here, but the values got out of wack -- the culture is changing and becoming more dysfunctional.

    Cons

    The new priority at Inova for about 4 years now is financial-- workplace efficiency, squeeze the staff, send them home quickly if productivity is at risk, cut the quality of supplies, replace long-serving staff with cheaper help, replace nurses with techs as much as possible, etc.. etc.. There is tremendous pressure to do more with less. The consequences of these policies of money over people: Staff quit, replaced with no one or with techs, or when things get desperate, they are replaced with travelers. So the pursuit of savings ends up being costly. The revolving door continues and the staff is stressed and unhappy. Until people are valued before $'s, the problems will remain. I trace this philosophy to Mark Stauder COO. He needs to go!

    Advice to Management

    Value people over $'s. Be the top-paying hospital system in the region instead of the lowest. Be determined to hear your staff and meet their needs on scheduling issues, quality of work environment, manager concerns, etc... Be the best by caring for your staff. They will reward you with the best system, best care, most satisfied staff, least turnover, etc!

    Pros

    Direct Manager and Co-Workers were great people and I enjoyed working with them very much. We were close like a family. The new CIO is undesirable, but the directors beneath her seem to be good people and are trying. The best thing about Inova is the people you work with in the trenches, not the corporate leadership as they are out of touch and focused on their own agenda.

    Cons

    New IT CIO is undesirable with how people were treated and fired without reason. Smart, hard working and good people were let go in masses for unknown reasons while the opposite were kept. Some of the worst people I have ever worked with in my life are still there, while some of the better are not. The corporate aspects of the company is completely out of touch with those in the trenches.
