    Pros

    Approachable leadership
    Great co-workers
    Patients know their health hx and medications.

    Cons

    Since it is a community hospital you don't get to see much variety.
    A lot of new grads.

    Advice to Management

    Work on retention. Work with staff nurses' schedules so that you don't lose all the seasoned nurses that make this place excellent. You need seasoned nurses to train the new ones. Also, if staff want to leave, see if there is a way to fix the problem.

    Pros

    Employees seem to have a lot of pride in the organization. There is a general sense of camaraderie and positivity.

    Cons

    You must use PTO to take off on holidays such as Christmas. They account for this by increasing PTO, but there are no guaranteed holidays. If you don't have enough leave, you work.

    "Head of Human Resources Corporate Office"

    I have been working at Inova full-time

    Pros

    I have been working at Inova for a long time and I can finally say we have a Head of HR at the corporate office that is a leader with compassion and understands what he is doing in a business sense. He truly cares about the people that work for him and is always willing to talk to you. I have never seen a leader with a open door policy like his--and he sticks by it. Since he has been here I have never seen him take the credit for anything but gives all the credit to his team. If we struggle at something he does take the blame for that though and does not worry about who did it but what can we do to fix it. He understands what makes the organization successful and that is his people. Yes, finally! I would work for him in the future.

    Cons

    It will take time to get the HR organization where he wants it to be but he is leading the way in getting it there. There are leaders and people who do not like what he is doing but that is normal.

    Advice to Management

    Remove the people that do not want to change and are still living the past. Inova is moving forward and so is our HR department. What I have seen shows me he has the HR department moving in the right direction.

    Pros

    The people are awesome. Great colleagues and team players. The CEO seems great as well. The medical record is up to date technology wise.

    Cons

    The leadership is a lot to be desired. They could go so much further if leadership did not change so much. It takes forever to get things done that should really take half the time.
