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

    Pros

    Call-center is easy. Once you get the epic system down and find your groove multitasking, you'll be set. When it's busy, you'll be answering about 130+ calls a day. On a slow day, you could be sitting there for 20 minutes with no calls. Very easy. Easy-going patients make it very fun. Great health benefits

    Cons

    This same position has two locations: call center or front desk at the actual primary care office. Same pay. Working the front desk will give you 2-3x the workload and none of the upgrade in pay. You'll be making as much as the people sitting in the call center. Also patients will range from angry to extremely pissed off.

    Advice to Management

    Have some sort of vertical movement plan for employees. I see employees in the same position for years and only move laterally with no pay increase. It's very disheartening.

    Pros

    It's a good experience. The people, the team, the commitment and heart is there. It uses a complex EHR which affords opportunities.
    It's nice to be associated with the brand. Immediate leaders care for their teams.

    Cons

    Work excessive hours.
    Staff not included in communication and planning.
    EVP does not understand healthcare IT and operations.
    She does not seem to care about people.

    Advice to Management

    Hire executives that have leadership experience and like people. Don't just hire for skill.

    Pros

    Public reputation still good
     Continues to be financially sound
    Lots of room to be better.
    The Board is very empowered.

    Cons

    Lack of respect for people with knowledge . New CIO has some knowledge about security and infrastructure, but her experience with care of patients, hospital operations, and the ability to create teams is severely lacking. There are many closed door meetings with a culture of secrecy that is toxic. People are always afraid to speak or ask questions, for fear their jobs are at stake. Many good employees are leaving and saying it is because of a hostile environment.

    Advice to Management

    Find a leader who knows how to lead. The first thing I would advise is to ask more questions and listen to the feedback of staff. The department needed to be changed, and change is good , but the way in which this CIO does business does not meet any standard that speaks to a safe environment or a great place to work. Until this changes we will remain in a downward spiral. Inova talks about accountability and great leadership... you need to evaluate the behavior of a leader who talks about accountability but does not hold herself accountable to the Just Culture and TeamSteps we are all learning about.
