    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Company leadership is aligned with culture. Company delivers on its promises. Many employees who leave Nova Medical Center have returned realizing that the grass is not always greener on the other side.

    Cons

    Do not take the success of the company for granted and ensure transparency exists both with good and bad news.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate, communicate, communicate. Don't allow false rumors take control of the message.

    Pros

    Corporate atmosphere is very relaxed. Clinic staff are given a lot of opportunities for promotion. Transfer to different locations when positions open.

    Cons

    Work/Life balance is sometimes hard but can manageable. Some people are only there for a paycheck instead of wanting to see Nova grow and prosper. Communication through out all departments need to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Work on communication and focus more on employee retention.

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've been with the company almost 3 years. It's been a great place to grow both personally and professionally. I've had the opportunity to work with PTs who have a variety of specializations and years of experience which has afforded me the chance to improve my leadership and clinical skills.

    Cons

    Communication is always a work in progress as the company and leadership changes but that is to be expected

    I worked at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) (More than a year)

    Pros

    I met a lot of good people while I worked here. All of the non-C-level employees are taken for granted and unappreciated at corporate, but many are really great people. The PT side of things are well-oiled compared to the company as a whole.

    Cons

    Things that were unavoidably noticeable in the year+ I was there: One executive is very demeaning towards most women, especially the younger women. Those in HR are not people that employees ever felt comfortable going to with workplace issues or problems. It's like a big boy club that looks down on everyone else. You never could really feel secure there, especially if you weren't a man. One of the executive women is HANDS DOWN the rudest woman I've ever encountered. She's like out of a movie, with an arrogant "do-you-know-who-I-am?" demeanor. Work-life balance doesn't exist for Industrial Directors. The company as a whole does not really believe in keeping up with modern times, which is unheard of for a medically-related company that operates heavily online with their own software. It took a major lawsuit loss to finally rebrand.

    Advice to Management

    Management is the problem, so my advice to management would be to clear house, but good luck getting rid of all of you.

    Pros

    Great environment to work in.
    Management is very inspiring and always willing to help with any issue that employees might have.
    The schedule of being at the office and out in the field is very structured but if there is a special case they are always willing to work with you.
    We are very in tuned with social action causes and willing to help our community around us.

    Cons

    There can be homework on a weekly basis.
    Sometimes things can be given to the representatives to be done with not enough time to do them and we have to stop what we are doing to get those things done.

    Advice to Management

    When asking us to do spreadsheets or a project, please give me more information in how you want us to fill out the spreadsheets and not have us guess at what you want.
    Also, when asking me a question about clients or networks please elaborate on the questions so we can answer them with a better knowledge.

    Pros

    Nova's Board allows for innovative thinking. If you have an idea that can improve processes and have the ability to execute the idea with proven results, a green light is given. Not many medical companies allow this type of management. This is what makes Nova successful in my opinion.

    Cons

    It is difficult to give cons to a company you have loved for over 13 years. However, all companies are not perfect. We stay so busy in our own departments day-to-day responsibilities we sometimes forget to keep the doors of communications open to other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Keep giving your Management staff with proven track records the green light to move forward with innovative ideas.
