    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great "teamwork" environment by far one of the best companies that I have worked for. They have great leaders to guide you and that are involved every step of the way. There is definitely room for growth within the company.

    Cons

    Not much of a downside for the exception of long hours most days but it pays off in the end.

    Advice to Management

    Take lots of notes and be available for your staff. What I've learned is being a great leader is to be available and involved with your staff.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Always looking for ways to improve and grow.

    Cons

    Constantly feel as if your best isn’t good enough. Not everyone is treated equally. Management takes credit for the good work and then it’s your fault when it goes wrong. Doesn’t seem like there’s enough time to do your work before you are moving on to something else.

    Advice to Management

    Not everyone needs to be micromanaged. Let people show you what they can do instead of holding them back.

  3. "Physical therapist"

    Pros

    Pay, water fountains work, bathrooms were clean

    Cons

    You will never get PTO approved unless you’re a PTA. This job is a PTAs dream, they never answer for anything because you have to. The corporate robots constantly hurl “work hard play hard be flexible” as their cute little slogan but they are extremely inflexible. You will get calls weekly from their robotic corporate directors about anything from your PTAs clock in time to a chart review by people that weren’t even there. The front staff is weak and full of drama at all times. Work hours from 9-6 gets old. You don’t have a set schedule just a screen with names and times which breeds laziness due to folks disappearing “to the bathroom” or playing dumb when a patient arrives so naturally all responsibility falls on the supervisor. Remember the part about this being a PTAs dream?

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time

    Pros

    Nova has flexible hours, great people in a relaxed and warm environment. Lots of opportunity to grow and make an impact with a dedicated management team.

    Cons

    With any growing organization there are growing pains. I see the management team working on improvements but it is taking time.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe a response tool or open forum for employee feedback as sometimes direct communication can be intimidating.

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I currently work for NOVA and have for over 5 years. The advancement opportunities are attainable for all team members. This company continues to work on the atmosphere that their employees work in to continue to make it an amazing place to work. They care about each employee and are never to corporate to communicate with them all. Leadership is friendly, approachable and open to new ideas.

    Cons

    As with any company, the struggle is always affordable healthcare. NOVA works hard to offer great health care but it does come at a cost. This is present in all industries.

    Advice to Management

    Continue the great work and leadership.

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time

    Pros

    I work in the DFW market and have the best Managers ever. Ryan and Rachel are always there to help and support us and we work together as a team to be the best we can.

    Cons

    Working here requires strong organizational skills. I work well in a structured, organized environment. Those who are not organized and able to multi-task may not be the right fit.

    I have been working at Nova Medical Centers (Texas) full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    no weekend, no call

    Cons

    80% of a radiographer's day will be spent doing alcohol breath testing and drug testing. 10% of your day cleaning toilets, mopping floors (being housekeeping personnel instead of being a radiographer) 10% will be actually performing YOUR JOB AS A RADIOGRAPHER! Ridiculous! You will not be informed of this fact during the interview that you will be expected to perform the duties of housekeeper and MA. Nova only began giving pay raised 09/2017. Most were only 20 cents. Radiographers this is a job with no possible advancement.

    Advice to Management

    Stop misleading potential employees regarding the job duties. High turn over due to non disclosure. Hire Housekeeping staff. Monitor your Supervisors, several are very unethical. Increase PTO accruals. Take the Lead in showing HONOR to your employees who only want to work hard to make the patients want to return to your facilities again.
