    I worked at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    As an experienced healthcare leader I have worked at other healthcare organizations. Riverside cares about its employees and patients and treats everyone with respect. Very friendly and listen to your opinions Pay is good.

    Cons

    Benefits are not competitive. PTO is not as much as other systems for leaders. Employees get more than managers because they get extra for good attendance. Other healthcare companies give managers more vacation because hits we work. The health insurance is very expensive. I think Riverside loses good leadership because if they are new to company they can go somewhere else and get better vacation plans.

    Advice to Management

    It is a great place to work but to keep good employees HR should look at what others are doing with benefits.

    Pros

    Riverside Regional : The staff and your coworkers are family. The floor nurses are impeccable when it comes to being on the front line.

    Cons

    Consistent with lack of communication and no regard with the CNAs and Nurses on certain Units. They expect us to come in early to prepare the floor yet complain when we clock in too early... then don't care when the doctor requires bed rest that falls over the time the whole unit shuts down at 6:30 since there's no night shift. Not to mention over booking the unit when we only have 8 rooms to utilize. It took 5 years for a particular unit to get a break room. Also you only qualify for health insurance if you work over 30 hours a week.

    Advice to Management

    Change the hours of PCA open to close or team PCA with Pre/Post. Lessen bed rest from M.D. for less invasive procedures especially when no sedation was used.

    I have been working at Riverside Health System (Virginia) part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is a great place to work if you have recently graduated school and you are looking for a stepping stone or place to get some baseline experience in your medical career.

    Cons

    Don't expect to be happy or to stay here long-term, most employees feel very overworked and underpaid, compared to other hospitals and medical facilities in the area. You will get very little help from your co-workers and find that you are often left to your own devices with little training. This leads to mistakes and errors that could make Riverside one place that you might want to leave off of your resume in the future

    Advice to Management

    Dig deeper and be more willing to be honest about supervisors, some of which have been there for way too long stuck the old way of doing things, negative reinforcements from supervisors, not handled properly, many employees feel they are humiliated and called out in front of their peers. This is rule number one for being a supervisor, you should always take the employee to a private area to have a negative conversation or to be corrected in any way. This happens on a daily basis in my department. Defamation of character should never be tolerated
