    I have been working at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most of Riverside's management are great to work for.
    Lots of opportunities for internal growth.
    Encourage career growth.

    Cons

    Education benefits are not competitive to other large health systems in the area.
    Although Riverside has been fair to me in terms of salary, there is a stigma that underpays its employees (when comparing Riverside's rates to its competitors)
    The organization as a whole is slow to accept any change. It is getting better; however, it has a long way to go.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring more senior leadership and start hiring employees at the ground level that are required to carry out the organization's strategic plan.

    Benefits are competitive for the region, strong training and education opportunities, tuition reimbursement offered from day 1 of employment.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s a job. Some of the people really care about the patients.

    Cons

    Management does not care about the employees. Doesn’t listen to employee opinions. Human Resources at the hospital is not approachable. They are behind locked doors and don’t come out. No activities for the employees. The purpose of HR is to look for a reason to punish people. Work should have some element of fun and reward. There isn’t any except a paycheck.

    Advice to Management

    You will continue to lose employees if you don’t start creating a rewarding environment.
