    I have been working at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time

    Pros

    Progressive Health system lead by a Chief Nursing Officer who has the nurses of the system at the center of every decision. Feel supported as a nurse in my position with Riverside.

    Cons

    Riverside does an excellent job managing the many changes of healthcare

    I worked at Riverside Health System (Virginia) full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    It’s so sad to say but there are not any pros about this company. Each facility is different and there is a possibility to meet some awesome people but the health system overall needs help.

    Cons

    This company is not innovative AT ALL. Their competitors are leaving them in dust especially when it comes to technology, employee retention & appreciation. If you want to be overworked, underpaid and not have work-life balance, then this is the place for you.

    Advice to Management

    The “C-suite” really needs some diversity. There’s a lot of “snow” and men at the top and if you want to be successful and continue to grow, your senior leadership needs to represent society. Management, please start appreciating and valuing your employees. If you don’t you will continue to lose them. It’s sad that this organization has so much potential but the leaders are so stuck in their ways that they refuse to see it. Take your blinders off and look around you, then maybe change will begin to happen.

    Thank you very much for your insight. We are always open to feedback and please know that we value and celebrate diversity. There is always room for improvement however.

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

    Pros

    Great food at great prices (at my hospital anyways,) friendly environment( mostly,) chances for overtime are plenty as well.

    Cons

    Pay is low starting out possibly due to the type of business the hospital is in, but kind of makes up for it with the pay differentials. Nothing else comes to mind except their stocking system is very outdated.

    Pros

    Some pros to this company were flexible hours and a complementary gym membership. A great place to be a part time employee.

    Cons

    Some of the cons of being a guard at Riverside Heath group were not having a large variation in moving hours week to week with the schedule.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to on the path of running a great health network in South Eastern Virginia. Grateful for my time as an employee in the network.
