    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at University of Virginia Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I love the dream our UVA president has for this massive institution. I want to see everyone succeed and it's clear that the people hired on the inside want to see the same thing. :)

    Cons

    The pay is very specified and mediocre. But it has gotten better since Jim Ryan announced UVA's new minimum wage of $15/hr.

    Pros

    Everyone is empathetic and cooperative Supervisors are very easy to work with

    I worked at University of Virginia Health System part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The job was flexible. The people in the managements were generally nice and supportive.

    Cons

    Some assignments to units we were sent to were questionable. There were times when I rotated 3 different units in a 12 hour shift.

    Former Employee - Project Manager in Charlottesville, VA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at University of Virginia Health System full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    8 weeks of paid maternity leave + the use of short term disability if you quality. Slow paced work environment, but every department is different. Health benefits are good and don't cost you a lot out of pocket.

    Cons

    Blatant pushing of liberal ideas at every corner, from watch parties of the impeachment hearings to management saying all conservatives are unintelligent. You are required to have MMR, tDAP and the flu shot and they refuse to give religious exemptions as the state legally requires. You will be fired if you do not comply. Pay is low and HR will low ball you - Always counter their first offer.

    I worked at University of Virginia Health System full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked in the medical ICU for many years. Management there was wonderful.

    Cons

    Problem with the upper levels of management within the hospital system is that they know nothing about patient care. They seem to not be as caring towards staff either.
