    Pros

    The University of Virginia Health Systems provides a competitive place to work and encourages career growth within the departement. They offer a great benefit package.

    Cons

    The University of Virginia Health Systems main drawback is parking. Free parking is offered, but is a 15 minute bus ride from the hospital.

    Advice to Management

    Employees are very fairly treated, and all decisions are based on opinions of all staff members, not just upper management.

    Extremely high ceiling for advancement, excellent pay and benefits.

    Improved communications between hospital, school of medicine, and university are essential.
