    I worked at University of Virginia Health System full-time

    Pros

    Good people committed to doing a good job.
    It has decent benefits.
    Charlottesville is a nice (albeit expensive) place to live.

    Cons

    No upward movement. You have to wait for someone to quit or retire and that doesn't happen too often and no on gets fired. Consequently, when an incompetent person is advanced to a position of authority (simply because they have worked there long enough) they will be in that job for years until they retire.

    Pros

    Coworkers in the NICU at UVa are like family. Friendly, supportive, and positive.

    Parking is a hassle for day shift work, but not worse than you'll find in any academic medical center.

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

    Pros

    Good medical insurance with accommodations for quick appointments if your provider is within UVA Health system.
    Benefits/discounts with local shops, restaurants, etc.
    Responsive HR.
    Friendly staff in outpatient settings (where I worked).
    Flexible PTO.

    Cons

    Many changes/regulations from higher up supposedly for improvement in patient care but often complicate and impede patient care.
    Heavy workload as patients often come in from all around Virginia and neighboring states.

    Advice to Management

    Recommend management seek increased input from clinical providers regarding changes that will affect their workflow. Changes in EMRs and scheduling systems were meant to improve workflow but often were frustrating and ineffective.
