Poor work environment
Staff RN (Former Employee), Newport NewsOctober 6, 2014
Pros: most staff are team players
Cons: poor staffing; mandatory overtime and call
A typical day at work on any one of the Women's units would include too many patients, not enough staff and lack of relief.

If you like mandatory overtime and mandatory call- then this is the place for you.

Riverside Health System was an awesome employer to have worked with.
Medical Transcriptionist/Editor (Former Employee), Newport News, VASeptember 6, 2014
Pros: a lot of benefits to include being recognized for a job well done, bonuses and, yes, free meals and ability to work from home.
Cons: a difficult report requiring extra time to transcribe, dictators misnaming a type of report requiring editing the whole report.
The Management and Human Resources Departments always held their employees in their best interests. A typical day at work would be greeting co-workers, then getting down to the nitty-gritty of the day. Great emphasis was placed on teamwork and management was always easy to approach. One of the hardest part of my job was understanding foreign accent dictators which took a lot of patience and a lot of correspondence but would get easier with time. The most enjoyable part of the job was working with excellent co-workers who were willing to help at any time. Every employee that I had contact with, either at Riverside Walter Reed Hospital, Internal Medicine of Gloucester and Riverside Regional Medical Center were all a pleasure to work with.

lab (Current Employee), WilliamsburgAugust 31, 2014
Pros: there for the patient
Cons: low pay benefits
I have been employed by this organization for approx 13 years. I have worked for a competitor for approx 3 weeks and nothing compares. I love working for RHS. True every organization has its faults. Pay is low compared to competitors and health insurance isnt all that great but after working in a very stressful environment in a competitors lab I came back to my home and family which was Riverside.

Patient Accounting- Customer Service (Current Employee), Newport News, VAAugust 21, 2014
Pros: full time
Cons: short breaks
A typical day at work involves constant communications with patients regarding a bill or eob they received and would like an understanding of. I learned that patience is a learned behavior. Management is amazing! They are always there to assist you and make things as easy as possible for you. My coworkers are fun loving and knowledgeable of their job. The hardest part of the job is when sometimes some patients don't fully understand the type of insurance they have and the contract that they are in. The most enjoyable part of the job is that I have one. Just kidding. It would be the fact that I can help people and/or someone everyday.

Culture is different from facility to facility, but health system human resources tries to train managers to be fair
Manager (Former Employee), Newport News, VAJuly 3, 2014
Pros: benefits
Cons: lack of trust amongst managment
Management at each facility operates differently. Found the mgmt. team at specific facilities to show favorites. It was difficult for some employees to work in these conditions and moral was very low. Employee surveys were pushed to gather feedback but employees were often afraid to share in fear of retaliation from their direct report at smaller facilities. Moral will remain low until this issue is addressed directly.

It was worse than being back in highschool.
staff (Former Employee), Riverside Behavioral HealthJanuary 31, 2014
Pros: some very great people to work with
Cons: the great coworkers dont stay around long
Each location is different, so I can only comment on the behavioral health center when I say that I have never encountered such under-handed, unprofessional, and narcissistic displays of political behavior - and I'm from the northeast!
Despite the mandate to voice concerns and to suggest improvements, management lables vocal employees as "trouble makers" or "complainers" and then launches smear campaigns based on exaggeration, rumors, and poor communication to build grounds to terminate the employee.
If you choose to work there keep your head down, get EVERYTHING in writing, and keep records of ALL communication with management.

Good Experience
Office Assistant (Current Employee), Newport News, VAJanuary 18, 2014
A typical day on the job involves a lot of compassion and patience. The most enjoyable part of my day is being able to help someone. Not all interactions are favorable but when you get just one that expresses appreciation it makes it all worth it. To know that I had a hand it helping a patient get what they need is a reward in itself.
