Enjoyed being a part of the Sentara family
Marketing PR Coordinator, Physican Support (Former Employee), Materials Management Chesapeake VAAugust 11, 2015
Pros: Family atmosphere, lovely workplace, benefits
Cons: Growing so fast, if that is a con!
The office atmosphere was like a family. Working with people that have been all over Sentara and some working there 30+ years helped developed relationships that created great team work.
Management doors are almost always open, and if you needed, you could talk to them about any challenges that you are facing. Having children - they were understanding that life happens outside of work, and were understanding when you needed a little flexibility.

The benefits being a Sentara employee are amazing, second to none.

Unnecessarily Stressful
Administrative Assistant (Current Employee), Woodbridge, VAAugust 7, 2015
Registration's management needs to be fixed IMMEDIATELY. There is an extremely high turnover rate and staffing issues. Employees feel unappreciated and overworked with little to none recognition/compensation.

It was a pleasurable experience to work there
cna (Former Employee), variesAugust 4, 2015
Pros: scheduling
Cons: At first we were not offered benefits
I enjoyed most that i was able to make my own schedule to fit my life. I was not bound to a specific schedule. The hardest part of my job was when my patients passed away. I really enjoyed my coworkers most were very nice and friendly

A great place that supports education
Board Member of PACE Ethics Committee (Current Employee), Virginia Beach, VAJuly 22, 2015
Pros: recognize your skills and service, all for education
Cons: not enough employment resources
A typical day at work starts with a morning meeting of the Interdisciplinary Team. All healthcare professionals inclusive of the site manager discuss, implement and resolve all care plans for all attentive participants. I learn how each department is critical to ones health. The co-workers are all about teamwork to present an outstanding customer service. The hardest part of the job is death of a participant that you have utilized all resources to preserve their well-being. The most enjoyable part of the job is the result of great customer service.

Great Place to Work
Administrative Secretary (Current Employee), Norfolk, VAJuly 21, 2015
I enjoy working with Sentara, and the people I work with are wonderful. I may not work as a nurse, but what I do directly helps the nurses and doctors preform their day to day duties.

A typical work day for me, lets me help answer questions for patients and visitors, answer phones, manage multiple calendars, schedule meetings, draft agenda's for various meetings, take minutes, and process invoices. I fell the hardest part of my job is arranging meetings with multiple physicians. The only reason I say this is because they all have busy days seeing patients in the office or have busy days in the OR, and coordinating schedules so everyone can be in one place at one time, sometimes takes some time.

An Organization Maturing
Business Analyst - Identity Access Management (Current Employee), Virginia Beach, VAJune 22, 2015
Pros: Strong sense of "Team", free gym, training, project experience
Cons: Speed of healthcare (slow upward mobility), managing projects with daily workload, On-call support
My experience at Sentara Healthcare has been a rewarding experience that afforded me many computer-based skills as I transitioned from Law Enforcement. My typical day at work entails monitoring various mailboxes for customer requests/issues, utilizing a wide range of applications for user provisioning, and am responsible for large scale projects to support identity access management redesign.
Over the past 6 months, daily duties have been split between processing user requests and project work. All team members are also managing projects and we make every attempt to support one another with the daily workload.
The most difficult aspect of the job is combating complacency due to the repetitive nature of user provisioning; one must always pay attention to all details so that patient care is not affected.
The most enjoyable aspect of the job is the support of my teammates and the continued training in new areas of IT.
