Worst place I've ever worjed
Housekeeper (Former Employee) –  Harrisonburg, VAMarch 27, 2017
Sentara RMH is the worst place I have ever worked at. I worked as a housekeeper and it's not as clean as they say it is. The managers and lead techs are a joke. I've told family and friends to go somewhere else because the hospital in general sucks! The majority of the RNs and PCTs could care less about the care of patients. It's just a horrible place since Sentara took it over.
Pros
The hours
Cons
Low pay. Management is lazy

Poor middle managment
Certified Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VAFebruary 4, 2017
This company needs to dedicate more time to training their middle management. The company culture is lacking in honesty and team work. There is a clearly defined line between workers and any chance of advancement and strong resistance to innovative thinkers.
Pros
Large company with many diffrent work enviornments in which one can learn.
Cons
Poor pay, over bearing managers, no team work and high turnover rate

Sentara Microbiology: Lab "culture" at its best
Medical Laboratory Technician (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAJanuary 26, 2017
I'm here to tell you that the microbiology department at SNGH Reference Lab is a fantastic place to work. The management is being changed, and there are a few new direct supervisors who have helped to thin out the workload, so it's a little less chaotic when it comes to administrative things. I will say that the work can be overwhelming, and often times, the entire staff feels like they are doing the job of five techs. It is stressful, it's hard, and it's not rewarding, but that's the nature of a career in laboratory medicine. Benefits are pretty stellar, but slightly expensive for it being a healthcare organization.
Pros
exceptional coworkers
Cons
pay is low compared to national average
