Top 100? No way.
Nurse (Former Employee), Arlington, VAJuly 2, 2015
Not sure how this is a top 100 facility. Management is constantly overturning, and because the new management want their people, people are constantly turning over as well. There is a lack of stability here. I know multiple department heads with litigation pending against them for unfair employment practices. Whistle blowers are quickly fired. Their magnet status is a farse. Nothing gets done around there.

Challenging Work Experience
Health Information Management Technician (Former Employee), Arlington, VAJune 30, 2015
Working at Virginia Hospital has taught me time management because of the heavy work flow and challenging tasks. It has provided me with lasting relationships with co-workers because they were able to help me with my professional career, which I would always treasure.

Medical Receptionist - Radiology (Current Employee), Arlington, VAJune 16, 2015
I havent been here a year yet, but it can be a very stressful environment to work at. Management is more customer focused, and I feel they do not have realistic expectations with their employees

They treated me great
Environmental Service Aide (Former Employee), Arlington, VAJune 4, 2015
While working at the hospital I was pregnant and a typical day would be to clean patients rooms. I learned a lot about what to expect before I gave birth to my child the management was slightly supportive during my pregnancy but the my co-workers and the hospital staff was fantastic. The hardest part was working while pregnant but oi enjoyed it because it made my pregnancy go by very fast.

Great Hospital for patients, not so much for employees
Clinical Anesthesia Technician - Cardiovascular (Current Employee), Arlington, VAFebruary 16, 2015
Pros: good staff, and good patient care. not a bad cafeteria either.
Cons: poor management, and high turnover for employees. benefits are fair.
There are some great people working at this hospital. And the service patients get is actually quite good. As a staff member though, there is noticeably bad management and poor pay. Annual raise is anywhere between 1-3 percent. Employee satisfaction is very low. There is considerable employee turnover in many departments. They are always hiring new people because of this.

challenging but fulfilling job.
bsn,rn (Former Employee), Arlington, VAJanuary 17, 2015
Pros: free parking
Cons: no time for break if you have it not free from the unit;taken out whether you use it or not
you have to sign up for schedules that you want and they'll consider it on their own staffing needs you may mostly get it at times. short of staff that vacation not being given as requested despite lots of vacation time earned. they encouraged advancement. my coworkers are like my family, we help each other out especially in scheduling but that had been curved lately ? for better control of scheduling and budgeting but harder on the unit. lots of willing staff to work extra but.... always very busy lots of turnovers-stressful but once you completed it, you felt good despite the stress that you were able to do it and did a good service to your patients. very good team work with therapists and case manager. improving with having a dietitian on board for the unit specifically to help lately. good support given by the doctors/surgeons, residents, and some nurse practitioners or physician assistants.
