Good but not great
Sentara offers decent benefits for the Hampton Roads area, the pay is even lower than the other local hospital systems. There is little room for professional growth or promotion.

Sentara Healthcare is a good place to receive experience.
No pension for new employees. 403B is still available. They have also decreased coverage for medical and increased premiums. Despite having merged with 2 additional health insurance companies.

It had a gym at work location. People working there were of higher intelligence and often were former clinicians trained in clinical information techn
Very good place to work. Corporation never furloughed anytime during my employment. Administration goal was to be in top 10 specialities nationwide. Mortality rates were the lowest of all hospital systems in the area. IT department usually ranked as the number one integrated shops in the country. I was proud to work there.

Very poor management at all levels
Run!!! Do not work here if you have morals! Management is very cliquish and unless you fit into their group you will have no success or support. Productivity standards are impossible to meet and you are forced to work off the clock to meet these standards. If productivity isn't met after so many days you get written up. They have tried to force me to do illegal practices and HR is NO support and will throw you under the bus along with management. There are different rules for employees based on how brown your nose is. This used to be an amazing place to work until the most recent management change 3-4 years ago now it is a dictatorship. I am actively seeking other employment.
Pros
co-workers, benefts, pay
Cons
everything else

Patient care
It is a very nice company to work for. There is always room for advancement in the company, if you apply yourself. The like to promote from within, they also support education. The benefits for education is excellent. They also have management classes if interested.

Leaves a lot to be desired
Not a good experience for me other than the hours and the fact that it was close to home. Upper level management at the Nursing Home was a joke after the administrator and DON both retired and the new ones were hired.
Pros
Residents
Cons
Upper level management at the Nursing Home

You are just a number
They don’t care about you as a person at Sentara Albemarle but I’ve been told it’s just the culture at that hospital.. management does not get their hands dirty and could care less if you sink or swim as long as they look good
Pros
Pays well
Cons
Lack of team work

Awesome career potential
A typical day at work included production challenges but good team work. Management strived to provide all tools for success. Some compartmentalizations noted but overall an excellent company to work for.

Good benefits
Good vacation and sick benefits. Vacation starts building up right away and can use it after 3 months instead of waiting for an entire year to have only one week of vacation like most jobs

Its not right to talk about another company
The company was good but they need to view all faxs about people and situations before making a statement about a person or people everyone should be in the same room or present, l love working for them,just something was not good

Fun place to work
Sentara is a great company to work for and if not for circumstances at home, I would never have left there. I miss RMH and the nurses there on 4 east, night shift. The best place to work, hands down

Run like a dog then left to fend for yourself
You work more to cover others mistakes while being told it's not good enough. Then they find loopholes to not comply with their own policies. Would not recommend to anyone looking for reliable work with competent leadership.
