Medical Secretary/Medical Assistant (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VAApril 30, 2018
As a whole, I love working for Sentara. The medical Group was great as well. It was Management that was the sore spot here. They were extremely unapproachable and very sneaky.

RN Care Manager (Former Employee) –  Woodbridge, VAApril 11, 2018
I very much enjoyed my time here. The people are great for the most part. There does need to be a bit more of a balance between the operational side and the clinical side of the organization as it is healthcare. But overall a great place to work.

Worst job ever
MEDICAL ASSISTANT (Former Employee) –  Norfolk, VADecember 15, 2017
Sentara is definitely among the top 5 of the worst places I've ever worked. You don't get paid much and you are worked harder than some other medical facilities I've worked in and have gotten paid more. I would never recommend Sentara to anyone. Unfortunately, if you live in Virginia and want to work in medicine, you have no choice but to work for Sentara. This money grubbing corporation has the monopoly of healthcare facilities in Virginia. I don't even want to go there as a patient.
Pros
none that I can think of
Cons
Long hours, low salaray, horrible management

Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) (Former Employee) –  Virginia Beach, VADecember 13, 2017
A work day was always productive. I learned a lot while working within this company. Management was always prompt to answering any questions or concerns. Very diverse culture. Hardest part of the job was leaving.

Low salary, worked with different doctors who expected and requested for different things so you must have a good memory. This was a doctor's office schedule accommodations

Management was horrible and nasty. Very cut throat and didn't value or care about the team. Manager was not trustworthy or approachable because she would share your personal business.
Pros
Good coworkers and doctors
Cons
HORRIBLE management!!!!!

Competative Pay and Benefits
Practice Manager II (Current Employee) –  Williamsburg, VANovember 27, 2017
The pay for your position is competitive, however, there is not a great amount of opportunity to advance. Sentara does not value work experience as much as they do a diploma, so regardless of how much experience you have within this company, you will always get replaced with a new, young, fresh face with a diploma and, because you are the one with the know how, you are the one training them.
