    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company believes in Team. They encourage team involvment in and outside of work.

    Cons

    Hiring practices did not take into account the qualifications needed for some of the positions of the some of the team on board. Working under staff that did not meet the necessary qualifications of thier position was disappointed coming from a company that strives to create a strong team.

    Bureaucratic and in need of leadership overhaul

    Former Employee - IS Department

    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    -The work was not particularly challenging (pro or con, I guess)
    -Overall, the hospital as a whole seems to have good core values and goals.
    -Decent pay for a hospital

    Cons

    -Bureaucracy. Lots of red tape to deal with, unless when dealing with clinical (see next point).
    -I understand this is a hospital, but the IS department seemed to be run by the clinical leadership. It seems like the IS leadership are just 'yes men'.
    -In IS at least, promotions or transfers seemed to favor external candidates. When internal ones were selected, it seemed to be based more on politics.
    -Expensive health insurance, for a hospital!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Not every request from clinical leadership should be taken as law. Some projects can and SHOULD be denied!
    -Promote from within!
    -There are a handful of older, long time employees with stubborn, toxic personalities.

    Terrible Organization

    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center

    Pros

    There is nothing good to say about this organization.

    Cons

    It's like a cult there, if you don't drink the kool-aid then you are out the door. They have a total disregard for patient care.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The board of directors should fire them all!

    Pros

    Great foot in the door starter place for the medical field to gain experience.

    Cons

    Terrible benefits, wages and overall treatment of employees. Little to no room for growth and there was much nepotism that was overlooked as well as racist hypocrisies towards those who are white.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the micromanagement, provide better medical benefits- especially considering this is a MEDICAL facility and better overall pay.

    Former Employee - Patient Care Secretary in Annapolis, MD

    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great health benefits. Friendly staff. My direct supervisors and nurses were helpful and I believe that allowed me to grow into being a really good Patient Care Secretary.

    Cons

    Annapolis is a small town. Many from this town work at this hospital in every area. Do not get caught up in the gossip that may ensue. The initial general orientation was informative, yet it could have been presented in a less monotone and boring manner.

    Current Employee - Chemical Dependency Tech in Annapolis, MD

    I have been working at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Best Paying Hospital Around
    Tuition Reimbursement
    On-site classes and training
    Co-workers are great and considerate
    Patients come from a variety of different places in MD, very cultured

    Cons

    Pathways is sort of the "red headed step child" of AAMC since it is offsite.
    The consideration that the hospital gets Pathways doesn't.

    Insurance is very expensive for out of network providers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider pathways like a pavillion of the hospital.
    Even though it is offsite it deserves the same attention the hospital main campus does.

    Former Employee - Administrative in Annapolis, MD

    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I met people every day at the hospital with a myriad of emotions such as joy, sorrow, grief, etc. To be able to assist them, hug them or give an encouraging word is what provides me deep satisfaction and reward.

    Cons

    The downside was department nurses, doctors and techs extremely overworked and exhausted from the demands. Another downside is quality bedside patient care has been substituted with never ending charting and paperwork and micromanagement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some advice would be to cease immediately from telling employees there is no money and that every penny must be saved and every stone unturned to save, save, save. This poverty mentality makes medical staff feel guilty and unmotivated and they eventually look for other employment. The turnover of nurses is huge due to doubling up on their workload to save money and they are unable to do lunch most of the time or have breaks.
