    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time for 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.

    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 for 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.

    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    There is nothing good I can say about this place.

    Cons

    This is a terrible place to work. Management from the top down does not care about employees or patient care. Upper management continues to get bonuses while cutting the benefits and vacation of directors, managers and hourly staff. Directors and managers are hit with a biweekly cost above and beyond benefit cost. Directors get hit $40 per pay period. I was in a position that oversaw patient safety and items I brought up where swept under the rug. Facility is not maintained per Joint Commission requirements.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Board should fire them all!!

    Pros

    Team Members
    Hours
    Growth for employees
    Lovely environment to work in

    Cons

    Managers need training to improve their managerial skills.
    Raise percentages over the ye

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Send polls to employers before changes are made in their department. They are the ones working there and have wonderful IDEAS!

    I worked at Anne Arundel Medical Center full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The people are wonderful, dedicated, generous and just all around beautiful inside and out. The team spirit is wonderful, if you are drowning someone will always jump in and help you out. The benefits are really great! I had an expensive surgery there and it was completely paid in full!! That's great insurance.

    Cons

    Hard to get into the job. I had to walk in with a resume and refuse to leave until I got a job! it took a little doing but it was well worth it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know it's all about the money, but it's also all about the employees without which you would make no money. I have to say that for the most part the management is very fair with it's employees, jeep up the good work.

    Management is clueless, promoted beyond their capabilities.

    Pros

    Close to home. Great co-workers.

    Cons

    Management is clueless, only there for the money. AAMC executives turn their heads and "sweep under the rug" the blatant lack of true leadership. All they care about are their bonus checks and their title. You could erect a billboard listing their deficiencies and lies and they would still continue to deny, deny, deny. They have the community fooled, if the community knew what was going on behind the scenes there would be no more large donations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit lying and own up to and correct the money costing mistakes you have allowed to continue-that only impact employee paychecks.
