    I have been working at MedStar Health full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good for people who are ambitious, self motivated and know where they would like to go. They usually promote within if you express and are proactive about showing you can go beyond your duties and offer to do more for them. They are also supportive about continued education. It is helpful if you make connections with fellow employees outside of your area.

    Cons

    Company will not usually not make an active effort to develop you (outside of what is required such as new software training or initiatives that they are implementing). There is a general turn around of employees from admins to nurses and physicians. While the facilities are usually nice, some areas need updates and the hospitals are losing market shares to John Hopkins and Inova. I would recommend this company as a stepping stone as you will learn that you can get stuck where you are easily.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide an active clear track for all your employees and actually enforce it. While employees should be rewarded for their effort and their drive, it is also a good practice to promote and develop your employees further. In other words, it is a lot easier to train and transform your current employees rather than having your employees leave for other opportunities and starting back from square one.
