    I worked at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Physicians are great to work with for the most part. When I was supported my dept was great.

    Cons

    The CEO is cocky and ridiculous and unwilling to put time and resources into making the HR dept more than a cost center. There was no strategic thinking and the HR team was nothing but paper pushers run by an overworked, passive aggressive manager wannabe HR executive. There was little to no communication between clinical depts and positions were often abolished as a way to get rid of employees. Org structures were confusing and in at least one case a person supposedly hired by the CEO as a special projects person was suddenly announced to be the new PGA because of her relationship to a JV exec.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value your employees and don't give jobs to people based on who they know or are related to. Think strategically rather than with greediness.

    I worked at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates

    Pros

    Best part of working at MFA was meeting/helping patients and being appreciated for taking the time to listen and helpful by the patient.

    Cons

    Coworkers wanting to be seen as "I'm the only one working, see me working hard, no one else work hard as me, I can do everything and multitask "

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everyone is hired to do a job so allow them to do that job. We are not robots most things can be done differently and get the same end result so stop allowing those "attention seekers" to cause ripples in your team. Micro management is not the way to get good productivity.

    Pros

    Opportunity to attend school after 1year of service.

    Cons

    Promises of increased pay never materialized just more work

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People work hard to be advanced for their work. A raise should be given if unable to promote.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities for learning and career growth. Great people, great location.

    Cons

    Everything works completely differently in each department. There is no standardization across the board and leadership often places a focus more on pointing fingers and placing blame rather that resolving issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Standardize policies and procedures, reward promising employees, hire more HR representatives, decrease cost of employee health insurance.

    Pros

    You get to work with excellent physicians who still care about their patients.

    Cons

    Internally this organization is so disorganized. Senior management fights among themselves to play the blame game. And HR is the puppet of all PGAs. You are on your own!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on solutions than pointing fingers. And do not hesitate to promote talent otherwise you'll lose some very valuable employees.

    I have been working at George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great physicians and medical faculty
    Conveniently located near Metro and large variety of restaurants and eateries
    Access to urgent care

    Cons

    Extremely poor management and operations; chaotic; hostile, fearful work environment
    Many complaints of retribution/retaliation for filing HR complaints or reporting harassment (sexual, verbal)
    Poor leadership
    Very shady and unethical business practices
    Physicians have little to no say in scheduling, operations, work space, clinic layout
    Decisions made secretly and without input of medical faculty
    Elitist attitude towards employees/patients/contractors
    Poor treatment of employees and patients (from service perspective)
    Employees treated like children
    Blacklisted if you question inconsistencies in policies or practices
    Shady HR management
    Poor to non-existent benefits
    Low salaries; Annual increases very minimal despite large margins year after year (you'll always hear "well its a recession" or "healthcare is not doing well", " we'll re-evaluate your pay in 6 months" and it never happens. But the practice continues to open new offices and buy smaller groups)
    No break rooms or lunch areas
    Medical records of physicians and employees are snooped
    Emails snooped

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overhaul management with qualified professionals with education and experience with real health services operations/facilities. Rid the group of managers and administrators who were grandfathered in. They are ruining the reputation of the high-quality physicians.
