    I have been working at Holy Cross Hospital Silver Spring MD (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Very diverse hospital. They have many Flexible hours. Holy cross hospital is next to a metro station. The hospital hires new grads and is a teaching hospital.

    Cons

    Sometimes holy cross hospital is short staff and you might end up with seven patients. Their 24 hr visitation sometimes interfere with care or sleep of the patients.

    Advice to Management

    Holy cross is a friendly hospital to work. The labor and delivery unit is beyond amazing. The hospital gives opportunities to expand.

    I worked at Holy Cross Hospital Silver Spring MD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    In some areas staff is very nice and like a family, in other areas staff can be very rude. Culture changes unit to unit. Competitive-ish pay, especially compared to inner city hospitals. Also have generous student loan repayment assistance. It is a good place to get some experience, but go somewhere that treats staff better after that.

    Cons

    Staffing is ALWAYS too low, no matter where you are. Everything is about the budget. Suggestions or requests are never followed through on by upper management. Bad scheduling (forced to rotate days/nights, strict every other weekend). Clinical ladder is too much of a hassle. Off site parking.

    Advice to Management

    Stop micromanaging your staff that know how to do their job, focus on the bigger picture about what is best for our patients and community. Do not force staff to rotate days/nights with no future hope for being permanent day shift, and every other weekend is too much to ask. Staff your unit accordingly, and you will retain your existing staff.

    I have been working at Holy Cross Hospital Silver Spring MD part-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great Benefits, medical, dental, paid time off, and working in transport you get to go anywhere in hospital freely and access to every where. not to many places where a page won't work.

    Cons

    working in patient transport, a lot of walking not enough time to rest. hospital is huge and you will be physically drained after the workday is out.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be a little more nicer to employees and instead barking down their backs
