    I worked at Mary Washington Healthcare part-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They had pretty good benefits and once I finished high school they immediately made me .5 status which gave me benefits, including tuition reimbursement. After the first semester they actually paid the tuition up front and as long as I got at least a C in the course it was completely paid for. They also worked with my school schedule.

    Cons

    Steady went down hill. The turnover at the upper management positions was incredible. Sometimes they had absolutely no idea what was actually going on. They play a lot of favorites and there are a lot of relatives that have each others back. Sometimes they would complain because I stayed an extra five minutes on my break. But some people that were related to the managers would take their thirty minute breaks and then come back for a little then leave the hospital to go play the lottery. When I went to complain about that the would say don't be a snitch. But it was those exact people leaving to play the lottery that would be telling on me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop playing favorites and treat all your employees equally. If the job description says that you must be able to lift forty pounds and you can't lift it you shouldn't be working their. And stop letting certain people be lazy while others work extremely hard for zero recognition.

    I have been working at Mary Washington Healthcare full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are no longer any pros.

    Cons

    The hospital has sold of 3 departments, ( Environmental services/ housekeeping, Engineering and food service) to try to "update" certain departments to be more enticing to patients. I have to say you can decorate a turd any way you want, but it's still a turd. All the good nurses and doctors have left and we now have "traveling nurses" working in the hospitals. I'm sorry but a nurse with no ties to this community is not going to give her best, once she's seen how they treat their employees. All they care about is money and cutting positions. Nurses and CNA'a are being overloaded with patients and still expected to give outstanding service. Not gonna happen, you get what you pay for. This hospital has been sinking further down the drain over the last 4-5 years and continues to do so.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All management need to be TERMINATED! They act like puppets, threatening their employees and cutting staff to save their own butt regardless of the threat to the patients. Shame on you! Your no better than the people at the top, and you see where their at now. Everyone is "stepping down or retiring" yeah right! Truth is your butt got canned because of the mess you've made trying to do more work with fewer employees. You got what you deserve!

    For the community but not the employees..

    I have been working at Mary Washington Healthcare full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company is great as far as helping the community. For the position I worked I was at the switch board connecting callers to patients, departments, or associates. The job itself is very easy once you get the hang of it.

    Cons

    You have to be available 24/7 as you are considered essential personnel. Lack of communication between the teams and management. Failure to keep promises made to employees, along with no job security. The company is not making money therefore they cannot provide raises for current employees, nor hire the adequate amount of staff needed for proper everyday function of the office. They would rather work you to death than hire more staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accept feed back given by employees and take initiative and responsibility for change. No matter how much teams report things the company is complacent with the quality of work the management is providing and does not want change but it is WELL OVERDUE.

    Pros

    Pay was always on time.Paid Annual Leave was fair.

    Cons

    The HR department only listens to those that cry and complain. The department does whatever upper management tells them.When Director's aren't reprimanded for anything after numerous people go to HR about them, is really a testament to how business is done in this organization

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit lying and cheating associates.
