    I worked at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    The best thing about working was being to provide exceptional customer service to our nursing staff, who provides patient care.

    Cons

    Needing supplies for staff to do their job , and constantly been it's not in the budget.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Supervisor's need support from upper management in order to do their job effectively. When dealing in customer service, that support should and must be there, to maintain a positive work flow.

    Pros

    Location is the only thing that comes to mind.

    Cons

    Low employee morale. No bonuses, no pay raise (1.25% is not a raise). Stressful. Upper management don't have a clue how to make things work. Too many people in upper management positions. Too few people in clinical/clerical areas where they are needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    MedStar offers great benefits with plenty of time off. Staff are mostly friendly and professional. HR really cares about the employee satisfaction. Lots of perks are offered: picnics, give-aways, fun contests. The new tower is nice.

    Cons

    Management does a poor job of firing poor performers (had a person in our department for 4.5 years before she finally resigned on her own. She shouldn't have made it past her 90 day eval.) The hospital as a whole really only recognizes our nursing department for good work but preaches team work and the SPIRIT values. Too many mico-managers.

    (Also, to the moron that posted about pharmacy department sucking: we know who you are and we are THRILLED that you're not longer here. You are the worst pharmacy technician in Maryland.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire poor performers, enforce attendance policies.. basically: practice what you preach.

    I worked at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great staff, appreciative of the opportunity, organized with all administrative duties, warm welcome when I was hired.

    Cons

    needs up to date software for all systems & units, wish HR department handled my termination in a better manner, no proper explanation during termination process, needs more diversity.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would like to advise that there be more diversity and more professionalism from Supervisors in departments when it comes to termination of employees. If the former employee has a valid explanation with proper documentation there should not be a termination. Especially, if a meeting is held specifically in their former department of employment upholding that employee to a standard that they've kept. No one who is fresh from school & having the opportunity of an entry level position should be wrongfully terminated due to an illness they cannot control.

    RN, full time Med/Surg

    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Baltimore, MD
    Current Employee - Registered Nurse in Baltimore, MD

    I have been working at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    On most Med-Surg there is only a 1 on call shift requirement per six weeks and only every third weekend required.

    Cons

    Staffing has not been great for over a year. Often working one or two nurses short. Frequently extra units are opened in the main parts of the hospital that were closed when the patient tower was opened. These units take from the tower units to staff. Many CNA's are unpleasant to work with and often missing from their assigned areas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There does not feel like floor nurses are supported. Many of the retention reasons are gone (bonuses, nurses gala, many events of nurses week).
