    I have been working at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    We receive a lot of trraining

    Cons

    I think positions under physicians, nurses and therapists do not get paid enough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think we should managers should be able to give employees raises at their discretion, I think the merit raises are too small,

    I have been working at MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center

    Pros

    Good benefits, especially if you use MedStar facilities, strong patient care focus in nursing, new facilities with renovations underway in older part of hospital and President who leads by example

    Cons

    Salary increases are too low (1.5% ) and some middle management are not up to the task.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to increase annual salary adjustments or risk being a training ground for other hospitals as associates will leave after a couple of years for greener pastures. Hopefully, the new president can fix this. Also, find ways to increase career advancement to keep good people

    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

    Get real!

    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.
