    Growing and stable

    RN Clinical (Current Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsLots of opportunities for growth and just about every possible aspect of healthcare available. They really respect their RNS and the work that they do--realizing they are a major reason the system is successful.

    ConsCommuting is a bear. The EHR is cumbersome and non-intuitive.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook into a better, all-in-one EHR. The band-aid fixes to Cerner are painful. Every day there are 3 new emails on how we have to document differently. It drives some practitioners away.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Hospital loves to combine two job titles under one to conserve capital.

    Transplant Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) Washington, DC

    ProsMost people were genuine to work with. There is great employee parking. The hospital provides a great atmosphere for meeting new people and networking. The highly recumbent this hospital beware of particular departments.

    ConsPeople may pass off work to coworkers often to cover themselves. This department will throw you into work without properly training you. Learn to act like you know what you are doing to get through the day.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire more people and stop trying to condense staff.
