    I worked at MedStar Health full-time

    Pros

    Most 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.

    Cons

    People 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 ManagementAdvice

    Hire more people and stop trying to condense staff.
