    Pros

    Very smart people in some roles. Flexibility to work from home when needed

    Cons

    Egos abound. Sr management get last he bonuses. Does not trickle down 1.5% raise. They will keep piling the work till you crash and burn.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to what staff are telling you and asking for. I am a Director and get treated with little respect. Say thank you. If you ask for input use it from time to time.

    Pros

    I recommend MedStar as an employer. It is a good company to work at. I have worked at one of the hospitals and at the Corporate offices. They offer a great benefits package, a lot of vacation time, I have been with them for almost 8 years and I accumulate about 9 hours of Paid Time Off per paid period. Good health insurance coverage for the price you pay. Time off policies, I would say are very flexible in most departments. In the positions I have been, my schedule has been very flexible, probably because I am a salaried employee, schedule flexibility is more limited for hourly paid employees. They give you a tuition assistance, is not that much but it helps a lot. I paid great part of my Master's program with the money they give me.

    Cons

    My dissatisfaction at MedStar has been related to Career growth. It takes a lot of time for you to move up even if you have experience and education. If you keep applying and don't give up it happens, but again, ti takes time. The issue is that they don't hire from within, they don't give priority to internal candidates even if you work hard and perform well, they hire who they like, period. Also, salaries are not very competitive, depending on the position and the department, but in general, salaries are just ok. You may receive a cost of living increase every year, but that's almost nothing.

    Advice to Management

    To improve hiring processes, to give priority to internal candidates. To review the salary scale and make salaries more attractive and competitive.
