    I have been working at Walter Reed Army Medical Center full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Health benefits are a major pro, free healthcare. The area is full of history and time off can be spent exploring the history of the capital region.

    Cons

    The command has no pulse on the hospital. Civilian staff push and bully the military lower enlisted around without fear of repercussion. Many enlisted will not reenlist because of this.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your military staff.

    I have been working at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Walter Reed is an extremely professional workplace, with lots of senior doctors who are all willing to talk to you about their respective fields. People are generally happy here and the company culture was very friendly.

    Cons

    Some of the initial training might be a bit overwhelming, but with hard work and perseverance, the work is very satisfying.

    Former Employee - Corporate Trainer

    I worked at Walter Reed Army Medical Center as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    The user community there was always eager to learn new technological concepts, despite the fact that the facility was closing and there were people who would be out of jobs even after 25+ years of service.

    Cons

    It was a run-down (albeit iconic) environment where career growth was limited and unfortunately it rubbed off on most levels of lower management and below.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upon transferring to the brand new Naval Hospital in Bethesda, MD, I would ensure that all new training opportunities are made available to transferees in order that they maintain a high quality of learning skills.
