    Overall it is a good place to work.

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I liked working with the patients, co-workers, and being challenged to apply the skills that I learned
    The co-workers were helpful and are team players

    Cons

    After one of the managers left the job, there was little to no direction given. I wasn't getting the help I needed (a supervisor's help).

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are great and really care about the patients and each other.

    Health insurance is affordable and pretty comprehensive if you go to Adventist approved facilities & providers.

    Cons

    Mid-level managers are afraid to admit there are problems in their departments due to fear that upper management will fire employees/them as a "FIX" to the problem. As a result, nothing gets "fixed" until it becomes a crisis.

    I found out when I left there that they do not participate in COBRA due to a religious organization exemption. It took me a month to apply and get accepted for Obamacare, without that, I'd be declined for insurance due to multiple pre-existing conditions.

    Upper management changes frequently so it is difficult to have similar priorities from one management group to another.

    Advice to Management

    Offer COBRA to former employees even though you aren't required to. Make it very clear in new employee orientation that COBRA will not be offered for former employees during prospective employee interviews so they can make an informed decision about accepting a job offer.

    "Promises promises"

    Pros

    I really enjoyed working with my co-workers.Most of them genuinely cared about the pts.

    Cons

    The administration said they had one set of standards, but operated by another. I stopped an 11 yr old pt from harming himself, rather than watch him do it as another employee did and guess which one of us still has a job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop punishing people for making a decision when there is no SOP to specifically tell them what to do. Then, create the SOP to fill the hole. Give people an opportunity to give their side instead of just railroading them.

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare full-time

    Pros

    Most of the people who work there are kind, helpful and considerate. The facility itself is well-maintained and the organization tries to promote a culture of health and wellness without being too pushy.
    Their benefits are pretty good (almost free at any adventist facility) and they offer subsidized food at the cafeteria (with an additional discount for employees). They often have promotions for fitbits and other gadgets.

    Cons

    Depending on who your Nurse Manager is, you will either get treated well or poorly. Scheduling can be haphazard and asking for a day off is almost like committing a sin!
    As a psychiatric technician, you will not actually be doing any "psychiatric" work. Your day will basically revolve around escorting patients for food and keeping a check on them.

    Advice to Management

    Try to follow and encourage others to follow your value of "RESPECT"

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There is plenty of opportunity for ambitious individuals to get involved in improving business processes. There some really good supportive people you will work with. There a lot of Adventist institutions that this employer can prime you for.

    Cons

    Management is stagnant, and relatively noncompetitive for keeping top talent. There seems to be a culture of mediocrity that allow some people to resent those that strive for excellence. Some of the process improvement changes are met with fierce resistance.

    Advice to Management

    Compete for top talent, and support the individuals that are driving positive change.

    I worked at Adventist HealthCare full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Only the close proximity to folks living in Rockville or Gaithersburg.

    Cons

    Benefits are not good
    No work-life balance
    Poor and dumb management
    Fear and threats are often used by management

    Advice to Management

    Please encourage your employees to growth and be clear and honest when you first hire someone to a position, not misleading future hires with false expectations. I was terminated over the phone and on my day off, with false accusations of "abuse" of paid time off. Management is a joke, they do not like to hear any other side except for their own. They abuse your time, exploit you and when it's convenient they let you go in the most unprofessional manner. If you ever think of choosing them as your future employer, don't. They will make your life a living hell.
