    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Children's National Health System full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I never experienced anything that could be classified as "good" working here, which is why I quit.

    Cons

    Do not work here if you are planning on doing research, specifically in Oncology. The environment is dangerously toxic and PI's that work in this department have no issue doing things that are technically against the law, while the hospital chooses to overlook them. To go along with this, the hospital itself really enjoys making doing the simplest things much harder than it needs to be. The hospital only cares about their rankings, not the people nor the employees.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about employees, there's a reason why I know of so many people who have quit in the past year.

    Magnet hospital that shows nurses are appreciated.
