Disapproves of CEO

I have been working at MedStar Health full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Health benefits and vacation time are excellent

Cons

Senior Mgmt lines their pockets with of millions of dollars but does not want to promote their best people to senior levels (VP and above). One of the stingiest enviornments I have seen.

Advice to Management

Don't think you are fooling people with talk of valuing the workforce when people are not treated as assets, they are given tiny raises due to "poor economy" however MedStar has continued to gain huge profits through the recession. Management does not walk the talk.

    I have been working at MedStar Health full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great staff, very caring, Dr and Nurses knowledgeable. Most everyone willing to pitch in to make your stay or clinic visit comfortable.

    Cons

    The "clique" mentality. I'm an adult and do not like feeling like I need to compete w/ a clique or Supervisors "pet" to get answers to questions or help when I need it. Too many chiefs and not nearly enough Indians.

    Advice to Management

    Get your head out of your A## and start being leaders not following the lead of those that curry favor with you by sucking up or being your special firiend away from work. Friendship outside of work is OK< but leave that Friendship home when it comes to business dealings!!
