    I have been working at MedStar Health part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Some managers are great to work with,especially Terrell Harris.

    Cons

    Some managers are poor managers,really lack the skill. Just because they have the credentials doesn't mean they know what to do.

    Advice to Management

    Be fair,let Medstar employees work first,call in contract if they can't.Some people depended on that income to take care of their family. Not fair to only call them in 3-4 days a month,but higher someone else,(outsider)when you knew your PRN person needed/wanted that position!!!!!!

    Pros

    They do not micromanage, but keep you in compliance with regulations. Great people. Open to suggestions to improve patient care.

    Cons

    You must negotiate your salary. Bonuses are not based on hard work alone. As the nature of large corporations, things can move slowly.

    I have been working at MedStar Health full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working with a lot of great people who are dedicated to their job and their patients.

    Cons

    The company likes to talk a lot about it's culture and values, but this isn't reflected in reality - just talk. The benefits offered are not very generous and seem designed to cut corners (for example, the 401k match is not offered your first year of employment).
