    Pros

    Great benefits including tuition reimbursement, paid time off, Heath vision and dental insurance. Made some great friends. Chance for advancement

    Cons

    Disorganized management, employees not held accountable to same standards. Not all employees varied their weight while others did everything and never got recognized

    Advice to Management

    Notice the good your employees do instead of always focusing on the negative and mistakes made

    Pros

    The Staff is more like family. We have a good time at work while providing great care. Generally we all care about each other and strive to get along and support one another, especially at work.

    Cons

    The only thing negative that I think I could say is that, sometimes there isn't adequate security to keep the staff safe. I, more times than not, end up having to be a sort of security in order to keep my female constituents safe.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out a way to keep us safer while we are at work.

    Pros

    Actively encouraging people to take time off, within reason and to live a healthy lifestyle

    Pros

    Good opportunity to learn new things. They accept new grads/entry level employees for what should be mid-level jobs

    Cons

    Typically hire from the outside to fill higher positions and rarely promote from within. Not much loyalty shown.

    Advice to Management

    Actually follow the SPIRIT values and care about how the patients are affected with management decisions. Exhaust qualified internal candidates for upper lever vacancies before opening the search for external candidates. You're losing a myriad of talent to competitors because of this.

    I worked at MedStar Health full-time

    Pros

    Worked at at a MedStar hospital, co workers generally nice and helpful, amount of paid time off is a plus

    Cons

    If you are in support services(transporter) the work is mundane as you might expect, nurses and techs might be too busy to help when you need them(or on break), you see alot of the same patients over and over(some are rude) and you might get sick more often(these patients are very sick and on contact precautions=flu, cold like illnesses)
