    Pros

    Great benefits, educational opportunities, salaries are comparable, room to advance. New Hospital improvemen's coming.
    Metro DC area

    Cons

    Favoritism, all who you know to get the best positions and salaries. Outdated buildings, no oversight with some departments.
    Traffic

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in management style. It is uneven between union and non union employees in departments. Doctors need to be trained about how to treat their coworkers. Please Stop favoritism!

    Pros

    Ok place to work but Good benefits. Most operating hours are between 7am-6pm which makes the hours family friendly.

    Cons

    It is hard to go up the ladder. The idea of hiring current employee is crap (well in my department). Terrible parking if you have to drive daily,

    Advice to Management

    The Hospital did their best to appreciate their employees BUT... my department management sucks in appreciating their employee(i have experience different managements after few years here). So, I will say tot he management... "You do better if you treat your employees well"

    I have worked at MedStar Health for 16 years at multiple entities within the healthcare system. MedStar has given me many opportunities to advance my career, which is why I have stayed so long.

    Cons

    I cannot really think of any. Its been a great company for me.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.
