    Doesn't Recommend

    I worked at MedStar Washington Hospital Center full-time

    Pros

    Great learning experience. If you want to learn and have the experience, it is the best place to learn. You get the sickest patients in the ICUs.

    Cons

    The most unfriendly coworkers to work with, with god-like complex who look down on floor nurses. There is very little supportive system among the staff. Dog eat dog world.

    Advice to Management

    Try to change the staff culture so the more experience nurses won't eat their youngs.
