    I have been working at Suburban Hospital full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Administration is great, love the people that I work with. Great internal opportunities even offer to help you transfer within the Johns Hopkins network.

    Cons

    Because of the area clients tend to have and air of rudeness at times. Drive sucks. According to older staff they have a salary cap.

    I worked at Suburban Hospital full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some awesome nurses, doctors, and supportive staff, great patients that educated me, and was exciting

    Cons

    no lunch breaks in the ER, craziness nonstop, paper schedules, and lack of upper management involvement to fix staff concerns

    Advice to Management

    Do what is necessary to fall within the appropriate guidelines of the labor board (lunch breaks) and get digital staffing capabilities.

    I have been working at Suburban Hospital part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits package is the best way better then Maryland health exchange.

    Cons

    Leadership plays major politics, only out for selves and they lie a lot

    Advice to Management

    Make your employees happy and they will work for you forever, pay your techs more per hour and allow them to attain other nursing certifications that can be reimbursed through the educational benifits 9ACLS, BTLS, EMT etc...)

    Pros

    Really great people
    Metro subsidy
    Shuttle from Metro to Hospital
    Great food in cafeteria

    Cons

    Management still confused about/resisting integration with Hopkins as a system after operating as a stand alone hospital for so long.
    Challenging boss; not trusting, resistant to new technologies, somewhat demeaning attitude most of the time from this particular person

    I have been working at Suburban Hospital full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people i worked with were very nice in my department

    Cons

    Parking is horrible. Laboratory staff gets treated like second class citizens by other departments. Your patient had a potassium of 7.5 in an unhemolyzed sample, the nurses don't care. You're constantly talked down to by lab administration and other departments. There is very little room for advancement or continuing education. If you're looking for a job with minimal oversight,this may be it. Lab administration is more concerned with checking the box than doing the right thing. Don't forget the critters that crawl around on the floor, this is the dirtiest lab I've ever seen. Lots of cliques and rumors fly around like the end of the world, which somehow end up on your annual review without even being asked if it was true or not. This is a terrible lab and hospital. I would never want to be a patient here!
