    I worked at The GW Medical Faculty Associates full-time

    Pros

    Salary and Foggy Bottom location.

    Cons

    The salary is above average at the expense of higher benefits cost, employee’s professional development, and diversity and inclusion initiatives. There is absolutely no transparency or accountability especially in business operations but what can you expect from organization who is poorly rated and as a distinct organization tries to mask themselves as a part of the University and Hospital. HR has no policy - e.g. no...

    Advice to Management

    Hire a HR and IT consultant, hire a project manager for business operations initiatives, perform an organization wide efficiency audit (there are plenty disengage new employees), implement work life balance and training & development, and find better resources to retain talent than compensation (the cost of healthcare premiums negates salary). Look into subsidized transportation benefits. Rebranding isn’t going to...

      Pros

      The patients that you get to care for.

      Cons

      There are many things that are indicative of an agency going downhill fast. Extremely expensive benefits with co-pays that are outlandish- some being over $75 for preventive care. Many junior staff members struggle to justify the cost of insurance through the MFA. They took away retirement benefits and implemented a hiring freeze to save money, yet hired multiple people in areas not necessarily needed. The staff are mostly...

      Advice to Management

      Reflect on the state of the staff. We are a medical facility, justify why we cannot take care of our own at better rates. Justify the lack of coverage availability, and stop making empty promises and avoiding questions about the true problems at the core of the organization.

      Pros

      Tremendous opportunities for growth, very agile and innovative C-suite, huge transformation initiative, culture transformation in progress and lots of clinical services growth is taking the organization in the right direction. Anyone and everyone can reach out to CEO with no need to go through admin assistant, CEO has an open door policy and reads every message, usually replies within a day sometimes within an hr if you...

      Cons

      Recruitment is a bit slower compared to other places, located in downtown DC and Arlington not a pleasurable commute with traffic

      Advice to Management

      Easy to get hired, multispecialty, lots of patients

      Cons

      No room for growth, favoritism, does not support or promote furthering education, expensive health insurance, management is not trustworthy, hiring freezes occur often which results in staff being overworked, HR does not support employees, no investment in employees....The list goes on and on

      Advice to Management

      Mr Kelly has his hands full. I feel bad for him because he wants this to be a good place to work.

      Pros

      Opportunity to grow because of such a lack of standard and experience from most employees. Including leadership sadly. Dr. Kelly has made a lot of improvements and improved transparency since he joined but it is going to take a very long time to weed out some of the leaders and to improve culture.

      Cons

      Culture, nepotism, incompetent leaders/managers, lack of job security, politics. HR needs significant improvement in most of their processes. Unfortunately, they are not a group I would ever trust to go to as an employee. No maternity leave, or vision coverage. Awful and expensive health benefits for a healthcare company.

      Advice to Management

      Reassess all of your leaders, improve the hiring and check references, there are individuals that make working here toxic. Some leaders and incompetent and rely on their staff which is not fair. Begin to recognize employees that truly put their all into their work and those that have worked here for over thirty years.
