    I worked at The GW Medical Faculty Associates full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay, certain team members. (Sadly that's it)

    Cons

    I was only here for 1 week. Travled from out of state for this job. They were very rude( manager and management) was called a slave basically and manager never looked me in my face my first time meeting. It's very unfortunate at how this company is run! There potential but only in certain departments. This goes to show why this company is always short staffed!!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to communicate with staff. Also, take time out to listen. Also, offices need to be more organized. Certain offices seem as though they need an upgrade very run down!!

    Pros

    It is close to the Metro, grocery stores and local shopping area.

    Cons

    No growth for administrative positions, benefits are not that great, evaluations have no bearing on yearly increases, evalutions are contradictory.

    Advice to Management

    Create equal opportunities for growth for the administrative staff.

    I worked at The GW Medical Faculty Associates full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The 2150 Pennsylvania location is very convenient to Foggy Bottom Metro!

    Cons

    Poor management, inadequate and poor training, too many cliques and favoritism amongst management and staff, management and leaders are disrespectful towards staff, and it's basically a very unorganized and dysfunctional organization that doesn't appreciate nor embrace the quality and years of expertise that's employees bring to this organization!

     Instead, your character is defamed by lies, and you're humiliated and disrespected by those who are intimidated by the knowledge and skills that you bring to the MFA, because they fear you surpassing them someday!!

    Advice to Management

    Please, make it a "mandate" that supervisors and managers of departments take courses via the MFA on conflict management and resolution, and how to be an effective and efficient leader, because they severely lack experience in these critical areas!! This is why the MFA frequently have job openings within the various departments, because department leaders are lax in the above mentioned areas!

    I worked at The GW Medical Faculty Associates full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working with great co-workers, helping patients and encountering learning experiences every day. My manager was great and promoted professional growth even if it was outside of the GW MFA.

    Cons

    The benefits package could be better and there's and lack of trust with higher-ups (which could be said for most companies). A couple of pending lawsuits from former staff doesn't help, either.

    Advice to Management

    Transparency with the staff goes along way.

    Great people and a wonderful team atmosphere among close colleagues. Many opportunities to advance due to high turn over.
