Patient Service Assistant (Former Employee), Owings Mills, MD – August 19, 2014
Working at GBMC was a new and exciting challenge for me. I valued my coworkers and manager and could depend on them. The patients were pleasant. The hardest part of the work day was sending off the accounts for that day. The system was shutting down constantly and all I wished was that they found a better way of sending the information.
• Initial assessment of a patient’s condition and review pertinent medical records • Education of clients, family members, referral sources, and external payers regarding the effective and efficient utilization of program services and available resources • Completes all required preadmission screening documentation to determine that services are appropriate, – more... reasonable and necessary • Administer care to ill, injured, convalescent, or disabled patients • Order, interpret, and evaluate diagnostic tests to identify and assess patient's condition – less
Great for professional development but...............
Hospice aide (Former Employee), Home care – May 27, 2014
Pros: great benefits
Cons: hours aren't guaranteed
I gained a lot of education on hospice and palliative care. The only problem was that a hospice aide is a hourly position although the position may be full time your case load is dependent on the census. So if the patient census are low, so is your working hours and pay check! They will fail to tell you that during the interview process.
Surgical Technologist (Current Employee), Towson, MD – April 25, 2014
Pros: great people to work with, permanent shifts, flexible
Cons: benefits are high, management constantly changing
I enjoy working the off shifts because it is less noisy. Overall the doctors are easy to work with and I enjoy the diversity among the co-workers and the cases we do. I can say that I truly enjoy my job.
Nursing Student I & II; Student Nurse Tech (Former Employee), Baltimore, MD – April 3, 2014
Pros: long breaks, good co-workers, good management, clean hospital
I worked here as a CNA. The hospital was always clean and everyone was so friendly! I learned a lot about working with OR patients as well as the care of these patients before and after their procedures. My co-workers were fantastic, they were mostly older women but they were very kind and helpful when it came to teaching the CNAs new things. The hardest – more... part of the job was probably making sure everything got done in an adequate amount of time since the unit was only a daytime unit and everyone was supposed to leave by late afternoon to early evening. All in all I can't complain about working for GBMC it was a fantastic experience. – less
A pleasant place to work where my hard work was appreciated
Transcription Coordinator (Former Employee), Towson, MD – April 2, 2014
Pros: a wonderful boss, a pleasant atmosphere and flexible hours
Cons: none that would impact my job
I thoroughly enjoyed my work experience at GBMC as Transcription Coordinator. I supervised 19 transcriptionists and was a transcription myself as well. The work was plentiful and challenging but was eventually outsourced.

Secretary (Current Employee), Baltimore, Maryland – March 3, 2014
Pros: nice people
Cons: low wages, no grace period, short breaks, uncaring management
I thought I would advance with this company, but I'm quitting. Management has unrealistic rules and regulations. There is no grace period. If you are a minute or two late because of snow you will be written up. They do not accept doctor's notes so do not become sick you will be written up. Very stressful.
Also the hospital's intensive floor close all – more... the time which mean you will be canceled quite a bit. And the floors stay closed for weeks sometimes. – less
RN (Current Employee), Towson, MD – February 9, 2014
Pros: good salary
Cons: everything else
terrible place. They are losing good employees because HR is pro-management. Still employeed but aggressively attempting to get a new position, hopefully within the next two weeks. Really ashame. Was hoping to be at GBMC for the rest of my career.
Upper Management is all contracted. Walk around the hospital acting like they are working with the masses....not – more... so much. – less
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Towson, MD – October 31, 2013

Cons: cncology, but not research
Registered Nurse • Provided nursing services to general medical and medical oncology patients on the inpatient oncology unit. • Services included: education, chemotherapy administration, and monitoring patients on standard chemotherapy and research protocols. • Met age-related needs of patients based on growth and development norms.
Hostile work environment because of one staff member
Therapist (Former Employee), Therapy – October 16, 2013
Pros: the patients that i worked with, great benefits, great salary
Cons: worked through most lunches, stayed late, under appreciated, biased manager
Manager was great to work with and was a visionary but lacked the unbiased skills that a manager should have. Human Resources was unsupported and biased towards the institution and was NOT helpful in assisting in problem solving my two concerns. Two issues remained unresolved despite my desire to want to resolve them until the day I left. About 80% – more... of the time worked through lunch and about 60% of the time stayed late to complete the work. Unsupported by the manager, medical director and office manager for all the positive work that was done. Two other current employees feel the same way. Was reprimanded for every little thing that you didn't do, should have done or DIDN'T know that you should do because you weren't instruction and there wasn't a departmental policy manual to use as a reference. Had to work with a staff member that constantly was undermining my abilities and skills. Liked all my co-workers except this person who was a bully and supported by my manager. Best thing about the job was the patients that I worked with. They gave me a lot of positive feedback and support about their care. Good benefits, great facility overall but not this department from my perspective but patient care is excellent. Many excellent staff that are caring and compassionate towards the patients. – less
