Exciting, full of energy
Registration/Admitting (Former Employee), Bel Air, MDNovember 25, 2013
Pros: hospital benefits, discounted lunches in the cafeteria
Cons: not very friendly co-workers
There was always some excitement going on, from woman in labor to car accidents coming through the emergency room. Never a dull moment. Also kept me on my feet. Co-workers were okay, but def had clicks that I didn't like and not very friendly toward new faces. Management was good.

Enjoyable work place
Certified Medical Assist/Certified Phlebotomy Tech (Current Employee), Havre de Grace, MDOctober 30, 2013
Pros: short drive time
Cons: low salary
A typical work day here begins at 6:30am and goes until about 5:30pm or until the last patient leaves. I am typically the first person in the parking lot and the last person to leave it. It's very hard to pin point certain things I've learned here since I've learned so much. I guess one thing would be the NextGen EMR System. This system handles our – more... patient charting and the flow through the office. I've also learned the front office operations and checking patients in and out as well as tracking them through the office flow. The Management here seems to care about your experience and how you are doing. My practice manager is very enthusiastic, she really seems to take pride in her job and this trickles down to our staff. My co-workers here are my family and like family we have our disagreement but we always seem to come together and take care of our patients. The hardest part of my job is the loss of a patient, I hate to see a Sympathy card on my desk. The most enjoyable part of my job is my job itself. I know it sounds corny but I love my job and the challenges it brings me everyday. I love working with my patients and my co-workers. – less

Not impressed
Applied for Hostess (Former Employee), CafeteriaSeptember 17, 2013
When I was interviewed for Hostess, they seemed to be concerned that I follow the rules, to the letter. They also seemed quite offended when I pointed out to them that this is food services, in a hospital; if the rules are not followed to the letter, sick people could become even sicker, or worse. Their attitude bothers me tremendously.

Worst Place I have ever worked (3 West)
Registered Nurse (Former Employee), Belair, MarylandSeptember 16, 2013
Pros: you have a job.
Cons: the staff are the worse including the nurse manager, staff rn's, and unit clerk
3 West was the WORST place, I repeat the WORST place I have ever worked. The Female RN's and the evening unit clerk on that unit, lie on new RN's assigned to the unit. They tell all kinds of untrue statements to get you terminated. They run to the nurse manager, who should be more professional and do her research before acting on their lies. If the – more... RN's on the unit don't like you, they will do down right DIRTY tricks to get you terminated. If you are an Afro-American and get offered a position on 3 West, my advise is RUN, don't take it. – less

poor work atmophere
pt acct rep (Former Employee), Upper Chesapeake healthSeptember 8, 2013
Pros: hours
Cons: management style
They say all the right things in public but behind close doors it is a cat fight. The management style encourages grade school tattle-tale behaviors instead of focusing on quality training and actual oversight of work.
The atmosphere is tense with fear of reprimand. The different departments do not communicate well and the work suffers for it. I felt – more... stifled. They do not want any one to speak up about the problems there. – less

Position (Current Employee), MDMay 4, 2013
The companies management has good intentions, but this is a place where you have to watch your back. I like most of my co-workers, but don't trust my own management.

Pharmacy Technican
Bel-Air, MD (Former Employee), Pharmacy TechincainMay 3, 2013

Cons: pay scale really sucks for the amount of work.

Productive and fun work environment!
Medical Technologist (Former Employee), Bel Air, MDMarch 26, 2013
Great benefits. Able to work with little or no supervision. Awesome management team! Hardest part of the job was when instrumentation broke down on busy nights. Most enjoyable part of the job was being part of team that was so determined towards helping patients.

Employment Opportunities Poor
Security Officer (Former Employee), Bel Air, MDMay 21, 2012
I found that as an Afro-American with two college degrees a lack of opportunity to work in other areas of the hospital. A typical day consisted of a lot of office politics with management. On a typical work day there is nothing but kaos in the facility

That management is really not supportive of employees. I enjoyed working with my co-workers but lack – more... enthusiam for management.

The job was not hard but made harder by management people. The most enjoyable part of the job was leaving. I left for medical reasons. – less

Wonderful place to work,
People make the job enjoyable,
Hated to leave,
