Not micromanaged and I love my current Supervisor. Contracting positions go to the company with lowest bid, which result in the employees taking all the risks. This usually ends with decrease in pay and or loss of some kind of benefit. As a contractor my opinion is somewhat clouded. However if I were GS this may be a more positive review.
I enjoy working at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. I have been there for almost 5 years and I have witnessed and participated in a lot of the development growth. Its also rewarding to know that your ultimate mission is to support our wounded warriors as they made the sacrifice to service our Country.
Training and continued development is encouraged
I want to utlize more of the training and skills that I've learned from PMI framework.
Unified Communications Architect (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – June 24, 2016
I worked at WRNMMC as a contractor,The central mission of the command is the care of active duty military, dependents, retirees and wounded warriors. The hospital is the pinnacle of military medicine, has several centers of excellence, conducts leading edge research and supports training of the next generation of military medical providers.
It seemed to be a great hospital when I was working there. The dining choices are excellent.
Horrible place to work. Bad communication between co-workers and higher ups.
Contractors don't get paid well and contracts last for a year and salary will then take a dive.
Government Contractor - Medical Support Assistant (Current Employee) – Bethesda, MD – June 24, 2016
The people are friendly...management can be unfair to contractors. You cannot complain about treatment and expect results as a contractor. Options are to to find another contract position or leave. I have to believe that other federal agencies are more complete.
General Duty Corpsman (Medical Assistant) (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – June 22, 2016
Working at Walter Reed on the Internal Medicine/Surgical Ward was the foundation of my medical experience. While providing great staff, such as the CNAs, Nurses, and Doctors to work beside, it also provides wonderful clinical experience for anybody in the medical field. The greatest part of the job was interacting with so many different people and providing them with the help they needed.
General Clerk II (Former Employee) – Bethesda, MD – March 30, 2016
During a typical day I supervise the front desk, greet the customers as they come in for meetings. The people I work with are very polite. The Management needs more communication as to how work needs to be completed in the office.
