Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Chevy Chase, MD – January 27, 2013
Working at GUH Medstar was a great experience I was in a position to meet interesting people and be able to assist them to the best of my ability and beyond. Cosmetic Dermatology was introduced. I learned how to administer Laser treatment. The staff from management to co-workers for the better part were a delight to work with and under. Like a family member you don't always agree. The hardest part of the job was being talked down to by those over you. The most enjoyable part of the job was helping patients.

Locksmith1 (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 30, 2018
I advanced from maintenance mechanic to Locksmith1. Medstar is a very large corporation. Our department's management has been challenging. I've learned that healthcare can be a rewarding career. My favorite part of the job is having great comradery. Medstar offers a very diverse working culture.
This Hospital is very advanced and very good hospital.

Inventory Specialist (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – October 9, 2018
It can get stressful sometimes at Georgetown but over all its a good place to work. It's more friendly people there than it is mean. It's a fast paced work environment at times but you kind of get used to it
Patient Registration Associate (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – September 8, 2018
The environment seems pleasurable and conducive until you settle in and being to learn the ends and outs of that department. There is no growth, there is no support from manage, and there is no teamwork. Everyone has to fend for themselves and the management is non existent. Personally, I would stay away from this department if you ar looking for career growth.
Excellent Physicians and Engaged Hospital Leadership
Executive Department Administrator (Former Employee) – Washington, DC – August 12, 2018
The medical care provided at this hospital was fantastic. The highest levels of the executive leadership team were inclusive in their strategic visions and very helpful to assist as needed/asked. All levels of the hospital were very approachable. Some lower level employees were unprofessional.
Medstar is a company that is continuously growing. The upper management team is very accessible, you can talk to them about anything. The tuition reimbursement program has helped with my success in the healthcare industry.
Volunteer Services Coordinator (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – July 26, 2018
Leadership seems strongly driven to improve patient experience and the hospital as a whole. They do, however, tend to tell people how to do the jobs they hired these folks to do. If your suggestion as the accountable/responsible associate does not fit their expectation, they will tell you how to do it, regardless of your initial plans or recommendations. Their motivations are pure, but execution tends to be dismal.
Truly a patient first environment, but also pretty competitive. I have had multiple leaders who don't allow their direct reports to shine and thrive, instead they take the credit and micro-manage that person to be in the know about exactly what they are doing.
Parking is also offsite in Roslyn for many associates (certainly all new associates) must park in a garage, walk to the shuttle bus stop, ride the bus to campus, and then either ride a golf cart or walk up a 1/4 mile hill to the hospital campus.
Overall rewarding work, but there's some frustration when your own leadership becomes an obstacle to success.
