Medical Assistant (Former Employee) – Gaithersburg, MD – April 25, 2018
Only work here if you enjoy working long hours. Having more days off is lovely but not knowing when you will leave is exhausting. Expect to clean up vomit, stools, clean toilets because there is no maintenance crew.
Coworkers help out, benefits
No breaks, work 7:45 to whenever doctor is finished which can be 9 or 10pm or later
Service Response Center Rep (Former Employee) – Baltimore, MD – July 7, 2018
Worked there for a month and a half....a month and a half! I was told that I wasn't focused, didn't learn what I needed to learn, and it was a lie. I had learned and was doing well in my role. I feel I was wrongfully terminated due to discrimination! There is no security at Medstar, and they ensure that you can't fight back.
Laboratory (Current Employee) – MD – June 19, 2018
Ever since MedStar Health swallowed up this hospital, patient care has gone down the tubes. It is not the family and community oriented workplace it used to be. Now, it is a medical factory concerned only with padding out its bottom line. Every week we see more and more employees laid off and others' hours cut. The few replacement staff that they bring in are corporate lackeys. The upper level management do not listen to our pleas and solutions. It has become an environment where we are constantly fearing for our jobs and looking over our shoulders daily.
Nice PTO policy, but they have lost focus on those who work and work well. New leaders come in and delete employees that have been role models and loyal with long years of service. Culture is one of subdued and deadlines. Leaders do not respect those that report to them and they are not responsive to needs.
Poor HR leaders who are not truthful, do not promote or keep employees as changes occur
Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) – Clinton, MD – June 7, 2018
Medstar Medical Group is far the worst place to work for, the people there are horrible. The Medical Assistants does nothing but horse play and never take their job serious. No Team Environment. When you call them out on their behavior they lie and are backed up by management. Don’t ever try to talk to the Director she will never talk to you, Her life is far too important to talk to any employee in the office, you are a non-factor when it comes to problems. You can lose your job when you do your job! Do not work at Medstar Medical Group. If you take pride in your appearance please don’t work there you will be picked on and talked about. Don’t ever voice your concerns or opinions unless you would like to be a target!
No recognition, pay, favoritism, poor spirit values
Customer Service Representative (Current Employee) – Nottingham, MD – May 25, 2018
MedStar is a great place to work. I have learned so much in my 29 years of being a MedStar Employee. We work hard and sometimes play hard. We have team building activities, management team building activities, we have lunch provided and special acitivities during Patient Accounting week.
The supervisor was helpful before, during, and after my employment. Towards the end of my employment, a lot was going on with the management. The supervisor remained calm and tried to meet all our needs.
National Certified Med Asst (Current Employee) – Baltimore, MD – May 3, 2018
Patient focused and innovative. I am free to create and see my ideas unfold here. Very pleased so far. The hardest part of the job is delivering a harsh diagnoses. The most enjoyable are our associate appreciation parties annually!
Senior Director, Financial Planning and Analysis (Former Employee) – Columbia, MD – April 24, 2018
Great company. Knowledgeable management. Very collaborative environment. Great experience as far as learning opportunity. The company trusts employees to take responsibility and help to explore business opportunities.
Manager (Current Employee) – Washington/Metro, DC – April 16, 2018
There are many areas that have a great working environment, but this is not the case for the entire organization. There are still managers that mistreat staff as it pertains to micro-managing, unprofessional conversation, and clique systems. From a peer standpoint, most teams work very well together, collaborating as needed to complete assigned tasks. However, in many cases, there are situations where a mutual respect is not displayed for team members as it regards communication, or lack thereof.
I worked there for more than 10 years. I loved my job as an activity therapist/counselor. I enjoyed preparing for my groups and planning special activities for the patients. I then got another job, was asked to come back, making my same salary. Then we got a another manager, and she was a micro manager. I used the money that I made at UMH and put more than half if not more back into the activities for the patients that is served.
Prior to new management, I made employee of the month and received all kinds of rewards, etc., which gave me incentive to do even more, but, felt like it was not appreciated.
Was able to plan different kinds of activities to engage the patient.
