Mother/Baby RN (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCDecember 8, 2018
Great place to work as long as you are low key. They do not like people that go against the grain too much. They want everyone to mind their P's and Q's

I had loved working in Nuclear medicine
Nuclear Medicine physician (Former Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 28, 2018
The head persons that work to create a good relationship with employees, I FOUND ZERO PROBLEM.

The internal department in Radiology was the problems. And the day to day department functionary work tolerable and expected.

Where the problem truly existed, for me formed a culture that made daily routine from scheduling of outpatient, a major problem area. And the supported areas from the ancillary division for Radiology. Non existing, This includes scheduling for outpatient and transportation of in-patients. George Washington Hospital has good people that work there and those that try their best to keep a strong force together, are working within guide lines that aren't always reachable. So all together, they do their best under the circumstances.
Pros
love the patients
Cons
Many times no lunch breaks

MRI Technologist (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCOctober 23, 2018
I have worked part-time at GW for 12 yrs and have learned so much and have developed into a great MRI technologist and care giver. The management team is great and supportive because they allow us to work independently; without micro-managing. I feel honored to be on their team and am looking forward to a leadership opportunity; if one presents itself in the near future.

taking on 20-25 patient rooms a work shift
working at GWUH you learn a lot of differents ways and techniques on cleaning and about the products. management is ok! the workplace is very different and cultural. the hardest part of the job is remembering to use your pager, and the most enjoyable part is being there to help save lives.

Pros
stable organization, opportunities are there
Cons
driving to dc is not a fun activity
