    Pros

    The live well incentives are helpful with healthcare cost. This is a good benefit

    Cons

    In a long term care building it would be helpful to have a business office on site to assist with finance and activity of the building.

    Pros

    Really great stepping stone into other areas of healthcare IT.
    Great hours once you gain some seniority

    Cons

    If you are working in the support center be prepared to work extremely hard. They are understaffed and the call volume is massive. There could be 14-15 reps all on the phone with 15-30 calls holding. The Support Center is kind of like the red headed step child of their IT support. The rest of the building or teams have greater flexibility and able to manager their workflow better. If it''s a Monday, be prepared to come in, sit down and answer calls back to back to back.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff the Support Center accordingly so reps do not burn out.

    Current Employee - Home Infusion Coordinator in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Carolinas HealthCare System full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with, very fair. I've moved up from being a pharmacy tech to a home infusion coordinator, it took me about 3 years to do this, most employees do not advance above their current position as every one is specifically trained for certain skill sets.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunity for advancement within the branch that I currently work for. I would have to leave to advance my career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage teamwork and learning as much as possible from your staff.

    Pros

    Flexibility and Stability. As a PRN employee you can decide where and when you want to work. Perfect for working parents and students.

    Cons

    The pay is much less than other hospitals/agencies. Travelers make double to triple the amount. Which is basically what a float nurse does.
